Second keyboard as gamepad?
Hello guys, is it possible to use this software to make my pc see a second usb keyboard as a gamepad? I wanna play games like Blur(http://www.gamespot.com/blur/) and Split Second(http://www.gamespot.com/split-second/) with a friend on the same pc. I really can't afford a gamepad at the moment, so any way to make this work would be very appreciated. Thank you.
surely these games would let you use the keyboard to control it anyway? and that isn't what pinnacle is for really, pinnacle emulates the keyboard on a Gamepad. However you can use ppjoy to emulate a gamepad using a keyboard, but its kind of complex to use.
Well I tried just pluging it in and playing. Split/second(and olso nfs high stakes:P) worked since the split screen in that game normally works with 2 players on the same keyboard, so as long as we used different keys we played with 2 keyboards at the same time. However Blur did not, it was waiting for a gamepad. And I'd olso like to try things like Left For Dead, and that will totaly not work without some emulation of some kind. I'll try to see ppjoy if you don't have any other ideas, do you know where I could find some good guides for ppjoy?
There is very little online on ppjoy sadly. I guess i could write a guide sometime but its been a while since iv'e used it. if you make a virtual gamepad in the main utility then use the keyboard remixer (or whatever its called) you should be able to get your keyboard to function as a Gamepad to some extent. If you want Xinput you may need to use the overrides or the 360 controller emulator on the virtual gamepad. It's a great hassle but its the only way of doing it i can think of that might work.
