Hi everyone. I got a game named crypt of th necrodancer on steam (its something like a dance game mixed with rpg) and i want to make a dance dance revolution like controller with my arduino uno is there a way to turn my arduino into a pc controller with 8 buttons?
i know nothing about arduino... but i know some basic programing.

Yes, it is possible with a USB shield, and knowledge of the protocol and commands.

The two simple ways are:

1) Emulate a PS/2 keyboard. If Dance dance whatever works with a keyboard then you need no special program on the computer side to read the Arduino input.

2) Emulate a USB keyboard. Same as above.

but those work with leonardo... i have just a uno r3

is there a way to use a aplication(like a java code or something) to read the text from the serial monitor and then register it as a keyboard imput?
I think it would be perfect but i dont quite understand arduino so far...

That's not correct. And if that's the level of attention you're going to give to answers posted to your questions then you should not bother posting questions at all.
