WAF? as in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wife_acceptance_factor
Well, probably not, but then what?

Probably not, but it's a good link...:laugh:

I used to have my joystick connected to my PC permanently, and it emulated a mouse. Stopped using it because it tended to make the "real" mouse drift up the screen, which was very annoying. If I remember correctly, I used something like this: http://www.electracode.com/4/joy2key/JoyToKey%20English%20Version.htm[^] which provides a configurable mouse and keyboard emulation for a joystick.

I agree if you want to say using joystick to substitute mouse is a bad idea. My 5. I used joystick for what it can be used and know that is a very powerful device; it should be used in a proper ways which can be far superior to mouse, but moving one with another is simply wrong thing.
