Issues with Controller Install List.

When I try to install the controller lists with the InstallControllerList, I'm greeted with this prompt:

"The action 'Copy Finder Items' encountered a problem. Check the actions properties and try running the workflow again."

What is the issue, and how do I resolve it? Thanks.

I go to this point and the video he posted on youtube got me to this point and someone from youtube said you need to move the controller list to the download folder, then open the installer and open the controller list within the installer and it should work.

Below are some instructions you can follow if you would like try and get your 3rd party device working on the Mac.

1. Install the 0.11 tattiebogle drivers.

2. Download and run the extra pad suppport script.

3. Reboot your mac and plug your gamepad into your Mac
4. Check if the pad is picked up by the drivers. You can do this in system preferences in the "Xbox 360 Controllers" button in the "Other" section of the window.
So I followed this process and was disappointed that it didn't work. Here's the issue... while it "disappears" after I plug in, the computer still registers it's there. It has the bug where if you unplug it the computer resets. The ONLY way I have found to make it work is to plug it in, then restart. My computer will always tell me it restarted because of an error and acts like it had crashed instead of me telling it to restart. The controller HAS to be plugged in before the computer restarts or it won't show up. When the restart has occurred with the controller plugs in, it now shows up as properly connected in the preferences pane. All the buttons work and everything.

I really, really wish there was a way to do this without having to restart my computer just to make it work. It doesn't seem like a big deal but I use the controller for my desktop AND my laptop so I have to reset every time I move the controller to a different computer for various games.

If anyone figures out how to fix this, let me know. Otherwise, if you're still having the same issue I was having before, just try restarting with the controller plugged in and see if that works as a temp fix for you.

Hey guys I followed all instructions on one of the first posts to get my computer to recognize my Afterglow controller. Everything went smoothly except when I run Borderlands 2, it won't recognize it. My computer still does, but the game doesn't. Just for clarification, I am NOT using Steam, I'm just running the BL2 app from the App Store. Anyone have any suggestions?

Success: Works for Afterglow AX.1 with OS X 10.9.1 Mavericks

Hey Fraaaa,

Thanks sooo much for all the careful attention to detail you invested in your text+video tutorial. Two years plus a day later, I can happily confirm that this method (including all its download links) worked perfectly first time on my 2009 vintage MacBook Pro, with these parameters:
  • Gamepad: Afterglow AX.1 Wired XBOX 360 Controller
  • OS X: 10.9.1 Mavericks
  • Game: ‘Deus Ex: Human Revolution’ v1.0.1
Blessings of Ceiling Cat and the FSM be upon you now and forever more, Fraaaa!

Peace-&-Love,

Dalinian
