This program has been superceeded by the PIE program mentioned below
The Directinput Emulator program is a program that converts the 6 P5 axis, 5 finger axis, 5 finger buttons, and the 4 top P5 buttons into choosable Joystick equivalents. So that you can use the P5 glove in any game where you would normally use a joystick. This greatly opens up the opportunitys for games that can be played with the P5.

This program was originally uploaded to the P5 Yahoo Group File Section, if you wish to make sure you have the latest version.
You may need to fiddle with some PPjoy settings relative to the game you wish to run (by going into Control Panel --> Parallel Port Joysticks --> Mapping). Here is my recommended Default settings if you get lost, they allow for the use of all 6 movement axis as well as the Pointer finger and Thumb (sorry, only 2 fingers):

This will give you these results under Control Panel --> Game Controllers:
The 2 Axis in the first Box are the P5's X (updown) and Y (leftright) movement/translation axis.
the rest are in this order: Z (forward back) movement/translation axis,
X rotation axis (yaw), Y rotation axis (pitch), Z rotation axis (roll),
Thumb axis, Pointer Finger axis.
At the moment it only allows for a total of 8 axis, so this mean that 3 axis at any one time have to be sacrificed. For example, above i have sacrificed the last 3 finger axis.
If you wish to use as many fingers as possible, read [roid|here].
