    Hope I fixed it. Was to do with the way the RRK8055.ini was read. I used a vb class for this which crashed the dll during the init of the board. Don't know why I did not have this problem in version 1.4.0

    Just download the zip file from the link in post #1. It has all files in there

    :)

    307SW_NLD, just got my board home..
    Installed their soft. Works perfect, all functions, all inputs/outputs.

    D-loaded your last version 2.0.1 of the plugin then copied your inlcuded 2 files in the RR folder. (DLL and INI file)

    Next, registered the RRK8055.DDL inside the RR folder.
    Here is the result when i am loading the relays skin:


    Bottom line, works perfect in RR, but i have not managed to make it work with your 2.0 version. Only this 2.0.1 works...
    Have some questions for you though...
    1. What do you want me to test to see if it work as you wish?
    2. Is there a chance to have the position of the sliders shown?
    like you did here:


    Can i do this?

    Can anyone please give me a printscreen with the CalculateAnalogButton ?
    I need just for the resistors under 50K ...
    I have no chance to see XLS files...and i have a perfect working sterwheel controller to use...

    Tkank you.

    Please redownload the 2.0.1 version of the plugin. The sliders are now included.

    The fact your screenshot is showing labels is proof enough that it now works. Thanks!

    How can I help you with the calculation of the steering wheel buttons. Do you have the resistor values of each button?

    Sorry to say but with the new 2.0.1 archive nothing works anymore. No matter what i press, a female voice start to talk and that is all..

    Later edit:
    Fixed. Me stupid...
    In the last archive the X,RRK8055 comand is not in the skin. I think i will have it in the menu.skin from now on...
    BTW, the sliders works perfect. Tkank you.

    Can i make a list with the resistor values i have on the controller?

    I think you will have to use a multimeter or Ohmmeter to get the resistor values from the buttons of your car. Or you could attach it to the board and read the values on the analogin (use the test skin). Be sure that the voltage of the analogin does not exceed 5 volts. Start with a high resistor value as Rv (see schematics a couple of posts back) . Make a note of the highest value you get when pressing the buttons and change Rv until it is that button with value has a reading closest to 255.

    btw what car do you have and might it be possible to find the values on the internet? Or ask the dealer nicely? If you have the values I can feed them into my excel sheet.

    Hope this helps.

    The steerwheel controller it's a SONY RM-X2S not a OEM car one.
    Here it comes, measured on the connector (a regular "stereo" 3,5mm jack) when the buttons pressed:

    OFF = 0.00 Ko
    SOURCE = 2.2 Ko
    MUTE = 4.4 Ko
    LIST = 6.5 Ko
    SEEK UP = 8.8 Ko
    SEEK DOWN = 12.1 Ko
    VOL UP = 16.8 Ko
    VOL DOWN = 23.6Ko
    SEL = 33.5 Ko
    MODE = 48.4 Ko

    Shift (shortcircuit) this button i cannot find it...
    looking inside there, is only one button that is totally different from the others, being an actual switch (like the digital inputs on the k8055 board) the rest of the buttons are on the pcb actually.

    The original schematics for this controller it's here:



    Also, i will use an external voltage source(LM7805) so the +5V stabilized should not be a problem.
    But, is not possible to use the k8055 board voltage? I thought there is a +5V...

    Ok, this is the output of the excel sheet.

    CALCULATE ANALOGIN VALUE

    Vin 5
    R2 10000
    Variance 7

    R1 Vout Analog Low High Overlap
    Rv 0 0 5.00 255 248 262
    R1_2 2200 2200 4.10 209 202 216 No
    R1_3 2200 4400 3.47 177 170 184 No
    R1_4 2200 6600 3.01 154 147 161 No
    R1_5 2200 8800 2.66 136 129 143 No
    R1_6 3300 12100 2.26 115 108 122 No
    R1_7 4700 16800 1.87 95 88 102 No
    R1_8 6800 23600 1.49 76 69 83 No
    R1_9 10000 33600 1.15 58 51 65 No
    R1_10 14800 48400 0.86 44 37 51 No

    R2 needs to be placed between analog in and ground and is 10KOhm.

    The menu part of the RRK8055.ini would then look like this:

    [MENU]
    ; Settings for digital inputs NORMAL, LONG, SWITCH, MULTIPLEX, MULTIPLEX_LONG, NONE
    BIT0=NORMAL
    BIT1=NORMAL
    BIT2=NORMAL
    BIT3=NORMAL
    BIT4=NORMAL
    ; Road Runner Screen: 1 = Default others are <name>.skin
    Menu1=DEFAULT
    ;Menu2=MENU.SKIN
    ; Settings for analog input 0=not active 1=active
    ANALOG1=1
    ANALOG2=0

    [DEFAULT]
    AnalogButton1=EXIT
    AnalogButton1Long=
    AnalogButton2=AUDIO
    AnalogButton2Long=
    AnalogButton2=MUTE
    AnalogButton2Long=MUTE
    AnalogButton2=LIST
    AnalogButton2Long=
    AnalogButton2=SEEK+
    AnalogButton2Long=
    AnalogButton2=SEEK-
    AnalogButton2Long=
    AnalogButton2=VOL+
    AnalogButton2Long=
    AnalogButton2=VOL-
    AnalogButton2Long=
    AnalogButton2=SELECT
    AnalogButton2Long=
    AnalogButton2=MODE
    AnalogButton2Long=

    [MENU_ANALOG]
    AnalogButton1=255
    AnalogButton2=209
    AnalogButton3=177
    AnalogButton4=154
    AnalogButton5=136
    AnalogButton6=115
    AnalogButton7=95
    AnalogButton8=76
    AnalogButton9=58
    AnalogButton10=44
    AnalogButtonVariance=7

    Off course the commands in the configuration is something you decide yourself.

    About the use of the 5 volt off the board itself. The 5 volt on the board is supplied through the USB port and is limited by the USB specification. If you draw too much current from the port the board would stop working. It would be safer the supply your own voltage. But the extra power drawn for the steering control is minimal so I think it should work.

    Success!
