Hey ho everyone. I have done some searching on this board about N64 posts and I have some questions. I am totally new to this world and know knew nothing about it until yesterday when I watched so videos.
My ultimate goal is to do this, only with my N64 to my Android:
I don't own a Arduino yet, so before I get one and gut out my machine, I have some questions.
- I read this tutorial here and learned about how to hook it up to the Arduino:
I get that you have to plug in two analog inputs and one digital input. My question is can I plug in two controllers at once. Because there are plenty of analog and digital inputs to what I understand. Is there more than one ground input on one ArduinoUNO, basically.
- If that can work, then how about this. Lets say I open my N64 and cut off the controller port thats connected to the motherboard. Here is what the chip looks like:
So what if I solder wires to those three circuits, then stick the end of those wires into the Arduino? That way I can keep the ports where they are and I won't have to open an empty N64 shell to plug in a controller.
I need to tackle coding and connecting to a bluesmirf next, but I'll cross that bridge when I get there. Any help would be gratefully appreceated. Thanks in advance guys.
