Well my laptop has a Nintendo DS emulator, which of course I can play NDS games in with the keyboard but the key mappings are limited to only A-Z and arrow keys.

There is an option to enable a joystick.. which I don't have.

I have a second keyboard lying around which I can connect.. but I do not want Windows to detect it as a keyboard but as a Joystick.

How do I trick windows into thinking I'm connecting a 115 button joystick?

It's a usb keyboard so I think it's possible? (and still be able to use my laptops' keyboard normally)

why not just buy a cheap USB joystick or gamepad? – Keltari Jan 27 '13 at 3:30
yeah I can go and buy one but would be interesting if this is possible – user144773 Jan 27 '13 at 12:05
