Comments, Suggestions & Questions / Re: Hobbes (Files) Reoganization
« on: June 25, 2022, 01:53:10 am »
Hi

I had lost some intensity on the hobbes reorganization, and I think I'm happy with the directory structure now.

I don't know if there are some comments, I still need to continue with:
- /pub/os2/apps/comm/bbs
- /pub/os2/util/network/tcpip
- /pub/os2/dev/pascal
- /pub/os2/dev/rexx (This will take longer)

I'm also starting slowly with: /pub/os2/system/patches

Regards

Hi Martin

Just in case, since I had been reorganizacion files in hobbes, I want to say I haven't touched anything  ;D. I saw your file some days ago in the incoming, but didn't followed it later. I have no special access to hobbes for the reorganization that I'm doing.

The only thing that I had noticed and told Curtis, is that there were some problems while replacing files, he told me that it was something he was tweaking and now it is fixed.

I will advice you to upload again the files and see if it works this time.

Regards

I'm sorry Paul. It is always hard to loose a mascot since they are part of the family. I remember long time ago your pictures with the puppy and even your picture at ArcaNoe Store with your dog and I understand how much you cared for. Just take the time you need without any pressure to reply on the forums.

Hi

Testing Dooble with https://meet.google.com I wonder why the Windows version access to meet without problem, while the OS/2 version asks me to download Chrome, Firefox or Edge.
I was expecting the OS/2 version to show me some errors at least.

Hi

A quick update. After some more testing, opening the fifth tab, I put https://www.google.com, and I had experienced a complete system freeze. The CPU indicators on the bottom froze and the CAD is not working. It required a full shutdown pressing and holding the power button.

Hi Paul
https://smedley.id.au/tmp/dooble-2022.06.15-os2-20220618.zip
I tried it on my Thinkpad L420. It had installed the older Dooble with the required libraries. I just downloaded dooble on a different folder and run dooble.exe.

I just made simple tests with OS2World and gmail.  If I type www.os2world.com, it will not load, I had to put the full https://www.os2world.com, the same with gmail. (Noticed this also happens on the Windows version)

Gmail and OS2World worked fine. I experienced a "dooble close" on my first test (Firefox was also running on the background) and no information was reflected the popuplog. On the second test (without Firefox on the background) I played a longer time with OS2World and gmail and open some other sites and it keeps working for the moment.

I don't know if it recommended to check some other logs. Or if somebody has some test websites that are recommend to stress out Dooble a little bit.

Attached a little picture of https://html5test.com/

Hi Paul, if you got the time, please post the PCI.exe report and the full model number here in the forum, I like to include the PC running ArcaOS on the Wiki.

Hi Wim

Thanks for posting the instructions again and keep us on the right track. I will follow that procedure for the "Genius MaxFighter F-31U Vibration" and post back.

Hi Martin!

Hi

It was time to also give a test drive to the "Genius MaxFighter F-31U Vibration" with ArcaOS.

I took the "RM203" files and copy it as "MAXFIG".
Added:
 
Quote
DEVICE=X:\OS2\BOOT\USBECD.SYS /D:0458:3019:0100 /N:$MAXFIG$ /V
Changed the oinput and xevents and I got some output there.

But I overestimated the difference between a joystick and gamepad. It seems that the joystick has something different that is always "pressing". Even that I got different visual feedback when I press the buttons, I was not able to make Makman and Wolfstein 3D to work with the RM203 scripts, also the DOS game joytest utilities does not provide any movement.

I'm attaching the scripts and log just in case.

Regards


Did you try modifying the Xeventsf1d.cmd file that Wim created for me? (I've attached it again below but included it in a separate post to Dave Yeo previously)

I don't know which Xevents is present in the most current RM203 file, but the MaxFighter looks very similar to the T.Flight X in configuration, so the changes there may settle things down. The MaxFighter schematic seems very similar to the T.Flight, being kind of a cross between a joystick and a gamepad

Some of that may also be due to calibration - the Mk2 and T.Flight X have sometimes needed to be re calibrated when one or the other is used in a game.

Some Joysticks can also be really sensitive - the new T. Flight has a tension adjustment on the bottom which I have cranked up to max, as I'm used to the heavy springs on the Mk2.


Funny Note: I had to check the online dictionary to know what is a "Rudder" and I still does not know what does it do on a Joystick 


The T. Flight actually has a Throttle control on the base which is a slider.

The Mk II was actually part of a Flight Control System, which also included a separate plug-in throttle. The latest systems have a Joystick, separate Throttle, Foot peddles for rudder control, sometimes even what is called a "collective" lever for helicopter control (adjusts the rotors so the helicopter doesn't spin out of control - its also the way to control direction) - I know one fellow who even has a custom chair to surround himself with all the controls - WILD!

Hi Mark

I tried xeventsF1d.cmd , I changed the NAME and HardwareID, but I get no output from it.
I tried back the xevents.cmd (RM203) and it keeps giving me some output.

Hi Martin,
Hi

I want to try the PlayStation 3 controller (USB Connected).

I had added this on the config.sys:
Code: [Select]
DEVICE=X:\OS2\BOOT\USBECD.SYS /D:054C:0268:0100 /N:$PSX3$ /V
I had changed the "HUSKEE" oiput and xevents scripts to point to "$PSX3$". In xevents I had updated "Line 13" (or 14?) to point to "054C:0268:0100", but I get no output from the scripts. I guess it is not as simple as that.

Any tips?

Regards
Since this controller has not been tried and tested before, it is best to prepare a new oinput.cmd first.
From the attached lsusb -v report (PSX3controller.txt) I learned that it uses 64 byte input records.
I have prepared oinput64.cmd that I attach here for you to tryout first.

Best regards,
Wim.

Hi Wim

I had tried the attached "oinput64.cmd" but it does not gave me any response when I press the buttons. I only get black screen with no activity.
I had confirmed that the PSX3 controller is connected by using lsusb and checking that it has the lights blinking.

Regards

Hi Mark.

Just in case, if you want to update the table on your guide (Page 9 - tested Equipment), I have some details of my gamepads here: https://www.os2world.com/wiki/index.php/Category:Joysticks

Which reminds me I need to take some time to test the "Genius MaxFighter F-31U Vibration" that I have around.

Regards

Martin, I think it is best to wait for Mark to have digested and incorporated my comments.

Ok, that's good.
