[quote="Tehrasha"][quote="kenyee"] While chords may be possible with the 5000, I dont know if it is exactly practical. :) Are you able to get all 10 buttons to work?[/quote][/quote] True...You'd have to have super big hands to get it to work one-handed :lol: You could shift w/ the other hand though....

[quote="vputz"] First, try replacing orbotron_translator.h in the libraries/orbotron directory with the one from the git repository (I'd attach it here, but I can't seem to attach any source files). ...

[quote="vputz"]It could be I've forgotten something about calibration for a 5k and they report a different range or something[/quote] That's why I was hoping to try the Linux drivers to find out what whether it's your code that reads values or whether it really is broken.

Re: New run of orbshields

[quote="vputz"]If you got one of the "production" boards with four holes in a row behind the USB connector, those four holes should be (top to bottom, looking with the USB connector on the left): +5V, D-, D+, GND .... So one thing you could try is manually send it the init string.[/quote] Luckily, i...

Re: New run of orbshields

[quote="vputz"]Pursuant to the earlier conversation, this didn't happen to be a 5000FLX-A (rebranded 4000)? If not, no idea. That behaviour is consistent with either not receiving enough voltage (but the board works with your Spaceorbs, so I don't think that's it) or the device not receiving the ini...

how to confirm SpaceBall 5000 ball is dead?

Well...curiosity got the better of me and I picked up a SpaceBall 5000 off fleabay. Unfortunately, the idiot seller (new_life_electronics2) decided it was good idea to ship it in one of those yellow bubble mailers w/o anything around it...it arrived w/ holes in the yellow part of the mailer and the ...

Re: New run of orbshields

[quote="vputz"] I'm also wondering if my pad cutouts on my stencils are a little too big and I'm just putting down too much paste. Most of the bridges on the QFP44, when they happen, aren't at the level of the PCB--they're up a little higher. [/quote] I agree...sounds like too much paste which might...

Out of curiosity, which one did you end up with? Wondering if you found a less hellish to solder one? :)

Re: New run of orbshields

Reaction time on the 5000 is slightly better since the pressure encodings are digital instead of needing to read an analog value. That's the main difference...
