ok, so a little bit of backstory, i have absolutely no knowledge of arduino's accept for a few rgb tutorials i have watched.
ok, so on to the project i have in my head, im building an arcade cabinet, and i would really like to have RGB strips running around the outline of it. i want these RGB strips to change to certain colors based on the button presses of a game controller.
im not good at explaining things, the arcade cabinet is going to run on windows, with Xinput controllers.
so i guess the real question would be, is their a way for the Arduino to pick up the keypresses from the controller and use that to power leds?
the cabinet is going to have guitar hero, the guitar in windows is an Xinput device, and i want to be able to have the RGB strips match the color of the button im holding on the guitar.
im not good at getting my thoughts across into words, i know what i want to do, i just dont know how to properly write it so that people can understand.
please help me or point me in the right direction, or atleast tell me if its not feasible.
