Hello you all!I’m a newbbie with Arduino but I love it. I wonder if and how it should be possible to use Arduino to control simulation games such as MS Train Simulator or similar. This game receives commands from keys (or combination of them) from the computer keyboard. I’d like to connect to Arduino buttons and potentiometer and by using appropriate code ask Arduino to convert them into keyboard format and send to a computer Usb port (as it was a secondary keyboard or a joystick).
In commerce there are specialized “controllers” or joystick containing buttons and cursors you can use to play the game, it’s enough to tell the controller configuration which keystroke emulate when pressed. My idea would be to create this controller by using Arduino a code and a custom card with buttons switches and potentiometer.
Does anybody feel it would be possible ? and in case it was, has anybody any suggestion ?
Many thanks in advance !
