Rapid Fire Controller Question.
Posted 02 March 2008 - 10:24 PM
i have a question i was wondering about the 555 timers and wondering if it could be used instead of a pic microcontroller in this set up - http://consolecustom...ed_high_res.pdf
using this setup they have, can you swith out the pic for a 555? or would that not work?

the last rapid fire mod i did i made a 555 astable circuit and used 2 variable resistors one resistor for the length of the button press and one for how fast the button is pressed, i just added inline with the extra button. it wasnt the neatest looking thing and couldnt fit inside the controller but it did the job fine for me.

you cant just get any 14 pin pic chip.
it was to be programed with the rapid fire informations.

I've tried a few different schematics now, and I'm actually in the process of doing the cparsell version. I'll write back to let you know how it works. I've tried doing what you are asking about and I've tried SummitG's version:
Halfway down the page, has screenshots
The first version, where I tried what you are suggesting, just didn't work at all. SummitG's version worked, but it was inconsistent, sometimes it worked amazingly, sometimes it worked like poo.
Good luck =)

do you have to use a cmos 555 timer if you are doing this on a wired controller??
