    Default Midi-Fighter as USB game-controller?

    I recently purchased a Midi-Fighter and thought as well as using it in Traktor, it would be perfect as a USB game controller for Street Fighter 4 and other games. Is there any way to make it recognizable as just a USB-controller instead of Midi?

    Thanks.

    Not without some major recoding to convert it from a USB-MIDI device to a HID controller - you replace all the USB Descriptors, replace the main loop and send HID messages instead of MIDI packets. Definitely possible using the LUFA libraries we based our code on (they have easily convertable example code for a Mouse demo), but not something I'm concentrating on.

    Source code for Midifighter and LUFA are available for free, so why not do it yourself?

    I think the easiest way to do this would be find some application which can covert/map midi to HID keypresses. I have looked for something like this but had no luck so far

    Default Voltage across LEDs?

    also, what is the voltage across the red LEDs? I was wondering if it's enough if I wanted to replace the red with blue LEDs, like about 3.3v?

    You can replace the Leds with any color you want, you just need 1206 package surface mount leds and some soldering skills.

    Bomes Midi Translator will do this perfectly! I use my midiFighter for games all the time. :3
    I'm not good at things, but I like to pretend I am.

    Easiest way I found was like the previous poster stated.

    http://www.bome.com/products/miditra...erview/classic

    and with midiox.

    http://www.midiox.com/

    I'm making a tutorial for midi devices in the next few days for Instructables.
    It will be a step by step.
    If you want some help feel free to message me.
    I will have a tutorial done soon though.
    I do not use a midifighter but this will work with most midi devices.

    I will post a link when I'm done if anyone is interested!
