    Joystick newbie

    Hi I'm new to this but I was looking through the forum and saw a couple things but it was way over my head.

    Well what I would like to do is use all the analog inputs on a teensy 3.0
    And I want to put potentiometers on all 14
    I would like it to go through the joysticks but I'm only able to use like 6 potentiometers.
    How would I code the teensyduino to use them all through serial?

    Just to give you a brief overview of what I'm doing.
    The software I'm using allows me to use joysticks and assign the output
    To whatever I need. But the device must be already a joystick.

    I used the basic teensy/USB-joystick-basic code to start it out.

    Thanks

    Yes, only 6 axes are currently supported. Someday more might be supported. Please subscribe to this thread if you're interested:

    http://forum.pjrc.com/threads/23681-Many-axis-joystick

    Please post any conversation about many-axis joystick features on that thread. I will see it there when I work on this feature, but I won't find your comments if you write them here.

    Well, there are many possible ways. For example:

    Code:
    void loop() {
      for (int i=0; i<14; i++) {
        Serial.print(analogRead(i));
        Serial.print(",");
      }
      Serial.println();
      delay(250);
    }
    Open the serial monitor window to see the results.

    Thank you so much for the information. Is that code a complete code or would I add it to my code? And would windows 7 see that code and know its a joystick?

    You'll need to add a setup() function. See any of the examples in Arduino. File > Examples menu.

    No. You asked about Serial in that case. That code will print the info to the serial monitor.
