Any suggestions for a game contoller for an intel Mac pro? I've had no luck with tatieboggle or with the Logitech f710 wireless. Running latest system. Thanks!

    What I specifically want is to be able to play the new pinball arcade with a controller, not my keyboard.

    There's a simple, but not obvious, trick to making the F710 work with the Mac.  See the setup section on this page of macgamepads.com for details.

    THANK YOU! Finally! Yay! You rule! So simple yet infuriatingly missing information when you purchase the **** thing! Pinball heaven at last!

    I'm glad I could help... it's incredibly frustrating when you can't get one of these things to work!  I'll have to add pinball to my list.  I would have never thought to try it out with a controller if you hadn't mentioned it. 

     

    Thanks!

    For three years I have been trying to get a reliable connection with the F710 for each OSX update. The macgamepads.com and tattiebogle.net solutions do not actually work for extended gaming experiances. In short OSX is lacking REAL controller support. And as long as I have had my Mac Pro it has always been that way.

     

    There is a reason why people don't play games on Mac. I have a SSD drive dedicated entirely to Windows 8 Bootcamp because playing even the most simplistic game on a Mac is a god **** nightmare. You want the F710 to work? Get a PC or run Bootcamp - DON'T PLAY GAMES IN OSX.
