I have an older MBP, running Torchlight 2 via steam, and the X button keeps dimming the screen... and it's also not doing what it's supposed to-- it's supposed to be shift+Click... it works fine with my pc... so it's mapped right in steam... but there's some kind of setting in the Mac OS thats crossing wires with the controller...

Try the MacOS forum (Or gaming), might be better place to ask a question like this. Otherwise check whatever keys it's mapping it to aren't also used for dimming the screen.

ok thanks! How would i even check if my keys are being used to change brightness? It appears it's related to the shift button, since I mapped the shift button separately and all by itself it dims the screen... except it doesn't do that on the keyboard, just with the controller...

Changed "stand in place" from shift to something else on the games Key bindings... it appears to have fixed it. The whatever controller but I map the shift key to, still dims the screen, so I've lost the ability to "shift+click" to quick transfer items... but it's not so bad as it was with primary attack being messed up.
