Exclamation XPadder, now your game pad works with everything

I see this little proggie is still one the of most unknown little gems in the net.
Personally I've no idea why, so, here's the thread.

You will find it @ XPadder.com

Basically, what XPadder does can be simply described as: "it simulates keypresses and mouse movements using a gamepad"
So, technically, I dare to say you can play *ANYTHING* using your gamepad, as long as the assigned keys don't cause a conflict with something else.

Technically (again) methinks this should easly work with those cool flash games even!

Personally, I also use it as a remote, when pluging in a psx joypad and sitting comfortably on me sofa watching movies.

A few example screenies from GooglePics:

Biiiiiig thanks Shoonay
I'm looking for such a tool for some time now (yeah I was a bit lazy searching for it ). There are so many small games that have only keyboard controls and that simply sucks. Now all these games can be can be played with a joypad! For example Self destruct (Hi Graham ).

Yeah it's great alright, I've been using it for awhile.
However I like this even better as this allows mouse controls to be used with gamepad.

I'm (re)playing Rune again with my XBOX Controller S and it fu***** rocks.
It works with any controller, not just XBOX controllers.

If I understand that correctly - so does xpadder.

didn't knew about those others, but I'm afraid they're long forgotten while xpadder is still in development.
the 5.2 version is from... today
and i've got a felling they would not work on me viśta x64...

I use Joytokey since years, awesome for standard joypads. But it doesn't work decent enough with various Analogue stick pads.
