RocketBaby woes…. 5 December 2007Posted by David Wilson in USB Missile.
Efforts to get the Missile Launcher software working with the new Dream Cheeky Launcher – RocketBaby – have not been successful.
Unfortunately I do not have one of these launchers and making slight code changes at the USB driver level and sending them offshore for overnight or 1, 2, 3 days turn around is proving to be very frustrating.
I really need someone to send me one of the launchers!
The launcher does move, uncontrollably at this stage, the issues are occurring when I’m trying to get feedback from the launcher on its status.
Attempts in this space are causing the software to lock up. I did find a very good USB web site last night and have been doing more reading on the “readPipe”, and I’m now awaiting feedback from off shore.
Being able to get hold of one of these launchers would significantly speed up development for the enjoyment of all.
What would also possibly help is if anyone else, maybe in the Linux community, has some code that will drive one of the DreamCheeky “RocketBaby” Rocket Launchers.
