Boating specific plugin
To all those out there,
I want to get a plugin created for RR that has a very specific boating purpose.
So I ask all my fellow mp3Car friends to help/assist/guide me through this process.
I'm willing to take this upon myself, but feel since I'm not a coder I will need a lot of guidance, no not Iguidance.
Here is the idea:
Do I start with RRFusion ?
and I would probably want to also have a DFX5 skin since that's what I use, so John/Blue, I hope you guys can help me out.
everything you want to do can be done with RRFusion and RR. No additional plugin is necessary. Do you have a fusion brain? not sure which sensors you could use in your case but RRFusion will definitely do the job.
I do have an older FB, but will be getting a v6 when they are available. I need to purchase the frequency to voltage sensor boards for the tachometers. Analog inputs for the drive and tab readings, voltage divided from 12v. I have temp sensors also.
I'll download RRFusion and start checking it out.
i am willing to help with this if you're still working on it.
BoatPC Skin for DFX5
Ok, this is far from a completely working skin, but it is a good start :)
The sliders use "$StarboardTab$", "$StarboardDrive$", "$PortTab$" and "$PortDrive$" as the variables. If you get the information from the Fusion Brain into the variables, they will work.
The speed works, and if you switch to KPH in the RR settings, the label will show KPH instead of MPH.
Here is a screen capture, and the skin files:
