    Default Power Glove Question

    Hey all, I got a power glove and I have just one issue.
    I understand how the glove works and I know about using the proper code for games and hitting "center" and whatnot. For some reason everything reads fine but the signal for Left and Right keep randomly blinking, causing the direction to keep alternating uncontrollably. However Up, Down, A and B work fine.
    The system HAS had it's Lockout chip disabled. Not sure if that could cause this issue.

    Your problem is that you're using the power glove. Mine works about as well as your's does, where everything but left/right works well. On mine I can get it to read "left" maybe half the time, but I can never make it read "right."

    My suggestion is to hang the power glove on the wall where it belongs, and use a normal controller.

    I Lol'd. I also totally agree, thats what my bud was saying.
    Thing is we have a game store and I plan on selling this. Which is why I need to make sure it's acting normally. From what I can tell and what I've been reading...it is...

    I'd keep it, just as a center piece if I had it. I have the horrible U-force controller in box, and the konami head set for nes, but never tried them out.

    The Konami headset is like a gas-powered scooter. It's kinda fun but not for long and don't let anyone see you using it. Also it's fun to play with the VOX relay and yell random things into it. (btw my friends and I figured that out 15 years before AVGN..FART FART FART heh heh heh).

    As far as the power glove, that thing just sucks. You have to keep your hand perfectly straight. AFAIR it senses movement based on roll so that may be your problem. There are some really good technical documents out there (relating to DIY VR) that deal with programming for the glove, so they're also a good source for tech info.
