Yes, it just needs to be posted. Before you start on your other two, please install, calibrate, and run "stress" (test) against your mod. All those tools are part of the new XIM2 software package the OMGsus should be finishing the install for shortly.

the xim 360 kit just came in today, so i'll post what i've done so far.

Also, be extra careful with those alligator clips. They are capable of scratching off things that are important. :) I normally put index paper between the clip and the board and use multiple clips for extra support.

Sorry guys -- this was my bad. I just finished a last-minute change last night that was required for the installer to work properly. OMGsus was blocked on completing the installer until that point.

I don't see why not.

OMGsus is doing us the honor of packaging all the binaries into a nice installer. I'll check on the status of it and let you know.

I'm going to add my $0.02 here because I can. :P

Your family, and your role in supporting them, should be your #1 priority. Depending on your situation, earning "sacks of gold peanuts", may, in fact, be the best way to support them (say your kid has a condition that requires very expensive treatment). But, it sounds like, in your situation, that isn't the case. Being a father that is really engaged and a significant part of your daughter's life is much more important to her than an absent father that sends a bunch of money home.

So, don't ever regret that you missed out on something great, because, you didn't. :)

for smoothness, try a negative number

Whoa! Negative numbers are supported for smoothness. Since you aren't getting an error about it, it's either going to be converted to zero, a really large number, or, it's going to crash. :)

Is there a way for us to update the firmware, should it become necessary?

Yes! I designed the firmware so that it is upgradable via USB.

I just wanted to say thanks to all who are making the XIM2 happen.

You are welcome! :)

Whoa....Does The XIM Support Joysticks?

Yes, XIM2 does. And yes, the Saitek CCU's integrated stick is an actual analog stick. The N52 is only 8-way.

Actually, the Saitek enumerates as a USB joystick device. So, it's a joystick with a lot of buttons.

I Thought It Was Kind Pointless(Playing Halo Like That Is Sort Of Similar To Playing Halo Drunk.)

It was that pointless technology demo that showcased the possibilities of XIM which grew into where we are today. :)

As for the Saitek CCU, I've been gaming with it for some time now with XIM2. Movement continues to be done with analog control while look is done with a mouse. This is the only reason XIM2 supports joysticks -- because I felt this would be a great way to game (which it is).

Support / Re: PS2 controller interface
« on: 02:13 PM - 08/17/08 »
XIM1 emulates PS2 controller signals to talk to the XFPS. I mention what reference I used on my blog (http://obsiv.spaces.live.com). That reference is here: http://www.gamesx.com/controldata/psxcont/psxcont.htm.

The next problem is emulating those waveforms via a PC. There are various USB-TTL boards out there that you could use. You may be even able to do it via your PC's parallel port (not sure how successful you'd be using a EPP).

Timing is important as the protocol is similar to SPI. This is why I chose the Toolstick has it implements SPI in hardware.

Hope that helps... Good luck!

General Discussion / Re: new macro with xim 2?
« on: 11:14 AM - 08/17/08 »
Correct. You will need to rely on XAE for macro support. The new XIM2 client doesn't support macros.

We use the knob to turn down the awesome. Otherwise, you would go numb and blind.

Was it clock-wise or counter-clock-wise for more awesome? Why is it I can't remember these things!

LOL!

General Discussion / Re: keyboard and mouse on the couch
« on: 08:10 AM - 08/12/08 »
It's very important to me to be able to play in my living room. This is an older pic from my blog about my setup for XIM1:


My XIM2 setup is very similar, except I'm now using a Saitek CCU game pad (with integrated analog thumbstick for movement) and a Microsoft Habu gaming mouse.

The board-on-lap setup works really well for me.
