Questions / Re: More than 6 keys ?

Hey Sam,

Oh sure - well that's all done on the software end. 
Makey Makey has 18 keys it can output.  You just have to set up your joystick to send different keystrokes in different directions, then on the software end you use those keystrokes to move different angles.  Maybe 'W' is straight forward 0º.  Maybe 'J' is 10º to the right, 'H' is 10º degrees to the left. 

Here's a scratch program that kind of illustrates what I mean. https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/143415297/

If this is for a pre-existing game, you might be able to change the controls in the game's settings.

Hope this helps!

Good luck,

OK, thank you for the answer, but my question was about how to make a joystick which can have the sensitivity of a modern joystick.
In modern videogames, we can have a big range of directions, between "up" and "right", for example. And not only "up" , "right" and "up"+"right".

I wonder if there's a way to do that with makey makey. It seems to be difficult...

Hey MakeyFra,

I'm sorry to say that no, you can't remap modifier keys with Makey Makey.

Hey Nina,

Oh sure!  Yeah that's totally possible.

One way to do it is with Scratch https://scratch.mit.edu/

You could make a block like this below.

The painting could be done with conductive ink.

Hope that helps!

Hey tifreita,

Welcome to the forums!

Wow - that is an awesome idea.
I haven't heard of anyone doing that - it should totally work though!

Have you made any progress on this project?

Oh sure!  You should be able to control a small motor with the back of the Makey Makey. . .

Try these instructions here http://makeymakey.com/lessons/simple-circuit-challenge/

Does that help?

Best,

Hey Sam,

Totally!  There are lots of programs for things like that. . .
The first thing that comes to mind is the Makey Makey Monome http://www.instructables.com/id/MaKey-MaKey-Monome/

Is that the kid of thing you're thinking of?

Questions / Makey Makey Go + Standard Kit + Notebook
« Last post by Goon Gumpas on December 06, 2016, 12:50:10 PM »
Hello everyone! My query is the following: Is it possible to connect the Makey Makey "standard" kit with the "Go" model, so that the ground connection is replaced by the computer (connected to Makey Makey Go)?


The sequence would be as follows:

Standard Kit -> Makey Makey Go -> Notebook (As if it were the ground connection)

I attached a graph to try to explain my query better.
