If anyone out there is familiar with game console emulators, such as the N64 emulator where you can download the virtual console software then download ROM files and play them as N64 games on your computer, or even just PC games in general, you know that having a mouse usually just isnt as great as using a joystick. Depending on how much cash I have, I might buy the arduino joystick shield since it comes with everything nice and clean, but I was wondering how to use the analog values for the joystick for the mouse X & Y on my laptop, and use the buttons as keys on my keyboard. And I'd guess that theres some way you could do this all through the serial port from laptop to arduino, but I'm not quite sure how, any sources or info anyone could toss my way? I saw a video on Sparkfun website a few weeks ago of them using an accelerometer through an Xbee wireless setup to control the mouse X & Y, so I'd think using a joystick through an arduino on a serial port wouldn't be terribly difficult.
