QuickACCESS can turn a press of the Enter key or the Spacebar into a mouse click. Getting a joypad/joystick to do something similar isn't too hard.

It depends on the kind of joystick you are using and the way the buttons are exposed by the driver.



AutoHotKey has great support for redirecting input.


Here is another link of examples:


So to simply send a spacebar or a return key in an AutoHotKey script, you put the following:

Joy1::Send {Enter}
Joy2::Send {space}
