Play minecraft on mac with xbox controller

I downloaded and installed ControllerMate with no issue and was able to register it just fine as well. Restarted my computer bc installer suggested I do that. After reboot, I started up ControllerMate, checked to make sure my screen had all the same things as your screenshots had then started up Minecraft.

I went in and changed out the keybindings in Minecraft to the adjusted ones you had written. Nothing, Minecraft was not picking up anything. Rebooted a few times just to check and still no control with my xbox one wired with Minecraft. Next, I realised I could check the programming in ControllerMate to see if the keys were registering through that programming. I realised that the controller wasn't communicating with that software. Went back into my controller driver listed in the link earlier in this post to turn on the setting "Pretend to be an Xbox controller".

Excited I go back to start up minecraft and a big fat nothing! For the life of me I cannot figure out why Minecraft is not picking up on the controller!!! If by some awesome luck of the universe you still get notifications or check out the comments to your tutorial, I could really use some help trying to figure out what's going on.

I was in the same boat, make sure that in the controller mate program that everything is enabled - that means all of the checkmarks as well as the little gear icons to the right of the check marks. Once I did this along with the steps that you outlined this worked without issue. I am using a new Macbook Pro. The XBox Controllers section of System preferences shows the controller is connected and displays whichever button I'm pressing, so I know the controller is communicating with the computer.

I downloaded and imported your ControllerMate file and enabled all the checkboxes like you said. I changed the control keys within Minecraft Options as you said. The controller does not communicate with Minecraft. Reply 2 years ago. So I just pulled up the Keyboard Viewer to see if the controller buttons register as keypresses, and they do not.

The first three had major problems. Joystick Mapper works well, although the mouse movement is slightly abrupt. The article listed a few others as well, which I did not try, because I did not need to. But if Joystick Mapper does not work for someone, they have options.

For some reason the controls aren't responsive? I know the controller works because I can play other games with it on my Mac, but this just isn't working for me. Reply 3 years ago. Did you change the controls on the minecraft settings?
