    I connected my own PC game pad to my new mac, it works without any hint!

    But when playing games i realized that the Force Feedback is unavailable. but my pad has that feature! How or, where can i configure the settings for my pad in OS X? I didn't see it anywhere, maybe because i'm a newbie.

    I think force feedback is a game-dependent feature. I know F1 Racing has it (IIRC).

    yeah, i know that.

    The force feedback feature in games are grey(unavailble). It means that the force feedback feature is supported by the game but it didn't recognize my pad correctly~.

    Maybe if you list some specific games, I could dig up some more info for you.

    yeah, thank you very much for your attention here.:)

    for instance, in the "Total Immersion Racing", there are greyed options for Force Feedback.... and Nascar Racing 2003 Demo(I'm looking for a full version) with the same problem.
    Well, until now i've only got those two games.

    USB Overdrive is often used for game pad support. I understand that your pad is already supported, but USB Overdrive may help with force feedback support. I don't know for certain that it supports force feedback, but that's my two cents.

    in fact, i've installed USB Overdrive once before, but i uninstalled it because its annoying message box everytime i log in.:)
