    Hacked $10 RC Car

    Hi Erco, 4 years later, and i'm looking to buy some of these 4pin sensors to tinker with. Better late than never ;-) I notice the most popular ones these days (2019) are only 3 pin, which use an LM393 (comparitor) instead of a 555 oscillator to drive the IR driver LED. Maybe these aren't as...

    Mouse without Borders

    Yep, this is a great (powerful) program, I stumbled across it quite some years ago, I'm certain it was waay before microsoft got their paws on it ;-)

    Help please, with Rotary Encoder (code) from 08m to 40X2...

    That's a good point, certainly worth trying to eliminate what's really going on. FYI: i have wired the IDC16 in a unique way so that the D.0 to D.7 bits are all wired along 1 row of the IDC16 connector. The opposite row of the IDC16 has 4 GND's, 2x5v's and 2x 3.3v's. This means that EVERY D.x...

    Help please, with Rotary Encoder (code) from 08m to 40X2...

    No probs, i'll keep dabbling and try to note some kind of common pattern that makes the problem arise. On a side note, i think i mentioned this earlier in this thread (or another of my threads), but my 2 encoders are mounted in a plastic enclosure along with 4 analog pots. The 4 pots are...

    Help please, with Rotary Encoder (code) from 08m to 40X2...

    Hmmmm, sadly today i discovered the full code (post #44) is also buggy, where A and B sometimes affect each other. I only noticed it when i added in the code section from above (post #45), but as i managed to rem out every line of post #45, i noticed the original main code still bugs out after...

    slow editor

    Interesting, i wonder if the problem occurs in Win10 'Home' as well as 'Pro'? or do we simply have to rollback a few updates until we find a faster version to run PE correctly. It'd be nice if we can get the Win10 users to provide their version/build number of Win10, so i can find a definite...

    slow editor

    Wow, i feel for you guys suffering this problem. For the record i only run Win7 machines & laptop with PE 6.1.0.0 and they never have a problem. It seems win10 (updates) has caused a major problem with PE ??? I wonder if there's a .ini file somewhere in the PE folder(s) that you can edit out...

    What are the maximum limits of peeking/poking address in SLOTS ??

    OK, i'm working on a memory map to clarify things for myself. Some clarifications please: For 28X2/40X2 chips, Is TABLE memory (256 bytes) located at the 0 to 255 locations in the shared program code area? Assuming i used up all 256 bytes in a large TABLE, is the program code officially then...

    Help please, with Rotary Encoder (code) from 08m to 40X2...

    HI Hippy, Yes, all wiring is correct as i'm using the exact same encoders/box as used in previous code versions when it all worked solid. I've actually reverted back to some earlier code (for 2 encoders) and re-enabled the LED displays etc which is working solid, but i think there were...

    What are the maximum limits of peeking/poking address in SLOTS ??

    Ahhh, ok, so there are only 256 General bytes (includes 56 variables) and 1024 scratchpad bytes shared across all 4 slots in a 40X2? I misread the info and thought it was 256 & 1024bytes 'per slot'. This means there is 4096 bytes 'per slot' for code (with the option to deduct 256 bytes of table...

    Help please, with Rotary Encoder (code) from 08m to 40X2...

    Hi Hippy, OK, i have rem'ed out the following sections of my code, so it's basically just the rotary encoder/maths doing its thing: ;################################################################## select case countb case 0 : gosub blankit case 1 : gosub blankit : ROW_1 = _F0...

    Help please, with Rotary Encoder (code) from 08m to 40X2...

    Yes, i was wondering about 'where' i placed my display code processing in the main loop and whether i'm missing something by 1 cycle etc. I'll remove my code sections and just focus on your main loop wih equations and monitor the terminal for any funny changes that i saw today. I'll send my...

    Help please, with Rotary Encoder (code) from 08m to 40X2...

    Hi Hippy, OK, so both encoders seem to be working to whatever 'N' i choose, based on your recent revised equations and symbol definitions. However, on the odd occasion, sometimes moving Encoder A will affect the values being processed/displayed for Encoder B. FYI: Encoder A is adjusting the...

    Help please, with Rotary Encoder (code) from 08m to 40X2...

    Ahh, thanks, my brain was hurting ;-) Although i did manage to correct "MAX_B" to "MAXB" and it works now ;-) Thanks again Hippy, I greatly appreciate your efforts.

    Help please, with Rotary Encoder (code) from 08m to 40X2...

    Hi Hippy, I changed to "dirB" and it seems fine as an endless counter 0 to N and repeating 0 to N....(and N to 0, repeating). For the other option, to stop at N (stop at 16 and stop at 0), What do i need to change the equation to now? I tried "countB = countB + dirB + dirB - 1 Max MAXB" which...

    Help with PushButtons on ADC input?

    Yep, i was thinking about making R1 either 2k2 or 4k7 during testing, but i wanted to play with what numbers and ranges i would get, so it's noted to be tested ;-)

    Help with PushButtons on ADC input?

    Haha, cheeky. Yep, i planned to add in combo patterns, but i thought the Select..case would just ignore any values that i haven't defined in my mapping. I will test to prove it anyway "just in case" ;-)

    Help with PushButtons on ADC input?

    Thanks for that, geez, i'm pretty close on the resistor/button network, that's funny ;-)

    Extra PICAXE Wizards

    Hi @nick12ab, FANTASTIC FANTASTIC FANTASTIC software to simplify a lot of stuff we all do. I've only discovered this software in Oct 2019 and noticed that version 1.13 was back in 2013 and nothing released since. Is this project officially dead now? or did it migrate elsewhere or something?

    Help with PushButtons on ADC input?

    Hi All, I'm looking to replace a bunch of pushbuttons on 8 bits of a port by simply using a resistor divider into 1 pin (ADC input). This free's up a load of pins for other uses. My drawing shows what i plan to do, but are other people using a better approach? In my drawing, assuming NONE...
