1  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: pushbuttons+74hc595(s)+arduino Micro = custom PC game Keypad on: May 25, 2014, 10:43:03 pm
Yes I know about the Keyboard Library. in those video he is shifting data in storing the data in the Uno then shifting it back out. what I need to know is how to work with the data once it is in the Arduino.

I press some combination of buttons > 74HC595 shifts this into the Arduino Micro > My code does some stuff (this "stuff" is what I need help with) > Arduino Micro tells PC the letters (this is where the Keyboard Library comes in) Q, S, H & J (for example) were pushed, or I'm holding a button that both "presses" the right mouse button and moves it vertically till button is released > PC and game respond accordingly.
2  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / pushbuttons+74hc595(s)+arduino Micro = custom PC game Keypad on: May 25, 2014, 09:07:46 pm
I want to build a custom Keypad for a PC game I play. I know I could hack a keyboard but I do not want to for two reasons, 1 I want to implement some mouse controls and 2 I want to be able to I made that including the code. my plan is to use an Arduino Micro and for the most part follow what is being said in these videos http://youtu.be/nXl4fb_LbcI and http://youtu.be/1Vb2BpxPnjU. however what he does not say and I need your help on is how do I make the Arduino Micro and 74hc595 tell the PC that the "_" key was pressed (where _ = whatever I assign that particular key in the Arduino to be).
3  Using Arduino / Interfacing w/ Software on the Computer / Interface Arduino UNO to Visual Basic 2008 on: January 19, 2013, 03:21:52 am
In time after I have learn more about the Arduino (purchesed my first one today and succefully completed this tutorial http://youtu.be/fCxzA9_kg6s). I want to develope software that goes on the Arduino using Arduino programing software, and software for a computer using Visual Basic 2008. My current thinking for some of my projects is to write a bunch of subroutines that will sit on the arduino. The Visual Basic software will call for a routine to be ran, the arduino will run that routine then report the resulats to the Visual Basic software.

My question is can some of you recommend some tutorials to get me started?

Thanks in advance
