    Integrate fusion brain commands into road runner buttons

    I don't really want to integrate an entire fusion brain skin into road runner. I just want to integrate some of the fusion brain buttons into the road runner skin file I already use. For instance I'm going to take the road runner button that currently says phone and rename it to "Garage." Then I'd like the road runner button "Garage" to activate the fusion brain button that triggers the relay that the garage door opener is hooked up to.

    Another thing I'd like to do is integrate the inside and outside temp onto the main menu of my road runner skin.

    Is something like this doable without using the entire fusion brain skin?

    Not currently.

    Since last October or November, I have been trying to get a COM object working for it to be possible. Its March now and it is still not working. I am working on it though.

    I pretty much have RoadRunner working for COM in XP and Vista. StreetDeck doesnt work though. And with RoadRunner there are some issues. When it is released, MDX will need to run in the system tray to interpret the COM commands.

    does the MDX beta allow the COM object or will that have to wait til final release?

    The COM object is not in any of the available software now. When it works, it will go in MDX, and it will just require a new EXE and a dll to be downloaded.

    Yeah. It's a simple relay. A really friggin cool relay .
    1. Tear garage door opener apart
    2. Find the two metal pieces you need to short to make the garge door open
    3. Solder really small wires too each one of these and then touch the tips of the wires together and make sure they open the garage door
    4. Hook these two wires up to a relay
    5. Program the brain to trigger the relay
    6. Life is good

    I'll actually use this once I can make a road runner button do this. Just a matter of time till that function is ready.
