Use joystick as handbrake

Discussion in 'Sim Racing Hardware' started by Steve Pearce, May 2, 2013.

  1. My wheel, a T500 RS, has one problem, there is no easy way to use a handbrake whilst turning (buttons are in the wrong place to be able to hold a button with your thumb, for example).

    Ive just purchased and installed RBR so im thinking of ways that i could perhaps do this slightly different.

    I have an old flight sim joystick that I thought might work. What i need is some software that would detect the input and after a certain movement would trigger a keystroke in the game. I guess PPJoy or similar would work but i cant at the moment find a working link.

    Does anyone have any ideas how I may set this up?
     
  2. Not sure if it's possible but you could have a look at JoyToKey:

    I use it to map buttons on my wheel to hotkeys for stuff outside the game (like push to talk or reset facetracknoir) as Fanatec doesnt let me configure a keypress on any of the buttons, works fine for that and I think what you want should be possible too.
