Just a quick THANK YOU to DaOld Man!
« on: January 20, 2015, 09:53:08 pm »
Thanks!   :notworthy:  I've been reading through a lot of threads on setting up some automated workings, in specific a servo run monitor rotation.  Following your advice and using your wonderful startcom MaLa plugin I have my micro Maestro controller telling my Hitec servo to rotate to the correct orientation at the start of each game.  I believe I now have the hard part working, I just need to build the rest, only have it sitting on the table at the moment  but was so tickled that I got it to work I had to post something!  Thanks also to everyone else who posted their servo projects without those threads I wouldn't even have known to try this and be having this much fun  :applaud:  I've attached my little batch file (name changed to .txt so could upload) just in case anybody cares.

Already started the build thread   http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,143354.0.html

Edit:  I've updated the servo.txt file so it now has the correct parameters (at least for my setup) and has an acceleration parameter to slow the servo down a bit.

I would not have bothered with automation if it weren't for DaOld Man's Mala plugins.

Hear hear.  My rotator setup is still going strong and I literally haven't opened the hood in years. 

Old Man(s) rule.
