Ok I’m new at all this so I’ll tell you want I want to accomplish.
I need 2 joystick button to be read as a generic USB controller for the PC.
More specifically I’m adding two reed switches to an Eaton Fuller 18 Speed Transmission Shift Knob made for real Semi trucks and mounting it to my Thrustmaster TH8A shifter to simulate the range and splitter button in the real shifter on the game “American Truck Simulator”
I was able to successfully solder the switches to a torn apart Logitech Extreme 3D Pro joystick and make it work.
I want a small usb controller generic or if I can name it “Eaton Fuller Controller” when plugged in that would be cool but if that too hard I dont care if it says Generic USB And that will fit into the shifter knob…
So far I’m thinking the Adafruit Trinket, but even that has more than I need. I just need 2 digital inputs.
I started playing with fritzing and would be cool if I could design my own board but I don’t know what processor and other things a controller needs to function. Also The code would be really simple i assume but I cant even manage that.
Heres a link to my Kickstarter video so maybe if I’m not being clear on what I’m needing it might help.
