    where to start

    I bought my FB a couple of years ago and struggled. I have now come back to it and everything has changed.

    I have a carputer, and want to control winamp through buttonson my dash (volume, play, stop, rwd, ffwd(

    I have read through the tutorials but have a few questions first.


    1. Can i develop on my vista machine even though my carputer will is XP?
    2. do i still need to develop a skin, even though i don't need to see the output?
    3. can the volume control control master volume now (rather than winamp volume?)

    1 Should be no problem. I have a VB program I wrote on XP & works/edits fine in vista 64, can't use MDX on 64bit though. Next test is win7 32bit (quick trial did some wierd things, not sure if it was a problem or just something else goin on)
    2 nope, just make the logic do it all
    3. not sure, it's going to depend on how you are interacting from MDX->Winamp/windows (not sure if MDX can do that yet, VB could)

    also, when using the mdx i get told there are no fusion brains connected, does it not support the earlier versions of the brain?

    Make sure you specify brain version 3 in the config file.
    Thanks,

    that's a v3. You need to open the .xml and change the version.

    thanks, but i do not think i have got that far yet.

    my brain is powered, and linked to usb.

    i open "MDX configurator"
    and click on add brain
    the "brain form" pops up.
    and i click the magnifying glass next to ID.

    i then get an error message saying "no version 4 brains were detected" and "no version 3 brains were detected"

    fallen at first hurdle?

    hold on, no lights on the brain. and a puff of smoke from the 1 of the 2 smaller chips.

    i guess that's not good?
