Trying to get my electronical and soldering skills up.

So converting a nes controller to USB for use with emulators.

Parts: Nes controller Old USB keyboard Tact-switches Hot gleu

Tools: Philips head screwdriver Hot glue gun Soldering iron And some thinking

Building: stripping the old keyboard for the controller, dremel a part out of the nes circuit board so the controller and the board fit in the housing of the nes controller

after fucking up the nes board Pokon printed the board on the 3d printer just to hold the buttons, after fucking up the keyboard controller smokey asked me if it wasnt simpeler to just make a usb controller out of scratch. .... it is simples but i dont know nothing about coding so from now on Smokey helps me with the everything.

Well after SmokeyD went to the other side of the world i was stuck so i switched the project with an teensy 2.0 that buzz had in reserve. I got the code for the keyboard layout from fiermans Giant nes project, after usig my very noobish soldering skills the board is working and
