TWD Season 2 Mac OSX 360 Gamepad right stick not detecting

posted by CerebralRogue on - last edited - Viewed by 6.8K users

So far Walking Dead 1 and TWAU detects my Xbox 360 gamepad fine but TWD Season 2 seems to not detect the right analog stick. Left stick works fine, buttons work fine but the only way to move the cursor seems to be to resort to using the trackpad / mouse. Any suggestions? Running OSX Mavericks.

  • I have the same issue. Using Mac OS X Mavericks with Xbox 360 controller. The Walking Dead Season One and The Wold Among Us are working.

    In TWD Season Two I only can use one analog stick, sometimes only the left one, sometimes only the right one. Please help...

  • I'm also having the same problem. Other games have worked fine except this one

  • I received an answer: "Unfortunately we do not officially support controllers on Mac for any of our games. You may be able to find a third party application to fully support your controller. We apologize for the inconvenience."

    So this is basicly what I already do. I'm using the Gamepad Companion from the Mac App Store for Telltales older games (e.g. Back to the Future, Sam & Max). To be able to use the Xbox gamepad for Season Two I assigned the mouse cursor to the right analog stick. That's it.

  • I just bought the game thinking that it had the usual kind of support that Telltale games have for gamepads only to be surprised when it does not once I got into the game. I've had four games so far from Telltale, BTTF, Wolf Among us, Walking Dead Season 1 and now this. This is the first time that I've had controller issues with a Telltale game so I'm surprised to hear that they never supported controllers in any of their games on Mac.

    The wording "not officially supported" to me sounds like if it works it works but if not you are on your own. Which is a pretty lame stance to have in my opinion.

    This may keep me from wanting to play the game as I've become accustomed to using my wireless 360 pad with Telltale games.

    Also I refuse to use keyboard emulation for games. To me that's not a solution. I want to see the controller appropriate button prompts in particular with this game. In other games there are other features you don't get using keyboard emulation (rumble, analog movement for example) but that doesn't apply to this game.

    Playing a game with keyboard emulation on a gamepad and seeing keyboard prompts on screen does not count as full support in my opinion.

    There always seems to be one technical problem or another with Telltale games for me more often than not. Previously it had more to do with crash bugs and little glitches here and there due to OS upgrades or not being able to download new episodes in The Walking Dead Season 1 and now this. They seem to be pretty good at narrative but not at the technical side of things so much in my view.

  • I too am having a similar issue and I don't buy that it's not "officially supported" It should be an easy fix but please resolve it tell tale! third parties have always been weird with games like these. Loved the game, but would prefer to play it on a gamepad.

  • Well, it still works perfectly in Wolf Among Us but not Walking Dead Season 2 last I checked. When I tried to play episode 2 of The Walking Dead Season 2.

  • Hi guys, its not a game controller issue, its a game issue. The game is recognising the controller, but the mouse is not disabling, it did in TWD but isn't in TWD 2. I don't know why but I have pics to confirm this is, at least my, issue. The mouse need to disable once a game controller is enabled. Thats not a "not supported" issue, thats a "game isn't working properly" issue.

  • I had a quick look at the joystick SDL file in package contents to ascertain if they are the same, I can't see differences just yet, but its a place to start. Or maybe the SDL for the mouse. Either way, this should be an easy enough fix. Its certainly just an issue of the mouse hanging around when it shouldn't once the game controller is enabled for me anyway.

      Thank you for the extra information, unfortunately at this time we do not support the use of wireless Microsoft Xbox 360 Controllers with the game. I apologize for any inconvenience that this causes.

  • That is disappointing Mike considering that you guys don't even appear to be interested in investigating this to ascertain, what should be, an easy fix. Its also shortsighted in the fact, that we have supported Telltale, your games have worked with this controller in the past and is our preferred way of playing. It is a game issue, not a controller issue. Please reconsider Telltales position and at least investigate what should be a quick fix for the next episode release. Thanks.

  • So the Wireless control isn't supported, what about the wired xbox controller?
    Or are you just going to wash your hands saying that you do not support any control?

      Wired Microsoft Xbox 360 Controllers are the only officially supported gamepad at this time.

      • I use a wired 360 controller, but the right stick doesn't work, or at least as of the last time I checked without joystick mapper, in any case, I would like to see it fixed in season 3, however I appreciate everything you all do, and love playing your games, keep up the amazing work

          Can you please clarify if you have downloaded and installed the Drivers for Xbox 360 Controller for Windows and restarted the game to see if it resolves your issue?

          • I play it on my macbook pro, everything but the right stick works on mac, hence why I have joystick mapper for the right stick, makes things a little weird in the more intense moments when it jumps between keyboard/mouse symbols to controller symbols

              I apologize for the inconvenience. Unfortunately at this time we do not support any controller for The Walking Dead: Season Two for Mac. There may be a third party program that will allow you to use the controller with the game, but we do not officially support the process. Again, my apologies for any difficulties this may cause you.

              • All good Mike, like I said I use joystick mapper to be able to use the right stick, it is strange and kinda distracting when the mouse/keyboard and controller symbols change, I honestly truly appreciate all the work each and every one of you at Telltale do, I love your games, and TWD S1 honestly has inspired me to make games, I am currently studying games programming so from me to you and everyone else at Telltale, thank you for everything you guys do
