Hi,
when you use the current plugin you doent need a brain. Easy to setup.
Whitch kind of Pokeys do you use? 55 or 56 ?

I use the 56U model

I've set the analog input in the config of mach3 and set the gain at 300% and it work well, but I have the same problem of led red blinking when I try to set it at 100%.
I've read about this brain to reset the feed override to 100% when the value is between 98% and 102% but it don't work.

What I can do?

Forget about the brain and under Mach3 go to Plugin control -> Pokeys Plugin.
Play with the Gain and the DROs you want (DRO 3 and 821 i think).
On your hardware make a jumper between 2 analog inputs. So you will map one input at DRO 3 and one at 821.
I hope it helps...

I tried to get it with a brain with no success. Look like it will not work with a brain.
Anyway, it will using the macropump.
No guarantee at all and at your own risk!
Map the analog input to a userdro instead of dro 821 ( FRO)
I used DRO1998.
check " use macropump " in general config.
content of macropump:

a = GetOemDro(1998)
If GetOemDro(1998) < 97 Or GetOemDro(1998) > 103 then
SetOemDro(821,a)
else
SetOemDro(821,100)
End If
If GetOemDro(1998) < 3  then
SetOemDro(821,0)
End If
End
