All transitions involve a certain amount of pain or loss -- you may have experienced this when you switched from your ADB-using Mac to a newer PowerMac or iMac that only supported USB, and found that some of your older games or shareware titles did not survive the ordeal. But now, with HappyGear, you can rejuvinate those old games and make them play nicely with your USB input devices. HappyGear is an Input Sprocket 'emulator' that translates USB IS commands into keyboard or JoyManager (an old joystick protocol) commands. Here are the details of this release:

HappyGear is now available for downloading. HappyGear is a utility to allow
gamers to use newer, InputSprocket compatible gaming devices, such as USB
joysticks and steering wheels, with games not compatible with InputSprocket.
"It is with a lot of pride that we are able to release HappyGear to the rest
of the Macintosh gaming community," said lead developer Glenn Austin. "One
of the benefits of testing game utilities and devices is that you get to
play a lot of games. Now everyone else can enjoy their games too."
HappyGear is now available, and costs $30 for electronic delivery, and is
also available on CD for $30 + shipping.
