    Teensey 3.0/MechWarrior Online Cockpit. Need help on pins.

    http://mwomercs.com/forums/topic/652...t-of-controls/

    I try to keep the above link updated with the games [MechWarrior Online] controls. Building my own cockpit now and this project has been on the back burner for 12 months. Below is some of the keys used in the game. Just like a keyboard all the buttons to be used are momentary on. I searched the forums for about 12 different keyword combinations and found similar posts but nothing dealing with the hardware side. Most were code issue questions.

    My question after looking at the included paperwork and others projects on this forum is:
    How the crud do i start locating what pins make what keystroke?

    I'm ok with a soldering gun. My Teensey 3.0 is pre-pinned. I just have no clue how to test the arduino usb or serial keyboard test code.

    Also a couple game functions will be 2 keys at once. Any ideas on how to trigger that with 1 button? 3 wires going to a ground and 2 pins?


    Thanks
    J.

    The below official image does not have all the controls.
    Missing that i know of in addition to whats listed are:

    Escape = exit game/mission option

    F9 on a Windows PC = Show ingame mini frame rate numbers on the left portion of the screen

    Left Control + mouse = cockpit view around your area. You can see working displays on missile load outs and functional heat sinks left

    Left Shift+F11 to toggle it on/off. = Removes/shows Hud display

    Tab key shows the roster and status.

    B key= Battle Map.

    What else is out there?


    Stonefalcon
    Holding down "Q" will display all your allies data as though you were mousing over them.

    If you search the web (not just this site) for 'hack usb keyboard' you'll find lots of tutorials on how to make custom controls out of keyboards. There are several different approaches to mapping the keys depending on how many keys you need and whether or not you care about things like being able to hold down several keys at once.
