There are already very feature-rich joystick to keyboard mappers out there, be it JoyToKey or XPadder. However, both are not Freeware and both lack the possibility to easily switch configurations from outside the applications, which would be necessary if you use game front-ends like HyperSpin. This is where J2K has it's strengths.
With this release J2K is complete for my personal use. Any upcoming version will contain requested features from the users and bugfixes if necessary.
Version 1.1 has increased stability regarding disconnection and reconnection of joysticks.
Main Menu: Create configurations here
Edit Window: Edit the joystick to key mapping here
- Supports up to 32 joysticks / game pads (Buttons, POVs and Analog directions)
- Allows very quick setup of mappings
- Tell J2K which config to use by launching "J2K.exe CONFIGNAME", particularly launch "J2K.exe Empty" to suspend J2K from mapping anything.
Read the readme.txt for details.
In order to use J2K, you need to have .Net Framework 3.5 and Managed DirectX Runtime installed. The Setup for Managed DirectX Runtime is included in the J2K download, .Net Framework 3.5 is already included in Windows 7.
