    I would like to get a joystick for my Macintosh so as to better destroy aliens in Starcraft2. I bought a Logitec Attack 3 in the belief that it would work.

    It did not.

    I downloaded Controllermate in the belief that I could make the joystick work.

    It did not.

    Does anybody make a Joystick with OSX drivers?

    Please help: aliens are closing in on me.

    I just cam home with a MacAlly game pad and downloaded the driver. The install directions say, go to game setting to set up game pad inside the game. Inside the game there is no way to set up a game pad.

    I’d like a joystick anyway but it is really dumb that nobody has a joystick where I can assign the buttons use from a control panel.

    I’m the wrong person to ask, since I have an old 15-pin Game port CH Products Yoke and Pro Pedals connected to my Mac via a “Super Joybox” that converts Game port to USB.

    Then I got my old Thrustmaster pro working with the iMate ADB->USB adapter and the (32-bit) Thrustmaster OS X driver.

    All work ok for me, but obviously a very geeky solution that required a bunch of hard-to-find hardware. wink

    Fun, though! smile
