Hi Les,

Just wanted to drop back and say thanks again for the link.
I still couldn't get it working so I watched it again and picked up on the part where you mention the vars in SpadNext that we change, then the penny dropped. All working as expected now.

Time to open Photoshop and see if I can dream up a nice design for the box. :D

Cheers mate, without your video I'd still be scratching my head.
Pete.

As a side note: you mentioned a virtual joystick, I used a virtual FIP instead as my VJ is greyed out for some reason.

Morning Dt,

Did you watch the video Les posted?
I found it very helpful indeed. I had to watch it twice as I missed his explanation of how the script interacts with SpadNext the first time.
Around the 20min mark, he talks about variables in SpadNext, and a bit later how he uses a virtual joystick to press the buttons. (I've used a virtual FIP)

Any issues, give me a shout.
Pete.

That looks fantastic!
I've just had a look through your post and saved it to refer back to when I attempt to expand on mine.
Thanks for sharing.
