    was it difficult to bind the functions to the centrafuse commands?

    how exactly do you set up the controls for the powermate?

    i'm wondering how difficult it would be to set up the powermate to control road runner with Iphone skin.


    I don't quite understand where you set it up in windows....

    It's it kinda like when you set up controls in a game and you press a button with the keyboard or mouse to start the new function input, then you do the function with your powermate?

    when windows is booted you'll see an icon in the lower corner where the system clock is. you double click that and the setup for the griffin pops up, there are Gloabl(universal) settings you can do or an application specific settings you can do. its real easy to setup.

    thanks, that video showing the driver in action helps.


    the only problem i see is that since I don't know what type of key stokes are binded in road runner skins, then I think I will have to do some work making the powermate work in Road Runner.

    what a great looking item though...

    I like the idea of getting two of them.

    Any idea when they may be back in stock? I'm looking to make a large order soon and as I'm in Australia I'd rather bundle everything together in one order to save myself some costs

    Thanks

    It also works well with girder for added functionality. There is a plugin available on the Promixis website.

    Interesting, I don't think so - I am trying to have it press cntrl - alt - del for me so if I can end something that freezes up on me. It will take a lot of keyboard shortcuts, but I can't seem to get it to take that.

    I was wrong, you can hybernate, it is an option. However the cntrl alt delete and alt tab isnt working for me.
