Re: Leostick Joystick? Yes, and here's how.

One other thing Drake250, I have seen standard windows HID controllers support 32 buttons plus a 8 position hat switch, which is really just another 8 buttons, so 40 in total.

Do you think that can be defined in the HID descriptor as well or is that not possible.

Cheers Tri.

Re: What is the trick to get windows 7 working with card

Thats Great Darkling, Good to hear.......... I know I was pretty harsh on these guys for this oversight but the least they could do is come in here and respond/address the issue. I really have not seen that as yet !! So I presume the problem still exists. "HELLO" .....anyone home there at Freetronic...

Re: Leostick Joystick? Yes, and here's how.

Hey Drake250, Well I finally got some code together & have made good use of your modified firmware, Thankyou so much. I thought I would post my code for anyone else to use that may be interested. Could I ask you a favour ? Is there any chance you could modify the firmware to enable all the Analogue ...

Re: Leostick Joystick? Yes, and here's how.

I got it working great with your second post, thanks so much. Is there any chance you can post the 32 button example, that would be of benefit to me. I think you are quite right, windows only goes up to 32 buttons per joystick, I don't think I have seen any controllers with more than that available....

Re: Leostick Joystick? Yes, and here's how.

Thanks for the explanation Drake, I will down load these later files and have another play. I did manage to locate the original files in the locations you mentioned but was not sure what else to do, I will give it a try. I am currently building a flight simulator, I am after a mother load of switch ...

Re: Leostick Joystick? Yes, and here's how.

Hi Drake250, I am interested in these modified joystick files.

I am new to the arduino world & know how to load a sketch but can you explain exactly what to do with these modified files to turn the leostick into a joystick, sorry it is just not clear what to do in your post.

Cheers Tri.

Re: missing com port

See this thread in regards to you the com port not working under device manager in normal mode. There seems to be confusion about the device which shows up on a com port for programming breifly during boot, & then shows up as a defferent device & com port once running in normal mode. Most people see...

Re: What is the trick to get windows 7 working with card

Well thanks for wasting hours of my Time FreeFark***Tronics....... Why don't you test the drivers & the product & your install tutorials before distribution, some quality control is in order here. Thanks to a SteveCares, Thank God Steve does care, cause Freetronics doesn't. I finally got my leostick...
