My main project right now is using an Arduino to control lap timing and other features on my slot car track. I saw other examples people have done, and found one that works well controlling a single lane. Digging a little deeper I found this project slotcarduino, and glancing over the code it looks like it has a lot of really cool features.
So on the project page it doesn’t have any official downloads, just the source code and it looks like this project hasn’t been active in a few years and has no developers. Here are the steps I’ve taken so far:
Each .cpp and .h source file I opened in notepad and pasted each under it’s own tab with it’s respective name and file type. I attached a copy of the error the Arduino IDE threw me. There were also a .cproject, .project, and a settings folder included. I wasn’t sure if maybe it was developed in another IDE that might not be completely compatible with the Arduino IDE. Other than that, I’m not sure if the best approach would just be trial and error, uncommenting stuff until it successfully compiles… It’s hard to know whether there is an error in the files, or I’m just not doing something correctly.
Ever since I built my first RepRap about 4 years ago, I had to learn Arduino by default and fell in love with programming in the process. I’d love to help bring this project back to life and get some good programming experience to put on my resume. So if any of you can help point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it!
