Recently i downloaded WOTB on my iMac but playing on keyboard i miss the handling possibilities as on iPad. Does WOTB on OSX support any gaming sticks or -pads? If so, i'm curious to learn what your experiences are using a joystick or gamepad, and which are rated highest...

I have ordered a 5 euros wifi adaptor in Aliexpress to connect my xbox 360 pad. I have read that works with many games in Mac but want to try it.

I purchased the apadtor, programmed the Xbox controller with one of the available apps and the question is the aiming is horrible. I can't manage to shoot a barn as it seems the autoaim does not work. Anyone solved this?

Hi Guys, not sure I am in the right place... hopefully! Can anyone tell me if I can use joystick instead of keys on the keyboard and mouse for the turret control? I have some problem with my left hand and it is a bit difficult to constantly press on the key to move forward etc. I am ok with having other shortcuts on the keyboard, it's just this continuous pressing while you move is killing my hand... Thanks in advance!

I’ve only tried it with iOS, there’s a thread in the gameplay section about it and one about PC...

for MacOS (nee OSX) I found these articles, ps4 sounds possible but bear in mind blitz doesn’t officially support controllers and it probably won’t work, you might be able to use the same as the PC fella he has a 3rd party controller...

Thank a lot for the answer. I read a couple of dozens posts about controllers and joysticks, but non answered my question... I like to use mouse for aiming and don't want to change it. I only want to swap keyboard keys (forward, left, right, back) to a joystick. I guess it is not possible?

I don’t know it that is possible on Mac but might be worth asking DaDerpinator with a PM what setup he uses as he uses keyboard+mouse+joystick on PC, as if that works that might give some clues on if it is possible on Mac...

I think he uses steam, and that is available for MacOS so may work...
If you get it working let us know here please.

GL!
