    Hi everyone.
    I'm a bit of a novice with this kind of stuff, but you have to start somewhere don't you.
    I'm building a flight simulator. I would like to use rotary encoders to change certain values up or down.
    These would be interfaced to the computer via a keyboard encoder.
    Is there a fairly simple circuit that would let me turn the encoder and receive two seperate signals, one for up and one for down?
    So the circuit would be like pressing a button for up and a button for down.
    Sorry if that's a bit unclear.
    If anybody could offer me any help I would be very greatful.

    Thanks in advance.
    Colaboy.

    Hi, thanks for the reply.
    However, i will need about twenty of them and they have to be asignable to a key stroke from my keyboard encoder.

    Thanks for the advice though.

    Google on IOCards or FSBUS, both are freeware electronic solutions for the flightsimulator...
