Mouse joy 2

Posted in awkward, utilities with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 1, 2009 by tayron

Hello again!

It’s been a while since my last post, so I figured I should write something here. Actually, I’m giving you a program I made in about 2 hours. The idea is to be able to use your joystick/gamepad to move the mouse on-screen (useful for sofa-surfing and loads of other things). The result is this program, which uses almost no CPU and about 700kb of RAM when minimized.

mouse_joy

Download:
mouse_joy_2.zip (16kb)

Requirements:
– Windows 98/2000/Xp/Vista
– a gamepad/joystick

Instructions:
– plug in your gamepad/whatever
– unpack the program and start it up
– minimize it
– use the D-pad or analog stick to move the mouse, button 1 for click (press twice for double-click), button 2 for right click, button 3 (hold down) to make the mouse move faster and button 4 to quit the program
have fun:)
P.S.: you can use your normal mouse too while mouse_joy_2 is active;)

P.P.S.: if the program doesn’t seem to work, try unplugging and plugging your gamepad/joystick back in a few times, and restart mouse_joy_2. Usually, a few unplugs do the job, but you never know.

Feedback would be apreciated:)
