USB Overdrive

Licence: Shareware ($20.00)
Version 3.0 | Release Date: 2009-09-16 | Download

New release for Mac OS X 10.4 or later, including 64-bit Snow Leopard.

The USB Overdrive now includes support for media buttons on most USB keyboards and talks to many additional input devices that were previously not handled. It still supports all compliant mice, trackballs, trackpads, joysticks, gamepads and other gaming devices from any vendor.

System requirements:
- Any Mac with an Intel or PowerPC CPU
- Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, 10.5 Leopard or 10.6 Snow Leopard

New in version 3.0:
-Snow Leopard 64-bit kernel support
-New and much improved user interface
-Powerful new low-level engine
-Many new assignable actions
-Device-specific and location-specific settings
-Import/export settings files
-Support for more devices, buttons and controls
-Support for media buttons on most USB keyboards
-Advanced mouse pointer options
-New scrolling method

Missing in action:
-Old settings from version 10.4.8 cannot be imported to the new version. I am really sorry about this, but the old settings were handled by legacy code that is no longer supported in 64-bit. The good news is that this will never happen again, as you can now import and export settings at will.

Temporarily missing in action:
-Specific support for non-compliant buttons on some devices has not yet been restored in the new version. I'll do my best to add it back as soon as possible.
