MAME Arcade Controller

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

Totally Awesome Sparkfun shaped arcade controllerJust wanted to put an update out about my game controller. The controller currently communicates over serial to the computer and requires a special driver for it to send key presses. Right now, I send key presses via a C API I access from python, but I am working on a new solution. I am trying to get V-USB to play nice with my Arduino Fio, which shouldn’t be a problem. Hopefully, once I have that figured out I’ll have a working wireless MAME Arcade controller and I can start working on a proper case for it instead of the cardboard box its in. Not that the Sparkfun box isn’t awesome, but it could due with a more comfortable shape than it has.
