The QuickJoy Foot Pedal SV-129 is a digital joystick for various systems. This foot pedal can take over 3 functions of a joystick. Each pedal on the controller is micro-switched. Two footrests can be folded under.
How It Works
The foot pedal has two cables coming out of the back of it. One of the cables connects to the joystick port on the computer and the other is for plugging your joystick into. There is a bank of five switches that let you select which function of the joystick the individual pedals take over (up, down, left, right or fire). For example, if you game uses forward and backwards for accelerate and brake and the fire but to change gear you can set the switches to allow one pedal for accelerate, one pedal for brake and one for changing gear. Just like driving a car. You would then just use the joystick to steer left and right. Each pedal can be assigned any of the joysticks functions so you can set them up how it would suit you the best. You can assign none, one, two or all of the pedals. So again you could use the joystick for movement but assign one of the pedals to the fire button for kicking a ball in a football game.
