How may I make an interface for the Ds'es Slot-2, like the paddle, ram, and guitar grip.
Just buy them. Much simpler.
I have looked for ages to find what I want, but it does not seem to be on the internet.
What are you talking about? A simple google search and you will find them.
Well I want an interface to connect two ps2 devices (Mouse/Keyboard/Scanner/ect) to the Slot-2 for homebrew things.
You'll also have to write software for that.
It might be done but keep in mind.
The DS's CPU is weak.
I know, that is why hardware on the device would decode the ps2, making it easy on the nds. (Plus I hear the slot-2 is a little slow.)
Then I'd suggest hooking an Arduino up to the Slot-2 of a DS.
That might work but I doubt it that you'll pull it off that it'll be usefull.
It would be cool as a POC tho.
I was just looking into the Arduino thing. :-) I just need to know how to get the ds to talk with it... That is what I have not found yet, I have read gbatek many times...
You'll need to talk to the DS in NDS mode.
It's the same was as they did it with Slot-2 cards.
FlashMe would be a good idea.
I have no experience what so ever in NDS coding so I can't help you with that.
Oh whell, I think I have the coding part figured ds side, just not the slot-2 hardware, that is the big sticking point for me.
Maybe you could look up on other projects involving a NDS with a Arduino?
Sure, that would be a good idea...
Hackaday might have some..
looks like close, but no. (There is one that just say it was done with a camera thing)
I'm playing around with the GBA-slot myself, trying to get my DS to communicate with my Arduino. I've managed to send data from the Arduino to the DS, but not the other way around. Right now I've only sent 16 bits, so it's just a small step forward. I can't promise anything, but I'll keep trying and see if I can get the devices to communicate properly. However, there is one possible problem using a regular Arduino. It may be too slow to be able to communicate, even with the GBA-slot set to the lowest speed. I've yet to confirm this, but it might be a problem. I'm doing this for fun anyways, so it's just interesting to see if it works out. If it does I might use it in some projects I have in mind.
So you have managed to send data to the ds, and have the ds read it? How is your hardware setup?
i know you are discussing slot-2, but have you read about ds brute?
I will look at that, but I want it so that you may use whatever Slot-1 you have, for ease of use, and they are 100%sold out... Found schematics!
