JumpLab: a testbed for studying jump motion and scrolling algorithms of videogames

Joystick Settings

You can configure your joysticks from the "JOYSTICK" pane.

Selection

JumpLab supports USB-connected joystick devices. When JumpLab is launched with joystick(s) connected, the following screen will be displayed in the "JOYSTICK" tab.

Select a joystick from the list to use it. You can move the player character left and right with the lever or D-pad. In the current implementation, all major buttons are assigned to the jump buttons.
