I'm out of OEM Triggers
« on: February 06, 2010, 05:26:11 PM »
I used up all 15 of the oem triggers and would like to know if it's possible to use brains and pokeys to add more trigs.
My problem is I can't figure out how to make mach see the inputs from the pokeys.
Is there a mod address assigned to every pokeys pin or only the analog pins (43-46)?
The brain I am trying to do is basically:
Pokeys pin x.....No op pass through.....Button press

Can this be done outside the 4 analog pins?

Thanks in advance,
Marc

Could you only assign hot key to the pokeys input.

Actually, I'm trying to set jog increments with external buttons and as far a I am aware, there is no hotkey for that function.
Thanks for the reply

I set up a small macro and use a single button to cycle through 5 increments. Would that work for you?

That's probably what I'm going to end up doing as well.
I  hoped that I could do it using brains because I've already wired three rotary switches that will have to be undone/removed from my control panel......bummer

yes you can extend the stuff ad-nausium......

in the "PoKeys.set on the pokeys page, with the combination of the poKeys config, you can assign your inputs,
to trigger User LEDs, in a range (2 ranges of inputs possible).
Then In Brians, look at the Uled that represents that PK Pin, do a no op, then to a button press.
IF the button priess you want is NOT in Brians, that is ok, cause you can use MacroPump to with the DoButton(*********)
OEM code to press buttons from the macro pump.

Scott,
I just wanted to report back and say "Thanks". I got it working following your instructions and I would have never figured it out without your input.
Thanks again,
Marc
