"Hope this heps."
Yes & no !

Yes...as I get good info that I'll try for the new DLL, and thank you for it

As for setting up my joystick movement, I'm afraid I did not explain my self clear !
I know we can set the pct of jogging in the plugin config table in %.
As for the R-axe, isn't it pre-set at only 30% ? so, if I set this on at 50%, it will be 50% of that 30% preset !?!
A - How my I overwrite this 30% Z-axe pre-set to say, 80% or 100% ?
B - on the other hand, If I choose the R-axe option in the config, I get 100% vs a preset 30 %....but the down side, it will only function if I move my Rumblebad joystick side to side, not up & down ?..., as I tried to explain, when I use this option, I have to move the Z-joystick ONLY side to side vs up & down to get my z to travel !!

Hope I'm "clear-er" on my present worries !
Thks...  ;)
Any way I ( or you) may correct this unpleasant situation ?!

as any Logiteck rumble pad users reported issue installing your new version ?!
I tried ( in March plugin folder, replacing the existing dll) and.....well, to my surprise, nothing works, meaning, my Rumblepad joysticks did not make ANYTHING axes move ?!?!
Put back the old dll....all came back ??!!
Any ideal what's up ?!

I use it for a router CNC !
Again, is it my rumblepad or ...??...when I use my Z stick ( right joystick) to make my Z move up & down, it will only be moving with left to right stick moves ( I've set it up on the Z-axe selected, not the R axe in the config setup ).
If I use the R-axe option in set up, it's ok, meaning, up & down stick makes my Z up & down as expected ?
I'd run R....but hate the slow ( 30%) fixed setup !!!

Can I....either...over right the 30% on the R-axe....or, do something about the situation on the Z-axe with thr R-axe option ?!

Thanks, later

Thks Gerry....but !! [ had to ;-)..]

Why once I do just that, click the save offset button and then exit, Mach still ask through this dialog box....Fixture save?

I feel this may be redundant question, but after some search, can’t find answer to my question !

Is there any way I can have the fixture changed saved just like when exiting Mach where the FIXTURE CHANGED dialog box asking “fixture save?” question…..without exiting / closing Mach?!?

General Mach Discussion / Safe_Z setup…literature please !?
« on: September 21, 2013, 01:03:23 PM »
Hi all….
Is there any literature on the Safe_Z setup config ??
I’m getting some “puzzled” and confusing ( confusing in relations to my experience tweaking Mach3 !! ).
I would be grateful to read a throughout detail literature on the in & out of these….simple options !?
Tks, Robert  ;)

Another one who is not sharp !
I must of read it zillon times, but never really saw it (IJ mode that is )
Now, timid to admit, got it  :-[
Thanks anyway, Later

I’m getting some glitch too.....
I’m Getting : “ Radius to end of arc differs from radius to startLine” ...and it’s NOT so, based on the drawing !?!
How & where is this “ IJ ” mode so I can try to change it to see if this will help me ??
Thanks in advance.
Robert   ;)

Bonjour Brett,

This is exactly what I wanted to read. Is it best to run Mach3 on a stand alone?
You’re telling me that your set up & way is for peace of mind !
But just another question out of this, where I lacked clarity;
 Why aside of the risk and other bugs & viruses ?
 Does it make it better, faster & more efficient… ?
Or just safer ?!!
