Hi Juan,


I think this thread is probably one of the best resources on the subject:

I recommend you give that thread a good read through.  It will probably cause you to have more specific questions, but when you have them, post away!

P-ROC / P3-ROC / Re: Windows drivers for PROC

Thanks, I now have them.

But for some reason my desktop PC can not see the P-ROC when trying to run a game in Mission Pinball Framework.

My laptop is fine, its very odd as I have tried everything I know but still I can not get it working on this PC.

Hi! my name is Juan, i come from Spain.

First, sorry for my english, is very very bad. :|

i had spent months looking for make a pinball, but, i have many doubts.

I want to start easily as possible, and, after, increase the difficult.

i have been many years programming account programs in delphi, and i think i dont have problem to learn a new software for this, but, the "physical" i dont know nothing.

This, I think, start with...

A white panel with two flippers, two bumpers and two slingshot, and, start with the computer to connect this, and sum points and controller the number of the ball... start and end game... (for example).

but, if is good this way.... how can i do it?

I bought the flippers and the power supply, but, i dont know how connect all, and, the best important, i dont know what can i need to buy for connect and start with the programming.

What do you think?

Thanks in advance!

If you need the FTDI drivers, they're available on the FTDI download page.  I haven't used Windows in a while so I can't give you specific instructions, sorry.

Other Software / Re: Python IDE recommendations?

I have decided to switch to PyCharm:

Although WingIDE was still great, its development seemed stagnant and falling behind PyCharm's.

PyCharm has a much bigger team behind it and has a more dynamic and modern UI. It has great automatic code inspection & automatic fixing. Version control integration is miles ahead of Wing. In all respects if feels like this IDE is trying to help you write the best possible code.
The only thing I don't like about PyCharm so far is you can't switch between various open windows/projects if you have a popup open.

The free PyCharm Community Edition is great for P-ROC development, the only thing that would be nice to have that's in the Professional Edition is the Python Profiler but that just interprets cProfile results anyway.

Here's a podcast episode about PyCharm. I do enjoy the other episodes of this podcast as well btw.
