    Na the stick I'm refering to is the one found on any playstation 1 or 2 controler. I think when I can afford to buy a screen I will just hack apart an old mouse and add it to the mass of wires under the dash. I'm realy even reconsidering the mini keyboard I got as it dosnt have any ctr, del, tab, esc, or alt buttons :/

    I have to agree with the hacking apart of an old mouse, it would be quite small and won't really detract from the computing power like adding more progs would....and you could just run it back into the case as it'll be very small after a little hacking

    Ever think of using a PIC to drive whatever pad your using? I think when the mouse get's power, it's supposed to send a Ctrl-M character IIRC.

    I'v never thought about doing the pic thing for my controler as it uses a usb adaptor and I'm sure it would be hard to get the fetures of the mouse working good in a pic.

    Now a pic to emulate the mouse would be fine just has to be very small, very cheap, and I would need a very cheap way to program it.

    Pics run around 2-4 dollars USD, a decent programmer can be had for $10 to $15. You can get an Olimex development board for under 20 bucks. This is basically a complete board with power/timing and Max232 for communicating with a PC. If you get the PIC16F628A or any of the ones with ADC, you can easily measure a joystick or other analog device. Plus you could use it do other things down the road.
