Mac Ios Driver For Xbox 360 Wired Controller


The driver provides developers with access to both force feedback and the LEDs of the controllers. Additionally, a preference pane has been provided so that users can configure their controllers and ensure that the driver has been installed properly.




Mac Ios Driver For Xbox 360 Wired Controller



This is an early release of a modern rewrite for this driver. It updates the driver to the modern standard and re-implements wireless controller support. If you find any regression in the driver, make sure to make an issue and specifically mention that you are using this version of the driver.


This is an early release of a modern rewrite for this driver. It should exactly match the functionality of the existing driver. So wireless controllers are still not supported at this time, but your wired controllers should work exactly as intended. If you find any regression in the driver, make sure to make an issue and specifically mention that you are using this version of the driver.

It looks like the hang on boot that some users were experiencing was caused by the Xbox One controller Bluetooth support hooks that had been added to the driver. In order to resolve those issues, all Bluetooth support has been removed from the driver. Simply put, if you are using the controller via Bluetooth, the driver won't do anything for you. Please do not install older versions of the driver in order to get the force feedback over Bluetooth support and then post an issue about your computer hanging on boot.


I have created a USB driver which allows you to use wired XBox 360 Controllers via USB, and wireless XBox 360 Controllers via the Microsoft Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows, on your OSX machine, including support for the Apple Force Feedback library. The driver is licenced under the GPL.Snow LeopardI've released a version which will hopefully install and work fine on 32-bit Snow Leopard. It also contains 64-bit binaries, however I've been unable to test them because Apple have disabled my MacBook from booting into 64-bit mode. I have however been informed that 64-bit and 32-bit builds are both working.ChatPadI have got the Microsoft ChatPad working with my wired controller. The latest release of the driver includes support, and I'll be updating the USB information section of this website shortly. I've not yet checked the wireless receiver for compatibility.Other infoSadly, my PowerMac has died, which as my primary development machine has slowed progress.I have added a version of the driver without support for the Guitar Hero controller, to allow the Guitar Hero for Mac game to work (it attempts to access hardware directly, which doesn't work if a real driver has claimed the device).HelpIf you find the driver does not work for you, please attempt and find out as much as you can about the device, preferably using the Apple "USB Prober" application provided with the developer tools, but the output of System Profiler for the device may be enough. E-mail it back and I'll try and work with you to get it working.Force feedback-enabled gamesGames I've currently tested for force feedback support (only games that support basic rumble will probably function currently, as I've only implemented triangle, square and sine wave-type effects. I also lack any other force feedback device for comparison :) ):Jammin' Racer - seems to work fine


We're assuming that you already own a wired Xbox controller, but if you're needing to buy, a standard controller is about $50 (opens in new tab). You'll need to connect it to your Mac using a microUSB cable (opens in new tab) which, sadly, isn't included. If you buy a third-party wired controller you won't have to worry about this.


First of all, you will need either a wired or wireless Xbox controller. Both work fine, but for all those passionate gamers with a tendency to erupt, a wireless device would be best to save any damage to wires (or opponents). These wireless receivers can be bought for around $20 on Amazon and handle up to 4 Xbox 360 controllers.

I have added a version of the driver without support for the Guitar Hero controller, to allow the Guitar Hero for Mac game to work (it attempts to access hardware directly, which doesn't work if a real driver has claimed the device). It works by automatically tweaking the driver's Info.plist, but a reboot will be required after any changes.


Sadly, the wireless controllers communicate with the XBox 360 using a propreitary RF protocol, and not Bluetooth, so the Bluetooth module built into your Mac won't help you out. Additionally, the Play n Charge cable only charges, and won't allow you to use the wireless controller as a wired one. If you want to buy a Wireless Gaming Receiver from Amazon, use the links below and part of your purchase will be donated to me!


A deadlock issue was present that causes any HID devices (e.g. keyboard and mouse) to freeze if the wired controller has been unplugged, in relation to the ChatPad support code. Someone kindly submitted a patch to temporarily remove the deadlock in 0.11.


I picked up Borderlands 2 for OS X in the recent Steam sale because friends of mine would NOT shut up about the game. So I fired it up only to find out that I needed to use a keyboard (lots of keys) + a mouse (carpal tunnel = no) to play. That sucks. I was hoping that I could use a borrowed Xbox 360 controller to play through, but Aspyr doesn't support that. Grr. So after some research I found a way to use both a wireless Xbox 360 controller as well as a wired third-party Xbox 360 controller. This worked for Borderlands 2 and other games I've tried so far. The cost for this is $5 for the wired controller and $20 for the wireless. Here are the two setups that worked for me.


360Controller.kext has invalid signature; omitting.More info:I used parallels and created a virtual machine. when I plugged in my xbox 360 receiver, it asked me if I wanted to map it to my Parallels virtual machine or my computer (my Mac). I mapped it to parallels. But now I am trying to map it back to my Mac and I have no idea how to because the 360 receiver hardware isn't registering in the driver configuration settings for the 360 wireless receiver..


however, the controller has been registered by my system profile. tldr; my mac recognizes my controller, but the drivers don't, and I think the cause of the problem is because somehow my controller is tied to my parallels virtual machine desktop. Additionally I fear somehow some of my system memory is somehow tied up in parallels and not accessible from my mac desktop. not sure if that's even possible but it appeared my video card RAM was lower than the specs should be in my system profile. but I'm a noob so i could be wrong.


Fortunately, the process used to pair the two devices via Bluetooth is really simple. Here's how:Turn on your Xbox One controller by holding the Xbox button until it lights up.Next, hold the pairing button until the Xbox button flashes.Now, click the Apple icon on your Mac. Then, click System Preferences.Click the Bluetooth option.Click Connect next to your Xbox controller.Now, your Xbox One Controller is connected to your Mac. Although the process is incredibly simple, you can run into some complicated problems.

Although it isn't as simple as the method above, you can still connect your non-Bluetooth controller to most Macs. Xbox One Controllers aren't natively compatible with Mac in way of a USB connection. For this section, we'll need a little help from some third-party software. But don't worry, we tested this software in August of 2021 and it's still working fine.Here's how:Head over to GitHub and install 360Controller.Move through the prompts as they appear to complete the installation process.Now, you need to let 360Controller have access to your Mac. Open System Preferences and click on Security & Privacy.To allow access, click the Lock icon in the lower left, input your Mac password and click Allow.Upon completion, restart your Mac. Then, go back to System Preferences and click on the 360Controller icon. Plug your Xbox controller into your Mac's USB port and you should be good to go.Similar to most games you'll play on an Xbox, 360Controller gives you options to switch controls, invert options, and mo
