"Re:To all readers"

April 16, 2013  |  By SoftwareGuy

 |  Version: JoyToKey 5.2.1

Pros

Decent program, I've used it before.

Cons

The CNET Installer contains unwanted programs-Read the summary.

Summary

As stated above, the CNET Installer does contain unwanted programs(you can decline the offer during set up) If you see a direct download link people, use that instead. You shouldn't have any problems.

"CONTAINS MALWARE"

March 12, 2013  |  By servetheservant

 |  Version: JoyToKey 5.2.1

Pros

None - this is not even JoyToKey.

Cons

The downloaded .exe installed 3 programs, none of which were JoyToKey -- they set my browser's search/homepage and resisted uninstalling by automatically triggering new processesnamed "au_.exe", "bu_.exe" etc. each time you try to uninstall.

DO NOT INSTALL THIS

Summary

ITS MALWARE.

"This is a good product that configure joysticks"

February 06, 2013  |  By allenq392

 |  Version: JoyToKey 5.2.1

Pros

works well you just have to figure out your key setups. I have generic joystick. I recommend if you have the $$$ invest in a better PC joystick. But this works for the less expensive ones.

Cons

I really do not have anything bad to say about this software. If you do not want to use it buy a Xbox PC joystick.

Summary

works well you just have to figure out your key setups. I have generic joystick. I recommend if you have the $$$ invest in a better PC joystick. But this works for the less expensive ones.

"A must-have for any joystick user"

December 27, 2010  |  By b00m3rang

 |  Version: JoyToKey 4.6

Pros

A very easy to use, flexible, and solid app that can convert joystick movements or button presses into any mouse or keyboard operation. Allows you to play any game that uses keyboard or mouse input using the joystick, or even navigate Windows.

Cons

Will probably require some fiddling with to customize to your personal needs, but that's not a fault of the software. Just be advised that some work is involved.

Summary

This program is great, and really makes it worth having a joystick on your Windows machine. All those games that were never meant to be played with a keyboard and mouse can now feel just like the arcade version. I even have profiles that let me use my arcade fightstick to navigate my web browser, and as a controller for Ableton Live.

"Fun, and easy to use."

December 26, 2010  |  By Tec88

 |  Version: JoyToKey 4.6

Pros

It's a cool program to have if you wanna play games with a controller any controller you have (well PC con, that is)

Cons

the only issues I have is that when using the joy stick on the controller it gets touchy and will have you ducking, and jumping a lot. If they had a way to use the directional pad that would be great.

Summary

It's a must have.

What's new in version 5.7
JoyToKey 5.7
  • Support for an absolute mouse movement (a.k.a. spring mode)
    • Mouse cursor can be positioned at a configured center location and can be moved within a specified range with an analog input stick. This can be useful for controlling an application like a flight simulator.
    • Besides, a regular button can be also used like a mouse shortcut by jumping the mouse cursor to a preconfigured position, followed by a mouse click.
  • Enhanced SHIFT key (virtual joystick) function to support delayed switch.
    • For example, combined with a "Button Number Mapping" feature, one button can be assigned for both a regular key input (for a short press) as well as for a SHIFT function (for a long press).
  • Enhanced "Switch depending on how long the button is pressed" in Keyboard2.
    • In case the event emulation is not recognized reliably when you press the button too quickly, JoyToKey can now hold it for a minimum duration. (default 20 msec)
  • Exposed hidden parameter "AnalogDeadZone" (which is used for DirectInput setup) in "Settings -> Configure Joysticks".
    • If you want to minimize the input threshold for your device, please try setting it to zero. If you need a different threshold for Stick1 and Stick2, you can continue to do so in "Options" tab for each profile.
  • Other minor bug fixes
