CH is a brand name of joystick hardware. And the application in 
question, is their own in house controller which has the ability to map 
joystick switches to keystrokes via a HID compliant device, and it has 
the capability to create a virtual axis by performing math on 2 or more 
other axes.

I play a game that requires the 0 through 9 keys to change weapons. The 
game does not have the ability to map these to a joystick switch, 
itself. So I need the ability to do this through the above utility. I 
use peddles and I combine the left peddle axis with the right peddle 
axis to create one axis so I can use this to control forward and 
backward in the game.

The script that does this in the CH manager program, is:

    CMS.A1 = 128 + (JS2.A2/2) - (JS2.A1/2);

So obviously I use the CH manager program alot. It would really be nice 
if I could get it to work under wine, but I dont hold out any hope.
