What is PPJoy?
PPJoy is a joystick device driver for Windows 2000 and later. There is also limited support for Windows 98 and Windows Me. PPJoy was designed for joysticks connected to the parallel port but it also supports other devices via the virtual joystick interface
Supported devices are:
* Joystick emulation using the keyboard or mouse
Windows will treat these devices just like any other joystick and they can be used in any game or application that accepts joystick input.
There are lots of USB joysticks out there that are a lot less hassle to install and configure. So here is why you may want to use PPJoy:
* PPJoy is free for non-commercial use and you may already have a perfectly good controller supported by PPJoy.
* You want to emulate joystick input from another application.
PPJoy seems to be a good way to simulate Joystick-Input. It offers:
Keyboard & Mouse to Joystick translation and
a DLL to directly control the virtual Joystick.
The authors Website seems to be down, but PPJoy can still be found on variouse download-sites, e.g. http://www.simtel.ne...PJoy/75176.html
