AustinSoft has released HappyGear 1.2, an update to their shareware utility which allows pre-InputSprocket titles to be played with devices that require InputSprockets to function (i.e. any USB device which doesn't have a specific extension/driver). Here are details on the update:

AustinSoft has announced an update to HappyGear, their
utility to allow gamers to use newer, InputSprocket compatible gaming
devices, such as USB joysticks and steering wheels, with games not
compatible with InputSprocket. This update brings HappyGear to version 1.2.

"We are really happy to announce that HappyGear can now provide mouse
movement for those games that used joysticks that moved the mouse cursor."
lead developer Glenn Austin said. "There have been a lot more games than we
initially realized that use mouse movement to control the game. Now users
can use joysticks and other analog devices to provide mouse movement and up
to 8 distinct mouse buttons. In addition, we've added some functionality to
improve the experience of some devices that don't provide a full range of
values by scaling what the device provides to what the programs expect, and
we've added a quick way to start playing your games after enabling

HappyGear is shareware, and costs $30 for electronic delivery, or $30 +
shipping for a copy on CD.

Grab the latest version from Macgamefiles.
