You need to commit some energy to reading Andy's details on the Ultimarc website.

Members here already have done everything for you except for driving to your house with a board and installing it for you.

Sorry Bobby I did feel like I was frustrating the forum my apologies. I did fully read pretty much Andy's entire website and it all made pretty good sense. Originally I was just confused about how to wire things up since I didn't feel like my cabinet setup had the pot wires just ready to go. And then after that I was just super confused about all the coding and programing that people where talking about. I didn't do a very good job of keeping everything concise. I do appreciate all your guys help and all the info. I am definitely much more confidant now on getting this thing to happen. Thanks again to every one and sorry again for taking up so much of all of your guys time.

Heard he had some interesting political thoughts on the Facebook as the business went down in flames.  Looks like it's been purged.

Not me.

They made ---smurfy--- looking cabs and I am now extra glad they are closed.

Thank god.

Their cabs looked like ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---.

Widescreen turds.
Their control panels were some of the best 3rd party units on the market.  They used commercial parts and their encoders work flawlessly.  Personally, I I wasn't a fan of some of their flat panel cabinets, but the pedestal cabinet I bought is top notch and well built.  I had a small nick in one of the legs, and they sent me replacements the next day with no questions asked.  I am sure their employees and the owner appreciates you thanking god for their demise.  I find it unfortunate that a small business with great customer service and products had to shudder.

What's the point of all the coding and what not?
The point is to handle things like Vee21's shifter and/or other uncommon/custom/inexpensive encoder setups.

There are other firmware options like a rotary joystick encoder (Ikari Warriors) or a 12 button keypad that needs a matrix encoder for Intellivision.



Picture wanting to make a cab with a Star Wars yoke, gas+brake pedals, and some admin buttons to navigate the game menu.
- 4 pots
- 4 player buttons (2 trigger, 2 thumb)
- 4 admin buttons

You can do that with an A-Pac ($43 + ship) or a full-size U-HID ($69 + ship) or an Arduino Pro Micro. ($5-10 + ship -- I've picked some up for as little as $3 each)

So, what's the point of all the coding and what not?  Flexibility and low cost.   ;D

Oh OK!! So if I'm willing to spend a few extra bucks I can purchase the apac and hook it up to my 3 pots (gas, brake, 270 steering) and like 10 micro switches (4 gears, plus control panel stuff) and be basically be done since all I want is to be able to play different racing 270 steering wheel games, no coding or firmware stuff at all just setting up the apac to work with the emulators and what not?

The mega 2560 clones are an INSANELY cheap option for a control encoder, and they work amazingly well.  The vJoyIOFeederWithFFB project is spectacular.

Just cover them up with collage of arcade and console characters.  Nobody will ever know.
