Re: The ultimate orb solution, at last.

[quote="vputz"]I'm pretty sure that the Arduino environment is Java-based; maybe there's a problem with your Java installation?[/quote] Thank you Victor for the info, I don’t think it is Java giving me problems (2 new hard drives, OS, Java update Jan,09 and everything working great until Arduino).

Re: The ultimate orb solution, at last.

I don’t know if you have the difficulty opening the Arduino environment as I do Victor? If you do you must be a saint to tolerate the consent freezing, will not close, can’t shut down PC normally and have to hit reset to restart your PC constantly!! VERY TIME COMSUMING doing this numerous times tryi...

Re: The ultimate orb solution, at last.

I just read your post Victor and I’ll try out your Precision Mode tomorrow night, it is too late now and I am tired. I do have a question; did you design this Precision Mode to be used with 6 button or chording? In your instructions in sounds like chording but I wanted to ask. Ya-know I am wanting o...

Re: The ultimate orb solution, at last.

Very well done Victor, your new OrbShields look awesome populated! [quote="vputz"]The truth is the USB connector should probably shift a bit inward and the resistor/diode cluster should shift upward. As it is, you may notice the piece of paper sticking out from under the resistors in the above pictu...

Re: The ultimate orb solution, at last.

Victor, your “spaceorb.cfg” works in HL2 Episode One also. I only had time to try your 6 button config but it worked great! This game saves its config.cfg in “Steam\ Steam Apps\Users Name\Half-Life 2 episode one\episodic\cfg”. (I had a hard time finding it because there are so many .cfgs in this gam...

Re: The ultimate orb solution, at last.

I’m glad you found the resistors locally and you can stuff your board. You’re a lucky man to have your wife away for the day; I wish my lady would go somewhere for a day or week so I can concentrate on projects. When her eyes open her mouth starts and it doesn’t stop till her eyes close. :( I’m goin...

Re: The ultimate orb solution, at last.

I have the JOY 1 &3 problem solved now Victor, I discovered that HL2 will execute the “ JOY attack” bindings on first start of the game if you write them as (bind "JOY1" "+attack" etc). The “attack/attack2” bindings still show up as Mouse1 & 2 in the games option/keyboard bindings but my new...

Re: The ultimate orb solution, at last.

[quote="vputz"]That should be the way to do it. I think you should have joy1-joy4, then aux5-aux16, but I seem to remember something weird when I was configuring L4D, like it went straight to aux6 (or something strange). I do find the Steam/HL2 configuration confusing--but at least it can be done, u...

Re: The ultimate orb solution, at last.

[quote="vputz"]Sure, we'll try the precision-mode thing; it was bugging me that it's not in yet. [/quote] It’s great that you’ll try the precision mode, the Orb needs it for aiming badly. I’m looking forward to giving it a try. [quote="vputz"]But let's get chording working first. Before HL2 configur...

Re: The ultimate orb solution, at last.

Chording Huh! I’ve been working the last 2 nights trying to make it work, what a pain in my…butt (and head)! :) Very long story but I’ll make this very short. I changed the HidSorb chording to true and started HL2, opened options/keyboard and noticed the task I had binded to Joy1 & 2 were change...

[quote="vputz"](although I sure don't mind continuing to add things like "precision mode" buttons or playing with bindings)[/quote] Are you talking about the 4000 or the Orb?

Re: The ultimate orb solution, at last.

[quote="vputz"]My single biggest problem with the orb: fine-grained control when you need it. That's one reason they had the cubic curve, so it was a bit flatter in the middle and you could just jam it around the outside edges for fast motion, but it was always a problem.[/quote] Thank you Victor fo...

Re: The ultimate orb solution, at last.

Here are the results of the test I ran tonight Victor. I hope it is some help to you. I will explain the axis results using Orb axis and control panel applet axis so hopefully you know what I’m talking about.
