Hey guys I'm a complete novice when it comes to this stuff, but I really would like to learn how to function a microcontroller. I want to put it on my xbox controller to do multiple timed actions, like RRX buttons to perform in a timed pattern. I know no one can tell me how exactly, but if you could guide me to the proper resources or recommend any books, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks.

Do you have any experience of programming or using microcontrollers? If so, do you have a specific microcontroller in mind?

All I know is that the output on the Xbox controller is USB-based. You can easily hook it up to a computer with some wire splicing & electrical tape/saudering. Google the tutorial.

As for presetting a microcontroller to pulse a certain "Halo 2" cheat button combination, good luck with that.
