    I worked a good bit over the holiday weekend, but unfortunately my normal work week is starting. The good news/bad news is that I decided to do things "right" and go ahead by making virtual keyboard/mouse HID devices. This should work in all situations, hopefully even when there is not a normal keyboard attached (which I imagine might be the situation in a car computer). The downside of that is that it is taking me a few extra days to learn how to make such devices, and right now I don't have all of the devices showing up properly in device manager. Once I get them working properly, I can go back to finishing off the actual chatpad functionality.

    The good news is that the chatpad kernel driver shouldn't need changed much at all. I still need to add a couple of features in there but it's not much of a code change.

    Sorry about the delay, as always.

    It'll stay as a perfectly functional XBox 360 controller (which I believe also has HID subdevices). This would just be in addition to it.

    Is it possible to make it optional to make all the buttons on the keyboard unsigned? So that you can map them on your own in Xpadder ore other such program.

    I will try to make them configurable. To save time, I am planning on just making a text file where you could do something kind of like this:

    CHATPAD_KEY_H REAL_KEY_Q

    If you wanted an H on the chatpad to type a Q on your computer for some odd reason. Of course it would need to be fancier than that, and support shift, and the orange/green modes. And presumably I might have extra functions that you could map the keys to instead of just typing a letter. I want to get something released before too long though, so I hope you will forgive me if I save some features like that until AFTER the initial release. Maybe I will just include simple configuration stuff to start with and then work on making it better.

    If people still want to hear the boring progress updates: I found a HID example and got a virtual HID keyboard to show up tonight. Tomorrow I hope to make it actually work like a keyboard. Then I need to do the same to a mouse, and hook those back into my original chatpad code.
