Does anyone have a foot switch they like to use with Vent (for the push to talk button)? I use a button on my mouse, but was thinking it would be nice to have a foot pedal to hit to talk, thus freeing up the mouse button for some other in game function. I thought one year either maximum pc or pc gamer had a Christmas (oh I mean holiday) wish list that showed some foot switches. Don't see a lot of options looking round the net though.

I've made a custom foot switch using an old USB keyboard. Currrently I have a pedal board with 6 switches on it each assigned a different key.

If you're interested I can give you the instructions on how to do it.

That is the article I was thinking about. Thanks for the find. Has anyone used the stealth switch?

This seems like an interesting product, but not one that I consider worth $40. Maybe $20, that would get me opening my wallet.

I found this youtube video that shows what I'm talking about. It only shows what to do for a single pedal but expanding it to multiple pedals isn't that hard.
