SimuCUBE Open Source Firmware Development Update Thread 2

#142

Nice one, thanx Mika :wink: Appreciated!!


#143

Exactly what I was waiting for, thanks.


#144

Great work!
I see that the Bodnar product can ad a delay example: +100ms or 300ms per dence for rotary


#145

so there would be some type of buffer for the rotary events which is played back very slowly?


#146

I think he is talking about the “Encoder Pulse Width” setting on the Bodnar Boards


#147

ah yes. Currently that will be around 16 ms which should be enough for games… or is it?


#148

There have been minor setbacks in testing this week, but I’m hoping a pre-release can be put together during the weekend.


#149

Dont know exactly but I think you Can adjust it with the delay for not to many pulses at once?


#150

We will perhaps implement similar things if they are really required.


#151

Status update:

Internal testing and validation of 0.11.1 continues - we didn’t quite get there last week due to other ongoing projects.


#152

Based on today’s testing effort, it is really starting to look very promising!


#153

More testing was done today with new, not yet disclosed features, bugfixes and other improvements.


#154

Ha, now you’re making me curious :slight_smile:

Hello people. I’m new here and hope this is the correct place for my question. I’ve had my OSW small MiGE for a couple of years from Sim-ple.city and it’s been amazing from the start but I’m now seeing lots of discussion about simucube. My unit came with the ioni pro and stm32 discovery board. I recently purchased a 10000ppr encoder upgrade but then realised after that I could buy the simucube board + a range of much better encoders. My question is, will I notice a difference going from mmos with 10000ppr encoder to simucube with BISS C 22 bit encoder and will there be much to do other than swap boards and install software. Many thanks in advance and thumbs up to all the work you guys have done - it’s nothing short of amazing!

Hello Stephen
https://community.granitedevices.com/t/i-have-a-10-000-ppr-encoder-on-my-small-mige-is-it-worth-to-upgrade-to-biss-c-4-2-million/1681/27


#157

Thanks Herve. It seems the difference is subtle so maybe I’ll spend my money somewhere better.

Anyone interesting in prerelease testing 0.11.1 tonight? :wink:


#159

interested… free time tonight for some testing

Hi Stephen.

I got mine with SimuCUBE already installed, so have never tried MMOS, but I seem to remember people chatting about the difference in feel between those two, and that it’s definitely worth the switch. Maybe the encoder upgrade from 10k to BISS is not that evident, but MMOS -> SinuCUBE should be.

Again, not having tried MMOS, I’m just relaying what I believe to have read. Some of the other should be able to comment on that part.

Hi Thomas

Thanks for getting back. You may have saved me some money here as I have now ordered the simucube board and a 10000ppr encoder upgrade for my MiGE. The BISS C was significantly more expensive so hopefully there is no point going to it. However, Simracingbay has kindly offered me a discount of the BISS C if I change my mind later.

I am really impressed with the OSW community. Everyone is very helpful and open.

I’m looking forward to the new hardware and softwre, I’ll let you guys know how I get on.

Many thanks

Stephen
