[macOS] Controller input does not work on macOS Standalone builds



Steps to reproduce:
1) Open the attached project.
2) Build for macOS.
3) Connect a controller (PS4 or Xbox will do).
4) Run the build.
5) Press buttons on the controller.

Expected result: the pressed buttons are displayed.
Actual result: controller input is not registered.

This only happens on standalone builds - controller works fine on the Editor.

Reproduced on:
2018.3.0a6, 2018.2.0b6

    This is actually fixed in Unity 2018.2.3f1.

    Despite this earlier claim of "Fixed in 2018.2", this is not fixed in the just-released 2018.2.2f1. Controllers still do not work in Mac builds.

    Yes, still not fixed in Unity 2018.2.2f1. Will raise another bug report and reference this as incorrectly fixed.

    Im am having the same issue. Glad I found this. I was going nuts trying to debug it. Tried with a wired Xbox controller, a Logitech F310, and Logitech Dual Action. Fine in editor, no input on build. Running mac os 10.13.6, unity 2018.2.1f1

    Seeing the same in 2018.2.1f1 with Logitech F310. Why is this flagged as fixed in 2018.2?

    Same here. I raised this as an issue without seeing this bug. Unity QA team have notified me that the issue and example project I raised will be folded into this bug report. Issue I experienced is identical except I'm using a PS3 controller.
