I have an OpenROV v2.4 (pre-built) S/N 137 and I'm having trouble getting the XBox controller to work correctly. When I first open OpenROV Cockpit, the controller isn't recognized. Reading forums, etc. I know to press a button to get it to recognize the controller. That works. The problem is that as soon as it recognizes the controller, all three of the motors start up and the only thing that I seem to be able to do with the controller is reverse them, but they never stop.
I'm using a standard XBox 360 controller:
I am using Chrome on Mac OS v10.8.4 (Mountain Lion). The "XBox 360 Controllers" driver shows the joysticks centered:
There are some settings in the OpenROV Cockpit that are not documented in the Software Manual. The first is in Settings:
It is labeled "Motor Response Aggressiveness". I tried various settings and none seemed to have any affect. The other two settings are in the Diagnostic section:
Those settings are Labeled: Runtime Settings: Dead Zone. Changing these settings also didn't seem to have any affect. Unfortunately, I don't know what version of Cockpit I'm running, so I'm hoping that a screenshot will help:
I would appreciate any suggestions on where to go from here to get my controller to work. It would also be helpful if anyone knows what the settings that I have listed above should be.
