    Fantastic work on this guys!

    Wow! I just read all 34 pages of this thread, to "catch up". What an amazing little board and software!

    I am very interested in integrating this into Road Runner in some fashion. I would rather use standard Road Runner Skins, and just send the commands through the DLL to the FB, verses embedding the application as an external app. Not that the app is not fantastic as it is, it would just allow a bit more customization. The ability to have indicators at the top of screens, buttons on different skins to control different things based on that skin ect.

    I snagged some VB code about 10 pages back, and have not had a chance to look at it yet. My thought being, if this can be controlled by VB6, it could very easily be added to the RR code and made 100% native.

    I am curious to see some of the flash gauges and such that will be developed around this as mentioned about 20 pages back I know absolutely nothing about programming in flash, but with the current flash gauges that take GPS speed, Altitude, Direction and turn that data into nice looking Speedometers, Altimeters and Compass ect, this should be quite easy to do with the digital/analog out data from the FB.

    Great work on this guys, and I think you will have a real winner on your hands when it is all completed, and word gets spread. There is nothing that even comes close to the amount of inputs and outputs this features anywhere near to this price range!

    2kToaster made a bunch of changes to the code and put it up only a few posts back from here. You may have missed it, I know after 'catching up' on 500 posts its possible.

    Another tease for people wanting the StreetDeck version. The digital and analog inputs are disabled because I haven't gotten them working yet, Im working on one thing at a time digital outputs seemed like a good place to start.

    Any questions, just ask...

    And yes it works with Fusion Brain, kind of...

    Thanks!

    The code has definately changed big time. I am not sure if that VB code will still work. We develop fast around here.

    But you can try it.

    That looks really good! Maybe the mp3car store will donate a copy of SD to me to try out your skin.

    that looks really good P3D4T0R I can't wait! Will the buttons be customizable to any extent as to what they do? can the text on them be changed? Say to write Lights or Right Front Window!

    The buttons wont be as customizable as the ones that are on the latest Fusion Brain program but they can be renamed and they can (will be able to) do everything that the buttons can do now.

    Ok, this being the case, is there a way through the DLL to communicate with the app running in the system tray? To send commands, and receive/poll information?

    After the DLL is registered, a way to call it is needed.

    Something like:
    Code:
    $FB = ObjCreate("CDDBControl.FusionBrain")
    $DigitalIn1 = $FB.NameOfFunction
    Where "NameOfFucction" is the name of the parameter internally to FB.

    I am not a programmer by any means, but I am pretty good at working stuff out if I have some sort of example to go by.

    Unfortunately its not that simple, the DLL is not a COM DLL so you cant just register it and try to interface with it. However, the way the program is it is possible to interface with it (I believe is what someone here is trying to do with roadrunner) the way you describe. I, on the other hand, have built a DLL which is supposed to be a COM server even though it doesn't work right which I am able to call from my StreetDeck code which in turn calls the DLL packaged with Fusion Brain, so Im almost rewriting the Fusion Control Center code to work with StreetDeck... its not hard its just time consuming and aggravating switching between 2 or 3 different types of code and making them work the same way.

    To answer your question yes you can do what you are asking about, no you cant do it the way you think, and finally I don't know how to do it because Im going a different way but Im sure we will be told when it is working properly.
