I have a USB game controller, but I have a game, (Jazz Jackrabbit 2) that will not respond to it. Does anyone out there know of some kind of virtual driver out there that can route a USB game device to a game port address?

Not sure about a gameport, but you can use Joy2Key to map the Joystick buttons to keyboard buttons.

Something like that could work, too.

Should have mentioned I use Windows XP. psyduck.png

I use JoyToKey. It's the only way my Genesis controller will work with anything that's not an emulator.
And yes, it's for Windows.

I didn't have any problem using my USB gamepad with JJ2 the last time I played it on XP. No game for Windows ever accesses hardware directly. Anything that Windows recognizes as a joystick should work. Have you checked that Windows detects your gamepad properly?

its worth checking if the gamepad/joystick is being 1st, sometimes that is causing trouble.... I have 3 or so installed in my PC, and I have to set their orders if I want something specific to work.
