    I would be interested in how you created the plugin for RR. I am not a programmer but am going to learn a little. From what I can see, Fusion offers the source for their stuff and Centrafuse offers an SDK. And, looks like Visual Designer can be used to create the skin and even integrate the Fusion code(although that appears to be for the skin only). The part I'm having trouble understanding is what code is needed.

    In other words, it doesn't appear that a lot of manual code writing is necessary but rather picking the right stuff to put in. Centrafuse looks to offer example apps that would require editing.

    I haven't had a chance to look at it yet, but someone created a VB app to get basic stuff from the fusion brain. Looks like it would be the easiest to integrate into Centrafuse and then use that data in calculations, maybe in the xml?

    I would love for someone that's been there to provide some insight.

    MDX has the ability to do COM interaction. I do not have or use CentraFuse, but if they have an SDK I can try to see what happens...

    i actually started writing a CF plugin for the fusion brain but stopped shortly after my trial ended. In its current form it controls the digital outputs but doesnt handle the analog/digital inputs. If you'd like the source to finish this i'll provide it.. u'll need visual studio 2008 because its written in vb.net

    Yes! Please! I'd like to take a look at what you did. I have Visual Studio 2008. Right now I find it interesting that you chose to use VB, part was in C++, and part was in C#.

    2k1 - If you are willing to register, Centrafuse has an SDK available. You might even talk to them and get them to let you have more than a 30 day trial of Centrafuse. You are a developer, right? Then you could develop a plugin and make your product (Fusion Brain) more attractive to more users. (hint, hint).

    Anyways, I really don't want to be a programmer but I think I can figure out how to do what I want if I have examples and a starting point (well, maybe a little bit more than starting). I'm wanting something kind of specific and don't intend to spend the time it takes to develop a flexible interface. So, if 2k1 could jump in there.......

    Well for my plugin I picked Sonic's brain over RR's interface for a while since I didnt get the documentation apparently. But I think I understand it know and i got it working.

    I do all my work in C# now, and I did download the CF trial with intent to integrate it. I havent even double clicked the little icon yet. I will send an email to Flux and see what we can work out.

    I see this as win-win. They would have a very nice plugin to control additional hardware from within their front end and you guys would have additional appeal from Centrafuse users.

    I have actually contemplated going the other direction by developing MDX to suit my needs (or wants, depending on your point of view) since I really want to navigate, play music, and display information (temp, distance, g-force), and maybe control cameras. But I already have Centrafuse so the shortest route seems to be to integrate MDX.

    Along the distance thing, can you tell me how to get MDX to sound tones? Like slow beeping at long distance changing to fast beeping at mid distance and then to solid tone at close distance when using the sonar sensor?

    Thanks for any help.

    I would second the motion for a plugin for CF. I have been debating between FB and phidgets, (only because someone did a plugin for phidgets already), but would prefer to use FB.

    So any help would be great!

    @SonicXtasy, could you email/send me your source code?

    I'm going to work with Proph's FB and create a Facade for FusionBrain. Then I'll work on making the Interface for CF. I've already written an application to query for the FB devices and read the data off of them but I don't have the FB in front of me to verify that everything works. Hopefully next week I'll have a facade ready for any other .NET developers to use.
