This software is for new simchair mkIII I2C controllers (master and peripherals). The master is based on Arduino Leonardo. It uses an epic Leonardo Joystick library by MHeironimus: https://github.com/MHeironimus/ArduinoJoystickLibrary and the I2C bus to communicate with peripherals, which use Arduino Pro mini or Adafruit ADS1115 ADC boards.
There are several cool things about this approach:
we can use device-specific configuration we can use external I2C ADCs we can use filtering when needed without slowing the main controller down we can extend our controller more than we’ll ever need unified interface for everything, buttons or axes Leonardo board allows us to use a nice Joystick library by MHeironimus, which simplifies things like ten times; no more pain with USB descriptors
Note that you will need either an arduino pro mini (sometimes 2 of them) or an ADS1115 for each peripheral (visit http://hc625ma.org for build manuals). All simchair compatible controllers can be upgraded to work with this software and the new controller, see corresponding peripherals pages on http://hc625ma.org or thingiverse.
I don’t think there’s any point in using an old analog version (axes only) anymore, as this one is superior in every way.
Master controller sketch is updated frequently, please update it accordingly.

Writing of documentation for the project takes as much effort as creating new models. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask, I'll do my best to help. Stay tuned for new updates!
