Hi everyone, my names Josh and this is my first post. There is a football (soccer for Americans) game called fifa 13 on the xbox360 that you may of heard of, in this game you can do skills where you move the joysticks around and it does a skill. The problem is that the joysticks work by having 2 potentiometers to control this and as far as i know i cant control resistance with an arduino. I want to make a controller that has a standalone chip(maybe aTtiny85) to press various buttons and/or move the joystick to make the player do a skill. I came across 2 things, the first one is thebenheckshow where he does similar what i want to do but he only uses the buttons, not the analog joysticks. Here is the link:
The second thing is i was searching and found some digital potentiometers and was wondering if anyone knew how to use them with an aTmel chip:http://uk.farnell.com/analog-devices/ad5228bujz50-r2/digipot-5bit-up-down-50k-smd-5228/dp/1078390
This is an xbox 360 joystick
So basically im saying can i use digipots instead of analog pots?
