I Miss this!

Postby <SK> | @RoYaLPuTz » Mon Jan 08, 2018 3:08 pm

Wish I could play at all. 7 years ago I lost my right arm in a factory accident. Long story short I haven't been able to play for a very long time. I have an idea that I need help with. It might let me play again.

Ok here it goes,
Is it possible to solder in a dance pad to a keyboard?
I want to use the Dance pad to replace the W,A,S,D,E,R,SPACEBAR,Ect, buttons on the keyboard.
I think that there are 9 control pads in the Dance pad. If I could control these buttons with my feet Maybe I could get back in game.

I've tried Programmable mice and joysticks, None worked. Valve wouldn't recognize them as legal controls or some thing, it kept kicking me.

I had a co-worker with really bad carpal tunnel. He uses a foot-operated mouse device. Just a thought.

One option:

Also, Have you heard about the Dvorak keyboard?

At one time I was working on ways to type on a phone. (Pre smart-phone) There are some patents out there with my work... Microsoft hates me...

Thanks guys. I need some thing to get past VAC. Steam only allows Keyboards n mice Or Like an Xbox type controller. That's why I want to try n manufacture one outta a Keyboard and dance pad. Keyboards are 5 bucks for Dell keyboards around here,a dance pad for about 15. So it wont cost much for the parts. I just need some one who thinks they are good at micro soldering to try and do this.
