Works pretty good, but… only with 0.11

0.12 don't see my wired controller. I'm using osx 10.7.5.

My other concern is that it won't remember my deadzone settings. I have to re-set them at every mac os restart. A bit tedious…

Worked well with Snow Leopard and Lion, sometimes with Mountain Lion and now not at all with Mavericks.

The plug-in does not recognise or pick up that a wired controller has been plugged in and when the controller is unplugged it cause the macbook to crash and restart. A wireless controller never worked for me in any version of Mac.

same here - controller does not connect...

xbox wireless controller - ms receiver - os 10.6.8

There must be a bug, since the previous version 0.11 works fine. It is still available at the developers site.

So, I'm able to download the program fine on my MacBook Pro running OSX 10.7.5. Now when I open the program up under System Preferences it is unable to locate a device. The controller is plugged into the USB port... My controller just blinks a solid green circle... Is there any advice or trouble shooting I could do? I'm trying to play GTA for what it's worth. I've tried restarting my computer. I've installed it several times leaving the controller plugged in and unplugged to see if that made a difference. Every little thing I can think of doesn't work. I don't know if it just wont work with this controller OR if I'm just doing something wrong. Thank you for your help in advance.

This sounds like a great thing but on an iBook G4, PowerBook G4 and a PowerMac G4, it doesn't work. At all. The controller is never recognized by the computer or the 360 Controller Preferences. I've tried using this with every new version that's released but none work with these computers. And now that his PowerMac G5 has died, for some reason every single version of it (including the original) on his website no longer works with PowerPC based Macs. Well, at least the preferences pane doesn't. (It flat out says, "this preference pane cannot be opened because it is not compatible with PowerPC based Macs." I've never heard of a PREFERENCE PANE being Intel or PPC based.)
This is garbage.

The Preference Pane is the front end for a driver, which IS Intel only.

No, since the charging cable is only for charging, but you can plug the wireless receiver.

EW4004 had trouble on 30 Mar 2014
MacBook Pro running 10.7.5. Bought new Microsoft Xbox Controller bundled with receiver. Installed the TattieBogle driver. Restarted. Plugged in the the receiver (no light on). Turned on the controller. Controller shows solid blinking circle. Pressed and held button on receiver a few secs til blinking. Pressed little button on back of controller until circle is spinning.

As soon as they're on together they both stop but don't sync. Receiver stops blinking, controller goes back to solid blinking circle. I've reinstalled the driver a few times. Tried starting receiver searching first, controller searching first. But they won't sync. Xbox 360 Controllers SysPref pane hasn't registered anything other than No Devices Found.

Suggestions? Muchas gracias!

Since 10.8.4, I've been having trouble with the controller not being recognized. When I disconnect it, there is a kernel panic. This was happening with version 0.11, so I updated to 0.12, which works similarly. I've submitted the crash reports to Apple.

Does anyone know how to get this to work with a Hori Real Arcade Pro EX-SE control stick? This controller works fine in windows with the official driver, but this controller for the Mac doesn't seem to recognize it. The web site isn't terribly helpful, but mentions some plist file that perhaps I can edit to add support for this controller, but what plist file?

You can open a new finder window and do a search. You have to make sure its set to show system files, it'll be located in your library folder or the systems library folder. You can edit it with Text Edit, but if you have the developer tools installed, I would recommend using Property List Editor

I still can't find that file. I found files 360Controller.kext and Wireless360Controller.kext in /System/Library/Extensions/, but nowhere can I find anything called XBox 360 Controller Driver with or with an extension. Would you look for that file on your system and let me know where you found it? Also, are you the developer or a user of the driver?
