We can provide high quality images of the board/sensors to anyone willing to help us out there. I will try to make this as detailed as possible for reference.
Now to help with your issues:
Identifying which software is esential, (just to get it to work).
Here is the installer program:
EXE (97,215Kb): http://www.fusioncontrolcentre.com/M...0Installer.exe
RAR (93,574Kb): http://www.fusioncontrolcentre.com/M...0Installer.rar
ZIP (94,925Kb): http://www.fusioncontrolcentre.com/M...0Installer.zip
Those links will never change, I just continue to update the file. Included in the installer is (a) The main MDX program that controls the Fusion Brain (b) the MDX Configurator program which will set up all your inputs, outputs, graphics, ect... (c) the MDX Updater which will continuously check for updates since it is technically still beta, and download the updates (c) the .NET 2.0 Redistributable package which is required for all of those programs to work since they are written in C# which is a .NET language (d) and the DirectX 9.0c redistribuatable package which is required for the main MDX program because the graphics is handled by DirectX now which is one of the major changes from Version 2 (Currently latest version on the website).
Also includes some sample skins, and importantly functions for all of our current sensors (including the thermometer).
Identifying the order of file installation
The current drivers are the Microsoft WinUSB Drivers:
ZIP (12,913Kb): http://www.fusioncontrolcentre.com/MDX/Drivers.zip
These drivers are compatible with Windows XP and Vista. It uses the WinUSB drivers, which came out last february after the release of Vista even. So if you have a new copt of Vista, then it should be a very fast install because all it has to do is register that the Fusion Brain is connected. However if you have Windows XP or Vista that came out between Summer 2006 and February 2007 you will need to install the WinUSB CoInstaller which these drivers do automatically. So the install will take longer. These drivers are very very generic Microsoft written drivers so you actually only need to install the big piece one time for the life of your operating system's install.
The software includes the dll files it needs already, so those hardware drivers and the installer package are all you need to go from the box to using it.
Identifying Files that needed to be modified (when, why and how)
Terminology consistancy - Multiple references to the "Hardware ID" - but what is really needed is the "Instance ID" ( that one ate up most of my install time)
Ok, now for the rest!
As for the LED speed crashing it, I have never heard of that before. Perhaps the timer value is set too high? Anyways, drop version 2. Download MDX. Version 2 is pretty much dead and will be abondonned as soon as this new configurator is finished.
For the temperature sensor, there is now a function for this in MDX. Just attach an analogue input to the function and put the output through a variable-set to output. Really easy now!
And if you need over 20-ish or 30-ish, then we need to order more from our manufacturer, which can take 2 to 4 weeks depedning how busy they are, or if any delays come up. For instance from our last sale, we ran out so we ordered more and it took about 3 weeks. We also offer volume discounts for large orders.
