MAH BOI - a keyboard interface to use with CD-I emulator

Post by dem0 » Fri Aug 03, 2012 2:22 pm

As many probably have noticed, playing action games like Hotel Mario or Zeldas with CD-I emu tends to be a pain in the ass because of the lack of keyboard control.
Controlling those with mouse is extremely unpleasant if not practically impossible.

So, since I found no cure for this problem, I developed quickly a program that allows you to play games (currently templates exists only for Hotel Mario and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon and Link: Faces of Evil) with your keyboard like any other game.

The program emulates mouse movement based on the pressed keys and makes the gameplay much more pleasant. The program is still pretty buggy and lacks templates, but I'm going to develop it further.

Some clip of the tool (doesn't show much)

Notice! To hide the twitching mouse out of your way in the emulator, I recommend a program called "nomousy".

MAH BOI is for Windows only!

Feedback is appreciated! :D
