Happy Gear 2.6 Released
9:35 AM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

Software developer AustinSoft has released an update to their Mac OS 9 application Happy Gear, a utility that allows Input Sprocket-enabled controllers to be used in games/software that do not support Input Sprocket through an easy to use interface. The newest patch fixes a few problems and bugs associated with earlier versions, and has been rebuilt using the latest version of CodeWarrior. Here's a full list of changes from the AustinSoft webpage:

  • Rebuilt using CodeWarrior 8.3.
  • Updated About box.
  • If the JoyManager driver isn't already installed when HappyGear is
  • launched, HappyGear will install the JoyManager driver automatically, if possible.
  • Added emulation type popup to QuickCreate dialog so that it will correctly create either JoyManager or Mouse/Keyboard items.
  • Fixed a problem where configuring an InputSprocket item would actually enable the device.
  • Only enable items in the action types that match the type of input (analog or button).
  • Updated icon.
  • Fixed conflict during build of duplicate SICN resources.
  • Changed to HTML-formatted release notes.
  • You can download the latest version of Happy Gear from the link below. Note that OS 9 and an Input Sprocket-compatible device are required, and the product will not function under OS X. Happy Gear is shareware, and registration is $30.
