Use your joystick as a Keyboard and Mouse

Most old games for PC rely on keyboards and mice as controllers and don´t offer support for joysticks, joypads of steering wheels. Thanksfully, there is JoyToKey, an easy to use freeware program that lets your favorite controller emulate a keyboard and/or mouse while playing your favorite old game. You can even program any controller button to emulate a keyboard shortcut sequence and in case of joypads, it automatically configures the [select] and [start] buttons correctly. So far I have tried JoyToKey succesfully to control PONG (PC) with a gamepad, which is easier than with a keyboard.
