Help a moron get his controller working

Post14 Feb 2017, 02:29

I'm pretty much illiterate when it comes to coding/anything more advanced than just using a computer so I don't even know where to start here. I've read that OpenMW supports Xbox controllers but I'm having no luck getting mine to work on my Mac.

I haven't tried very many things since I just don't know what to do. I've downloaded a driver for the controller (360Controller). When plugged in, all of the test buttons work. What do I need to do from there to actually get it to work in OpenMW?

Thanks for any help you all can offer. So far, I'm loving being able to play an old favorite once again.

In my limited experience with OpenMW on Linux and Windows, it just works. Not sure what you need to to on Mac specifically.

As far as I know, controller support on OS X has been broken by some recent change in SDL, but corristo made a new build that's supposed to fix this. Could you test? Link: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3976&p=45425#p45425

I downloaded the link and opened the new version of OpenMW. Still nothing.

I don't have any issues with mine and OpenMW 0.41. I also use 360Controller, just updated to the last version from here https://github.com/360Controller/360Controller/releases.
I tried plugin and unplugin the controller while ingame and it always works fine.
Have you tried going into the controls configuration in the game and attempted to remap the controller options?


EDIT:
PS: I use it with OpenEmu also. By chance, can you test it with it ?
My opinions are my own. I am just a thankful user of OpenMW with no affiliation with the dev team.
