All you need is some sort of controller.

if you develop a game, you can have a controller as an option to a keyboard

I was working on a way to implement the "Joypad" option into sandbox anyway. Joytokey is a "cheats" way into things, and as most of you know, I prefer to code... although I will use it to give me some form of start point.
