Has anyone made a Lighthack box with three encoders? And how easy is it to modify the code to add an extra encoder in?
That should possible with a little bit knowledge for understanding C code. You will find links in this forum for different modifications.e.g. https://github.com/sstaub/lighthackhttps://github.com/Druuka…
Here is a modified version of Mr Staub's code that uses 4 encoders and a 4x20 screen, https://www.dropbox.com/s/5x7xkp378k13of6/lighthack_box2B__-_Bradv12.ino?dl=0 it runs nicely on a Teensy 3.5 boa…
Where are you seeing the error? When compiling and uploading or in Eos? Which version of Eos are you running? I've only used mine on 2.9.1
That should possible with a little bit knowledge for understanding C code. You will find links in this forum for different modifications.e.g. https://github.com/sstaub/lighthackhttps://github.com/Druuka/LightHackYou should also use a bigger LCD display with 2x40 chars.
Unfortunatley I have next to no understanding of C code but I will read through some of the scripts from those githubs and try and work out how to merge them together into something that fits my needs. Also I was thinking instead of an LCD display I could maybe just use a few LEDs that light up to indicate which page you are on and a single button to step through parameter pages rather than two, to save space and arduino pins.

Thank you very much, I have ordered some encoders and will give this a try
Is there a new place to find this file? All I get from this link is "404 That file isn’t here anymore"
Sorry, I was moving stuff around on my harddrive and screwed up that link. Try www.dropbox.com/.../AAAKp7YZ5xG3MbthP0BFwORea
This is a long shot here, but I'm using your code and I'm having some trouble. I wondered if you could help?
The third and fourth encoder are not working for me. All four of the buttons work for their appropriate parameter, but only the first two encoders are working with rotation. Any ideas?
the only thing I can think of is checking your soldering, sorry.
I'm sure the soldering is proper. It's giving me the error, "error, ProcessWheelCommand invalid parameter name: empty"
Ok, dummy me, that is the error that you get when the parameter is literally listed as "empty."
When I hit the parameter up or down buttons, it then works since instead of trying to change the "empty" parameter, it changed the "diffusion" parameter, (which actually exists).
By the way that error was in Tab 99 diagnostics.
Now I'm having a different issue where the arduino is not reading the 4th encoder, connected to pins A8 and A9. Any thoughts?
depending on the sketch.... what pins do you have assigned to the 4th encoder... Brads sketch linked above has encoder 4 on pins A6-A7.
