I'd like to debug an adapter I'm working on but for this I'd need to view on screen the status, etc. of each pin in the game-port.

I managed to do this with the parallel port, which seemed quite hard in XP so I ended up using a dll that handles it on a driver-level. However, I couldn't find a similar library for the gameport.

Ideas?

I guess I could build a hardware based "debugger" (with LEDs for instance) but I'm trying to avoid this.

PS: How would one go about sending joystick input through code?. I guess this could only work if I went to the lowest level possible... Are there any debugging drivers for the gameport?. In an ideal world I would use USB and worry about other issues of my project, but USB interfaces aren't cheap where I'm from.

I forgot to mention, is there any application for displaying the pins from the parallel port? mine sucks badly (it's console based, not graphical at all due to my limited artistic skills)
