NAME
joy – joystick input for games

SYNOPSIS
joy [ player ]

DESCRIPTION
Joy interprets input from a USB joystick device (see nusb(4)) to pass it on to a console emulator as a string of controller keys which are pressed down.

The optional player argument specifies a player number for those emulators that support it. It should be an integer equal to 1 or greater. Currently only players 1 and 2 are supported.

Note that each USB controller has its own mappings and the program may have to be modified to use its own key ids.

EXAMPLES
Use USB device 10 as a joystick for the player number 1's controller with the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) emulator:
% nusb/joy /dev/usb/ep10.0 | joy 1 | games/nes –a rom.nes
