Though we managed to get Guitar Hero II's
USB-enabled X-plorer controller working with Windows XP
, we couldn't manage to get it rocking with Mac OS X. Lucky for us, our friends at TUAW
wouldn't take no for an answer. They emailed the developer of the open source Xbox 360 controller driver
for Mac OS X who was able to implement support for the X-plorer controller in the latest revision, version 0.05 released over the weekend. Of course, the first thing to test out? Frets on Fire
which, they happily report, works great with the X-plorer. The best part: the white guitar no doubt matches your shiny white Mac. Now get some white leather pants, and you're in business.
