GamePad Companion For OS X
9:42 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

If you're an OS X user and have been frustrated by not being able to use your favorite gamepad under the new operating system, then GamePad Companion for OS X might just be the thing for you. This little utility gem allows you to use HID compatible devices (a fancy word for gamepads, joysticks) with Mac OS X 10.1.

According to the author, all devices recognized by the Mac OS X HID mechanism should work with GamePad Companion. A demo is available to see if your device works properly with the utility. One word of caution, however; you should not use GamePad Companion with games that have built in support for HID devices.

GamePad Companion allows you to use up to 5 HID devices and works with any application that runs on Mac OS X version 10.1, either natively or in Classic mode.

GamePad Companion is shareware and costs $15 to register a single user license. Registration is available via the CarvWare web site.
