    hi sohaibma,

    you may have a look for a "Playstation 2 - Adapter" for USB port. i've seen one in a shop for PS1! i didn't see one for ps2, but should exist..

    for controlling winamp with joystick, use this one
    http://www.winamp.com/plugins/details.php?id=134861
    (or search for another plugin on www.winamp.com)

    when plugged to the computer, anything can be controlled via Girder, which then can control winamp.

    there is a joystick plugin for both analog and digital joysticks.

    Is it possible to use a Analog Joypad as a mouse? To be more specific...is it possible to use the PlayStation 2 Analog Joypad as a mouse.

    I already have the adapter for the PlaySta2 (Playing emulated games) But that's just it...it only acts as a regular joypad and not a mouse....What I want is to have the joypad operate the Windows environment...Is this even possible?
