    Note: I know there's a similar thread below mine about using ps3 controllers for FIFA, but I didn't wanna hijack that thread for my specific problem, so if someone could help me out that would be great!

    I was wondering if anyone that has successfully used their PS3 controller with FIFA 12 could help me out.

    I've tried every possible thing to get this thing working and nothing has worked so far. I've tried redownloading/reinstalling the 7gb fifa file.

    I've copied the commands and edited the buttonData.ini with the commands in this thread:

    I've downloaded the zip file and followed the instructions here:

    I've downloaded multiple ps3 drivers for mac, one of which is this one:

    I even spent $15, bought ControllerMate, and spent about 3 hours configuring my controller, but to no avail.

    My current status: so I have my controller connected to my computer via bluetooth. It seems as if the configuration I made in ControllerMate is in effect when my computer is just on the desktop or internet browser or anything, but once I boot up FIFA, it doesn't work. L2 is start, pressing the right analog stick is A, pressing the left analog stick is's just weird.

    As you can tell...I'm pretty desperate to play some FIFA, so if anyone could help that would be much appreciated.

    And if it makes any difference, my computer is running OSX 10.7.2.

    Try this

    Hello friend. I am playing Fifa 12 on 10.6.8 with my PS3 controller. The only thing I had to do is place a couple of files and make some changes in the Game dir. Here is the files.

    Everything works fine, sometimes the menus gets scrolling but then I just press some buttons and it stops but it works good while playing

    Hope it helps.

    Menu controls keep pressing down

    Hi, i downloaded the file and did exactly as you asked, and the buttons work perfectly in the whole game - except the main menu, for some reason whenever the main menu comes up - the button down feels like its being pressed because the the highlighted box keeps moving down forever until i start a match etc, please reply as to what to do. Thank you very much.
