    Default Using Joystick in MSTS : Solution !!!!

    PLEASE reply to poll at the end.

    One can remap button to control train but not the stick himself
    so I wrote Joygame that allow you for exemple to brake with the stick and power up with your joystick's throttle:

    JOYGAME 1.0 (W98 NT W2000)
    ***********
    Joygame use low level driver (VXD) to send custom keyboard command while moving Joystick.

    [Link Expired]

    -Easy to install/use/configure.
    -Can be used for ANY game (even for controlling window app)
    -small, fast (no frame drop in MSTS)
    -easy to share preset over the net (small size)
    -if you provide a small image with the same name of your preset this one will be displayed in Joygame. (jpg gif or bmp)
    -No shitware that can harm your computer: no DLL
    nor files invading your computer's system.

    [Link Expired]

    Easy to configure preset: you can switch from your game to Joygame,set a key than back, try... ect ect.
    Joygame continue to send key even minimized.

    here the "Edit" button panel: (key will be in your language)

    [Link Expired]
    click; press a key; Done !

    The downside: 14$ shareware
    ***************************
    Writing VXD driver is a pain I should buy very expensive tool
    and cannot afford paying the license just for fun.
    So sorry Joygame will be 14$. But I must be sure that some
    are interested to buy it otherwise I wont release it (sorry again but I really don't have money)

    POLL:
    *****
    -are you interested by such program ?
    -will you buy Joygame 14$ ? (I don't need a promess here)

    [font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON Aug-18-01 AT 09:18AM (EST)[/font][p]I might buy it, once I have heard what other people think of it.

    $14 is about 10 (current rates) so if it is as good as you say - I would buy it.

    1 question - how large will the download be?

    Yes it work well I just played 1 hour at msts without touching the keyboard :-)

    for now the whole directory with preset for msts , pictures and executable take less than 400ko I should also write the doc in HTML so I plan less than 700ko.

    it will be shareware with limited time so one can try it out.

    thanks for voting

    Joygame work now 100% for its purpose (I know I play hour at MSTS
    with it :-)

    todo list is:
    1-protection code
    2-doc
    3-beta testing & bug correcting (if any)
    4-buy the license of the tool used to access VXD driver
    5-release

    short delay: two week long delay: one month

    4&5 will be done only if I can expect to have income that will cover more or less the price of the expensive tool license.
    I know that I should advertise on other game board to expect
    this income but
    1: I hate that
    2: I'm so bad in english that my advertising don't explain very well in short word and don't make the soft attractive.

    do you have a so special configuration ?

    It would be nice for me to find someone with TWO joystick connected cause Joygame can be launched two time
    and I've included the option to manage two joystick as window can do.(at least it's into the programmer's doc)

    But I only tested two instance with one joystick. it work.
