Hexy and Keyboard

Postby relodan » Fri Jan 17, 2014 11:28 pm

I've been looking for an alternative ways to control Hexy without the use of PS3 controllers. And I found one that emulates joysticks or gamepads. The program was designed to provide an open-source replacement for PS3 controllers. It consists of virtual joystick devices that is seen by the system as a standard joystick but its position-data is written to it by a feeder application. If you are an application writer you can very easily write an application that controls a joystick (e.g. mouse-to-joystick, keyboard-to-joystick). If you are a beginner in device drivers you can take this code and enhance it to support more (or less) axes, buttons or POVs.

Check out my hexy video:

Finally, I don't have to spend $$$ for controllers, adapters or any additional external devices just to control hexy.

Thanks,

So here it is! You can download the virtual joystick driver for you to try it out!

It works perfectly when you're using MIchal's pomoco 1.2 or 2.1

Nice work.

Could you not replace the pygame joystick with keyboard to the same effect, this way not requiring a 3rd party application?

Well I can give it a try but not sure if it will work. Can you try modifying the codes?
