Does anybody have any ideas on how I could connect an C64/Atari
joystick to insert keystrokes into the IBM keyboard I/O?

I was thinking of putting a PIC in series with the keyboard and the
motherboard.

Don't know how to do it all but these should help somewhat;  the
resources I've found in my searches on my current project are:

 Steve's PC Keyboard Info at
http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/steve_lawther/keybinfo.htm, has
good links & info

 PIC Page, at http://www.arne.si/~mauricio/PIC.HTM, has software for
emulating both the AT Keyboard & the AT end of things, this might be
really handy for you!

 Fil's FAQ-Link-In Corner has the PC Keyboard FAQ v 1.00 at
http://www.arne.si/~mauricio/Kbdfaq.htm (May be a newer version out
there?)

 Interfacing the PC's keyboard, at
http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Bay/8302/keybrd.htm, Motorola
68HC705 code on there for some of this, links to his Interfacing the PC
page (up one level - good links on other pieces of the puzzle.)

 Omar Jenkins is working on a one-handed chording keyboard, at
http://www.mbhs.edu/~ojenkins/wearable/fiddler.html

 Tim & I are working on a one-handed chording keyboard, I'll post my
question on a separate post <G>  And we'll have a web page up soon as
Tim gets to it (I'm behind on my part, so I'm not griping!)  We'll
publish & GPL (or something close to that) our design once we get there,
we just changed from a 16F84 to a 16C66 PIC design so I'm re-doing some
design work here <G>

 (And the girlfriend gets seizures from fireworks, it's Independence
day, so I get to listen hard for problems from M-80's going off, she's
doing OK though mostly!  She loves fireworks, -GO FIGURE- <VBG>, so do
I)

Thrustmaster joysticks do just that.

The thrustmaster goes between the keyboard and the computer.

That way each key on the joystick can be programmed to represent a key or

set of keystrokes that would have been typed on the key board.

I don't know if this gives you any ideas or not.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Bye for now

Thrustmaster WCS does that, the joystick does not. the joystick has
standard analog 100K pots and 4 buttons. the other buttons are matrixed on
the 4 button inputs. now the add-on  WCS (Weapon throttle) plugs into the
keyboard and allows re-programming of buttons on the joystick and it's
buttons. The use a special group of PIC's and PAL's with eeproms to
perform these functions and allow uploading from the keymap tables.

Hey Matt !  You can't do this !  That's _my_ idea ;-)

Yes, I'm slowly gathering information about the Keyboard protocol.  But the
fact that I want the keyboard _and_ the joystick functioning together
(_and_ using a handy,but slow PIC, the 16C84) keeps me thinking ....
