    New To Fusion Brain

    Hey guys, i have a few questions. I have searched around but am still unclear on the answered. perhaps someone can clear this up for me.

    I just purchased the FB and would like some clarification on the following questions:

    1) I just want to use FB to use my steering wheel control to control Centrafuse. Can i program FB to send key presses to centrafuse without a centrafuse plugin?

    2) I have a 2008 Civic SI which uses a two wire resistive circuit (one is ground and the other fluctuates when the steering wheel buttons are pressed). How would i connect this two wire setup to FB? which wires goes to which pin?

    3) can i program longer button presses as well? for example, if i press and hold my steering wheel MODE button, can i trigger a diferrent key press?

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    BTW I will be using this on a MacMini running Bootcamp Windows XP SP3

    Awesome. thanks for the link, by any chance do you remember the voltages that were sent by each key?

    Do you have a workblog? i would love to see your project.

    Thanks alot for your help

    1. Yes, you can send to any program.
    2. Check the above tutorial.
    3. Yes, though it's a little complicated. You'd have to be familar with logic blocks.

    I am trying to send a keystroke to centrafuse (well really three keys at one time) when voltage between 4v and 6v is applied to analog input 0. I have tried MANY things and have looked through forums but i am getting so CONFUSED lol.. Can someone take a look at the code below and tell me what i am doing wrong?

    Thanks

    Code:
    <do function="Send Key to foreground" functionTargetID="centrafuse" vote_opinion="CTRL+SHIFT+C" vote_priority="Low">
    Change the vote to that and see if it works. This will blindly send the key to whatever application is ontop, which if you are using your frontend, should be CF.

    changing the vote did not work. How can i test to see if i have a defective unit?
    Can someone post thier working XML file so that i can compare the differences and try to narrow down my problem?

    Thanks to all for your help
