Touchpad Joystick

This is a dirty little program for simulating a joystick on a typical laptop with a Synaptics Touchpad.

All you need:

How to install

Get Deon's PPJoy driver from his homepage, if you don't have it already. For a connection between your Synaptics Touchpad and PPJoy you need this touchjoystick program from here.

Install PPJoy and create one virtual Joystick with it.

Unzip my program to a folder you like and start it. If your Synaptics API is already registered in Windows the joystick should be working now. Just calibrate it with the Windows Joaystick setup and you should be able to use it in your games or what ever you want to do with it.

Deon has a new Blog here, for latest information on PPJoy. PPJoy-Blog

Really short trouble shooting

If touchpadjoystick can't find Synaptics API, try to register it manually. Just open a command window. (Enter in Run dialog from Start menu „cmd“ and click OK)

Than type or copy into it the following line.

regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\SynCom.dll

Press Enter and that should be it.
