First I have to say that it might be a bug in devfs or what it's called in FreeBSD (just moved from GNU/Linux to FreeBSD). When I'm booting with my gamepad connected to the usb port it finds it at the device ugen0 but I have to have it on uhid0 so I have to unplug it and reattach it, then the uhid0 device is created.
Oh well, the biggest problem is that if I use the gamepad in for example zsnes to play some old classic snes games. After a few minutes (sometimes just one minute and sometimes more then 10 minutes) it stops responding and when I exit the application everything locks up and after a few seconds the system reboots automatically.
For the first problem (devfs), just boot with the gamepad connected.
For the other problem:
Launch zsnes (or another program that uses the gamepad) and start play a game (using the gamepad ofcourse).
