XBox HID Driver

1.2
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.

@flix21 - Are you actually using it or just advertizing it?

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.

Try the XBOX360 Controller Driver above, under similar software (or search here on the site). It works great on every controller I've tried.

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.
