Not a full one but I've cribbed this from a previous version:

4Noah Beta .1b © 2007 William Pilgrim
Created with Multimedia Fusion 2 (www.clickteam.com)


4Noah is a keyboard simulator that is designed to make platform videogames
playable through a switch. Your game must be set up beforehand for 4Noah to
function correctly.


Directional controls are mapped to the numeric keypad:
8 - Up
4 - Left
6 - Right
2 - Down

Action controls are mapped to ctrl and shift.
The optional autofire button is mapped to "z".
The <End> key will exit 4Noah.
The <Home> key will exit the joystick simulator and return to the menu
Pause "4Noah" using the 'P' key
Press "F1" to access a simplified "helper's" menu accessible using the
cursor keys.

If your game will not let you configure to these keys, you can try a program
called JoyToKey: http://www.oneswitch.org.uk/2/I/JoyToKey/JoyToKey.htm .

If your game runs too quickly, you might try the trial version of CPU Killer
to slow your game down:

Let's Play!
