How to Configure Ppjoy


PPJoy is a Windows driver for digital joysticks which is supported for Windows 2000 and Windows XP. PPJoy will run in Windows 98 and Windows ME with restrictions. Windows NT and Windows 95 are not supported. Once the PPJoy download is installed, the joysticks are configured through the Control Panel.

Things You'll Need

  • The original PPJoy CD if you're using Windows 98 or ME.
  • Click Start then select Control Panel. (For Windows XP, click Start, select Settings then select Control Panel from the side menu.)

  • Double click Parallel Port Joysticks.

  • Click Add in the Configure New Controller dialog.

  • Open the Parallel Port drop down list. Then select the port to which the new joystick will be connected.

  • Open the drop-down list to select your controller type.

  • Open the drop-down list to select the appropriate interface. If the port already has the interface type defined, this selection will be grayed out.

  • Open the drop down lists for Controller number and for Controller sub type. Select the appropriate values from the list, then click Add.

  • Select Install the software automatically in the Found New Hardware Wizard dialog. Insert the PPJoy CD if using Windows 98 or ME. Click Next.

  • Click Continue Anyway in the Hardware Installation dialog for Windows Logo testing if this dialog opens.

  • Click Finish to close the New Hardware Wizard.

Tips & Warnings

  • PPJoy supports 16 joysticks. You'll get an error message that reads "PPJoy cannot find a new ProductID to allocate" if you try to add a 17th joystick. For Windows 98 and ME users, PPJoy will not share the parallel port with any other devices. If any other devices need to use the same port, PPJoy must be disabled in the Device Manager.
