MOuse operation via joystick

  CodheadZogman 23:20 11 Aug 2005

My disabled son cannot use a mouse but is a dab hand with Playstation! I have a USB connector that allows the use of PS2 controller as a games joystick on the PC. What I now need is software to allow the use of the controller as a mouse. This will open up a whole new world for my lad so any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

When I put “joystick mouse emulation software” into Google I got quite a few hits. The top one being to:

“Originally requested by 3M for a disabled user, the story of "Joystick-To-Mouse" dates back to 1995. Using technology created by IMG & recognizing the need for software with the capability of using the joystick device to act like a mouse, "Joystick-To-Mouse" was created in conjunction with RJ Cooper & Associates. Continually improving the product and reacting to the interest, needs, and requests of customers, the latest release of "Joystick-To-Mouse" presents a completely new way to interface with Windows based PC's, much like IMG's My-T-Soft product line. With cross-over acceptance, Joystick-To-Mouse is used not only for providing accessibility to PCs for disabled users, but by all types of users who enjoy the "game-like" approach to running internet browsers & windows programs.”

Substituting “Freeware” for “Software” gave me a few more, most conspicuously click here

I can’t vouch for any of them though amigo, as I have no experience.

click here for JoytoKey, described as "a keyboard input emulator for joysticks. It converts joystick input into keyboard input (and mouse input)"
Though I've never used it.

I purchased a Saitek joypad(P2500) for my computer which comes with its own software for keyboard / mouse emulation when using the joypad it set me back about £25

I’ll go along with Completealias on that Saitek if you want to replace the controller as well. It’s one I use and it’s a quality product.
