Arduino Nes controller, Please Help!

So i came across this project i wanted to do, but i know nothing about code and im getting a bunch to errors. heres the original link
(i have Leonardo and im using 1.0.3)

And heres the code for the arduino

const int latch = 2;
const int clock = 3;
const int data  = 4;

#define latchlow digitalWrite(latch, LOW)
#define latchhigh digitalWrite(latch, HIGH)
#define clocklow digitalWrite(clock, LOW)
#define clockhigh digitalWrite(clock, HIGH)
#define dataread digitalRead(data)
#define wait delayMicroseconds(200)

byte output;

void setup() {
	Serial.begin(9600);
	pinMode(latch, OUTPUT);
        pinMode(clock, OUTPUT);
        pinMode(data, INPUT);
}

void loop() {
  output = 0;
  ReadNESjoy();
  Serial.print(output, BYTE);
}


void ReadNESjoy() {
  latchlow;
  clocklow;
  latchhigh;
  wait;
  latchlow;
  for (int i = 0; i < 8; i++) {
     clockhigh;
     wait;
     output += dataread * (1 << i);
     clocklow;
     wait;
  }
}

It says “BYTE” is no longer used

And heres the code for Processing, idk what it is. (first time using arduino, or any code for that matter and yes i did look around to find any solutions… none)

import processing.serial.*;
import java.awt.*;

Serial arduino;

Robot VKey;

PImage bgImage;

char recvout;
char prevout;
char deltaout;

void setup() {
  size(434,180);
  frameRate(30);
  println(Serial.list());
  arduino = new Serial(this, Serial.list()[1], 9600); // ATTENTION!!!
  bgImage = loadImage("NEScontroller.jpg");
  try
  {
    VKey = new Robot();
  }
  catch(AWTException a){}
  prevout = 0;
}

void draw() {
  if (bgImage != null) { background(bgImage); }
  fill(255, 255, 0);
  serialRead();
  deltaout = (char)((int)recvout ^ (int)prevout);
  emulateKeyboard();
  prevout = recvout;
}

void serialRead() {
  while (arduino.available() > 0) {
    recvout = arduino.readChar();
  }
}

void emulateKeyboard() {
  if ((deltaout & 1  ) == 1  ) { if ((recvout & 1  ) == 1  ) {VKey.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_L);} else {VKey.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_L);}}
  if ((deltaout & 2  ) == 2  ) { if ((recvout & 2  ) == 2  ) {VKey.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_K);} else {VKey.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_K);}}
  if ((deltaout & 4  ) == 4  ) { if ((recvout & 4  ) == 4  ) {VKey.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_G);} else {VKey.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_G);}}
  if ((deltaout & 8  ) == 8  ) { if ((recvout & 8  ) == 8  ) {VKey.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_H);} else {VKey.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_H);}}
  if ((deltaout & 16 ) == 16 ) { if ((recvout & 16 ) == 16 ) {VKey.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_W);} else {VKey.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_W);}}
  if ((deltaout & 32 ) == 32 ) { if ((recvout & 32 ) == 32 ) {VKey.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_S);} else {VKey.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_S);}}
  if ((deltaout & 64 ) == 64 ) { if ((recvout & 64 ) == 64 ) {VKey.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_A);} else {VKey.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_A);}}
  if ((deltaout & 128) == 128) { if ((recvout & 128) == 128) {VKey.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_D);} else {VKey.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_D);}}
}

It says “import” is not used or something like that

Here are the files where i got the code from
http://www.instructables.com/files/orig/F2U/W6FP/GVXHOG2Y/F2UW6FPGVXHOG2Y.zip

if you could help me, i would highly appreciate it
thanks to anyone who answers :smiley:

it says ‘import’ does not name a type

not used or something like that

You're not going to get many responses to a question something like that

JimboZA:

You're not going to get many responses to a question something like that

It says exactly

'import' does not name a type

Are you trying to compile the Processing sketch in the Arduino IDE? That's exactly the error I get when I try that.

A visit to http://processing.org is in your future.

Please do not cross-post. This wastes time and resources as people attempt to answer your question on multiple threads.

D: sorry, i wasnt getting any responses so i expanded my search :( forgive me

also, how do i fix the "BYTE" problem?(i have no clue as to what im doing)

PaulS: Are you trying to compile the Processing sketch in the Arduino IDE? That's exactly the error I get when I try that.

I downloaded it and rand the thing through processing, but now i get

cannot find anything named "KeyEvent.VK_L"

so i have this old peice of code here, and i get an error saying “The ‘BYTE’ keyword is no longer supported” so what do i use instead? please help!

const int latch = 2;
const int clock = 3;
const int data  = 4;

#define latchlow digitalWrite(latch, LOW)
#define latchhigh digitalWrite(latch, HIGH)
#define clocklow digitalWrite(clock, LOW)
#define clockhigh digitalWrite(clock, HIGH)
#define dataread digitalRead(data)
#define wait delayMicroseconds(200)

byte output;

void setup() {
	Serial.begin(9600);
	pinMode(latch, OUTPUT);
        pinMode(clock, OUTPUT);
        pinMode(data, INPUT);
}

void loop() {
  output = 0;
  ReadNESjoy();
  Serial.print(output, BYTE);
}


void ReadNESjoy() {
  latchlow;
  clocklow;
  latchhigh;
  wait;
  latchlow;
  for (int i = 0; i < 8; i++) {
     clockhigh;
     wait;
     output += dataread * (1 << i);
     clocklow;
     wait;
  }
}

Look up "Serial.write".

i did look it up, telling me "look up serial.write" doesnt tell me anything. i think as a moderator you could help? jeeze

and i get an answer already? so i can move on with my life? seriously why do i have to wait so long for a legit response?

Four minutes to a bump post?

"look up serial.write" doesnt tell me anything.

How am I supposed to know that?

i think as a moderator you could help?

I saved you the embarrassment of having your cross-posting reported as a violation of forum rules, didn't I?

... talk about policing, is this where i come to get help? or is it a place for forum moderators to do their job?

I'm a janitor, not a policeman.

I clean up after untidy posters.

my post was tidy, till you guys messed it up, and how about you answer my problem so you can stop "cleaning up" the post. instead of wasting time telling me that my post is messy, invest the time into helping someone? get on my level

{SIGH}

Serial.print(output, BYTE);
Serial.write (output);

AWOL:
{SIGH}

Serial.print(output, BYTE);
Serial.write (output);

cmon im not that stupid. i already tried that.

Must...resist...

Quite.

Here's the error message I got with that one change:

Binary sketch size: 2508 bytes (of a 14336 byte maximum)

Over to you.
