I've created a mod allowing you to control Minecraft with a joypad. It works both in SSP and SMP, and you can use it while simultaneously controlling regular MC with keyboard + mouse, allowing for something like split screen. You can hook up multiple joypads, as many as your PC can handle .

For now it supports basic controls, menu navigation and inventory screens.
Please note that this is different than the joy2key or xpadder method, as it allows you to control multiple Minecraft windows at a time (each with one joypad). Joy2key and xpadder only emulate keyboard and mouse.
Version 0.15.1 is out.
-[fix] not being able to move the camera without window focus

Default config should be suitable for wired XBox 360 Joypad and a Logitech Chillstream
If you wan't to customize it you can do it by visiting the game options.
The only thing you might have to edit by hand are the deadzones. You can change them by opening the file named "options.txt" located besides your screenshot directory. Then you find the lines containing the the word "axis". Like for example:
joy_joy.cameraX+:axis/3/0.9/0.05Deadzone is the last value. Change it to somting higer, like 0.15 or 0.25 and save the file. Start the Minecraft and see if it's better now.
If you have some time, writing a tutorial for the newbies about using the mod would be very helpful. I'll link to it or include it in the mod package and give you the full credit. Bonus points for Linux and Mac instructions, too.
Also, youtube videos about the general mod installation and troubleshooting are deeply appreciated.
I'd like to thank everyone who contributed to the mod success, especially the selfless folks on the forums who provided others with the ton of support and information.
Any feedback appreciated!
