Re: Reverse Engineering the Force Feedback Pro

I have the .hex file attached here. This makes all the original buttons 1-8, appear as 9-16 when the shift button is pressed. Of course credit goes to jaffa225man for the original shift implementation which I simply added on to. If you wanted to use buttons 17-24, you'll wire buttons to pins PB7, PD...

Re: Reverse Engineering the Force Feedback Pro

Hi xforce, I don't know if you still need this but, this is from my notes when I rewired my FFBPro. The first column is the mainboard pin, #1 is the pin closest to the joystick sensor. hope this helps. thanks, this really helps a lot, because now I've seen that my list was completely wrong I don't ...

Re: Reverse Engineering the Force Feedback Pro

Hi, I'm trying to resolder my FFB pro's cable to a new gameport connector but I don't know which color belongs to which pin of the db15 connector, does anyone here know and could tell me?

Re: Reverse Engineering the Force Feedback Pro

On the main webpage of the project it says that it has been tested on War Thunder. Does anyone have any information on who tested it. It isn't working for me, but the joystick works using the ForceText.exe program. I've tested on WT, linux and windows. ForceFeedback doesn't seem to work. I have no ...

Re: Reverse Engineering the Force Feedback Pro

Hi all, does anyone know how to turn on serial debugging in the code? so far I've been looking in debug.c, I've set volatile uint8_t gDebugMode = 4; but nothing shows up in the serial terminal. I even tried LogTextLf() to print something from the main loop, but nothing prints. EDIT: nevermind, I fig...

Re: Reverse Engineering the Force Feedback Pro

So things are stalled on the hardware side, I'm still waiting for replacement switches and other parts to arrive. In the meantime, I've played around with the code, and incorporated jaffa225man's fix to enable shift. I also added 16 extra buttons, so I can connect up to 8 switches to the remaining p...

Re: Reverse Engineering the Force Feedback Pro

Yes, I understood what you were saying, and anyway I did swab the axes sensor while I had the stick open. I believe the axes sensor is clean, as the signal is clean and smooth when I move the stick without blocking the grip sensor, or when I disconnect FFB power entirely. However, when I turn on ff...

Re: Reverse Engineering the Force Feedback Pro

By jittering, I don't mean the shaking from FFB. Even when completely centered, holding the stick steady, no forces. There seems to be noise on all the axes, including throttle and twist, when I cover the photosensor. Take my fingers off the photosensor, and everything quiets down. This happens eve...

Re: Reverse Engineering the Force Feedback Pro

The trigger switch is different, and I wasn't able to replace it yet. ... I noticed that axes have some jittering with FFB on. It's noticeable when you alternately cover/uncover the IR sensor on the grip. Could this be a wiring issue, interference perhaps? You might try some contact cleaner on the ...

Re: Reverse Engineering the Force Feedback Pro

I managed to find some time this evening to redo my wiring. I had to open up the joystick again and replace the wires I used last time. Some of the wires had snapped, I guess I cut a bit too hard when I was stripping them. This time, I used a Cat5E cable to wire up 8 of the 10 pins, the color coding...

Re: Reverse Engineering the Force Feedback Pro

Thanks for the replies. Yeah I found out that I forgot to place enough wires on my breadboard. I won't have time to get back to it until this weekend, but I checked the code, and it does seem that rapid blinking is because the Teensy couldn't get a connection to the joystick during initialization.

Re: Reverse Engineering the Force Feedback Pro

I'll just address the questions I think I can answer... Question 2: Can I get this working without the 12v power, at least initially? I plan on getting the sensors/buttons working first, before the FFB. However, if the code or the board itself requires the 12v parts to work, then I'll have to impro...

Re: Reverse Engineering the Force Feedback Pro

Hi all, I dug out my Sidewinder FFB from my parent's house this last weekend, after being in a closet since around 1999. Googling around led me to the google-code site, the github and this forum. I was planning to do a headtracking project, before I dug this joystick out, so I already have a Teensy2...
