I have a usb to PS2 adaptor so that I can use my Playstation 2 game pads on my PC. This is great for Emulation but I have always had trouble getting it to work for PC games. Last night I found a program called Total Game Control (http://www.digitaltransforms.com/) that lets you map keyboard and mouse commands to a joystick or gamepad. It will even let you map the mouse movement to an analog stick. It was a little hard to get setup at first, but once I figured it out it was a breeze. So far I have only tested it with Max Payne 2 and Guild Wars and it works really good. Unfourtunately the demo version will change your controller profile on you after about 10 minutes so it's something you have to pay for if you want to use it. I'll continue to mess with it and post any problems I find. For me this was a HTPC dream come true as I don't really care for using a wireless keyboard and mouse while sitting in my lazy-boy.
