Logitech Gamepad...strategy for installing on OpenROV 2.6


#1

Students at MVHS have been working on getting their fully assembled 2.6 ROV ready for testing in our school pool. Cockpit is working fine with the keyboard controls but we are experiencing difficulty installing the Logitech F310 Gamepad...any suggestions or solutions? We have read through previous discussion on this topic but not working. May be a network issue with our school laptop? Any help much appreciated!

If you are on the original software, there was an issue with a breaking change in chrome, along with a patch that is explained here: http://community.openrov.com/profiles/blogs/gamepad-hiccups

Else, you can use the release candidate for the next release: https://github.com/OpenROV/openrov-software/releases/tag/v2.5.1-rc3%2Bb83

Thanks Brian! We copied the code, right clicked on gamepad icon in cockpit, found the gamepad.js file, pasted the new code but unsure how to save our changes...get message that changes won't be saved when closing this window. Suggestions?
