Joykey | Joystickevent to Keyevent

What Joykey is

Joykey converts joystick events into keyboard events. So this tool enables you to use a joystick for simulating keyboard entries, which means you can, for example, play Flash games using your joystick.

Joykey supported joystick events

Joykey supports the directions left, up, right, down and up to eight joystick buttons.

Joykey configuration

Keyboard configurations are defined by external XML files stored in a directory called "joykey_sets". Within these files keycodes will be assigned to a specific joystick event. It's possible to edit these files or create files for new configurations. Joykey will load all these configurations on applicationstart and offer them to you in the keyboard configuration combobox.
