I have a Macally iShock II and it doesn't work under OS X. Does anyone know of drivers for this gamepad?

Thanks,

I don't see any drivers for the game controller, but they do have OS X native mouse drivers (at last).

Contact MacAlly and see if they have any beta drivers you can try.

...Otherwise try USB Overdrive X, or Gamepad Companion - 2 very good games device drivers for OSX.

As always, you can find them on www.versiontracker.com

:D

Yep USB Overdrive is the best bet right now. Hopefully 10.2 brings better support for game controllers.

I currently use USB overdrive, however, it does not currently show my controller. Does anyone else have this problem?

I tried the gamepad companion and now it works. Thanks man. The only thing that's wrong with it is that it doesn't have force feedback. I'll have to wait for Macally to update their drivers to 10. Oh well, at least it works.

Thanks,

Does anyone know offhand if USB Overdrive supports a USB Gravis GamePad Pro?

Use Gamepad Companion. It works really well, and it's easy to use.
