6 Button Gamepads

I have a Phase 9 Phantom 2 6 button gamepad, but Win95 only supports up to 4 buttons. I have tried JoyEmu (which basically binds keystrokes to buttons on the pad) but this is not compatible with my bios. Is there any other way?
Microsoft seems to have no problems in supporting 10 buttons on their sidewinder, so why not just 6??

Were there any driver disks with your gamepad?

Microsoft sidewinder gamepads have their drivers which are installed on Win95 before you can use the pad.

yeah i know, there were no drivers with my pad, ideally i would like to find some drivers that support 6 buttons that work in win95

Some of the game pad's will have 6 buttons, but only allow 4 buttons at a time.  Check to see if your gamepad has a switch that changes the 4 buttons that you use.  I had one that was the same way.     Jade

Yeah i already figured that one out, using the other two buttons as a rudder/throttle. Not good for games like MK4 tho.
