I'm please to announce a new, unofficial DOF update.
It's unofficial because it doesn't come from DOF's creator, SwissLizard.
I created it because I don't think we'll be seeing any more official updates, with SwissLizard on indefinite and maybe permanent hiatus, and we really need some kind of update at this point. So unofficial will have to do. The pressing need for a new One True DOF comes from the splintering of the DOF family tree that's happened over the two years since my now-ironically named Grand Unified version.
This new version merges all of the known third-party forks of DOF on GitHub into one, unified, hopefully harmonious whole. It incorporates:
- Djrobx's fixes for PWM outputs connected to boolean effects
- Rambo3's UltimateIO support, Philips Hue support, and SainSmart auto-config (I'm not sure if the last one is actually working or just an experiment in progress, from the comments in the source control log)
- Freezy's ProPinball bridge
This is an early beta version. It's had only the lightest testing so far, on my own machine, so there's a good chance there are major problems yet to be shaken out. But of course the only way to shake them out is to test it on other machines, so it would be great if you wanted to volunteer to give it a try. Please be aware of the risk of destabilizing your configuration, though - I'd only recommend trying it if you're experienced with DOF and comfortable tinkering with the setup, so that it won't cost you too much time to restore your old configuration if this hoses you down.
So with those warnings in mind, the download link - look for the "Grander Unified-er DOF R3++" link:
I've tested with Pinscape and LedWiz, and those appear to be working well.
I haven't tested (and am not equipped to) with PacLed, UltimateIO, SainSmart, Hue, or Teensy. So your testing would be particularly helpful if you have any of those in your system. If you have a SainSmart, it would also be great to hear if the SainSmart autoconfig is working.
If you do try it out, please post your findings here. Please post positive findings as well as problems, so that we'll know if it's working for anyone. The usual tendency is only to report problems, which is fine once there's some confidence that it's working at all, but for this early version it would be very helpful to know exactly how much testing it's had and in what configurations.
Thanks in advance for the testing help!
