GamePad Companion 2.0 Released
10:41 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

Carvware have released version 2.0 of GamePad Companion, their essential game controller configuration utility for Mac OS X.

GamePad Companion works with all HID-compatible game controllers (joysticks and gamepads) in both native and classic applications running in Mac OS X 10.1 or higher.

Here's what's new in version 2.0:

GamePad Companion is now a preference panel that is controlled using the OS X System Preferences application. You no longer have to launch GamePad Companion every time you want to use your gaming device. Just set it up once in the GamePad Companion preference panel, then turn it on, and from that point on anytime you plug in your gaming device it will just start working. Other new features since version 1.2 include help tips to improve ease of use, and a "test" feature that allows you to test your settings before turning them on for good. There are also a number of bug fixes in this release to address crashes that some users were experiencing.
A demo of version 2.0 is available from the Carvware web site.
