Use Xbox 360 controller with Mac!

Hi there, this is the updated tutorial of how to use an xbox 360 controller with your mac!
(updated as of 1. Feb 2013)

Simply make sure you have a working installation of at least version 0.11 of the 360 drivers on your Mac. You can download them from here
If you have a third party 360 gamepad download this file: Extra Gamepads Installer (Adds 65 third party devices to the supported list).
Open the .command file (you might need to right click on the file and select "Open" to avoid annoying GateKeeper stuff) and enter your admin password when prompted. Your password is not displayed when you type just press enter once you have typed it in and the script will run.

Installing the driver will add support for the 360 gamepad and a few others. Running the script will add 65 third party gamepads and fight sticks. I don't offer any guarantees (neither do Feral) for the script but it seems to work well so far. If the pad is picked up by the drivers it should work in most/all games that support gamepads.

The 65 supported devices so far are:

(Big hat-tip to Cesium133x for his simple guide that helped for the basis of my more streamlined script using the newer 0.11 drivers instead of the older 0.08 drivers)

Unless your game does work with gamepads I would recommend avoiding Gamepad Companion. It overrides the built in game support often making things harder not easier. If you are trying to play any Feral game I would not use Gamepad companion as we have support for over 100 gamepads now without needing anything installed or setup beyond the 360 driver for 360 pads.

If you ask nicely and email Edwin at padsupport@feralinteractive.com with the Device name, USB Device and Vendor ID for a third party 360 device he can add it to the script and update the download link for everyone.

(All credit for this goes to Edwin or edddieduck)
