Driver Boards / Re: PD-16 IDLEs between transfers using Arduino
« Last post by Gerry Stellenberg on June 26, 2017, 08:01:00 PM »
The documentation and the Arduino test sketch both mention 5 extra idles between transfers. The sketch also mentions a for-loop. The example doesn't show any loop or idles. Am I wrong?

The comments in the arduino sketch are saying that if you used a for-loop instead of the 5 explicit SPI.transfer calls, it would add an additional 5 IDLEs between cycle (to process the for-loop).  Just implementing the code as is gets you enough time between transfers without too much.  If you're using a faster device (ie. teensy), you may see different results.  Adjust accordingly.

Also, using the PD-16 with Arduino and pwm requires constant transfer of data right? I suppose I need a constant transfer for the watchdog to be operational too?

Constant transfers are necessary to properly tickle the watchdog yes, assuming you want to use the watchdog.  Dipswitch 6 disables watchdog functionality.  For PWM you need not write constantly.  Just write as often as you need to to change an output's state.

Btw. I mention Arduino but will use a teensy instead which is a bit faster.

Wow. I've been gone so long.
There is not much going on at the forum I see...
I'm starting up my project again.
I've a question though.

Mission Pinball Framework (mpf) / MPF Support forum
« Last post by jab on May 12, 2017, 03:52:25 PM »
Besides this forum, the MPF team also has dedicated forum over here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/mpf-users.

You can still ask questions about MPF here. Especially if your questions are P-Roc or P3-Roc related this might even not be the worst idea. The other forum might be better for questions which are less P/P3-Roc related (such as mode programming).

PyProcGameHD+SkeletonGame / Re: HD/VGA Pyprocgame -- new version on the horizon
« Last post by MOcean on March 29, 2017, 04:30:16 PM »
The SkeletonGame/PyProcGame/PyProcGameHD Windows installer has moved:

http://skeletongame.com/files/proc_env_installer_wHD.exe

This version (1.12) has been updated to pull files from SkeletonGame.com instead of the now defunct Dropbox public link.

Also you can find a fair amount of documentation at http://SkeletonGame.com
