Joystick Mapper - Use Gamepads in any Mac App or Game


JOYSTICK MAPPER

Joystick Mapper is an application for Mac OS X that lets you map keyboard keys, mouse axes, mouse buttons and mouse wheel to any joystick or gamepad button/axis/hat.

In other words: This App will let you play any game or use any app with any joystick or gamepad, even the ones that are not compatible with joysticks.

Really great app! I wanted to see if it would work with my SNES USB controller, and sure enough, it works great! Bastion on my Mac is so much more fun to play with an SNES controller

Playing Now: Lara Croft Go, Boxy Kingdom, The Shadow Sun
Waiting For: Lumines

Some users noticed a problem with mouse when playing Minecraft in a Window.
If you have this problem, please play in fullscreen mode until I fix this bug.
I am investigating this issue.


Anyway, all the other things seems to be working perfectly well, I just need to make some tweaks that some users requested and I think are doable.

I also would like to thank everybody who bought my app

I am aware of this problem and I am looking for a workaround.
For now, please play in Fullscreen mode
(inside the game, F11 , or Fn+F11)
(this shortcut may conflict with some default shortcuts (see keyboard system preferences)
