New Developer Site Features

  New! Mac OS X Games Support TouchSense Force Feedback
  Immersion has now extended its industry-standard TouchSense force feedback support for games to the Mac OS X v10.2.3 platform. The new force feedback API for the Mac supports force feedback steering wheels, joysticks, and other game controllers with the same ease of development you've known on the PC. Whether you are designing a driving game or flight simulator on the Mac OS, you can now take advantage of the realism that force feedback offers. Youfll aim better, fly farther, drive faster, and generally play better with force feedback on the Mac OS X v10.2.3 platform.

December 2002 Mac OS X Developer Tools for Apple Developer Connection (ADC) members are available.

  We'd love to hear your suggestions for making the Developer Site a better and more useful place to visit. Write to us at [email protected] and we'll take your comments into serious consideration. After all, we're here only to serve you, the TouchSense developer.
