Hi,

Firstly my apologies for the duplicate post but this seems to be a more active forum so I thought I'd give it a go.

I have a sl-c3200 running the sharp rom.

I have got my joypad working as far as the Z is concerned - it tests fine as /dev/js0

However I want to use something to map the joypad inputs to the keyboard for two reasons
1) The game emulators which have joystick support are SLOW
2) Some game emulators don't have joystick support!

So I followed the setup in the joy2key thread and installed joy2key but no matter what I do joy2key doesn't seem to pass any inputs to any other programs.

For example I run
joy2key -config kbd1

I get the usual guff about it starting up and not being an official version and it says ^C to exit.

So I run Zeditor and press all the buttons on my joystick and nothing happens....

I've tried a few different configs or even specifying my own but nothing seems to work.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks,

Puffer

Wow, no one ever replied to this? I was getting a little curious at getting a joystick to work with all the emulators in my zaurus. Anyone know where this joy2key zaurus package is? Anyone else ever use a joystick with their zaurus?

Tried it ages ago and gave up due to weird signal mappings.
