Hi Corey,

Welcome to the group! It's brilliant to hear from more and more people with 
an interest in accessible gaming. I enjoyed looking through your site.

You may be interested in this link: http://kaf.tri6.net/trackmapper/  - 
Which enables Natural Point "Track IR" head trackers to play keyboard based 
games (http://www.naturalpoint.com/) head trackers to play keyboard based 
games. Works well with MAME. Imagine playing Pac-Man with the cursor keys - 
these can fairly easily be remapped to head positions (UP, DOWN, LEFT, 
RIGHT). By slowing the game down 
(http://www.oneswitch.org.uk/4/games/MAME.htm) you can make the game more of 
a possibility.

On an even simpler basis - all the single switch games on my web-site can be 
played with the head tracker. This link 
(http://www.oneswitch.org.uk/IMAGES/ARTICLES/cgeuk2005/Zoe-Golf.jpg)  is of 
a girl playing a one button golf game by nodding her head.

Wondering if there is anything similar for your more advanced SMART Nav? Are 
you able to play keyboard games with this version?

All the best,

Barrie

Hello all,

I have been on this list awhile now and have never posted. I have Duchenne 
Muscular Dystrophy and I am the creator of a website for gamers with 
disabilities called D-GAMER, the address is http://d-gamer.com. It has been 
around for sometime but has never taken off much. I took it down for maybe a 
year and a half, mainly because I didn't like the design and at the time it 
was hard finding information on accessible gaming. It is in kind of in a 
blog format and has some reviews. Eventually it will be packed full of 
information.

I would love for you all to check it out. I highly respect your opinion and 
feedback, so please let me know what you think. Also, if you would like to 
submit any news or anything else there is a place for that.

Thank you very much and I hope to hear from you.

Corey 'Dis' Krull
D-GAMER

I will be posting my thoughts here more often.
