    Could you let the joystick emulate keystrokes on the keyboard ?
    like assign certain buttons on the keypad to the functions on the joystick ?
    I would love to use the stick with the markus zehnder plugin.
    The way I see it, is, I need 11 switches to work with this plugin.
    The joystick I have happen to have these 11 'switches'

    I was going to use it with one of the com port pluggins, there's one which allows up to 16 buttons on a single port.

    dunno if the markus zehnder plugin has an option to be controlled via the com port..
    will check it out..

    But..
    Is it possible with some chip to take the input of the joystick (analog resistor values) to turn into keystrokes.. (with the old guts of an keyboard.. the thing only has to make contact..connect the wire so that the keyb. controller thinks a key has been pressed....)

    It should be possible, with a few chips, I can sketch up a block diagram now, but it'll be a while before I can get any more info, my testings no going great.

    testing no going great ? damned..
    I'll wait.. got the time..

    I figured out the Markus Zehnder Plugin can be controlled via: Keyboard, Serial Port, Parallel Port and WinLIrc

    So serial port can be done..
    however.. I have no experience in this.
    Should I wait for you to finish your testing ?

    also.. at http://llg.cubic.org/tools/sonyrm there is a schematic how to connect it to the joystickport of a computer.. but all software is in linux..


    Good luck with your testing !

    Do you have a link for Markus Zehnder Plugin, especially for the serial port interface. I've seen the Linux interface before, but as I don't have a game port or Linux it's not an option for me. Althought I contacted them a while ago and they where quite helpfull.

    As my sig says Xitel USB Audio.

    Looking at the Markus Zehnder Plugin, not 100% sure how the serial inpot works exactly, I should have some free time come the weekend so I'll have a play with it then.
