i’m looking forward to using my Wiring board via the Firmata protocol, similar to the ArduinoFirmata. my first test (see attached patch) showed that only pins 2 to 7 of Port0 are responsive as digital output pins. the IO ports of the Wiring are grouped in ports on the hardware. for my purposes i only need outputs, as many as possible (should be 52, 2 pins of 54 in total are blocked in use for the serial communication between PC and Wiring). the other ports/pins aren’t addressable as with ArduinoFirmata.
i’ve uploaded the referenced Firmata-2.0beta3 and replaced the standard Firmata library as of the Wiring027 IDE. remarkably this only succeeded using the OS X version of Wiring027, but not using the Windows flavour. heck knows why.
i’m no good at the Wiring/Arduino IDE, and I have no idea how to look into the contents of the ArduinoFirmata node in order to come up with a solution. would be great to have wirmachenbunt or mr.benefit coming up with pointers on how to make it work …
thx for reading, patrick
