    I have an iMac 27" 2011 model with 10.9.3 and an official Microsoft Xbox USB wired controller. I installed the latest Tattiebogle v0.12 driver and the controller is recognised and working through that. I installed Feral's Mac version of Tomb Raider Anniversary and selected the controller within the options. It partly works. The figure (Lara) tends to enter the semi-crouched position and walk round in circles non-stop. Pressing jump sometimes makes it/her stand still. Another thing it does is, after guiding the figure, it enters that same semi-crouched stance and heads off to the right-hand side and will not stand still.

    I have tried adjusting all the settings in the Tattiebogle control panel and selected the various options for the axes in the game's controller options, which seems to be about the only relative thing to do. Nothing works.

    Anybody out there have any idea what to do to resolve this dilemma?

    I'd contact Feral support and we can investigate but I have a feeling the game shipped before the Tattie drivers for the 360 so I suspect it might just be the game is not setup to accept input from the 360 pad via tattoos drivers.

    Anyway if you contact the team at Feral support they can do some investigations.

    Thanks, Eddeduck, I just went on the Feral site and found that there is a page there where you can download a kit to collect HID info, which I completed and emailed to Feral support. It says there that they will be able to put together a plist file for the controller which you put in a folder in ~/Library to make it work.

    Here's hopin'!

    Kind regards,
