I've got a personal project I'm trying to complete. And what it involves is taking and old Sega Konami Gun Control pad, converting to a com device and then developing a driver for it.
Basicly I plan on splicing the wire and removing the sega plug and replacing it with a usb or com port plug. After wards, I need to try and develop a driver for the device to handle input. I guess my questions and need for advice involve these questions -
Is it feasable to take some old console controller and convert it to usb by simply splicing the wires?
How can I develop a driver for a completly unknown device. Is there a way to poll a usb connection for any kind of signal or connection being sent? Then just develop some drivers to test that information?
Thanks for serious replys in advance.
