Good News, it works! I switched through just about every screen without a hitch! Thanks a bunch Sonic!
After seeing the progress being made here, I decided to knock the dust off my Fusion Brain (first Production Run) and tried this out.
Works great when it works. When RR has to load screens for the first time especially those switching external USB peripheral the brain switched off and back on during the transition. Switching from web to video shuts it off briefly 4/5 times (using internal video player). Leaving it on it locks up RR on average around the 3 hour point.
I will say this is a lot easier to integrate than the MDX configurator and FB skinning. Keep working on the bugs cause when this is stable its gonna be Outstanding!
The new dll fixed it!!!!!!!!!!!
thats great to hear. Sounds like it may already be stable (enough) :)
Break time! Been coding all weekend. I know you guys hate my crowded, busy screens, but I finally put RRTMS and RRFusion together on one screen; created momentary buttons for door locks, windows, sunroof, etc.; fusion starts with RR and initializes specific components (like shutting down my dreaded FM arial); and got my temp, voltage, and current sensors aligned.
One unexpected result of creating the momentaries is if I click the button repeatedly it will stay on that many times the set momentary, i.e., if its set for 1 second and I click the button 5 times - it'll stay energized for 5 seconds (gonna be great for the windows and sunroof).
Two issues have eluded me. How do I limit the number of decimal places get displayed for current and voltage, and how do I convert my car voltage to something readable by the FB and recalculate to display approximate actual voltage. Lastly, I'm missing the digital inputs - I'd like to have them set to trigger indicators for parking lights, headlights, foglights, and CCFL angel eyes.
I guess the next step will be integrating the Parking Sensors into this screen. he he he
I'll have to set up an .ini option for decimal places for all analog inputs, unfortunately i only have a temp and a photosensor so those are the only ones i've worked with so far in testing. Now that the core components are working i'll go ahead and throw in .ini options. No in regards to the digital inputs.. i gotta be honest.. i still dont understand what the heck they are lol. Can you explain how you are using a digital input in your setup. Is it just basically an indicator that something externally controlled is on or off? I'm clueless here
Think of the digital inputs as Boolean switches. When they see 5v they are on, at 0v they're off. All you'd need is a true/false output for each one that would switch an indicator in RR.
