This is the USBJoystick library. It provides an Arduino library and class for reading input from a USB joystick/game pad, such as Logitech 'Dual Action' game pad. It can be subclassed to get control when new input values are read, or when they actually change. Alternatively, you can set up callback functions to be called when new input values are read, or when they actually change.
The version of the package that this documentation refers to can be downloaded from http://www.airspayce.com/mikem/arduino/USBJoystick/USBJoystick-1.2.zip You can find the latest version at http://www.airspayce.com/mikem/arduino/USBJoystick
This library does not steal any timers or add any interrupt handlers.
Example Arduino programs are included to show the main modes of use.
The following example programs are provided:
Install in the usual way: unzip the distribution zip file to the libraries sub-folder of your sketchbook.
If you are using the older Sparkfun DEV-09628 USB Host Shield, you will need to alter the pin definitions in Max3421e_constants.h in the USB_Host_Shield library as discussed in http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9628
If you require the USB Host Shield to be installed with WiShield, expect pin conflicts. These can be resolved by Bending the USB Host Shield pins D8, D9 and D10 out of the way and then jumpering Host Shield D10 to D6, Host Shield D9 to D3, Host Shield D8 to D5, then changing the settings in Max3421e_constants.h like this (for the older Sparkfun DEV-09628 USB Host Shield). See this photo showing Duemilanove, WiShield and USB Host Shield stack.
This library has been tested with Duemilanove and SparkFun USB Host Shield DEV-09628, with the Logitech 'Dual Action' USB Game Pad P/N 863247-0010 compiled with arduino-0021 on OpenSuSE 11.1 and avr-libc-1.6.1-1.15, cross-avr-binutils-2.19-9.1, cross-avr-gcc-4.1.3_20080612-26.5.
