This video shows myself playing the Mac OS X version of Call of Duty 4 using a Xbox 360 Joypad. Note that this game does NOT have built-in support for gamepads/joysticks.

To be able to play this game using that controller (and many others, like the Playstation 3 one), I used the "Joystick Mapper" application, which allows you to use joysticks or gamepads in any Mac application or game, even the ones without builti-in support.

You can download it here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/joysti...
And here is its the website: http://joystickmapper.com/

About the app configuration:

It comes with a "FPS Example" (you can find it on "File - Load Examples" menu), which is mostly based on Call of Duty, I just changed the Dpad Up and Dpad Down mappings to "Night Vision" and "Grenade Launcher" which are equivalent to keyboard keys N and 5, respectively.

About the game configuration:

I unbind "Go to Crouch", and bind "Change Stance" to the "C" key,
I also recommend changing the Right Mouse Button mapping from "Toggle Aim down the Sight" to "Aim down the Sight" (I did not do this on this video), so it behaves more like the Xbox 360 version.

Also, set the Mouse sentisitivity to a low value, it feels better in my opinion.


You may need to install a driver if you want to use your xbox 360 controller on mac: http://joystickmapper.com/faq/#xbox36...

Also, if you have a *wireless* controller like me you will need the "Xbox Wireless Gaming Receiver". The wired works without this.
