Default Using a PC controller as a mouse

Is there any way to make a PC joystick/controller act as a mouse, and also partly the keyboard, in terms of the escape key being controlled by a button?

Maybe a program?

Thanks for the help in advance!

Hey thanks, I'll try that out when I get back

I'd of thought the principle would be rather simple, using 2 buttons for left and right click for example.

There must be more programs

The reason is, I've now got a computer set up to TV, and can't be using the mouse/keyboard for playing emulators, etc

Thanks

I don't want to give you any trouble looking though, as I'm back on my own computer now, I can help search for it as well. I was thinking it'd be quite an easy task, so was expecting someone to go, "yeah, heres one"

I'll keep you updated on if I find any, and I'll check that one out you've linked to

Hey, I must say K-Pow that the program works flawlessly

Thanks so much for the help!!!

The only problem is, the program stops working because its a demo every hour or so, and you have to start it back up using a mouse

Other than that, its apsoloutly great, and since its working on an emulator machine, i select the ROM, which opens the correct program to run it, and then i have designated a button on the controller to act as Alt-F4 which you can program it to do. It then shuts off the program and you select another ROM. Its perfect

Thanks again!
