    custom -"Also in my car when having the brain hooked up, for analogue 01, I get different voltages when pressing the buttons. The numbers seem to get to the next value faster even if I hit the button slow."

    what do you mean?

    Next Step is to start from scratch and create your own XML following the tutorial exactly as depicted. Create a keypress for each button you are going to use, but before going to your car and hooking everything up, test it on your PC using the virtual brain. Apply different voltages to your input using virtual brain and you should get the different keypresses you assigned to the input. Test all the voltage ranges you have set to make sure that all the keypresses are being sent (to note pad just like you did above when you got all the AAAAAA)

    PLEASE do this before installing and trying in your car and post back the results. If you get the keypresses with your own XML then your XML document is fine. If you do not get any keypresses using virtual brain, then your XML is wrong.

    Post back after you have tested your own XML using virtual brain (do not test in your car YET lol)

    I mean that the value are changing when I press each button( I see them in the program change, tell me it hooked up the right way) before when I ran the program, if I pressed the button, it would take several pushes to get to the lower values of each button. Now when I hit the button, one press it get to the value.

    Once I 'm finished with the xml file, do I place it in the MDX program folder, or do I remove the current xml config file and replace it with the one I created?

    From 2K1 in a previous post "If the file isn't is the MDX root directory as explained in a bagillion places, then the program will not even know it exists. MDX only monitors its directory. And it only monitors for the file FusionConfiguration.xml. Any other name, it wont care, it wont read it. If it doesnt read the file, it might as well not even be there. Considering you didnt setup any graphics in your file, a white screen is what you get. If you notice the graphics section is completely blank, therefore the graphics on the screen are completely blank"

    Yes the files has to be in the MDX folder. Rename the current one if you do not want to lose it.

    okay I renamed the current xml file, and I put the one I created in the mdx directory folder. Then I open the mdx program, do I inter values anywhere? what next, I just have the fusion control center background skin, no buttons on the screen. And also have the virtual brain skin on the screen. When I press my key send, nothing happens. do I have to inject values or something in the virtual brain?

    Yes. the same way you tested the previous XML when you got all the AAAAAAA.

    Add value to the virtual brain (try different values to test all keypresses)

    Open an notepad and see if the presses happen just as it did with the previous XML test you did
