    Default Rejoice and Mjoy help

    Creating my own Midi Control Device (I will share!) and I'm having some issues with the software.

    Rejoice, I like a lot. BUT, it crashes sometimes with a ''Run-time Error '6': Overflow'' message. The program will not restart until the computer has rebooted. I read on a forum to delete "p5dll.dll", but this has had no effect.

    MJoy, seems much more stable. However, I can not seem to save my presets. When I click on the icon with the pen & disk nothing happens. When I reload the program, all my settings are gone. (FYI: the other two buttons (Trash and New) work fine.

    Does anyone have solutions to either of these problems?
    Or another freeware software app that can handle multiple button gamepads?

    I did manage to find the help.html for Rejoice on an archive and turned it into a pdf.

    It is available here: http://raritiesvault.net/bcd3000/vie...4&t=19&start=0

    However, it says nothing about this error.
    I STILL NEED HELP!

    I have only used MJoy and the save function worked perfectly. I would suggest using GlovePie instead. There are some many more possibilities. It's up there with Bomes for HID. The only problem is you need to learn there C style coding. What HID chip did you get?

    I figured MJoy out.
    once you have all the settings in the box on the right
    simply click on the pulldown list thing under presets
    nothing will happen, but if you type something in then it will allow you to.
    then hit the floppy disc with the pen.
    it should be saved (open the folder where you saved mjoy.exe to and there should be a file - it will be called whatever you typed.MJoy)
    its a simple text file with the following format

    Joy=0,Axis=X,Buttons=0,Gravity=10,Inverted=0,Curve =0,CH=0,CC=1,MIN=0,MAX=127
    Joy=0,Axis=Y,Buttons=0,Gravity=10,Inverted=0,Curve =0,CH=0,CC=1,MIN=0,MAX=127

    Sometimes it's too simple for me to figure out. HAHAHA

    Does anyone have any idea how to avoid the Rejoice error?

    I would suggest using GlovePie instead.
    I will check it out. Thanks for the reference.

    What HID chip did you get?
    NONE! HA! I am using an old Gravis Gamepad Pro. I'm wiring switches and LED into a box to complete the circuit of the controls on the gamepad.
    (10 buttons and 2 axis)

    Hi man, it would be fine to solve that problem with rejoice, cause i have the same problem, lol
    one hour or less and runtime error come up, until you reboot
    and i dont like Mjoy cause its only have 6 botoms to control,
    i have 10 , i would be fine if we can find a soft like that
    better than rejoice(cause dont have support anymore)
    and Mjoy(Cause is still on beta).
    i find a soft call "MiJoy PRO 3" but i search the entire network and i dont
    find it, it would be nice if someone who have this soft, share with us
    or some other soft to, covert joystick to midi thanks

    GlovePIE was over my head. I tried unsuccessfully several times to write a simple script to get the buttons to trigger MIDI events. If you can point me to some documentaiontion that would help. The problem I had in resources was that most where for configuring Wiimote.

    "MiJoy PRO 3" isn't free, so I wouldn't ask for copies. You can get a demo HERE

    However, I have found a stable app.
    JOY2MIDI http://krypt.dyndns.org:81/joy2midi/
    It is easy to configure for those of us lacking any coding skills.
    I only have two issues with it:
    1. It only sends thru MIDI chan 1
    2. loading your custom map file is too many clicks.

    But hey... IT'S FREE.

    I'm using this now to control my CT-102
