I have played Minecraft on the xbox 360 and on the computer . To be honest the computer version is a lot better but the xbox edition is WAY easier to play the Xbox 360 version.

So here is the solution.

Look at my other Instructable called, How to connect Xbox 360 controller to mac. Do that and then come back to this intractable.

HERE is the other instructable link.

Step 1: Download Controllermate

This is what you have to change:

1. Attack/Destroy = Bracket ( ] )

2. Build = Bracket ( [ )

3. Sneak = Left Menu (alt/option)

4. List players = Equals (=)

Step 6: Done

I am using a new Macbook Pro. The XBox 360 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.

So I just pulled up the Keyboard Viewer to see if the controller buttons register as keypresses, and they do not.

After this failed, I found an article on Tweaking4All and based on its recommendations, I tried Enjoy, Enjoy 2, Enjoyable, and finally Joystick Mapper. 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

Did you change the controls on the minecraft settings? That might be the problem. Also you need to make sure the controller mate is activated. Also did you look at the other instructable?
