HappyGear 2.6


HappyGear 2.6 Now Available

VANCOUVER, Washington – 13 January, 2003 Austin-Soft today announced the
release of HappyGear 2.6, our game utility to bridge newer USB game devices
– such as joysticks, racing wheels, and gamepads – with programs that were
not designed to use those devices. The new version improves the user
experience while simplifying installation.

HappyGear 2.6 has been rebuilt using the latest development tools to
improve performance and resolve problems, and has simplified installation
by becoming entirely self-contained. There is no longer any dependence upon
extensions to be loaded at startup, however the full functionality that
HappyGear has been known for has been maintained. The user interface has
been clarified and features added to simplify configuration of gaming
device elements.

“HappyGear continues to support the Macintosh gaming community by making
configuration easier,” said Glenn L. Austin, CEO of “We
are attempting to simplify the notoriously difficult task of configuring
programs to use gaming devices, while still providing all of the extensive
functionality that HappyGear provides.”

HappyGear 2.6 sells for $30, while upgrades from previous versions are free.
