What is PPJoy?
PPJoy is Windows device driver for digital joysticks (e.g. old Atari, Spectravideo, etc.), NES, SNES, Playstation and Sega pads connected to the parallel port. PPJoy supports Windows 98, Me, 2000 and XP. Please see the Interfacessection for a list of supported interfaces.
PPJoy was primarily designed for Windows 2000 and XP but will also work on Windows 98 and Me with a few restrictions.
Windows 98 and Me restrictions:
- PPJoy cannot properly share a Parallel Port with anything else. The PPJoy driver needs to be disabled (In Device Manager) when you need to use a port for something else.
- PPJoy setup cannot automatically install the required device drivers.
Note: The Windows 98/Me support is not as well tested as Windows 2000/XP. It should be a lot better than the support in previous version but there may still be issues. Use it at your own risk.
Windows NT 4 or Windows 95 is not supported.
