Using the Hi object?

April 26, 2011 | 5:13 pm

Hi guys, i’m trying to use the Hi object to connect a Playstation 3 controller to use in max msp. I’ve copied the help file of ‘Hi’ into my patch and i’ve clicked menu to find the ps3 controller of which it does. I then click on Poll 10 but i don’t seem to be getting any data through? Any one know where i’m going wrong?

Are you certain it isn’t getting any data? Have you tried connecting a print object to it?

I just connected the print object to it and i wasn’t getting anything.

ive been getting intermittent issues where the hi object will stop sending out data (running in a m4l patch). Reloading the patch seems to solve it, but it is troubling…

Hi, I think you might need to download a driver for the PS3 controller. I ran into the same problem and found this link: http://tattiebogle.net/index.php/ProjectRoot/Ps3Controller . Hope it helps.
