Yeah, Christmas rush delayed me a bit :S



I've just realised I forgot to order the actual USB connector, so there's going to be a 5 business day wait until that appears...

I might end up just taking apart a USB cable and connecting that instead, but I'll keep this updated all the same :)

Nice!
This showed up in the mail today so i am keen to see how good it is

It is also way bigger than i expected, the monitor in the background is a 27" for some perspective
posted
As a fellow 27" monitor user... Holy crap that drum is big! Better speed up my development efforts, keen to see how that performs.

People with circuit making experience might understand the monumental failure I made with this board:


...That aside, with some awful fixes I now have a working prototype. Firmware is next, then software to configure what buttons the drum activates. Hopefully it'll be finished by the time the next (fingers crossed, the final) prototype arrives from the fab :)

posted
Sorry for the lack of updates, I recently started a full time internship and have been pretty low on time to do stuff like this.

I've got the prototype working now, but there's still a 15-20ms input lag. Currently determining whether this is an issue with my controller or whether the tatacon actually has inherent lag (I hope not!).
posted
No worries man take your time all looks pretty sweet so far, even if it might have a bit of lag it should still have better latency than Bluetooth and not having to pair the controller each time i want to play is a big bonus too.

What is the difference between this and the converter outside? But surely the circuit board art is fantastic ww
posted
Damn your soldering is really neat :D
Nice job!

Hey there yo, just a little bump to let you know there's still interest in this project ;)
posted
I'd be interested in this as well; just have to go pick-up another Tatacon (regrettably sold the Wii and PS2 ones I had).

A quick idea on the latency; can the converter do 1000Hz polling rate? Not sure what the device itself has to have as a requirement, but you can force polling rates on most USB devices with a custom driver/service in Windows, and possibly a program in Linux.

On a slightly different matter; how would this adapter compare to wusbmote?

How is it now?

I tried wusbmote with my Hori tatacon and it doesn't seem to work, the wusbmote is recognized as a game pad which osu! doesn't have support for in taiko mode unfortunately and also when i got to configure the wusbmote controller from the devices panel i get no button inputs from the drum. but i do get button responses from the nunchuck buttons and stick. I haven't played around with the config tool yet though so ill see how that goes

*Edit
The config tool is actually a command line tool for configuring the adaptor and has only been tested in linux but apparently works in windows and OSX as well, i have only done basic arduino stuff before so this stuff is over my head and i couldn't be arsed trying to figure it out at this point and wouldn't really know where to even begin (probably at reading the full product description before i buy things).

to the OP I should also mention i am still interested in the converter just exploring different options in the meantime

GRUMBLE GRUMBLE this is the second time the forum has neglected to email me replies >:( I thought others had lost interest, and kinda forgot to check manually :(

I think the 20ms lag is in the controller itself and the way hits are registered - they seem to be capacitive switches, which are never really instant. I'm not happy with 20ms lag, so I'm somewhat stalled at the moment. I would love to be proved wrong.

As such, I've put my progress thus far on GitHub, (hopefully) ready for others to take a crack at. If you have an Arduino, you can buy a $2 nunchuck adapter from eBay (search "Arduino nunchuck") and play around - the important stuff is reading the status of the switches via i2c.

Sorry for disappearing for 2 months, I gave up and forgot people still wanted updates :(

If you want to take this further and are having issues, please PM me, I will be happy to assist where I can.

Happy new year, taiko players!

Over the past few months, with some excellent help from tobuei and Sand (seriously, thanks guys) I have made a new version.

Features
  1. 1ms response time. Delay is completely imperceptible
  2. Sweet LEDs (can be turned off)
  3. Responds so fast you can bounce your sticks and get multi hits. Can be turned off with Debounce feature.
  4. Tested working on official, Hori and knockoff controllers
  5. Windows, Linux, Mac compatible + cross platform Chrome app for configuration
  6. Config app allows future firmware updates to add more features
  7. No drivers required!
  8. Open source


Updated price estimate is $20USD shipped anywhere.

I have made an order for 20 boards to start with, and they will arrive about a month from now.

I won't get payment from anyone until they arrive, but they're coming!

posted
Thanks for your effort you have put in this project!
Can't wait to see it actually comes out
posted
Woah I thought this died. Will 100% be purchasing one!
posted
I'd definitely start taiko mode if I had one of these. Im totally interested in buying one!
posted
Hello there, I'll definitively buy it once you release it ;)

Why this isn't in the Taiko subforum? I would have never seen it if I didn't check the Development forum because of boredom. lol
For users like me, this is very interesting. I'm having a tatacon, but I rarely play it due to way too huge input lags. I can expect this to work even my outdate tatacon, right? As in, this works for the old and new versions of TNT's tatacons?

It made sense for it to be in development initially, but now it's ready I should post there! Should I move the thread or just post a link to it in the taiko forum?

If Taiko no Tatsujin can see it, it should work with my converter! :D
