PS3 (Sixaxis) controller on OSX LT2 issue
I'm trying to play using a Sixaxis controller on my Mac and the game is working with every button except for the left #2 (forward throttle). I can go in reverse, just not forward. The W key on the keyboard works.



I've tested the controller in other games and they work fine so I've ruled out the physical hardware and bluetooth connection.



Any suggestions?

Hi, does the controller (except for the LT2 button) work natively, or do you use some program to get it working? I'm asking because Unreal Engine 4 does not support DirectInput at the moment, only XInput, which I'm guessing is the root of this problem. It might also be related to the fact that LT can be used as button or as axis. As we're going the standard unreal engine key mapping way I don't think there's much we can do at this point. You could try using a program that converts DirectInput to XInput (which we are doing here at work in order to get PS4 controllers working under Windows).

The PS3 Sixaxis, or DS3 does work natively on macOS/OS X. I have this exact same problem (and reported it months ago). It uses DirectInput though and not XInput.

OP, I use a software called ControllerMate that I have used to just bind the L2 button to the W key to get around this issue. It is possible to have that software running in the background to create that binding without disrupting the other controls.

Using this method, I am able to play with a DS3 controller.

We did not release 0.4 on Mac due to a few issues. We were able to fix these and version 0.7 will be available for Mac in about 6 hours. Unfortunately something went wrong in the build process of the Mac version, sorry for the inconvenience

Update: Bad news, the mac build that we just prepared for Steam is crashing on start. So no new build today and we won't be back in the office until Tuesday (easter holidays). We're kindly asking for your understanding and your patience. Sorry!
