The Joystick mod allows you to mount a joystick on the top of the gearbox that will act as both a joystick, and a mouse! The joystick is mounted on the port provided for the pedals. It is therefore impossible to use this mod with the pedals.
Pressing the joystick is equivalent to a left click. Holding it down for a long time switches the mouse mod to the joystick mod (directional arrows) and vice versa.

3) 3D files
The files are on the google Drive.
4) The code
The mod requires at least the 2.52 code.

Be careful, as soon as the mod is activated, the joystick behaves like a mouse. If there is a problem on the assembly, you may have difficulties to use your mouse (cursor systematically goes to the left for example). Engaging the sixth gear disable the mouse behaviour, so if anything goes wrong, engage the 6th.
