Fix for SMB using Mac and Xbox 360 controller
I've managed to get SMB and my Xbox 360 controller working together. I don't know if it will work for everyone, but you might want to give it a go....

My configuration
  • OS 10.8 Mountain Lion
  • Tattiebogle XBox 360 Controller Driver Version 0.12
  • Joystick Mapper software (version 1.1.1)
  • Official Microsoft XBox 360 USB wired controller

Setting up the 360 controller

Joystick Mapper instructions

SMB game menu
Start SMB in Steam. Make sure you have the controller plugged in and the Joystick Mapper SMB preset ticked. You should now be able to do the following...
  • Left analogue joystick to move up/down/left/right in menus
  • A button = Accept
  • B button = Back

SMB game controls
Once the game play starts try...
  • DPad = left and right
  • A button = Jump
  • B button = Escape to menu
  • Left trigger = Run/Special

Feel free to edit and improve
This is my first time trying to do something like this. I hope the community can improve on it.

Your guide is awsome. I don't know why the developers aren't fixing this problem.

Thank you!

You know, I've been asking myself the same thing. It's kind of sad since SMB is such an awesome game.

How'd you get the game working with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion? Keeps crashing on me.

Well it works best for me in windowed mode but it does crash constantly. Unfortunately the dev(s) of SMB have stated they will do nothing in terms of maintenance for SMB on Mac.

What a crock.

Thank you but the mapping does not work correctly. There is no way to map the digital down button. Both with your preset and with my own mapping the game does not let me go down in the menu. What ever I do it always triggers the activate or jump button (space).

Not that it matters since the game crashes every 20 seconds on mac. :(

Unplugged the controller and relaunched Joystick Mapper. Now it works fine. Thanks!

Glad it works - it's still a nasty hack though.

I am very thank you for your share.
I do disappoint to the game developers ...

Thanks for this guide. Joystick Mapper is a pretty cool app I've discovered.

Though the problem is actually with the Tattiebogle drivers not mapping the controller buttons the same as any other HID game controller. You can see what I mean when you look at this page on the Unity3D Wiki[wiki.unity3d.com]. I've been attempting to get in contact with the driver developer to resolve this.
