XBox HID Driver1.2

24 June 2007

Improve your XBox controller's compatibility with your Mac.

Overview

XBox HID Driver extends and improves your XBox controller's compatibility with your Mac.

With an adapter, the XBox controller (and other XBox peripherals) can be plugged into a PC or Mac's USB port. However, the XBox controller is not HID-compatible, so it is not usable by games or applications without a special driver. For some time, these drivers have been available for Windows and Linux. This driver is the first to support the XBox controller on Mac OS X.

This software installs a kernel extension (driver) that turns the XBox Gamepad into first-class HID citizen. Translation: it will work with any Mac OS X game/application that supports gamepads, including GamePad Companion and SimpleSoft's XGamePad software.

The full source code is available on the project website.

I downloaded this software excited that it would actually work but it won't pick up my controller. I used an afterglow wired controller. X Box doesn't make wired controllers anymore; most of them have gone third party. I'd appreciate any help on this. Thanks.

Well I am so glad I supported this dev by paying for the driver a couple months ago. Granted, it was only $5 or something but to have it go free now just seems like I wasted my money. Oh well.

I can't seem to get my XBOX controller to work with MacMAME or MAME OS X. Is it compatible? Also, NANNASSY, I couldn't find a 360 driver here, but there is one at Versiontracker.com. (Too bad I don't have a 360 controller!)

Awesome, now I can get carpal tunnel faster! No longer must I only subject myself to the awful design of the glorified penis extension known as the XBox controller when I play Halo 2. Disability check here I come!

Should be free. I suppose no one is willing to make contributions anymore.

Umar: I've been playing Halo with an XBox controller (duh) since its inception, and I destroy everybody. If the driver is sound I'm sure I'll be fine against anybody with or without a mouse. (When you reach a level where you can kill anybody with the minimum shots required for whatever weapon, your reflexes are good enough to compensate for lack of mouse.)

USB adaptor (you COULD'VE RTFM, too): www.lik-sang.com, there's adaptors for different systems, but apparently only the XBox controller has someone working on HID drivers. Oh, Acrappiness, you play online with a pad against mouse/keyboard players and you WILL have your ass handed to you- believe me, I've been playing for years, gamepad players are usually shit last.

This is awesome, except I'm not particularly a fan of the XBox controller. It worked fairly well, no crashes or anything. Did I understand correctly that the XBox DVD controller could be used too? Anyone have any idea if these exist for the CameCube or PS2 controllers? (and are there adapters?). Email any reply please.

This sounds like a great idea. When Halo comes out for the Mac, I'll pick it up and an adaptor so that I can play online with Xbox-controlling goodness.
