USB Missile Launcher NZ – Development Update 12 January 2007Posted by David Wilson in USB Missile.
Huge success tonight. I at last have been able to read data back from the DreamCheeky Rocket Launcher. This means that I can detect when the launcher has reached a point beyond which it should not travel (i.e. full up, full left, full right, full down).
There is some work to do now to actually use the information that I have above, though that should be relatively straight forward now.
I have also impletemented two preference options as requested by YOU!
- Disable the camera – so that it doesn’t come on when the program starts
- Reverse of arrow keys (well the left and right anyway).
I will be away for a week or so shortly. No e-mail, no Internet!
I do not have any time now to complete the DreamCheeky USB changes. This will unfortunately have to wait.
My faulty machine, as reported below, was diagnosed as requiring a new motherboard, but was fortunately covered by the Apple Repair Extension program for the eMac. It was estimated to be 2 weeks before the parts were available and this should be about the same time I get back from holiday.
All the best.
