ok that sounds a little copmlicated for a novice like myself.
any chance for an idiots guide? x3 im trying to get a gps sketch to work that i found here but it uses wstring.h and that capacity bit is preventing compile since i have no wstring.h or the rest of that particular lib.
im not really a coder so i cant work out the complex things.

so what do u do with an error like:
Code:
'class String' has no member named 'capacity'

there needs to be a table that shows the alts between wstring and the new core string lib smiley

i defiantly will be interested in seeing this complete smiley i wouldn't mind having a go at something like this for myself if u are successful and don't mind sharing code and stuff smiley-grin
i use 3ds max myself and it would be great to make my own motion capture stuff.

getting it to attach to a biped would probably be a great way to go for portability..

hi i'm having no luck with this lcd :S
i used kuk's code and the stuff on the playground linky and nothing is showing up on the screen smiley-sad
the screen is fresh out of a 3310, and was functioning fine, has only been powered from a 3.3v run RBBB and all soldering is good..

anyone know why i am getting nothing? screen should be working perfectly :S

not sure how to go about it, but an ir receiver and an ir led and a couple of buttons would probably be ideal smiley-grin dunno what resistors to use. as for programming (again im not the best person to ask) some kind of digital read, store, digital write, type thing might be the way to go.. it would store one signal at a time tho, a bit like a copy/paste buffer (clipboard).

thats the theory anyway. i dunno how to program it tho :S and my wiring up of the ting would be a hazardous guess smiley-grin

a pin for the rec button, a pin for the tx button, and another couple of pins for the ir rx and tx emitter and receiver, there would probably have to be a resitor in line for the ir tx led tho.

sorry i cant be any more help, if this is any help that is smiley-grin

what you want some kind of IR signal record/playback device?

if you are uploading a sketch to an atmega chip via the parallel programmer cable you dont need a bootloader.. the bootloader is only if you are using the serial method to upload sketches to it.

if u need a smaller board there are other options of arduino smiley the Decemillia is but one of many smiley-grin

the boarduino is a small board as is the RBB (really bare bones) best look at the main arduino site for a list of available boards and "replicants"

Any special reason you're not just using perfboard?  It works fine for me with "production runs" of 1 to 10 items.

I got a kit from Maplin wen i was living in the uk, that had a tray, feric cloride, a pen, and some sheets of board.. it was the cheapest and all i could get at the time. I have the board and pen remaining, (the FC got left behind after it was ruined by my bro)

there is nothing wrong wit tis board smiley and i quite laike making my own pcb this way since i am using a better etchetant smiley (cupric copper cloride?)

its just the marking out of the tracks, and etching without pitting and stuff, i can only draw so well smiley-grin

i only have plain one sided copper clad board

i cant get anything else right now. i dont mass produce boards anyway smiley not atm smiley-grin

i thought about, and quikly dissmissed smiley-grin, the scalpel method smiley-grin

the cheapest and easiest would be preferable smiley-grin

Hi  smiley for informational purposes, and future reference, I need insight into transfering the printed circuit board tracks onto a blank pcb for etching..

Now options that are a no no for me are: laser printer toner. we have a inkjet printer, and that is it. so th eiron on toner trick is a no go.

to put it bluntly, i have a sharpie pen, and chemical etchetant. I have to draw my boards by hand, and scratch the overlaps with a sharp soldering tool tip (not an iron, some sharp pointy thing). and no ordering custom boards from an online company either.

I have made a few boards already this way, one of them housing an atmega168 to drive a servo.
Another for a rs232 to ttl converter (its on my forum), and another for my R2 robot im making(its only a bridge atm with power distrib).

But as i progress things are gonna get more complicated and the risk of pitting and undercutting will be greater and less acceptable.

are there any suggestions that will help me, and any other people trying to get round this, that can be given?

The pin marked Vin (next to the Gnd pin) is the 9 volt input pin. But as pointed out above, this is too much for most servos.

yea it would be a bit too much.. i need to sort my joystick pots out with new wires so i can make a x and y control axis need to make a trip to the components shop too for some resistors and such
