Developer's Description

JoyToKey enables you to control many softwares (like web games, browsers, office applications or even Windows itself) by using your favorite windows joystick.

Whenever you press joystick buttons and sticks, JoyToKey will emulate keyboard strokes or mouse inputs based on joystick input so that the target application works as if you used a real keyboard or mouse. You can create multiple configuration files to switch across different key/mouse assignments. It also supports the automatic association with target applications so that the config file will switch automatically when the target application changes.

What's new in version 6.5

Version 6.5:
    • New feature to paste a pre-defined text to the target application
    • Enhancement for "Re-process when the same key continues while it's already pressed" option:
      • If this option is OFF, when the emulation of the same key continues (during sequence or from other buttons), that key will be only emulated once and kept hold.

        For example, if a button for "SHIFT+RIGHT" and a button for "SHIFT+DOWN" are both pressed, SHIFT will be only emulated once and will be kept until both buttons are released.

      • If this option is ON, SHIFT key will be pressed and released for each button, i.e. pressed and released twice in total.
    • Minor bug fixes
