Post Custom Joysticks
Someone in the forum has answered a post with a way to create a custom joystick with the keyboard. http://sethioz.com/mediawiki/index.php5/Installing_PPJoy_on_Windows_7_(Win7_/_Win_7) Do any of you know if there is another program for this purpose? :-( :oops:

Hi roboRed,
I had posted about ppJoy since that's what I had experience with from another project a couple years ago. Google gives another project, VJoy, that appears to have better driver support for modern OSes.

Let us know how it works.

Cheers,
--Ryan

It works for me. Note that when you start the program, it just places an icon in the system tray (icons in the lower right corner of the screen). To configure it, double click on the VJoy icon (looks sorta like an old school Atari joystick).
