USB Game devices in DOS!
« on: September 02, 2009, 02:49:29 pm »
I just found this: http://bretjohnson.us/ and this http://szanella.tripod.com/joyemueng.htm

The second link is perhaps more interesting:

Quote
JoyEmu and JoyEm are two TSR programs that, when installed, poll joystick port and mouse and stuff keyboard buffer simulating keypresses according to device movements; keys to be stuffed, autofire rates, joystick sensibility and read mode, mouse sensibility are only a few of the many settings that can be changed. The emulators can also be removed when no more necessary.(...)

    *  Dos 5.0+ or Windows 9x/ME; probably Windows 3.1 is also supported (but untested);
    * analogue or digital joystick/joypad, mouse;
    * Pentium class computer (reccomended 100+ Mhz).

Perhaps this has been found before, but I was to excited to do a search here. This could mean that I could use my A-Pac and my TurboTwist spinner in DOS!

Have you tried this out yet? If so, how is it?

Sorry, I have not. I haven't had a reason to really, since my only DOS machine has no USB ports. :( Just an interesting find I needed to share. :D

Interesting. My (already bought) joystick choices were limited to non-usb ones :badmood:.    I wonder if the TSR has much performance impact... Most of us with DOS machines run it that way due to limited power....
