ControllerMate4.11.1

11 October 2018

Use a joystick, gamepad, or trackball in place of your keyboard.

Overview

Note: ControllerMate is not being sold anymore and is listed only for people who had purchased it in the past.

ControllerMate is a controller programming tool that allows custom functionality to be added to standard HID devices (joysticks, trackballs, gamepads, keyboards, and more).

Using a graphical interface and drag-and-drop editing, users can program controller buttons to perform complex keyboard and mouse sequences. Programming is accomplished using "building blocks". Each type of building block performs a different type of function. Building blocks can be individually configured and linked together to perform an endless variety of tasks.

Common programming tasks that can be performed with ControllerMate include:

  • Configuring controller buttons to act like individual keyboard keys
  • Configuring controller buttons to generate simple text
  • Configuring controller axes to act like mouse axes
  • Assigning an AppleScript to a controller button
  • Redefining keyboard keys
  • Assigning a custom acceleration curve to a mouse

What's new in ControllerMate

Version 4.11.1:
  • Fixes an issue that would cause ControllerMate’s background to sometimes reset a device’s driver to its default configuration instead of using custom Driver Configuration settings.
  • Fixes an incompatibility between macOS 10.14 Mojave and some scripts that were run using ControllerMate’s AppleScript building blocks.
  • Improves the compatibility with some versions of the X-keys XKE-124 T-bar to hide the unused joystick interface.

simply nothing compares! it's the most powerful and flexible app in this category but such power has a cost in terms of simplicity and ease of use a tool definitively recommended only to power users

Seems so promising but way too complicated and convoluted. THere are other options out there with almost the same "power" but with much more friendly interfaces.

I know that it costs some - but not so very much - efforts to offer a build for OS 10.6+, but pleeeeaaaase be so kind and do the stable community of good ol' Snow Leopard users a favour... (by the way: no need to discuss pros/cons of SL here...)

It may take a while to take a grasp of it, but when do you, this app is a killer.

I would love to buy it on Mac App Store, so i can easily update, install on my 3 Macs and i don't need another payment form. So please put it on Mac App Store too other than your website. I will buy it anyway in the near future, but i would love to have as a MAS software. thanks anyway for listening and thanks for your awesome software, it is nice to see such a great name in Mac land still being update after many years!

From the ReadMe: What's New in ControllerMate v4.5.2? ControllerMate v4.5.2 fixes a bug that could cause programming containing custom controls to be imported incorrectly into ControllerMate v4.5. Thanks ... Ken

This is one of my favorite programs. I just customized the three top buttons on my Logitech N305 keypad. I have also customized the “ball flick” on my trackpad (when it was supported): If I flicked it up then down a keystroke was played. If I flicked it right then left another action was triggered. Newer drivers for my trackpad are not supported by Controllermate. I have a Logitech Cordless Optical Trackman (the best ever made IMO). Thanks ... Ken
