Hi there folks.
I’m pretty new to Arduino use but I’ve managed to get a couple of previous projects working with no real trouble following some tutorials, I think I need some help with this one though...
I’m in the process of making an arcade machine as an installation for an art submission at university.
The general idea is that a player can put a coin in and play for a certain amount of time - which is fine.
The panel uses an Arduino micro to interpret player control (from a modified game pad to a modified gameboy - code here NES-controller.ino · GitHub) and the coin insert is using an Arduino Uno (using this code http://www.github.com/hxlnt/arduino-coin-acceptor/)
Is it feasible to connect the uno to the game pad button layout and have the code lock the controls when the timer runs out? Going one step further, would it be possible to have it soft reset, in the gameboy this is a button combination so press 4 buttons at once, and then lock the buttons?
Thanks for your help in advance!
