The latest release of the driver includes support, and I'll be updating the USB information section of this website shortly. I've not yet checked the wireless receiver for compatibility. I have added a version of the driver without support for the Guitar Hero controller, to allow the Guitar Hero for Mac game to work it attempts to access hardware directly, which doesn't work if a real driver has claimed the device. It works by automatically tweaking the driver's Info.

The Driver disk image contains an installer, which when run will install the driver, and a Preference Pane to control it. If you find the driver does not work for you, please attempt and find out as much as you can about the device, preferably using the Apple "USB Prober" application provided with the developer tools, but the output of System Profiler for the device may be enough.

E-mail it back and I'll try and work with you to get it working. Games I've currently tested for force feedback support only games that support basic rumble will probably function currently, as I've only implemented triangle, square and sine wave-type effects.

I also lack any other force feedback device for comparison : :.

I just received the 3rd party wireless receiver. My Xbox controller works like a charm with it with no issues. Do you happen to have a link to the working 3rd party receiver? The latest feedback is from mine there. Thanks for posting the link Kasun! Any ideas?

Honestly not a clue. I never had 2 controllers so I have not been able to test it. My suggestion: post a bug report on the github page of the developer. If so; consider connecting the 2nd controller to another USB port? Might be worth a try.

As an alternative, you can assign keystrokes to controller moves or clicks. Maybe that helps. We already do this, and still crashes at sleep.

  6. Did you check the GitHub page — I know the developer is not always quick in responding, but another user might have found a work-around? Maybe you can find something in the power settings ie. Since multiple folks run into the same issue with the wireless controller assuming you all use the original Microsoft controller ; consider opening a support ticket on the GitHub page link. If the controller works in this menu, then the driver is operating as intended. Remember that wireless controllers must be connected using a wireless adapter. If that works well which I assume it will , switching to the Mac may or may not work as well.

    I have seen a few users that seem to run into issues though. So make sure you can return the product in case you run into issues. Hello there. I have bought both items for this to work. My controller lights start to spin around in a circle like its trying to connect. Then the spinning circle goes back to a blinking circle and the receiver light goes off. What do I do? If anyone could do this is would be much appreciated :D.

    I have not encountered this problem. Folks reading this article should be aware that Wireless Controllers and specifically, the Wireless Xbox controllers using the Receiver, official or otherwise are explicitly NOT supported with the referenced open source driver. This issue cannot be resolved with minor changes to the driver, and requires that the driver be re-written from scratch to resolve the issue.

    Due to an excess of caution, we have disabled Wireless Xbox controller support as of 0. If you want to use a wireless controller, download 0. Alternatively, you can revert to a macOS version before Excellent find Thomas — thank you for posting it here. I myself do not use the controller on my Mac all that often, and I use a wired controller XBox One , so I had not noticed the issue. Thanks again Thomas!

    Are you using a wired controller eg. Or a wireless controller?

    With either controllers: try a different USB port but you probably have already done this. Does anybody have any advice? Not sure if this will work of course, since I do not have Skyrim. I did find this post — not sure how helpful this is since I do not have Skyrim.

    I suspect it works kind-a like the additional tools mentioned under Step 5 -Configuring for All Games. Its running High Sierra. The lights on the home button flash, but thats it. I cant see to get it to work. You may get lucky though and it may or may not work with yours. If none of these drivers work probably should not have multiple drivers installed! So I have the Xbox controller and I bought a wireless receiver but when I try to pair the receiver turns off. I already installed the driver so I dont know what is going on. With both options drivers , the use of not genuine Microsoft hardware, things may or may not work properly.

    Downloaded and started the install. Installation got stuck at security preference set up and so I had to Force Quit it. When trying to install again it became stuck at waiting for other installations to complete. Waited for a loooooong time and had to force quit it again. Did a hard shut down of the computer and attempted to install it again. It froze again. However the icon is in my System preferences and the driver is not working properly. First off, which version MacOS are you running? Second question; which of the drivers did you try?
