    Ok apologies in advance as I am a total newbie. I want to install analog nudge on my Vertigo cab. I did some investigation on hardware, and purchased a Freescale board from Mouser for $15. Is there a tutorial for setting my cab up with this board for nudge only? No plunger, no buttons, just nudge. Appreciate any guidance others can provide here.

     

    Cheers,

    Steve

    For anybody else who goes down this path, use the link below to read up a little and download the PinscapeConfigTool from mar on VPForums. Uncompress the file and start the PinscapeCofigTool executable. This version (V2) has a nice UI and walks you thru the entire process. One thing that I could have used some help with, and I will provide here for applications similar to mine. Make sure to select a USB IDENTIFICATION of “Pinscape” A USB Setting of “LedWiz 1” was working for some VP and VPX tables but causing issues with others. Setting it to “Pinscape” works fine. The settings is mentioned in the thread on VPF if you dig. At first pass, I would never have understood the comment anyway.

    Pinscape Controller Software V2:

    So if you have a Vertigo cab like me, and want to gain analog nudge, go buy a Freescale FRDM-KL25Z, use Pinscape V2 via the VPF thread above, disable everything on the board except for “Joystick” (nudge), and make sure to set the USB IDENTIFICATION to “Pinscape”.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Can you move the vertigo cab easily to ‘nudge’?

    The pinscape v2 will let you just set it up for nudge.  I have done this with my new build.

    Now that the board is running, I built a small temporary shelf about 32″ up, on the inside wall of the cab for mounting the nudge board. I’ve been playing with settings in VP and VPX. Seem’s like it is working ok. It is a little odd to nudge the Vertigo with it’s narrow foot print and height. This Vertigo is my first experience with a cab. I really have no exposure to them prior. Would be nice to play a cab with nudge dialed in so I might learn how well it can perform. One thing I love about this hobby so far, the more I learn, the more fascinated I become with my cab. Lots of cool people in this hobby as well.

    Nudge related, not Freescale… I have put together my own little machine, and want to add nudging.

    I got a MS Sidewinder Freestyle Pro, but cannot get drivers to install in Win 7 64-bit. I looked for drivers

    but couldn’t find any that would work. Any suggestions?? thanks,

    You should consider cutting straight to the chase and use a KL25Z. If you’re using something else for buttons already then that’s fine as it will work perfectly well just as a nudging device. You could then easily add analog plunging to it later and it would take all of 2 mins with the Pinscape Config Tool to set it up.
