    Nah, start an actual wiki rather than a article on wikipedia. I doubt you'll manage to avoid deletion on wikipedia anyway.

    You can normally pick up a 5V supply directly from your usb port connection and from memory (correct me if I'm wrong here folks) the resistor should be about 330 ohms.
    i did this "collage" but actually my gamepad has different connections...

    the resistor is connected to the (-) -> (+5v) and not the way arround... i don't know why... but it is what it is...

    my controller has about 40 LEDS and two gamepads, and all are working...

    you just need to connect all of them together in a mesh...

    I gave you the original drawing on your build log thread but it seems to have disappeared, that's why I used your one. I should have checked it. I'm working away from home at the moment, I'll post the correct one with it when I get home.

    no no...

    the drawing is correct...

    that's the way to do it... i'm just saying that my gamepad, for reasons that i don't understand, works the other way around... when it comes to led, the + are the -

    How did you connect the LEDs?

    I'm hoping to make two controllers. One with a numpad mod for cue points and want the LEDs to come on when buttons are depressed. The other a more midifighter-style effects controller with knobs etc too. Both will be small-ish controllers with 4x4 grids of buttons (though second one with have knobs and/or faders).

    So, how do I wire the LEDs to get them to come on when buttons are depressed? Do I need to wire each LED to the button directly, including the resistor?

    i dind't understand the question...

    do you want the leds to light when depressed? so when you are not pressing the buttons they lighted?
