This is the first time I'm looking for help in a message list, and I'm surprised that it really works and there are people who really wanna help.
So, this is the problem:
For those who know'the game, I'm developing a Dance Dance Revolution Pad for home use. I'm using the epsxe emulator, that emulates with perfection the 3rd edition.
But for do it, I've developed a pad (obvious) and a soft, that should return keystrokes to windows, simulating the keyboard action i would do (epsxe does not use the plug-in system for input).
I'm using the parallel port to communicate with the pad, and its working fine. Now I must turn the data chance on the port in KeyDown and KeyUp events to the proper key, so the emulator can catch it (hope it don't use a low level input handler).
Resuming: how i force a keystroke back to windows, so any other appication (such notepad, word, or the emulator) can catch it?
I've head about VKD_Force_Keys and VKD_API_Force_key functions, but it only can be used in a VxD, and I'm don't know how to make one (and it seems to hard).
I can code anything for DOS, but for windows...
That's all that's missing to finish it. Plz, any help wold be of great value.
At time, forgive my bad english. I'm brasilian and it's not my country language.
