Hey everyone what’s up…

so this is my DIY Game controller.

It uses an Arduino Pro Micro which runs with HID Function, this is actually the second version of my previous game controller which had buttons but this one has two joysticks.

unlike the previous version, this one runs on the Joystick library which converts this pro micro into a proper gamepad controller…

fun fact, this controller can also run Retro games, like doom and donkey kong, by hooking it up with a retro pi/ or Recal pi setup…

more about that later.

In this Instructables, I’m gonna show you guys how you can build your own game controller in few easy steps so without any further ado, let’s get started!

these are the things that I used for this project-

Custom PCB
Verticle switches
Analog joystick
Pro micro
Female Header Pin”
