RFID problems

i need help, im fairly new to maxmsp/jitter. i intend to use several RFID tags, each linking to a separate animation.
i am using a phidget reader, however i can only get it to recognise RFID tags as a single trigger.
how can i make it recognise different tag identities? and use those identities for different animations?

if anyone has any advice or is able to help make a patch that would be awesome

Check out hcgilje’s resources, there’s a max patch in there too:


I don’t understand what you mean by “i can only get it to recognise RFID tags as a single trigger”, do you mean you are getting one value from all tags? Readers/tags normally output an ASCII string of 10 characters or so, hc’s patch reads this with a serial object, I presume your phidget is using USB serial port too?
