AustinSoft Announces HappyGear
11:34 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

AustinSoft today announced that it will be shipping HappyGear in August. HappyGear is a utility that will allow gamers to use newer, InputSprocket compatible gaming devices, such as USB joysticks and steering wheels, with games not compatible with InputSprocket.

"HappyGear provides a JoyManager-compatible device using your InputSprocket gaming gear," lead developer, Glenn Austin, said. "This allows users to take advantage of the new generation of joysticks and steering wheels with games that haven't yet been updated to work with InputSprockets, but do work with keyboards and older gaming devices that are difficult or impossible to find. HappyGear allows gaming device manufacturers to focus on providing great devices and support for InputSprockets rather than on trying to get their devices to work with other games as well."

HappyGear will be available by August, and will cost $30 + shipping. More
details will be available at AustinSoft home page.
