Hiya. (again)
I have an old pc that has usb 1.1 and was wondering if I can get a usb "SNES style" pad drivers in DOS ?
I did Google this and most results show gravis.

Making DOS recognize USB was a pain when I tried it last year, I ultimately gave up on it.

If you don't want to use an "Advanced Gravis" pad in your game port, there's a program called SNESKEY that allows you to connect a real SNES pad to a parallel port.

There are schematics online for building your own adapter, or you can order one from Raphnet.

I'm at a certain stage now where I've discovered loading usbuhci.com + usbjstik.com + joykeys which I believe were all written by Bret Johnson..
This for the most part works it's going to require some tweaking in the buttons.
However I'm still in need of a bit help on how to get these files to autoload on boot that would save me a lot of time between reboots ?

Can anyone assist ?
Scrap that.. .this works at c:\ prompt for up down left right tied to cursors and space and enter all works great. However on loading Duke3d or doom it won't do any of the keypress'
