Joystick Mapper is an application that allows you to configure your joysticks or gamepads to simulate keyboard keys/mouse movement/mouse click/mouse scroll, so you can control any app or game using them, even the ones without built-in support.
A very good companion for First Person Shooters, Flash Games, Media Players, for example.
Works great with a variety of gamepads, including (but not limited to) Xbox 360 and Ps3.
- Use any axis, dpads or buttons on your joystick to simulate keyboard and mouse
- Map any of the 4 directions from an Analog Stick independently
- Smooth mouse movement
- Adjust mouse speed for analog sticks per direction individually, this can help with crappy gamepads
- Analog Shoulder Triggers can be used as buttons
- Any "weird" combination you want:
Button/Dpad/Analog Stick/Analog Trigger --> Keyboard/Mouse/Click/Scroll
- Ready-to-use examples, easily modifiable
- Compatible with USB and Bluetooth Joysticks
- Easy to use interface.
- To map Key-Combinations like Command+Q, just map two or more keys to the same input (in this example, one for Command and another for Q)
- Compatible with controllers that does use the standard HID Joystick interface
- You may need to install a third party driver for PS3 and Xbox controllers, you can find links to them in the Support site FAQ
- If your PS3 gamepad does not respond to any input when connected using USB, just press the central "PS" button once
- Wireless Xbox 360 Gamepads, sadly, does not use Bluetooth, you may need an adapter in this case. Search on the web for "Microsoft Wireless Gaming Receiver"
- Other similar apps may prevent Joystick Mapper from operating correctly, if you have one and have problems, please disable them before using Joystick Mapper
