PS360+ and Mac?


#1

When it says PC compatible does that mean mac as well?.. I was wanting to see if I could get my PS360+ stick working with mame but it does nothing when I plug it in.


#2

Mac Support is odd, some PCBs work without issue and other, well they need either to force a mode or special drivers.

I got Toodles PCBs to work on Macs before same with the Cerberus. I didn’t get a chance with the PS360+.
Try to see if you can force PS3/PC mode on your PS360+


#3

I believe it works on Mac if you set it to 360 mode and install the 360 controller driver for mac.


#4

Awesome! How do you the PS360+ to 360 mode? Once you install the 360 controller driver for the Mac, can you button map?


#5

Hold 2p (strong in street fighter terminology) while plugging it in to force 360 mode.

Interesting. I’m not entirely sure why, but I didn’t have to do anything special at all when I got mine working in OS X 10.9+. I plugged it in, opened up MAMEOSX and it was there. If I did do something, I don’t remember it.

That said, I don’t have anything in my System Preferences related to it and the PCB is completely enclosed in steel so I can’t tell you what the lights are doing when I plug it in.

I think it be easier to get the board to work in PS3 mode, as it is a HID class device which Macs do support better than Windows.
360 driver on a Mac is temperamental last I check.

Since I have my Air on me right now, I can tell you that I do not force any mode, I have not installed any drivers. It’s been plug and play for me.

How do you button map?
