Re: Keys work, plunger does not

Hi,

Make sure that you have the plunger plugged into a USB2.0 port if available. If you don't have one a USB2.0 hub into a USB3.0 port will work.

Not all USB 3.0 controllers used on the mainboard of the computer are universal for USB2.0 for some reason.

Re: Zeb Plunger plunger tunctionality not working

Hi Arngrim, Have you tried just the plunger itself without any harnesses plugged into it? All units are tested as I assemble them so the z axis was working when I shipped it out. can you send me a pic of the circuit board to [email protected].com? I'd like to make sure that there isn't any damage to th...

Re: plunger doesnt pull to the end in fx3

I'm assuming that in the control panel applet for the gamepad settings you are getting full draw registering in the scales at the top? If yes then the issue is with calibrating the axis in the xbox360ce software. I haven't looked at that in some time as I don't officially support PBFX3 installations...

Re: PC hangs on startup/reboot unless Plunger is unplugged.

The issue is that the plunger is a partial keyboard. When the computer is booting the plunger already has booted and appears as a keyboard but doesn't respond in the expected manner. This causes Windows to search for a matching device and causes the hang. The solution is to turn off USB charging in ...

Re: No solenoid activation during gameplay

LOL... I wish there were a bunch of guys here, it would definitely give me some more time.

Glad to hear that you got it going, hopefully it's clear sailing for you from here forward. It might be a good time to clone your drive so that you have a backup.

Re: No solenoid activation during gameplay

The best approach is to install DOF and the backglass server (using mjr's R3+++ is the easiest manner as it does it all for you) and then go to the dofconfigtool on vpuniverse.com and generate your files. Unzip the files that you get from there and put the directoutput_30 (or whatever name you downl...

Re: No solenoid activation during gameplay

I'll need to know which version the kit is as Monster Arcades has been buying kits for several years and through several iterations.

V2 Used a pacled64

V3 uses my own boards (ledwiz compatible).

Re: Nudge stops working sometimes

It shouldn't be doing that. The way the plunger works (with regard to nudging) is that it takes a constant sampling of the accelerometer position and reports it back to the computer unless the plunger rod is in motion. When the rod is in motion it stops reporting the accelerometer readings and repor...

Re: Pause Button in VPX

In VPX specifically I would think that you would need to make sure that the Disable ESC Key box is not ticked in the preferences screen.

There are a few threads on getting pause to work, it usually is controlled by the frontend ..... https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?showtopic=43064
