Multiple button boxes possible?
I built a Huracan GT3 steering wheel last year to use in ACC. Driven by an Arduino Pro Micro with Sim Hub. So this is "button box1"
Now i´m on the way to build a console, also inspired by the Hurancan GT3 (button box 2). The easiest way seems to take a pro micro again.
But i wondered how they work together. Not that pushing button 1 on the wheel makes the same input as button 1 on the console.
Anyone an idea if it works? Or do i have to take something else like the Leo Bodnar BBI 32 to use the second button box?
Thanks for your answer.
you can use several Arduino Pro Micro without issues, each Arduino is seen as a different joystick in windows and inside your games. So when you press button 1 on your wheel the game will register "JOY1_Button0" and when you press button 1 on your console the game will register "JOY2_Button0" (those are examples). To ease your life, you can set a different name for each Arduino when you upload your sketch in Simhub.
