tuff does this mod! he loved doing it!

LOL! PM him and he'll price it, i'm sure he's learned from his past mistakes! :)

Honestly I would love to give it a shot but every time I have to do detailed soldering I seem to screw up.

I sent tuff a MSG. Thanks for the heads up.

You will have to get that stick [teensy] flashed with a new code. Any firmware past 20160918 will not work.


My analog stick doesn't work on new XIM4 firmware. Does anyone have a new code so this will work?

Thank you

Does anyone have a fix for this? I don't think I'm the only one who is using this.

Hey, bud. I just ordered a new orbweaver stealth and all the parts to do this mod. I have all the equipment to do this myself, but I am concerned I made a mistake if this no longer works. Are you still using this? Just noticed that the code may need some reworking by another post. Thanks man.

So, the two sketches mostly will be the same. Now with the latest XIM4 firmware you need to flash the teensy as a keyboard/mouse/joystick instead of one of the custom XIM JOYSTICK types. You will also need to include code just before you send joystick input that zero's out the new stick axes.

Thanks man. Got the Orbweaver today. Waiting on the other parts. I'll post my results once complete.

I want to thank Tuffrabit & W11cE for making this all possible for me. Amazing job on the youtube series. It really helped a lot.
I completed my mod yesterday. I don't know anything about code, so it took me a while to figure out a few things.




I performed a little surgery on the thumb switch button below the analog stick. it was just a little to high for me and i was finding myself accidentally activating it. I cut out the riser, sanded it down flat and used epoxy to bond it back together. Its very sturdy.

I modified the code from the OP a little.

Code: [Select]
#include <EEPROM.h>


int Xval;
int Yval;
int overVal = 256;
int minX;
int maxX;
int minY;
int maxY;

void setup() {
 
  minX = EEPROM.read(0) << 8 | EEPROM.read(1);
  maxX = EEPROM.read(2) << 8 | EEPROM.read(3);
  minY = EEPROM.read(4) << 8 | EEPROM.read(5);
  maxY = EEPROM.read(6) << 8 | EEPROM.read(7);
 
}

void loop() {
 
  Xval = map(analogRead(8), minX, maxX, 1023+overVal, 0-overVal);
  Yval = map(analogRead(9), minY, maxY, 1023+overVal, 0-overVal);
  if(Xval < 0) Xval = 0;
  if(Xval > 1023) Xval = 1023;
  if(Yval < 0) Yval = 0;
  if(Yval > 1023) Yval = 1023;
 
  Joystick.X(Xval);
  Joystick.Y(Yval);

  Joystick.Z(512);
  Joystick.Zrotate(512);
  Joystick.sliderLeft(0);
  Joystick.sliderRight(0);
  Joystick.hat(-1);
}

This includes the updated code for direct Xim users. Thanks again guys.

I used this website to test and calibrate the pot. This was provided by Tuff on his YT channel.
