Emulating Mouse Using Gamepad ??

  1. Ello Ello,

    I was wondering, people might prefer mouse as standard pointing device . . . but is it possible to use your gamepad as a mouse ? Like the axis pad/joystick ?

    I would imagine that it would be hard to emulate and configure it to be compatible with different programs. Does anyone know of an application that will enable this feature ?

    I am aware of that there is some programs being developed . . . on the intel wireless gamepad and gravis stinger . . .

    I am currently using a Gravis Gamepad Pro (gameport) gamepad dueling with windows xp professional as my operating system.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated =)@

    Thanks,
    TRUFFLES

    I think the biggest issue would be finding software that would emulate the mouse. Also the gamepad would have to be very precise in order to be easy moving.

    My Nostromo n50 allows for it. I can set the D-Pad as the mouse's X and Y axes, although I never use it.

    I would imagine . . . I cannot use the Nostromo n50 software ?
    Is it designed for your specific gamepad ?

    That can be tough =/

    THANKS,

    Of course it is :p
    It only works for the n40, n45 and n50. Proprietary software.

    Hello, try using the JoyToKey, it worked for me with a PC-Action DragonPad, its pretty simple to use.

    Regards.
