X Box Controller on Centroid Acorn CNC

Post by RGSparber » Thu Aug 24, 2017 7:09 pm

Here is a video of my X Box Controller feeding through a REWASD driver to the keyboard control screen. In this video I said the controller cost less than $30 but now I see it at Walmart for $14 and free shipping. The driver cost $6.00.

That's very clever Rick! I wonder if someone will ever conjure up a driver or plug-in or whatever sorcery is required to allow my XHC HB04 USB Mach3 pendant to work with Acorn? That would really be awesome!
