Serial Communication – Video Game Controller

I made a jump button for Hip Hop Hero!


Pretty much just followed the tutorial at the ITP blog. One problem: holding the button down for too long crashes the USB port. I’m going to try adding a 10k ohm pull-up resistor to see if it helps.


Related, I saw that Sparkfun has some cool arcade buttons for sale. And a PS2-like joystick.


(Nerdy, middle school me just let out a high-pitched squeal of delight.)
