xPL Rocket

xPL Rocket

Description:This is just a hack to SharpLauncher that adds xPL support for controlling pan, tilt and rocket firing. It is based on his latest code as of this release, which has some unstable elements in the GUI. However, since I only care about the network controllable aspect using xPL, I have not tried to fix the problems. I have left the original SharpLauncher name & titles in the app.
Usage:This app responds to control.basic messages to control pan, tilt and rockets.  You can have multiple rocket launchers connected to a PC numbered from zero.  Each is addressable by setting device in control.basic to the device's number.  The current field can be: r,l,u,d for pan/tilt and fire to launch a rocket.  Example messages follow.

Pan launcher #0 to the right:

dest = doghouse-rocket.xyz
type = xpl-cmnd
control.basic
{
   device=0
   current=r
}



Tell launcher #1 to fire a rocket:

dest = doghouse-rocket.xyz
type = xpl-cmnd
control.basic
{
   device=1
   current=fire
}
