My DOS USB Gamepad Project

The section is dedicated to my quest to get my Logitech Precision Gamepad working, in DOS. Hopefully this information will be useful in helping someone else with one of their projects.

I started this project, for four reasons:

While DOS has no built-in USB stack, I did manage to find a hardware device that has one built-in. For this project I used the VDIP2 module. Devices like this one are marketed towards people that are looking for a simple way to add USB support to their microcontroller projects. I figured that if they're able to get one of these working with a microcontroller, I should be able to get one of these to talk to a PC.
