JS not keeping up with the updates

Postby robv » Wed Aug 12, 2015 6:12 am


I’m testing a custom HOTAS build on OS X 10.10.4 on my i7 rMBP 13” 2013. I have bought your excellent testing app but I still have a few questions

The joystick is a generic HID device with 32 buttons,2 hats and 6 axes. I have a firmware sketch that sends new data every 50msecs.However the app is unable to keep up with the data at that rate. I have to slow down the updates to 150 or 200msec in order to see the live data. When pushing new button states you can easily see the buttons getting updated from left to right. Inside a game the update speed is not an issue.

My second question is if it would be possible to add labels to the Axes instead of just the index. Showing the actual description would be cool but showing just the Usage Page/Usage value would allow me to properly distinguish from different joystick definitions.

Thank you kindly your app has helped me big time with the development.

Adding labels is something I have in mind, at last for most used devices, thanks for the suggestion!
About the speed issue, I will see If I can optimize that.
