for $75, ill send him my chatpad. i have no clue how to program and i dont have an xbox360... plus my union dues are due and they cost $76.... the money will go to good use!
omg - can someone just solve this already....
Yay! High-fives for everyone.
Ha, I can live with that.
I have no idea how this is coming along, so I thought I'd give contributing a very rudimentary shot...
Maybe these links could be useful? If the info found at these pages is old news then this post is useless, but I figured it couldn't hurt to try to help.
These are step-by-step photos of a chatpad that one person took apart completely.
This thread on another forum seems to have determined that the "brains" behind the Chatpad is a PIC16F883 Microchip. Of course, that thread doesn't appear to have the same goal in mind as we do, but the info might apply nonetheless.
Also, I made a post linking to this topic over on TheGreenButton about this thread. It's a web site devoted to Windows Media Center and customizing it. By itself, a wireless 360 controller (along with the USB wireless receiver) can be programmed to control a PC with mouse movement, click/double click/right click/etc., and a lot of other functions. The only thing that prevents this from being a feasible option is the lack of keyboard input. If one could attach a Chatpad and use it on Windows... It would be the ideal controls.
That is all.
