I've downloaded xbox 360 controller drivers from a few different sources, pretty sure they're all the same driver. Not important, the issue I'm having is finding the actual configuration and program itself on my mac. I've searched through every file on my computer but cannot find the program that allows me to set up the controller, I.E. map the controls etc.

I have the Dolphin emulator for GC which has a gamepads tab but when I try to map my controls it keeps the same controls which are keyboard commands. I would say F* it and just play with my keyboard but upon loading up the illustrious DBZ Budokai 2 and hitting my return key, the "a" key and a combination of every other control nothing happens. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. In case it doesn't show, I'm a complete newbie to emulating.

Thanks chaps.

The drivers are most likely HID drivers which leave it up to the application to implement controller configuration. Does it show up in the emulator?

Have you tried searching through their forum? https://forums.dolphin-emu.org/

Just searched the forums and I wasn't able to find any Mac specific issues that didn't say the pluggins should automatically be there. So I followed your advice about HID drivers. That is an option in the dolphin gamepad set up but it still wasn't registering the input from the controller. I tried the other options on the drop down menu but same story.

Just a little advice here:

1) If you have a third party x360 controller it may not be supported by the drivers and may need to added to the drivers profile if it isn't in there. I don't have links on that subject handy, sorry.  

2) I'd only advise downloading drivers from their official web site and I could be wrong about this but they are mostly only necessary if you have a wireless x360 gamepad.

3) Download joystick and gamepad tester which should allow you to test if your gamepad is working with your OS at all:  http://alphaomega.so...pad Tester.html

I've used a wireless x360 controller in particular with dolphin (for gamecube and certain wii games that are best played with a controller I use a real wii remote for the rest) just fine here.

Also, yeah.. the official dolphin forums seem to be more Windows PC focused from what I could tell.

I use two wired original X360 controllers and had no problems any game yet. But I don't have the Dolphin emu, also.
as Smoke_Tetsu sys, the site to get the drivers from is this:
http://tattiebogle.n...oller/OsxDriver

but it can be that version v.11 works better than v.12, you have to try.

Quick update from me and that is: I'm retesting Dolphin now and I was able to configure my x360 wireless pad just fine in Dolphin with the drivers from tattiebogle's site. IIRC I'm even using the latest (v.12).

As an aside.. performance in Mario Galaxy is still dreadful. That popsnizzle certainly needs greater than 4Ghz to be full speed... even with all the famous performance optimizations that have been done to Dolphin lately. :bleedingeyes:

One thing wrong with it is it seems that perhaps lens flares are being rendered via a slow path like the old lens flare bug that had been plaguing quite a few native & wrapped Mac games back in the day. Whenever the sun would be in front of the camera.. It'd be hella slow.. but not when facing away so much.

Mostly for me Dolphin is most useful for other games such as Mario Kart Wii and New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
