Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

OS X XBOX One Controller Malfunction

FIrst off, let me say that Unreal is becoming my favorite gaming engine, all else pale in comparison...

However, when I use my XBONE controller with the OS X IDE, without even touching the analog joystick, the axis in the viewport start going ape sh*t. It works perfectly in Windows 10, and I can easily maneuver around the level, and I kind of prefer it vs mouse/keyboard combo. Issue only happens on my MacBook Pro Retina 15".

In OS X, if I am in perspective view, the analog joystick moves by itself without touching the controller. I can then override the movement, but as soon as I let go it doesn't seem to reset. I am using a tethered XBOX One controller with TattieBogle Xbox 360 Driver for OS X.

Additional info, the other viewports work, it's just perspective that gets this undesired behavior. Also when I compile to standalone window, or preview in the current viewport, everything works as should. It's just when i'm editing in perspective that seems to be the culprit. It's unfortunate because if this would be fixed, then I would loyally use my controller in my Mac IDE. It'd help productivity!

Hi ApolloSoftware,

What software are you using for the XBOne controller on your Mac OS? Have you tried any other controllers to see if they get the same error when used? I attempted to reproduce this on a PC, however I was not able to do so.

Yeah PC it works perfectly, just on Mac it's messing up! It's a third party XBOX Driver for OS X. Here is the link: https://github.com/360Controller/360Controller/

For MAC and XBOX it's only third party drivers, M$oft doesn't officially support it, nor I doubt will they ever.

Have you tried unplugging and replugging in the controller? This sounds like a similar known issue, and this is the current workaround for the error in question.

Still a bug in 4.12.3. Tried all suggested, with all due respect, it was the first things i've tried. I've verified 360 and XBONE controllers have the same exact issue in OS X.

Does the controller work with other software? Is it an error with the third party software currently in use?
