Carl of Songbird Productions is teaming up with Lee Olivares (maker of the Yak Twister boards and holder (hoarder? Haha) of the polyface chips) to see if they can make some headway on a NUON controller option. This could be epic! Screenshot below from AtariAge.

PS Nick Persijn also posted there recently that Lee has the VM Labs schematics for the polyface chip (in addition to having the last confirmed stash of OEM polyface chips).

UPDATE

This has fallen through new controller information further on.

It means they announced something Carl has hinted in the past he was doing something about the NUON controllers. Carl from Songbird is freaking amazing and you know if he is involved something is going to happen.

Like AtariGalore has mentioned you really do not need a polyface chip you just need specs for it. That way you can create a new chip or do something else that does the same thing. The controller stuff is not locked down with encryption or anything it just expects input and give output. Anything can do that including software only solutions like emulators on PC.

my friend said it would take him 10-20 days to fully implement nuon support on him adapter, but that's time he could put into other things he could make sales off implementing....he doesn't think many would be buying his adapter for nuon support.... i am trying to convince him though

so he will probably take quite a bit longer doing it when he feels like it in spare time.

I'm going to try to pay him some for his time to dedicate some time to it.

there seems to be a significant number of nuon players on the market at any given time, if there were reasonable controller options they would probably sell. If he is working on a controller maybe we can milk a game out of him :)

I have heard Zero it is probably in the works stuck somewhere in the process....

I'm also curious about @atarigalore's friend's adapter. He said it would only take him 10-20 days to get his adapter working for Nuon controllers and that was back in March. Hmm...

Coming Soon in NUON terms that might be a couple of years :) But definitely will be coming.

Luckily they are not. 2 out of 3 of my goals are working just the Authentication Tools stuff is stalled. I have not given up on that yet either.

What's going on with that guy? 6 year post history at Atari Age and as of a few days ago, seems like he either had a stroke or maybe his account hacked? Everything went from "been working on em, send me money" to this???

The Yak Twister guy? I don't know he never responded with a quote now it seems that the problem with the Tools is different so I am going at a different way. The Controller stuff is behind the scenes stuff that is still too early for me to get anyones hopes up by announcing something now. The Yak Twister guy messed me up early as I was looking at those NUON controller chips and I was under the impression he bought them and now they are gone or dont exist whatever.

Did anyone send him any money?

BAM!

OK so I saw that someone leaked out the information on this on Facebook already (Carl) so I guess I can talk about it now. I sent my NUON controllers, one Stealth and one Logitech (for the analog) so that Carl from Songbird could clone them. Based on what I have heard we have success. Looks like a mid year release but do not quote me on it just wait for Carl to make the official announcement. And we did not even need the Yak Twister guy either he just slowed us down just saying. Way to go Carl getting that going on glad I could help!

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    So what it really is me trying to implement some kind of better site navigation not change the whole theme of the site
  • Varine Varine:
    How can you tell the difference between real traffic and indexing or AI generation bots?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The bots will show up as users online in the forum software but they do not show up in my stats tracking. I am sure there are bots in the stats but the way alot of the bots treat the site do not show up on the stats
  • Varine Varine:
    I want to build a filtration system for my 3d printer, and that shit is so much more complicated than I thought it would be
  • Varine Varine:
    Apparently ABS emits styrene particulates which can be like .2 micrometers, which idk if the VOC detectors I have can even catch that
  • Varine Varine:
    Anyway I need to get some of those sensors and two air pressure sensors installed before an after the filters, which I need to figure out how to calculate the necessary pressure for and I have yet to find anything that tells me how to actually do that, just the cfm ratings
  • Varine Varine:
    And then I have to set up an arduino board to read those sensors, which I also don't know very much about but I have a whole bunch of crash course things for that
  • Varine Varine:
    These sensors are also a lot more than I thought they would be. Like 5 to 10 each, idk why but I assumed they would be like 2 dollars
  • Varine Varine:
    Another issue I'm learning is that a lot of the air quality sensors don't work at very high ambient temperatures. I'm planning on heating this enclosure to like 60C or so, and that's the upper limit of their functionality
  • Varine Varine:
    Although I don't know if I need to actually actively heat it or just let the plate and hotend bring the ambient temp to whatever it will, but even then I need to figure out an exfiltration for hot air. I think I kind of know what to do but it's still fucking confusing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Maybe you could find some of that information from AC tech - like how they detect freon and such
  • Varine Varine:
    That's mostly what I've been looking at
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I'm dealing with quite the same pressures though, at the very least its a significantly smaller system. For the time being I'm just going to put together a quick scrubby box though and hope it works good enough to not make my house toxic
  • Varine Varine:
    I mean I don't use this enough to pose any significant danger I don't think, but I would still rather not be throwing styrene all over the air

    New dessert added to recipes Southern Pecan Praline Cake https://www.thehelper.net/threads/recipe-southern-pecan-praline-cake.193555/
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Another bot invasion 493 members online most of them bots that do not show up on stats
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm looking at a solid 378 guests, but 3 members. Of which two are me and VSNES. The third is unlisted, which makes me think its a ghost.

    I bitch about Xenforo sometimes but it really is full featured you just have to really know what you are doing to get the most out of it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is just not easy to fix styles and customize but it definitely can be done
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do know this - xenforo dropped the ball by not keeping the vbulletin reputation comments as a feature. The loss of the Reputation comments data when we switched to Xenforo really was the death knell for the site when it came to all the users that left. I know I missed it so much and I got way less interested in the site when that feature was gone and I run the site.
