Hi, I have a question reguarding lights for my cabinet. I'm using a laptop without a parallel port, but i do have a USB controller which i use to drive lights for other projects. (i have tried USB to parallel adapters in the past but i cannot get windows to set these up as standard parallel ports, hence the USB module) My question is can i use this for the cabinet lights in stepmania? the source code only deals with parallel lights, and im wondering if anyone who knows the lights-part of the code could help me with understanding the source code re. the lights, so i can add a "driver" for my USB module.
If its any help, the module is a Vellemans K8055 USB experiment kit and has 8 controllable outputs, to which ive wired superbright LEDS which give the effect i want. I have experience programming for this module in visual basic, but have not tried with c++ yet (i'm new to c++ but want to learn more), but the code examples provided on the manufacturer's CD rom for driving the lights on the module looks simple enough.
Thanks in advance, and sorry for my noobishness lol
