Publisher's Description:

JoystickCursor Control Tool - This tool maps the movement of a joystick to the cursor keys (up,down,left,right) as well as other keys. Up to 128 keys can be assigned. Multiple joysticks, key combinations and configurations supported.

Great for scrolling around in the internet browser or similar tools without using a keyboard, may also be handy for windows games which do not support the joystick directly or electronic interfaces.

The taskbar icon shows the state of the tool. If the joystick symbol is crossed red, the joystick is not installed or connected properly.

Double-click the icon to close down the tool.

System requirements: Joystick supported by standard Win32 functions, Windows95/98/ME/2000/XP

Hi all I am running a show control application called show magic and it required a space bar press to step through the show. I wanted to do this remotely and with the aid of a radio controled switch closer connected to the joystick port then mapped to the space bar using joystickcurser control tool 2.21 works well job done!! many thanks D.S.

It does exactly what it claims to do! Works awesome! Easy to setup! It makes my Cyborg Evo Force work with Heroes over Europe when Saitek's own software wouldn't!

Works great, haven't had a problem with it. The only thing that bugs me is the interface. It's a bit hard to tell which key goes to which button if you've assigned more than 10.

norton 360 saw .exe file as a virus and deleted it. After adjusting that got it installed and so far works great.

I was looking for something like this since I use a "PS2-Dualshock 2" joystick to play on my pc, but games like "Wolverine Origins" or "Gears of War" crashed when I used it. But the configuration isn't what you'd call user-friendly, and in lack of a manual I gave up after 2 hours of trial and error.

I was searching for a delphi 7 component to handle joystick from directx. JoystickCursor Control Tool 2.21 is not was I need, and then a deleted it from my PC.

I want a program to make my keyboard act like a joystick not a program that make my keyboard act like a keyboard ie I want to make my number keys turbo or auto fire or even to9 hold don't my number one key and heve it it both my ctl and 1 key at the same time repeatedly. You wording my it sound likw you had that I deleted that program secends after useing it for that very reason it isn't what I wanted.

It works to a point, but having problems setting up controls, but I also have a broken left hand, so I'm limited to what I can do, and how I do it.

Good software and pretty easy to use, one problem however is that the program failed to detect the second joystick on my controller. This is a real shame because I find that this program is more easy to use and has more features then many of the professional keyboard and mouse emulating programs I've previously used.

Easy and successfull configuration to use joystick for keyboard-only game.

Life Saver!

I just purchased Bioshock for windows from best buy for $10, only to find out the only controller it was compatible with was the insanely expensive ($60) xbox360 controller for windows. I downloaded the program and saved a profile, and voila, I'm playing Bioshock with my old logitech game pad. Amazing! Works with Windows Vista (64 bit) with no problems.

Simply nice

The tool is nice. Its great. It detects my joypad and I can map its buttons to my keyboard. I have 4 joypad and it detects them all. It has a simple interface and it did its job.

Superb little program enabling the use of my joypad in some of my games that did not have the option. My enjoyment of these games has improved massively. An easy download and simple interface make this program indispensable.

Microsolf Wheel with FF runs on Vista 64 bit

I'm using my old wheel from Microsolf with my old Nascar4 Racing game and Underground2. It works great, just as it did on Windows 95, 98, me and Xp Professional. I was suprised it worked as soon as I hooked it up. Didn't have to download any drivers. It just started to run with all of my old games. I sure wish I could use my Pro FF joystick. Would love to have it with my Battlefield2 game.

Great product

This was just what I needed to play Bruno Marcos' great freeware Star Wars games with my Microsoft Sidewinder joystick on Windows XP, since I could not find any "official" product that would map keys to joystick buttons. Actually this program does the opposite but it doesn't matter as long as I dont' have to use the keyboard any more.

Easy to use

I am not computer savvy. My family pokes fun at my lack of experience and technological retardation.
I found this program quite easily in a simple Google search and had my joystick compatible and capable in less than 10 minutes.

My children were impressed with me, finally (teens).

I very much appreciate your program. Thank you.

joystick cursor

I've used this to control the actions of my USB RETRO 8 WAY PRO GAMING USB COMPUTER/PC JOYSTICK but it simply didn't work. It appears that this software only works with recognized analogue joysticks. My logitech wingman works. But this isn't the one I want to use.

Top stuff.

My saitek pro gamer stopped working no matter what I did, googled alternatives and this popped up along with others, but this was most reaspomsive AND easiest to use top stuff.

Good at what it does

I use this program to map certain keys to my steering wheel whilst playing a certain game that doesn't have full joystick support. It works well, with no problems.

Very nices!

Works real good so I have to give it an excellent!
I'd use promgram like this befor but this one I download was.
One of the bests because is not so hard to use > config.
Also configuring system is nices and ezy to setup.
But not all games work for this progame very sad :(
But still the is one of the best hope you come up with more somthing.
Like for morrpg games I'm useing l dilong ps2 usb joystick not a very good joybut still work fine.
Anyways don't mind if the program have more buttons to play with or an in game.
Mouse control like press button and change from joy to mouse.
Alwell still excellent for a freeware.
Plz let me know how the price vr would be or is like the same.
Don't mind a new Interface + auto installing progam = will be super.
Thanks for this vr I got hope for the news.

Author's Response:
-More buttons? You can have up to 128 of them, should be sufficient for most cases I suppose.
-Mouse emulation: JoystickCursorTool does not really support it, but the JoystickMouseTool (available on the same website) does.
You can use both the JoystickCursorTool as well as the JoystickMouseTool in parallel, using the same or a different joystick.
Changing between joystick and mouse is not really necessary as you can also use both the real mouse and the JoystickMouseTool emulated one at the same time, they┬┤ll move the same cursor and act with the same buttons being pressed.
Maybe an option to toggle the configuration by using a certain button or axis position might be helpful, just have to find out how to make it working reliably without the user beeing able to watch the config dialog.
An installer is something which is not necessary - you can start the tool right out of a .zip file or from CD, and I dislike installer bloatware anyway.
A new interface - depends on what should be there or what it should look like.

Missing features?

Only thing that's missing is movement mapping similar to Firefox functions (move left and then forward...). On the other side this can be difficult with analogue device

Very useful tool, I used it as a stick shift for transmission in driving game. My analog joystick isn't very precise, but combination of button and some movement solved my problem with unwanted inputs. Interface is quite simple so it's easy to use this tool. I knew what to do in few seconds, only thing I had to read in documentation is "typematic", documentation is good and understandable. I recommend this tool for everyone...

Which features do you think are missing? Maybe they will be there in the next version...

Great Stuff

This software worked wonders for me for playing games which did not have a means for using a joystick. Highly recommended.

It Works Well

This application works. The only thing I would have it do in addition to what it does already is to handle the analog aspects of a control. I have a Nostromo game pad with a scrollwheel type control (it's the Z-axis). It actually has a range of motion from top to bottom, not just the top or bottom state. I'm not sure exactly how the application would handle this since you're mapping the thing to a keyboard (maybe the keys 1 through 9 or 0 on the keyboard). Actually, that would be perfect, as you scroll up, the keys cycle up to 9, and as you scroll down, the keys cycle down to 1. But otherwise, it works just as advertised.
