    Any game that supports a controller (also labeled as gamepads, joypads, etc.)

    How about GTA San Andreas? Do you know off hand if that will work?

    There are a few solutions to make PS3 controller work for any game. I tried a couple but I prefered Game Companion from the Mac Appstore.

    Any Feral game in the Mac AppStore that is a controller based game will work with the PS3 without any drivers. Don't use things like Gamepad Companion with Feral games it will just break our built in pad support.

    Very correct. If the game supports it then no need to turn it on. Just put out there for the ones that don't.

    Sorry for sounding like a broken record just one of our common support emails is:

    I have this now ingrained relax action after years or posting on forums about pad support. :) Now when I see Gamepad Companion mentioned I just remind people that you don't need these apps enabled unless you are using a game which has no pad support.

    Everything I have worked on at Feral will have pad support (unless it is not a pad type game).

    I understand. GamePad companion has a Mac Appstore app so it handles within the sandbox. So if it wasn't on would't it's services stop interfering with other items?

    Sandbox does not exist (yet) for Mac App Store apps.

    Gamepad Companion takes over any connected USB devices so you can make it work like a keyboard by doing this it usually means that the game can no longer access the game pad. You can have it installed you just have to have it turned off when playing a game that already has gamepad support.

    Oh, I do. I only turn it on when I plan to play a game that does not support controller.

    Thanks.

    PS: Much love to Feral for helping spread(bringing more to) the Mac Gaming goodness.

    Thank you for the continual pad support on those games.


    I do have a question, if using GamePad Companion for unsupported games, would that at all affect the Feral games that already have it? I just have to make sure GamePad Companion is turned off, right?

    I have one Feral game that has pad support and a bunch that don't and I don't want to screw up that one game.
