Have you tried it like I said in the other thread?

I only need to jog 1 axis and I need to use a foot pedal, therefore I do not want to buy a Joystick and rip it apart if it can be done with a standard parallel port or with one of the digital inputs on my G-rex

Thanks

Read reply # 4 in the thread you posted yesterday. It tells you how to do it with the G100 or a parallel port. Only the first sentance is about the gamepad. I have quoted it here for you. You will have to go to the thread to see the screen shots.

OK here is wht you do to set a button up as jog. In config, ports and pins, inputs, oem triggers, these are the pins you will use. Go to config, system hot keys and assign the button you wired the OEM codes you want. I have attached a few screen shots to help.

Ok, saw the joystick and dismissed the rest, Sorry

2 more questions
1  If I am using the Parallel port and OEM trigger 1 is set to pin 10 where do I hook up the other side of a 2 pole switch ? (Pin 10 and ? )

2 How do I reference digital input #1 in the OEM triggers, I know I hook the the switch to Digital Input #1 and Ground

Lastly what was the 3rd screen capture for, where is that and what is it used for ?


Thanks
