    [BETA] The Buzz Object

    Hi, everyone

    Here goes my first extension I've created it for my own needs and I guess not many people will be able to use it since you need a specific game controller for it. Anyway:

    The Buzz Object gives you a full control of Sony Playstation set of Buzzer controllers. If you've never heard of them, that's how they look like:

    Each Buzzer has 5 buttons: the big red one (with LED inside), called Buzz and 4 colorful buttons. The Buzzers are mostly used in quiz games where the buttons from blue to yellow work like answers "A, B, C, D" and the Buzz button is used for many various things (like pressing it first when you know the correct answer, etc).
    Each set has 4 Buzzers (wired or wireless) and can be simply plugged into a USB port.

    The reason for creating the Buzz object was to control the LEDs in each Buzzer and that's probably the most advanced part of this extension xD It can also simply read the button states.

    As for now, there are 3 different versions of the Buzzer controllers for Sony Playstation: wired, wireless v1 and wireless v2. I've checked it with the wired ones and the wireless v2. I don't own the set of wireless v1, so I can't check if it works with them. I'd be grateful if anyone here owned that set and would feel like checking it for me

    It should be able to control up to 64 sets of Buzzers simultanously (so it's 256 Buzzers). However I don't own more than one set and also couldn't test it yet. I'm probably gonna check it soon with my friend's set.

    Any info about the usage of the Buzz Object can be found in the included help file.

    DOWNLOAD

    I'm looking forward to hear your opinions and any errors found

    It doesn't show up in MMF for me (Windows XP). Do I need to have drivers installed that are included with the Buzzer controllers? If so, you should load them dynamically so games using the extension won't crash if the user doesn't have the drivers installed.

    Nope, it doesn't need any external DLLs. Sorry, I'm gonna upload the working version in a moment!

    Sorry, but I don't think so as I don't have an XBox to test it on.

    Well, it's pretty simple. Just try something like this:
    Code:
    -Upon pressing "Space bar" -> Switch lamp on Buzzer 1 (Lamps->Switch (Buzzer))
    What kind of Buzzers do you have? The wired or wireless? If it's the second one, which version is it? v1 (with switches on the side of each Buzzer) or v2 (from Logitech, without the switches)?

    Hey again Greg,
    I have the wired ones that work with Playstation 2.
    I managed to get them to turn on and off with the switch on/off command but I couldn't receive button presses like the red button, or one of the 4 coloured buttons

    Hi!
    Very very old post...
    Buzzer object doesn't work for me, but I've done an example for usb playstation buzzers (wired) with "Joystick 2 object".

    The buttons are working, but not the LEDs.

    (The example is half english half spanish...)
