A downloadable Controller Type for the MacBook Pro i7 (2011) was added today.

This removes a number of controls that don't actually exist on the device and adds compatibility with the fn key.

Clicking the download link for this one kicks me to the front page.

Fixed. Thanks for pointing that out.

So I have a 2011 i7 MBP, and I downloaded this and added them to Controller types, but no matter what I do I can't get them to show up in the Controllers palette

Importing a Controller Type should update information that ControllerMate has already collected about your device, it won't add a new controller to the list.

According to my notes, importing this Controller Type will hide several controls that don't really exist, and will add an item for the "fn" keyboard button.

Interesting... without anything attached, CM shows two entries:

Apple Internal Keyboard / Trackpad (Keyboard)
Macbook Pro i7 (Keyboard)

is this expected?

Since two different names are being used for different portions of the keyboard, I'm guessing that your MacBook Pro is a newer version than the one that was previously tested.

Does a "fn" key appear in the list of controls when the "MacBook Pro i7" device is selected?

Under Controller Types, yes.

But not in the Controllers Palette, i.e: I can't add a block for that key

Can you send me your ~/Library/Application Support/ControllerMate/Known Devices.plist file?

I'll take a look to see if your internal keyboard differs from the one that the cmate file was based on.

Hi Ken.

I have a 2011 MBP 17" i7, but cannot get the "fn" key building block to show up in the palette. I have imported the 2011 MacBook Pro i7 cmate file, I can see a MacBook Pro i7 (keyboard) entry under Controller Information, and I can see the entry for the fn key at the bottom of the controls list with the visible and scroll options checked, but no block shows in the palette.

Is there a simple way that I can identify some HID info for you or would you just like my Known Devices.plist file?

Thanks,
Brock Brandenberg

If you could send the Known Devices.plist file, that will be enough. I can make a guess at how to add compatibility with the fn key if Apple has remained consistent.
