I found out yesterday that you can use the Centipede Shield in conjunction |
with the MUX Shield that SparkFun sells. The MUX Sheild provides 48
analog or digital inputs or digital outputs.
This means that with a standard Arduino board, you can have 128 purely
digital I/O lines and 48 analogs on one device. As soon as my Centipede
Shields arrive I'll take a picture of the stack so you can see what it
There's a virtual joystick out there called "PPJoy"
(http://ppjoy.blogspot.com/) that you can use to "emulate" joystick
devices. The machine will think it's talking to a standard joystick.
This is what JoyMapper uses
(http://www.assembla.com/wiki/show/lightningstools) for interfacing PHCC
hardware. Because the author was kind enough to create a .Net version of
the PPJoy SDK, it will be fairly easy to interface the serial protocol I
use with the Arduino with any simulator.
If there is enough interest in this kind of thing, I'd be happy to create
a simpits-arduino list.
