first, I think an introduction is in order,
I’m a programmer by profession & a game programmer by hobby (still nothing published, but in the way).
& I’ve been interested in embedded systems every since I heard about the Arduino project (over 2 years ago), but never had the time or motive to try it.
since my preferred language is C#, I’ve been looking at various products that support .netmf
& after seeing the concept of Gadgeteer, I feel like this field will be my new home for a while.
anyway, I’m in the middle of evaluating the various fez boards & it seems like cerberus is not yet ready & therefore out of question.
so, I’m left with Hydra & Spider.
in this topic (http://www.tinyclr.com/forum/1/62/) & in many search results I found, they all refer back to this post (http://www.microframeworkprojects.com/project/49) for using the xbox controller through USB.
but, it seems like the website (microframeworkprojects.com) is dead, so, I have no way of knowing what was in it.
so my question is, in order to use an xbox controller with the netmf, do I need to get the Spider & the USB host, or should I get either card & use some other USB reader ?
how hard/easy is it to implement such a feature ?
