Re: Open University "Sense" board and the Pi

Hi, my friend has the Sense and he says it works great.. I may be buying it off him soon to use with my Raspberry Pi, which is exciting :D

Has anyone actually got their Pi and Sense talking?

Thanks for any info!

Re: Controling Lego DC motors

This would be a great idea however they'res 2 versions of mindstorms that are non compatible with each other. Yes, they're most likely not compatible with each other, but I'm sure you could use them both together on the Pi, just using different connections/protocols. is the pi even strong enough to...

Re: Can I use an old desktop screen?

Thanks very much!

Ill have to get one of those then... it's actually a bit annoying having a computer the size of a toothpick with a screen the size of Soviet Russia. :)

Re: Can I use an old desktop screen?

Oh. :mrgreen:

Well, it did seem a little TOO easy. :( Perhaps I'll be able to use the cable for something else.

How much would you be talking about for a converter?

Re: Controling Lego DC motors

hi salim- I'm also interested in this, because I have a large mindstorms collection which I'd like to incorporate into a Pi project. My approach would be to cut off the Lego connectors and hook up the leads to the GPIO - maybe not directly but through something like the Gertboard which would protect...

Re: Can I use an old desktop screen?

Can I use an old desktop screen? Yes you can! There are many HDMI to SVGA (which is what computer screens use) converters available on eBay. I just ordered this one for my Raspberry Pi. Right now I'm having to use a massive flatscreen... easy to see but not very practical. I'll post again after I'v...

Re: R-Pi Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MM

I don't know anything about this kind of stuff so I was wondering if the terrain is generated on the fly or if there is a dedicated 3d terrain model that is already in the game. If it is generated on the fly where are the variables (average variance in terrain height and such) kept? It seems that i...

the tail moves a little too much, and i noticed the center of the wolf's body does not really move Yeah, the tail does look a bit floppy. About the centre, that's where the bones all branch out from. The reason I didn't animate it is because I only used the Rotation keyset, and to animate the centr...

Haha! Finally finished the run cycle. Google found me a nice video of a running dog, which made things a bit easier. The wolf has been retextured a little, and can now run!

Re: R-Pi Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MM

What I personally would like to see in the game is the ability to make cutscenes / cinematics. This could be for a quest, or perhaps when you enter a cave, or travel between planets. You could either use in-game cameras or load your own video / cartoon etc. I think it would add that extra level of a...

Re: R-Pi Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MM

I like that idea. So basically you'd give the world generator a seed, and it would make your custom world. But there would have to be a module or something that mixed worlds... And would each world come with quests to complement it? So for instance, Pete's dark fantasy world might contain an evil wi...
