Gamepad support on Mac OSX
I just re-installed Super Meat Boy after few months. I was prepared that my Xbox360 wireless pad wouldn't work, as it didn't work last time and here http://supermeatboy.com/115/Things_every_Mac_user_should_know___/ Team Meat promise that it will never work ;-)

So I had two other USB gamepads ready. To my surprise neither of those got detected my SMB. I am pretty sure I used Saitek P2500 one months ago with SMB with no problems. So I worked around that using GamePad Companion, it worked ok.

Just for curiosity I plugged in the XBox360 pad and lo and behold it just worked, menus included. So obviously the promise not to support XBox360 controller had been broken, great!

I am happy, although to be perfect I would prefer to be able to use either analog controls or dpad, now it seems that I can only use dpad. Can I change that? Is it a known issue that other USB controllers are no longer working or is it something on my end only?

Yeah, there were some heavy Mac updates after that blog post, including X360 controller support. :)

It should work with analog sticks. Best plan is to go configure the controller in Steam Big Picture Mode. Then it should work with Super Meat Boy when you launch from Steam (you don't actually have to launch from Big Picture if you don't want to, you just need to use Big Picture to configure the controller once).
