JoyToKey?

#1CammyApplePosted 8/1/2013 1:37:48 AM
So I'm looking to play Binding of Isaac with the 360 controller. My brain just can't make it happen very well with keyboard. The game suggests joytokey.

So I look it up and am met with a myriad of results. Some want me to pay for it, others don't. Some say it has malware, others don't.

Which link/site should I be going to for this?

Ah, I remember that BS. This is the official download:

http://download.cnet.com/JoyToKey/3000-2094_4-75220348.html

But you want the smaller "direct download" link, not the big button for CNet's spam downloader. I expected better from a large company like that, but then again they did ruin GameFAQs.

I wonder why they didn't just program native controller support for that game.

Don't ever download anything from CNET. They wrap their installers in Adware and malware with hidden toolbars etc.

Joy2Key is free.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/joy2key/

It will take you some doing to set it up if you use analog sticks though.

I doubt the TC is going to compile that.

The real download link on CNet is clean. It's just hard to see.

I'd be willing to learn. However the link seems to be down at the moment.

Is http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/JoyToKey.shtml safe?

(I've read about downloading from cnet so I had been avoiding that.)

I also use Joy2key for Binding of Isaac, and it works perfectly. Make sure you adjust the sensitivity of the left analog stick. I think I have mine set at like 30% or something. If you leave it at default, you run around all over the place by slightly pressing the stick in any direction.

Also you'll need to map the keys to your preference. If you're using a 360 controller, you'll map the 4 X,Y,A,B buttons to shoot, and then it's up to you for the rest of the actions. I have start as bombs, left bumper for my activated item, and right bumper for pills/tarot cards. I also have the right analog stick to move the cursor so I can navigate the main menu without having to grab my mouse. Just tweak with the settings and you'll find something that works for you. It's worth it IMO, I hate playing BoI with the keyboard.

And as to why joystick support isn't supported natively, it has something to do with the Flash that McMillen coded the game with. Apparently Flash doesn't support gamepads, and McMillen has regretted not coding it in Java or something else, especially after the game got really popular. That is why he is remaking the game. BoI:Rebirth will be coming out this year I think.

You should really use xpadder instead, TC. Does the exact same thing, only it's far more user-friendly. The maker started charging for it after a while but you can still download one of the free versions of it and they work well.

Xpadder really is the best thing you can use for this type of thing.

Yeah I was going to say xpadder works fine... the newest version isn't free but you can still get the older version and run it in xp compatibility mode (since it complains about windows 7 otherwise)

I had to use Xpadder for Exceed Gunbullet Children

I don't remember if I've ever used Joy2Key
