USB Overdrive Beta 5 Released
12:00 PM | Vern Xiong | Comment on this story
USB Overdrive author Alessandro Levi Montalcini has announced that beta 5 of USB Overdrive X for USB devices is now available for download.
USB Overdrive X is a Mac OS X driver that handles all USB mouse and trackball devices from any manufacturer (with support coming soon for joysticks and gamepads) and lets you configure them either globally or on an application-specific basis. It reads all kinds of wheels, buttons, switches and controls and supports scrolling, keyboard emulation, launching and all the usual stuff like clicking, control-clicking and so forth. USB Overdrive can easily handle several USB devices at once.
Montalcini posted on his site:
The Mac OS X version is fully functional with mouse and trackball devices, but still lacks support for joysticks and gamepads. I am working on gaming devices to make them work properly in Mac OS X 10.2. This is the only reason why I'm calling it a beta, since the mouse part is complete and stable as far as I can tell.USB Overdrive will also have all the features of the Mac OS X version when used in Mac OS 9 or in Classic. It will be offered as shareware upon completion and can be downloaded at their website.
