Control Pendant for Mach3

I found a USB Game Controller with 10 buttons and 2 axis joystick. It seems to be suitable to be used with Mach3. However, due to the need to start thru Keygrabber, I decided not use it.

The game controller is now being hacked and the joystick is removed. Miniature switches will be added later and the MPG is mounted to replace the joystick.

I had a hard time figuring out the parallel port address since the "Resources" tab is missing from the LPT2 "properties". I finally found it in the Multifunction Controllers properties.
I hook up the MPG and it works!
