Macally iShock/iShockII Drivers Updated
11:08 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story
Peripheral maker Macally has updated their drivers for the iShock I and II gamepad controllers to 2.0, adding several new features. The iShock series is designed to bring the console controller look-and-feel to Mac gaming, and is an ideal complement for Virtual Game Station and console-style games such as Bugdom.
The forthcoming iShock II gamepad will feature a special addition rare in the Mac peripheral world -- force feedback or "rumble pack" support. As these drivers support force feedback and the iShock II specifically, this is a good sign we should expect this product on shelves soon. Here is a list of changes presented in this update:
- Support Macally force feedback APIs (iShock II only).
- Improved reliability of the “auto-fire” function.
- Supports 2 players mode. Both iShock and iShock II are interchangeable and can be used simultaneously.
