    Lots and lots of joystick buttons

    If, like me, you are using a joystick with more than 32 buttons you might be interested in this little utility I wrote. It lets you see the status of up to 128 buttons (the DirectX limit). I am not a programmer and wrote this quickly but it should work for you if you have up to date DirectX and .Net libraries.

    The program and source links are on my blog: http://workbench.freetcp.com/archives/695

    Re: Lots and lots of joystick buttons

    Thanks for putting this up. Seeing as my first (hopefully of many) project is going to be using a hacked joystick this will be very helpful. Thank you!

    That is interesting and useful. Thanks for sharing.

    I don't know HOW I would remember 112 buttons and switches, however.

    You mean actually write things down so you can go back and review?

    Re: Lots and lots of joystick buttons

    Hello!

    Some time ago I've been developing an interface board based on ARM7 (AT90SAM7) controller and shift registers chain.

    From the USB point of view it was a composite device - joystick with the maximum number of buttons (12 and axes ( plus custom part.
    I've developed (if the modification of the Microsoft DDK example can be called "development") the driver for the custom part.

    I can share both sources of the firmware and the driver and application.

    Does anybody wants it?
