Is it posible to bind a joystick button with 'repeating' a button press?
I have used joy2key for auto repeating keys strokes, but openmsx won't handle that well.

please help!

Check the OpenMSX Manual : http://openmsx.org/manual/commands.html#bind

Look for the -repeat command

I realize this thread is already a year old, but it is the first hit at DuckDuckGo.

Anyway. The openMSX manual isn't clear on how to use -repeat to autofire a joystick button. I understand I have to use bind with an event and a command. So, something like

bind "joy1 button1 down" type "hello"

will output hello to my screen. But what would be the command to fire button 1 on joystick 1? I tried typing a space, but that results in "warning: Error executing hot key command: Syntax error" Question

Do you want to control the joystick fire button or do you want to let it press the space bar?
For the latter, use the keymatrixdown/up command.

For the former, I'm not sure. Is this possible, Wouter?
