I want to try and get a joystick/gamepad working on my 860, without buying a usb cf host card (too expensive at the moment), and i figure there are 3 ways of doing it:
1. Infra red controller - using irk maybe or lirc - this seems like the easiest way for a non-guru like me to get it working, all that would be needed is a new keymap for irk afaics... does this sound right? also i cant seem to find a cheap infra red game controller anywhere either, any ideas? (im in the uk)
2. Serial port controller - Getting a serial gamepad/joystick and plugging it into the Z's serial port - this would require making a special wire, out of the realms of my technical skills - and probably porting a driver...... however it would probably be the most stable solution.. Anyone want to build a serial z gamepad for me? - for reward obviously :-)
3. Some type of overlay that fits over the zaurus keyboard, like the joysticks for nokia phones - it would provide a joystick/stick and easier to control buttons which would make it easier to play on than the almost flat buttons (which are actually pretty responsive)... This may not be so feasible, but again i may be able to build something usable quite easily from random pieces of game controllers - if no-one can help with the other solutions i guess this is the route i'll take...
Apart from the lucky guys who have the usb cf host cards (or 6000's :-)) How are other people playing snes9x and other emu's on the Zaurus? any creative ideas for control or controllers?
