    Ok, the service enumerates and post events for 4 joysticks.

    What do I do if the user decides to start a game or some other app that needs
    the joysticks ? How should I proceed there ?

    Help guys.
    Check for directx or opengl.

    Well, if someone launches a game, then they are probably going to be using either directx or opengl. If you check if those are running, then you can disable the service for a while.

    But what if the user launches an app that uses opengl/directx but doesn't use the joystick?
    AMD XP 2600+/512MB RAM/120GB hard drive
    Opus 150W/DVD/GPS/7" Lilliput TS/802.11g/Bluetooth
    Installed.

    Ummm... I dunno.

    My idea is to have the service spy on what apps are open, and if an app matches one of the list then then joysticks won't be intercepted.

    What list would you be referring to? I don't think he could come up with every possible app that would be using opengl/directx. Wouldn't he also need the exact title bar name if he were going to call the FindWindow API function? I don't think matching to a list would work well enough.

    I mean the user makes a list of what apps are going to be using THE JOYSTICK. So say you launch MAME, then Frodo stops monitoring the joystick port until MAME has been terminated.

    BTW: Put a space somewere in your vehicle title.

    That sounds like a good idea to me. Should work very well.

    BTW: Didn't realize what my vehicle title was doing...looks like our 9 fingered admin fixed it
