Joysticker is a Lua-scriptable joystick to keyboard mapper that lets you use your joystick for games that don't support one. It can be used to map multiple joysticks (up to 16) to the keyboard. Operation is controlled by simple Lua scripts that tell the program which buttons/inputs to map to which keys.
