    The words scale with the size of the button, all buttons operate (except output 13 which never worked). The dialogs work. When you make a button for output 10, it renames it fly digital output, like the one on the left.

    Any other features hidden in there I can test? ???

    Added the #4 right now.

    The text scaling is the default, but you can specify the size to anything by adding size="20" or something to that effect into the "text" tag's attributes. Will be an option in the GUI soon enough.

    All the buttons' events are tied together. So if you have an output like for #10 that renames a button based on the output state, then you can add 100 buttons all for that output, and they will all automatically change.

    There are some more hidden features, but they are not completely stable yet. One that is a little fun is moving the buttons right now. The Y-axis is inverted right now unfortunately and it doesn't save it forever yet. Click and drag (left click) around a button while in config mode and it should quasi-work.

    Ok, y-axis inversion is fixed.

    Ok, I'm back up and running, stereo is in and working (mostly) now I just need to get the FB busy controlling the car! I've got wires for a whole bunch of features just running to the computer in the dash, not doing anything

    Back to Beta!

    Testing the new FB v6 I received today I have the following results from hyperterminal.
    Most digital outputs work, #17 never turns on, #26 is always on with power or usb, #31 never turns on. The rest are fine, they turn on into a blinking mode with D:xx:1 command.

    Analog inputs have no response. a? or A? both reply with 14 channels of 0.0, even when I try the provided temp sensor, or a direct jumper from the +++ to the ain+ channel. No response at all. Jumper causes a little bit of feedback on the board, some leds light up dimly.

    Tried my beta unit again, analog inputs work, temp sensor does NOT.

    I think there is a short in the wiring though, as I can get large variances in voltage reading by moving the cable near the pin header. Even when it seems to work, I can't get the reading to change with temperature changes...

    So, there are my initial responses. What say you?

    Oh, and the Fuse GL program doesn't like the new one much. Version from 4-19-2011.

    #17 is always off, there is no transistor under there to make it turn on.
    #26 is always on
    #31 (the far right one) does have the capability to turn on, but never does. It will be a firmware update to sort that out.

    This is true for all V6 right now.

    I changed the code a bit for the analogue inputs, and it works with the regular usb communication (FuseGL) and not with the COM port right now. That will be a firmware update very soon.

    Blinking mode if only powered by USB correct? That just means there isn't enough USB juice. But you will notice it runs much cooler.

    To test the AIN's you must use FuseGL right now. They are much more responsive now.

    Blinking while connected with a +12 supply. That's twice that you called out my USB bus, so I'll give specs and you can tell me!! (jk!) It's an ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3, and I can plug in every usb device I own without fault.... HMmph.

    I'll try out the new Fuse GL, how do I use the inputs in that program, and what should I do to test the temp sensor? Whats the pinout on that thing?
