hey i ordered remora arc eyes and te-s kitty on friday it says i got an email saying that it has been shipped on saturday, i know monday was a holiday and tuesday was the first business day this week, i figured by today the tracking would be updated but it still only says electronic info received... any answers as to whether the package has been sent to them etc...?

Not sure if it has been mentioned but it would be nice to be able to adjust the activation time for the screensaver, maybe 30 second increments?

Alright this is my second Remora installation. Previously I used the Chimp SMD but now I am using a TE Kitty with black screw terminals.
Where do I plug a wire in to get power from the TE Kitty. For instance, the Chimp, I connected the VCC on the Remora to the VCC on the Chimp. How does the TE Kitty go about?

Will there be a way to update the remoras software, or will I have to buy an updated version. If I recall I remember hearing that only 2% of the Remoras memory is used. One thing I would like is the inverse feature the widget had where all the lights would display and fade out or disappear depending which base mode was selected.

Aren't there two VCC's for USB connections in kitty? U can use either one of them by putting two lines to one spot.

Is it possible to connect both the Remora and the SparkCE to the VCC on the TE Kitty? Just stick both power wires into the screw/spring terminal on th Kitty? Will this work safely without damaging anything, or is there a better way? Maybe Remora to TE Kitty then SparkCE to Remora VCC?

Hey toodles, I have a slight problem. One of my arc eye3s doesn't transition to green or any variation of it. I tested the arc eye and it is good, so is the Remora PCB. I swapped the cable and it worked perfectly. I was wondering if i could purchase a replacement cable from you?
Also is there a pcb you can recommend to make the stick light up as well?
(I'm not afraid to solder)
Thanks for your time.

They're labeled E1 and E2, two through hole points in the lower right of the board. For say the breathing one, I'd recommend E2 to resistor, other leg of resistor to cathode leg of LED, anode leg of LED to ground.

thanks as always toodles
also i dont have a resistor attached to it the dangers?

Does this stick only has one Ramora in it?

Yessir no other led pcbs.
The remora 13 ribbon connectors sets, 2 for te-s cn-1 cn-2, 2 for te cn-1 cn-2, you use which depending on the stick you have. Then the 8 for the face buttons to which there is a connector for arc eyes and 2 quick disconnects for the buttons. Then a final connector for start and select buttons. In addition on the remora there is 2 holes labeled E1 and E2 .
E1 is used to make a light be on and stay on and E2 for the glowing effect you see. You solder a power cable to one of those slots depending on which mode you want that wire is then soldered to a resistor that is compatible for your power setup and the led type that is soldered in line with the cathode leg of the led. Then the other leg is has wire soldered to it and you can use the screw terminal on ground to ground that wire (many options for ground just the easiest for me).
FYI Just in case you don't know the cathode is the shorter leg of led's (usually) if you come across led's of the same leg length there are other ways to tell *google is your friend*

You sir are my friend. That info is what I needed. My builds will be so much cleaner and efficient with the info you provided. Thank you.

Your welcome not a problem. In addition I loved the ripple effect but wanted light up on demand so i broke out an fgwidget from another stick and there's no power issues (at least with the 360) I'm sure the ps3 still pumps out 5v for usb so this shouldn't pose any problem for those two boards to be used in unison. Can't say if it can handle a dual mod pcb in addition though.

So I want to light up the buttons on my stickless controller directionals. I want to use Arch Eye 3's. Can I connect the E2 on the Remora to them?
bgmk100, post: 7620536, member: 20607 wrote:
Unfortunately not to each of them. You would only be able to power one button with one color because e2 doesn't have the rgb control so you would only be able to solder to one of the pins on the light and it would just continue to breathe like my ball does. I may be wrong here it may be able to daisy chain the power wire to all of 4 different arc eyes but I am certain you can only have one color supported. (I am not an electronics pro so hopefully someone more qualified can verify whether this works or not).

Installing on a VS stick right now. Where are you running the ground from the remora to?

MANY CHOICES you can splice the usb and solder to the black ground wire. For dual mods using any of toodles boards can use the same screw terminal as the usb's ground or any extra spots if you have a chimp smd. Exclusive to the ground wire and not the VCC wire you can shove the wire in between one of the pins of the microswitch of a button but YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU USE THE GROUND WIRE IN THAT SPOT AND NOT THE SIGNAL WIRE then plug the signal wire in the other pin. The ground wire on the ribbon cable to the button is the wire next to the set of wires that separate and make the header for the lights. If you need to see a visual representation of this purple arms has a picture of the end of the ribbon with labels for what each wire is on the first post of the arc eye 3 thread.

Ok. Got it by flipping the board upside down and soldering it to the board.
Only 1 problem exists.. Button mapping is all messed up. I did the reset and put in the order given on the sheet, but it's still off by a lot.
I assumed there was no order needed on the remora when plugging in the buttons to it. Only thing I am thinking is the cn1 and 2 were swapped. I labeled them correctly. But I'll give it a shot
Ninja edit: I'm a moron. The angle I was viewing the qd on the remora didn't allow me to see that the qd's were labeled with the assigned button. Wow.

Yea fortunately toodles was nice enough so that if you wanted rb to be the top left button that you get the lights to display in correct order for screen saver and have it not be locked by button which is nice. It lead me to the idea of messing with the light mapping order to change how certain screen savers appear because you could make the lights display in any order using this trick I'm gonna post a vid later since you've brought this up indirectly.

So i ordered a remora board anticipating the PS360+ shipping but it got pushed back again so I went with a chimp SMD. It came together great and works except the red doesn't work at all. Any time its supposed to be red it just goes dark. When I enter setup mode #5 stays dark as well. Any ideas what this could be?

Hello, I purchased second Remora and I am trying to use Pele with remora.
I have contacted Paradisearcade and brian told me that remora needs modification
Can you please tell me what I need to do to mod the remora?

Can anyone confirm that SparkCE, Remora, and 8x Arc Eyes 3 will work together? I am worried about power consumption and SparkCE is higher priority. Thanks.
