joy2kbd v1.3  (C) 2012  Lorence Lombardo.


Ever wanted to make that keyboard only game have joystick support ?

With joy2kbd you can.


Requirements:-

joy2kbd has only been tested on my Amithlon/WinUAE system with CatWeasel
Mk3, but in theory should run on a 68020 or greater. Also the lowlevel
library is required which is a part of "CD32 OS", "OS3.1+" and a 3rd party
version is available from here:-

http://aminet.net/package/driver/input/NewLowLevel


CLI usage:-

Simply type "joy2kbd" to use the default configuration
"PROGDIR:joy2kbd.cfg" or specify your own. Then run your game.
Press Ctrl-C to quit joy2kbd.

Alternatively:-

Click on the supplied "joy2kbd_script" from the WorkBench.


Editing a configuration:-

You will need a Raw Key Code Utility.
Personally I like the one from here:-

joy2kbd has been tested on Amithlon with the following game:-

http://aminet.net/package/game/shoot/vectoroids-68k

This game is not suitable for testing the 2nd Joystick entry.


The 2nd Joystick entry was tested as a copy of the 1st on Mame with no
Joystick support on the game frogger on "WinUAE 0.9.92".


v1.1 has been tested and significantly improved on Amithlon with the
following game:-

http://aminet.net/package/game/jump/OpenJazz_68k


Each joystick port has only been tested individually so far. No testing
for 2 Joysticks simultaneously has been done at this stage.


Suggestions of test material are welcome.


Tip:- If your game uses a startup script putting a "run >nil: " without
      the quotes just before the main executable is recommended if possible
      for best results, if its not already there.
