Still lot to do but my idea is confirmed. Probably piece of cake for a c++ coder.

Thank you for encouraging me. Well I must admit that I did it. It works now without manual triggering. Now I must work on the code to make all Arduino inputs usable. Simple but takes time. I will put today's video of working Arduino. Next step is creating some led panel for extended tests for more leds to be controlled.

This is how it works for now. Arduino is "attached" to emulator 'START' button. Observe the upper orange LED and START button. 

Only built-in led is used. Simply just for purpose of method testing, and it works like a charm!
This is just an UNO clone, but considering Arduino Mega with it's 54 outputs, we are talking on pretty cool alternative for expensive PacDrive.

Next time I plan to put here a video with more programmed outputs. I will try to work on PWM signals for light dimming effect.

Work in progress... still lot to do.

nice project but still don't understand how this is better than a pac-drive.

Late night. Arduino my love!

Electronics set up. Software set up.

Fire!

....It's ALIVE!!!!

 

I confirm Arduino as alternative for Pac-Drive. It works fantastic. Zero latency. Unlimited possibilities.

Happy night :)

 

Some work is still needed. Software has to be reworked, but the main thing is achieved.

Good night.

:jimlad: Just wait for stepper motor control.  This is going to be amazing! Hopefully... :goofy: haha

Hi Konrad,
 
It's a great day for me.
The arduino for Mfme and the semifinal of the football world cup tonight.
If France loses is still a beautiful day.
