A Hammerhead FX is a game controller released by Interact Accessories Inc. in the late 1990's. Interact produced a driver for Windows 95/98, but only managed to release one beta driver for Windows 2000/XP before closing its doors. This driver was an improvement over the basic driver included with Windows, but still had some issues and bugs.

The USB version of the Hammerhead FX sported a redesigned d-pad that made it the only gamepad on the market with enough precision to pass the "Street Fighter Test". Combined with rumble feedback, no need for calibration and the ability to connect more than one gamepad at a time, the Hammerhead FX represented the first truly solid PC gamepad to hit the market. The only thing needed was a good driver.

HFX is a driver written from the ground up that realizes the full potential of the Hammerhead FX gamepad. It provides full featured vibration feedback, advanced programmability and support for multiple simultaneously connected gamepads. HFX was designed with stability, flexibility and ease of use in mind. With the programming features of the HFX driver, setting up your games becomes a matter of set it and forget it.
