your Xbox 360 controller is wired or wireless ? Microsoft will soon release a USB peripheral (for windows) which receives the signals from the wireless controller(s). presumably this will be similarly easy to port to mac.

Then Download Xbox HID Driver for Mac OS X

This software enables the Xbox USB gamepad, DVD remote, and other Xbox devices on Mac OS X. It installs a HID (Human Interface Device) kernel extension and works at a low-level so any game that supports joysticks can use it. Games that do not support joysticks can use Xbox devices through additional software such as GamePad Companion.

You can use the Xbox HID Driver as long as you want, it is now freeware and totally unlimited. The full source code is accessible via CVS.

The source code to the kernel extension component is included, and is subject to the Apple Public Source License (APSL). The driver can be extended to support additional Xbox devices, including wheels, IR receivers, headsets, and memory units. The full source code for other components is licensed under the GPL.

It is now possible to use the Xbox controller in Halo! Halo version 1.5 supports gamepads!

I have created an Application Enhancer module (aka haxie) that taps into Halo Mac Edition to provide limited joystick support, I call it "Game Pad Hack". Update: this is no longer needed in version 1.5 of Halo. I probably will not be continuing development of this haxie but the full source code is available for anyone who would like to take it further. Click here to download Game Pad Hack (requires the Xbox HID Driver).

Download

Before you download, please note: this driver requires Mac OS X 10.2.6 or later, which was recently released, so make sure to upgrade. The download contains a detailed ReadMe with information about known bugs and limitations, which you should consult first before emailing me.


Download the latest version here.

Re: Xbox 360 Controller Mac Problems

Here is also an another version Xbox 360 Controller driver - 0.07

Product Description:
This driver adds support to Mac OS X for the official Microsoft Xbox 360 wired controller. Along with all the buttons, both analog sticks, the analog triggers and the D-pad, it implements Force Feedback support using the rumble motors as well.

As the driver is open source, it is also possible to see an example of how to communicate with the driver directly, to control the LEDs as well as bypass the Force Feedback functionality for direct rumble motor control.

Third party controllers should also be supported, but these must be added manually to the driver's list of supported devices. Currently this includes the official controller and the DOA4 stick controller.

What's new in this version:
  • Fixed issue with use on OSX 10.4
  • Added support for Rock Band controllers
  • Added support for Konami Dance Mat

Operating System Requirements:
This product is designed to run on the following operating systems:
  • Mac OS X 10.5 Intel
  • Mac OS X 10.5 PPC
  • Mac OS X 10.4 Intel
  • Mac OS X 10.4 PPC

Additional Requirements:
  • Mac OS X 10.4 or higher
  • Xbox 360 controller
