    PS4 controller - OSX

    I seem to only only get the analog sticks (nudge and plunger) to work and the triangle (menu)
    but nothing else

    The controller had to be plugged in vis USB too.
    w/ bluetooth, pinball arcade wouldn't launch

    any assistance to get this working?

    I found the touch pad changes views

    Is there anyway I can get L2/R2 to do flippers? It looks like PS3 controllers work

    Hello, Farsight ~ any insight?
    Surely you have ps4 controller and a mac handy.
    maybe a slight tweak for the unreleased osx/steam 6.10?

    Ok, finally figured out the flippers activates by pressing on the analog sticks
    Which is really awkward doing with your thumbs

    ***Farsight, it would really be nice if you could tweak it to "and/or" L2/R2 triggers too***

    We (the OSX) maybe the ignored minority platform
    I know I'm just falling upon deaf ears, so why do I even bother typing
    But in comparisons to the love you get from (oh say) console platform rioters
    We're probably the nicest platform - and yet we just get ignored

    I did try several controller remapping apps, no dice
    the OSX app version keys are fixed within, so that can't be changed either.

    The OSX version is probably the least nicest version, I think the NES version is nicer *joke*
    No, I was referencing when I go to their facebook page - the console people are just so brutal, I have no idea how Farsight can maintain any self esteem
    While we OSX users just nicely complain - none of us have a cow over another Gottlieb table.

    P.S. thanks for responding

    We've been working on the UI and I passed it along that we need to look into controller support. I pushed the issue further that the control settings that steam has should be made available on the OSX version as well. I'll post an update when we know more next week when we find out more.

    1. He was referring to the personality of the users.
    2. It is not a trivial fix when there is no keymapping for the Mac version of TPA.
    3. The Mac version is—by far—the poorest supported of the platforms. It gets all of the tables that the iOS version gets, but they are straight ports from iOS (poor graphics, no PC-friendly options, the old UI, blatant bugs remain after many new revisions are released, and on and on...)
    Oops! Too much English.

    Were close to having it finished. Once the controller support and button mapping is working, we should be ready to release.

    In addition to controller support and Paragon, I also had updates to 24 tables!

    Is it safe to assume that the Mac App Store version has been submitted, and Apple is just dragging their collective feet?

    Vastly improved game in so many ways! (where to even begin? @FlippyFloppy Thank You!)
    Not sure if there is a mac release notes on what was done, would be cool to see
    The GUI is the same old, but that never bothered me much.

    Controller support and key/button changes is a big plus
    Selecting a new button is buggy (incorrectly displaying wrong button)
    But I got what I really needed to work to work, but some others I couldn't

    Not sure if it's out for the App Store version. It shows an update, but keep getting error message with the App Store app
