HappyGear Updated to 1.3
6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Shareware maker AustinSoft yesterday updated its Mac OS 9 utility HappyGear to version 1.3. HappyGear allows the use of InputSprocket-compatible devices with games and other programs that were created without InputSprocket support.

Specifically, HappyGear allows users to combine the functionality of one or more InputSprocket devices into a single device that can be used with almost any game, whether it uses the keyboard or the older JoyManager API.

The latest update adds several new features and fixes:

  • Updated to launch a specific copy of an application rather than use the Finder to launch by creator code. This allows for specific patch versions of the same application.
  • Added the ability to handle devices where the device center isn't exactly between the low and high values.
  • Fixed crash when switching from Key Sequence.
More information on this utility and a download link are available at AustinSoft's web site. The download itself weighs in at 620 KB.
