Controller for Mac
So I've been trying to get a controller to work for Steam for a while now, and nothing seems to work for me.
I'm using a Mac (currently running Mavericks; 10.9.2), and since I own a PS3 I figured that would be the best place to start. It didn't really work. I also downloaded Joystick Mapper trying to get it to work, but none of the buttons do what they are supposed to, and most of the time the joystick controllers just mess up where my mouse pointer is supposed to be (it typically moves the mouse to the top left corner, and then it just stays there).
I also tried buying an Xbox 360 controller (official, and wired) but no matter what I try, my computer doesn't recognize it (I've tried both current and .11 versions of tattiebogle).

Obviously there has to be SOME controller that works with Steam (and hopefully with Macs). Anyone have any suggestions?

Hi, so i set up a ds4 pad with joystik mapper on my macbook air and it works perfectly with steam big picture, but when i try to play bioshock infinite, the pad stops working.
any ideas on what im doing wrong?

Bioshock infinite has controller support, you should disable joystick mapper before lauching, this should fix it

The original xbox controller I got was an "official xbox" one, but wasn't "official official" enough. (It was the Call of Duty special edition version or something, and didn't work as a result). I went to GameStop and got a REAL xbox regular controller, then downloaded Tattieboggle to help with the drivers, and it works perfectly.

The person who developed the drivers hasn't been active recently, so you need to search around the Internet for other people's fixes everytime Mac updates.

Try going to system preferences on your mac, plug it in through your charger to the USB port and try to sync it

Thought I'd give my setup that worked with pretty good results.

MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014) OS X Yosemite 10.10.1

Controller: Logitech F310
using the 360 Controller driver (an unofficial release from GitHub:

Without the driver, the remote did work when it was set to "D" on the back, however was not recognized as a remote. When I installed the driver, I was able to use the "X" input and my games that supported controller recognized it.

I don't have very many games that I use the controller, but it does work very well in the following that I own:
-Grid 2
-Rogue Legacy
-Castle Crashers

Hope this helps!
