These days I was playing Virtual On (PC version) because my boss found a copy. He also bought a model of one of the robots. I would like to have Virtual On origami but they are too expensive.
I had connected my Microsoft SideWinder Freestyle Pro gamepad but it cannot be recognized in the game. There is a software to customize the gamepad under XP environment - SideWinder Game Controller Software 4.0 (review of another M$ gamepad). However, it cannot be found on the Web (details).
On the web, I found several key mapping software. Although they don't help my situation, I would like to share them here:
Auto Hotkey - Remapping a Joystick to Keyboard or Mouse
PPJoy - Parallel Port Joystick Drivers
panuworld "joyadapter" XP
