Re: Updating Java on SBC

The SBC (at least until recently) runs a fairly old version of Debian so the package repository likely has out of date defaults. You can try searching for a newer version manually with apt-cache search or you can flash a new OS to your SBC. We just released support for Debian 11. You can download th...

Re: Game (unity3d) with phidgets hangs on close

I can reproduce the issue consistently now but only if I am not closing the manager object properly before terminating the program. If I do close things out properly then the issue does not manifest.

So long as I call objectName.Close(); before Application.Quit(); then I don't get the issue.

Re: Game (unity3d) with phidgets hangs on close

There is certainly an issue with the Editor not releasing the Phidget library or something after use. When I connect and test in the Editor the RFID reader via the DLL I'll get a reading off tags fine during play mode. But once I exit play mode, even with proper cleanup I will hang Unity Editor on ...

Re: module hub vint 6 only detected after unplug / plug

Also, what kind of motherboard do you have? Certain Asus chipsets have known issues with booting up with USB devices attached.

Re: Bear with me, new here, very non technical, with a quest

My first thought would be that the software is coded such that it is expected a specific serial number for the interface kit. When it goes to open the device to start using it, the serial number it is expected isn't there and so it fails to open the device. Without knowing how the software is writte...

Re: motion controller for vr

The 1049 is long since out of production. You will want to change over to either the 1043 or 1044 as those are the current models of our spatials.

Re: Detect stalled stepper with 1067 controller

Really your best option is to use an encoder or something similar on the back of the motor if you expect a high likelihood of your motor stalling. There is no good way to detect this directly from the 1067.

Re: VB.net/mono problem, I can not run it

Last time I checked (a while ago now, I admit) mono was broken for VB.net, it was only functional for C#.

Re: Windows 10 Iot

We do not currently have drivers for the ARM version of Windows nor do we have any plans to make drivers for it. That's not to say we never will, but it won't be any time soon if we ever do.
