I want to hook up 2 wired Xbox360 controllers to my Mac and play games in MacMame. Is that too much to ask? Oh goodness yes.

Yesterday MacMame worked fine with just one controller. I could assign keys and it wouldn't go nutzoid. But I added a second wired controller today, and MacMame can no longer make heads or tails of anything. I try to assign keys and I keep getting an Axis as part of my controls, see:


All I want is J1 Button #12, not all of the other nonsense! This all occurs with a single button press.

There is no way to assign a key without an axis getting in there, thus rendering the controls unusable. I've tried unplugging and replugging the controller. All I want to do is assign 4 digital direction keys, 4 button keys and an insert coin and start key for each controller. I don't want any analog functions. What can I kick to make this work? Why did it work yesterday? If I unplug the second controller, delete all of the config files and try again with just the one controller, it still does the same thing. And no, I am not pressing any analog buttons and they are centered when the controller is plugged in. What can I kick to make it work?

It doesn't seem to matter if I have an Xbox360 controller Preference Pane or not.

Alright I think I figured it out. I restarted the computer with both controllers plugged in to the USB on the front of the machine. Then I started up MacMame and launched a game. I pressed TAB to set the controls, but I still got the same type of thing with the axis. So I moved both analog pads around in a few circles while still in the menu. I tried to set the buttons again and it worked just fine. So I guess moving the analog pads around while in the menu before you select your buttons is the key.

Thanks everybody for your exhaustive help!
