Does your finger get tired easily while playing video games? Ever wish you could pwn n00bs faster than the speed of light without ever breaking a sweat? This Instructable will show you how.
Step 1: What you need
Originally, I built this circuit specifically to make the Engineer/Scout's pistol in Team Fortress 2 more effective, but I've found uses outside of TF2 that increase productivity when I'm working, which makes this an incredibly useful mod.
This circuit can be added to any mouse. Yes, that's any mouse, following these simple steps.
For this Instructable, you will need:
- 555 Timer IC
- 8-Pin IC Socket (static discharge or heat from soldering tends to ruin 555s, so we use a socket)
- 10K Resistor
- 1K Resistor
- 4.7uF Capacitor (voltage doesn't matter, as long as it's 5V or over)
- Normally-Open Pushbutton Switch (any kind will do)
- Some wire
- Glue (to adhere the switch to the mouse, so hot glue or epoxy will work well for this)
- Soldering Iron
- Wire snips
- Fine-nosed Pliers
