Fly! II Recognizes Joystick in OS X
1:08 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story
Many persons gaming under Mac OS X currently share a lament that support for gamepads and joysticks has yet to be fully implemented. Programs like CarvWare's GamePad Companion have made life easier, but for the most part there's still not a lot of support.
Interestingly enough, a reader recently wrote in to Accelerate Your Mac after finding out that his copy of MacSoft's Fly! II included joystick support:
I picked up Fly! II recently, after seeing they had a beta version for OS X. The program works great, but I immediately wanted to get a joystick. After looking around a bit at the local Best Buy, I decided to drop $50 on a Microsoft Sidewinder Precision 2 (USB version, obviously!). Well, imagine my surprise when I plugged it in to OS X and Fly! saw it immediately, even identified it correctly and everything. It works great, and I would recommend it to everyone.Perhaps other users of Fly! II have discovered that the program includes support for other controllers as well. Feel free to post in IMG's forums about any related discoveries.
