I would like to know how I can connect my Logitech WingMan RumblePad to my Mac so I can play TF2 with it, using CoD-esque controls (Left Thumb = Move, Right Thumb = Aim). I have tried editing the joystick.cfg file, but that didn't seem to work — am I possibly missing something?

I have tried external applications like USB Overdrive (which works, but it flips the thumbsticks for me), ControllerMate (which doesn't let me control the mouse without registering), and GamePad Companion (which also requires registration). I would like to find a free alternative, if possible; any suggestions?

I would expect joystick.cfg to have no effect given that “Gamepads, joysticks, and 360 controllers are currently not supported on Mac versions of Valve games.” (I was just researching this yesterday.) I look forward to seeing answers to this question. – Kevin Reid May 24 '12 at 11:29
@KevinReid I did find a solution with ControllerMate, but It doesn't allow me to map all of the buttons (for free), so I am still awaiting answers. – Richard J. Ross III May 24 '12 at 15:34

One issue: I don't see a way to bind to the mouse. I'll still check it out later today, though. – Richard J. Ross III Nov 30 '12 at 12:53
