View Full Version : to John Abshier about NES code

Thanks for the code, got a couple of questions:
note: I'm using the demo board

1. When connecting the controller yellow/data is at PO, orange/latch is at P1, red/clk is at P2, white/power is 5v, and brown/ground is at Vss?
2. If question 1 is true, and i'm using an actual NES brand controller, then it's recognizing the controller as a SNES.

What i'm working on is a robot tank with camera and microphone, the camera will be mounted to a pan/tilt servo and i want to controll it with a wireless NES controller. So when i push UP both motors will go forward, when i push left the right motor will forward and the left will go backwards . . .

Thanks for helping
Daniel Mueth

I think that yellow is clock, red is data, and orange is latch. Which is different from what you described in your post.

All i'm getting for an output on the monitor is:



"65535 1111111111111111"

and when i push a button the screen flashes like it refreshes but the text on the screen doesn't change.

again thank you

did you post the NES only version?

I am not sure what code you are using. My object does not write "SNES" Perhaps you used that as a short cut for "SuperNES" Are you shure the screen flashes when you push a button. My test program refreshes the screen every second. Buttons return 0 when pressed. Attached is the old version that only works for NES.
