CannonBoard Motion Control Part 2

The CannonBoard interface is progressing really nicely. Colin sent me this video earlier of the full moving cabinet working in conjunction with CannonBall.

You can see the motor calibration code is ported which moves the cabinet left and right at startup before finally centering. The in-game motor code, which I'd originally ported for force-feedback PC based steering wheels, can now be used as originally intended - to drive the cabinet's motor!

The dream is slowly becoming a reality and it's great to see the level of care and attention Colin has been pouring in to get the hardware just right. He is continuing to work on the audio interface next.
