While the software and interface parts of the project are coming along nicely, the first full test of the dancepad was not quite satisfactory yet. This might have been either a problem with latency in the controller, or a problem with the button mechanisms. Seeing one of the buttons was being especially stubborn, I suspect the latter.
It might just need some tuning and tinkering, but while we figure that out we’ve got enough time to do a little more research. Maybe even take a little looksie inside the buttons of the original pads for inspiration..
