This plugin allows volume control using a variable resistor or potentiometer connected to the PC's Joystick port. Hardware wiring is very simple & you can find out further details in this thread http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/hard...e-control.html Your potentiometer should be wired to the x-axis and calibrated in windows.
It also supports a single button wired to button 1. Behavior is configurable in the config file for Mute, Pause, Stop.
All configurables as follows:-
Max= 62556 <-- use the calibrate button to generate this
Min= 0 <-- use the calibrate button to generate this
pressType=Stop <-- valid values - Mute, Pause and Stop. Default Mute
mixerLine=Master <-- any valid RR mixer line. Defaults to Master
pollRate=200 <-- the rate at which the joystick is polled in milliseconds. Defaults to 50.
You can find the software here, and you can find the source code here.
can this be used to control anything besides volume? ideally to give a value based on a pot's position?
