mcjTTY


________________________________________________________________________
Introduction
________________________________________________________________________

 If you have an arduino, or in fact anything that "talks" over the serial port of your PC

then using this kit of software, you can communicate with your device from Daz Studio

This is for Windows PCs only ... unless someone can come up with a simple Terminal for Macs

________________________________________________________________________
Installation
________________________________________________________________________

  The installation zip packages can be found at the bottom of this web page in the attachments section

The 2 important parts:
  • mcjCommtty.exe A PC/DOS program kown as a "terminal" It is the communication bridge between the Arduino and DazStudio 
  • mcjTTY.dsa A Daz Studio script which sends, receives and displays data to/from the arduino through mcjCommTty

mcjTTY.zip contains mcjTTY.dsa

Typically it means:

c:\program files\daz\studio\contents
or
C:\Program Files (x86)\DAZ\Studio\content
or
C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\DAZ 3D\Studio\My Library\


if installed properly,  mcjTTY.dsa will be accessible in Daz Studio in the contents tab as

studio/scripts/mcasual/
or
My Library/scripts/mCasual


mcjComtty.zip contains mcjCommtty.exe and mcjCommtty.cpp the source code

the easiest is to unzip this in YourDazContentLibrary/scripts/mCasual

because by default that's where mcjTTY will expect to find it

but you can place it where you please!

Requirements
________________________________________________________________________

 - PC running Windows

- An arduino or in fact anything that can send data to your PC through one of the COM ports


________________________________________________________________________
Instructions
________________________________________________________________________

Note that this script is mainly intended as a base 
upon which daz script programmers can develop

The script does not detect the COM port your device uses

so get the COM port from, for example the Arduino IDE

launch mcjTTY

set the com port and baud rate

if it's not already done, press the "Select Server" button and specify the location of mcjComtty.exe

press the "Start Server" button

You can use the "Type Here" field to send commands

There's also a "Send File" option but it's very dumb i mean there's probably not much flow control/pacing

it just dumps the file as-is in one shot on Stdout
