# wirelessNES
Firmware written in Arduino C for a wireless NES controller and receiver unit.

Author: Eason Smith (

For more documentation (HW and SW) on this project, please visit

This project would not be possible without some amazing work done by the following individuals:
* Dean Cameron | LUFA USB Stack -
* Darran Hunt | Arduino Hacking Blog -
* Mark Feldman | -
* Ryan97128 | Nintendo Controller MP3, Version 2.0 -
* Mike McCauley | Virtual Wire Library -

**Authors Note:**
2/8/2016 - While this project is no longer active (it's about 6 years old) I am currently working to document it for myself and others
who might find it interesting. Because of this, I cant currently make strong gaurentees that these files will still compile even for the original
arduino IDE version it was designed for (V0020). This is due to small code / comment cleanups here and there while the hardware has remained
in storage. I am actively working to confirm functionality using other methods, and I hope to reproduce misssing documentation as I go along.
Thanks for your patience. -Eason

* Arduino IDE V0020 (or below V1.0)
* Virtualwire Library -
* Arduino UNO rev2 with an onboard atmega8U2 (may work for atmega16U2, but this is not tested)

**What's currently missing:**

1. 8U2 Hex file for the atmega 8U2: Not missing actually. I have it on my PC but need to verify that it is the
final (working) atmega8u2 hex file I used for this project. This will be available shortly.

2. Schematic/Pinout Diagram: I will most likely have to reproduce the full schematics of the project and controller pinout connections
from scratch (ugg), however I did leave myself enough clues/comments in both the software I wrote and from old photos I took to be able
to accurately reproduce the schematic. This is also on the way.
