There are possible some problems with this game related to a bug that happens on REtina displays, there is a workaround here (last item):http://joystickmapper.com/faq/#gamespecific
About The trick to make the game ignore the controller, in case the built-in controls conflict with it:
- enable the preset with the controller connected
- start the game
- after entering the game, remove and connect the controller
- the game will probably ignore the controller but Joystick Mapper will pick it up normally.
