    Not sure if anyone else can confirm this, I have been using steam's game platform on my Mac, tattiebogle's Xbox controller drivers and GamePad Companion from the App store stopped working in the DP4 release. The console thrown a IO usb error.

    I am dual booting mavericks and yosemite on different drives on the same machine.
    They still work in mavericks. but are dead in DP4.. anyone have this problem?

    revert back to version 0.11 and it will work again on Yosemite.

    I installed 0.11 and it's still not working. I just installed over the top. Should I remove it totally first? How would I do that?

    I deleted prefpane (go in settings.app and right click the prefpane). Downloaded 1.11 from Tattiebogle site, installed, said there was a more recent version, installed anyway. Opened preferences, didn't show up, installed again and it works just fine now.

    Thank you! Downloaded and did a straight install overtop of v0.12. It's working again for me now! I thought of doing it, but felt too lazy to risk trying to go back through several possible versions.

    Note: It warned me about overwriting the driver with an older version. Just accepted and continued and that did the trick.

    Note 2: I'm running Beta 5.

    Don't count on it, look at the release dates for all the versions, it almost never gets updated.

    How to fix

    Install the 0.13.1 Driver from here (GitHub): https://github.com/d235j/360Controller/releases

    Open terminal and type the following: sudo nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1"

    What this does, is it disables the requirement for having all kext files signed (and thus approved) via Apple.

    Please watch the GitHub page referenced above as from the looks of it, they just got approval to sign their drivers so we should be seeing a new install soon.

    Thanks to all those who have been working on this project. I haven't, but I appreciate everyone's effort.

    I've done everything listed in this thread but still can't get my Afterglow XBOX controller to function. It functioned perfectly in Mavericks.

    The instructions I used to follow were these, the download links were for a script automator that added a custom gamepad settings into the system. Even though I can still do that and it seems to work, the gamepad still isn't recognized:

    1. If you have installed any version of TattiBogle and didn't work download UnTattie.

    2. Open Terminal and type: sudo sh and press enter, then insert your password - it will be invisible - and press enter.

    3. Type again: sudo sh and be sure there is a space after sh.

    4. Drag and drop UnTattie file in Terminal and press enter.

    5. Download TattieBogle 0.08 and install it. It probably will say that it failed the installation but it will be installed.

    6. Download this Controller List Installer.

    7. Download this Controller List.

    8. Go in About This Mac on the menu, click more info and then system report. Connect your controller if you haven't done that yet and check under hardware, and the USB. For me under USB High-speed bus, then Hub I had Afterglow gamepad. If you use an original controller you might see it as vendor specific device. Click on it and in the box below you will see a Product and Vendor ID. Write those down.

    9. Open the Controller List file with a text editor and you look for <key>Controller</key> or look for other key tag that contains your device name, is irrelevant, but I edited under <key>PDPAfterglow</key> just because I have the Afterglow controller.

    10. You will see this few line below it:

    11. Insert in between those <integer></integer> tags those number you wrote down earlier instead of those that are in the file. You might want to check the second 'Thanks to' link at the bottom if this is getting confusing.

    12. Once you have done save the changes and drag and drop the file over the automator controller list installer.

    13. Go in system preferences and go mess with your XBOX Controller while you'll joy with glee!


    Is there any way to get the Afterglow to work again?

    Still not working


    It is not working for me as well. I have tried all the methods above with no luck - installing older versions etc.

    It works fine on Mavericks, but not on Yosemite PB and strangely also not working on Snow Leopard.

    I have a Logitech F310 set to Xinput mode and the driver shows no devices and the green light is off. However when I go to: About this Mac> System Report
    It shows the Logitech device under USB devices.

    Any help appreciated. Many thanks.

    It is strange that it is working for some people but not others. No matter what version I install it makes no difference. No device Found. I have tried all the methods above with no luck. I have Yosemite PB2. It was working fine on Mavericks.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Strangely I got this working after multiple tries. I did a clean install of Yosemite and that didn't work. I then tried installing every version of Tattieboggle and following all the steps in this thread and that still didn't work. After trying multiple installs and reinstalls over and over again it has now randomly started working. I don't have much confidence that it won't break again or not work at all when Yosemite is finally released.

    I still haven't managed to get my Afterglow working again, but given that it's a third party controller, I'll probably have to rely on some youtube video again like I did with Mavericks. A shame Microsoft so half-assedly supports its controllers, even in the Windows environment. I had to go through hoops on Windows 7 to get it recognized, and it's an officially licensed product!

    There is a driver available for the Mac which works with Yosemite and the Xbox One controller. Download it from this link: http://stonelightpictures.com

    It's in beta but works really well.
