Memorize

Hi

Sorry for the bad English, hope you understand what I'm after.

I've been searching the site for a kit that memorizes.

Lets say you got 12 different buttons and 3 tactical buttons, when I push First Tactical for, lets say 3 sec. it goes into "write" mode, and now I make a combination of pushes on the 12 buttons, when done press the tactical again and now the combination is stored.

And repeat with the remaining two tactical.

Now I got 3 Tactical with different press Combo's. 

When I'm in need of combo N#1 I just press the Tactical N#1 and it does the combo I've saved before.

And so one if I'm in need of saved Combo's on N#2 and N#3.

There should be a LED that tells me when I'm in "write" mode.

Hope its not to confusing to understand, Its for my disabled little brother and are gonna be a great help for him and us.

I will go in to further details if anybody has an idea on how to realize the setup

Tnx in advance

Best Regards

you might find a circuit that uses a microcontroller, like an Arduino or a PIC... I will look around. Din engelska är helt ok, Henrik!

Hej

Tusinde tak. :o)

We might have to keep it in English I guess, since I wrote the question in here. Your on the right path with the keystroke. I just want to "push one Tactile hooked to a Chip, Chip goes into Write mode, Then I can hit different keys, lets say "square, triangle, square, circle, square", Hit the Tactile again and the chip closes Write mode, Then when I need the combo, I just press the Tactile.

This wouldn't be a problem if it was on PC or Mac, cause I could just use a Macro Recorder, but this is from a PS3 controller. I wanna put in a Tactile to make it possible, I know how to connect the chip on the ps3 controller board, I just dont know how to write the code to make the chip do what i want.

He plays PS3, and sometimes he plays some games that requires some difficult combinations of button press. This requires that we help him a lot cause he loves hes video games. So I wanted to implant some extra buttons on the back, and learn them a combo, so every time he presses one of the tacs, it preforms the combo we taught it. But it should be acceptable to learning new combos when we press down a tac for 3 sec. or more cause the HUGE selection of games he plays.

So I need to Press a homemade button on the back soldered to a chip thats connected to the 12 original buttons on the ps3 controller.

So if I press the tactical button for x sec., it goes into learning mode, then I press, "red, red, green, blue, red etc." and press it again to "close learning" mode.

Then press the tactical button once, and it does what it's been programmed to.

Hope I dont confuse you guys and im really happy for all the answers you guys give and thanks to them who replies and gives suggestions.
Something like this ? I googled arduino keystroke sequencer.

I am not sure if you mean Tactical or combos in a "gameplay control" button sense or it means one-touch-press and one-touch-press-triggering off a bunch of commands.

Either way, there are programmable keyboards or you can even find free utilities to remap a computer keyboard and assign "hotkeys" which issue a whole chain of commands whatever your program it for.

If you can tell us what you are controlling or what kind of input you need if for, I'm sure people can guide you to remapping your keyboard, hack a remote usb keyboard, or build an array of buttons with a microprocessor or hack a current game controller to fit the task. Good luck.

Hi

First off, tnx for the fast reply, very kind of you.

Hope this makes it a bit easier to solve the problem.

I've seen that one, but thats not what I'm looking for.

Thats about remapping the keys. Hes a great man Hazer and done a lot of good things.

But I need to Press a homemade button on the back soldered to a chip thats connected to the 12 original buttons on the ps3 controller.

So if I press the tactical button, it goes into learning mode, then I press, "red, red, green, blue, red etc." and press it again to "close learning" mode.

http://blog.gimx.fr/ Keep looking for "ps3 macro controllers".

Well just found out that it is done for Xbox360
Its pretty much what I need, but just for the wrong consol.

Well not that fancy with the program and all, just the tactile button feat,

Wish there was some kind of score system, i would give you top score for kindness in answering the best you could. Tnx a lot for your time, I will go back to search mode and see if i can find alt. ways to do it, cause i've searched for 9 hours today on "ps3 macro controllers" and got close but not enough.

Tnx for your time Caitlinsdad.
