Moz77, I am using your script for my dj hero deck and its working great thank you for your contribution it has been of great value to me.

lets say i want to use both decks... and both decks to have individual midi controls not share the same variables. How can I change the script to recognize two decks?
it looks like that script should already allow the left and right decks, with each deck having its own data and variables..

really? i never tried it i just assumed that since it wasnt described as two decks that it would need to be altered. ill give that a shot thanks for your quick response i do appreciate it.

ok yes, there are two sets of variables listed on the variables tab in glovepie once the script has been activated.

but, both sets of data were mapped to 1 wiimote. i can see that my other remote is indeed connected, i can open the properties of both remotes and see that i am getting a signal.. so not a pairing problem.

any advice on how i can get glovepie to split the data between the two remotes? if you'd rather not explain it, a link to a tutorial or simple statement to google will do... i dont mind doin the work to figure it out but if someone already knows well then... reinventing the wheel never got anyone anywhere :)

thanks to everyone here for their contributions you guys make my pointless hobbies possible and thats just great. any info on the topic would be greatly appreciated.
yeah, if i remember right, just change all the 'wiimote' to 'wiimote1' and 'wiimote2' for the second controller. it's been a while since i was messing around with that stuff, but that should work
pointless hobbies ftw!!

bout to test it out. got the balance board run'n midi through a script i found, another wiimote w. nunchuck in a differnt prog in VM sending midi over vlan, 3 oldish blackberry bluetoothd with different keymapping input apps, 2 ati old school wonder remotes mapped, but i do have at least have a real midi keyboard from radioshack lol. if i was a rich man, i'd go buy some gear to do all this... but im not so i gotta be creative.

basically, this script isnt just saving me time producing but its saving me $$$ cause i can use all these other perephrial devices to do the same thing expensive midi controllers do pretty much, i wouldnt call these things professional equipment by themselves but it can be done well if its done right. plus most of them are light, portable, cross platform, not going out of style ever, cheap, can do other stuff besides just be a $2000 keyboard, so many advantages to using scripting programs like Glovepie.

im loving glovepie, this loopbe, midiox midi yoke stuff, bluetooth'n up some random stuff in my house, turn'n them into FL studio and ableton midi controllers, traktor is actually fun to use now when before i hated it when someone insisted on me using it, and the ppjoy virtual joystick midi controllers, its like omg.

best forum thread, ever, official. thanks so much for this i can't tell you how much this has improved my daily life lol thats probably sad but i stand by it.
if you like glovepie scripting, you might check out virtual dj pro. it's got a scripting language that makes midi mapping and custom controls waaay easier. i considered switching over to traktor, but once i started mapping the midi, it really wasn't easy, if even possible, to do the same things.

haha, yeah. it took quite some time to even find a bit of info about doing this, and i'm not sure i can even find the original again.
but yeah, if you need any help with any of the scripting, feel free to ask.

I have returned to publicly confess that I have totally been doing this all wrong. Only now did i realize that there is a cover on the side of the mixer that pops off allowing for two decks to connect with one remote. I have really gone out of my way rewriting the midi mappings for two remotes with two totally different sets of variables... all of the questions I had about why this script is written the way that it is were answered the moment I knocked my mixer off the table and the side covering popped off.

I've been a fool, a noob even, it's so obvious! I cannot believe I have had this stuff since Christmas and I JUST NOW noticed, and now the variables LTT and RTT finally make sense. I have written the MAC address of each wiimote on its assigned set of turntables, and on the wiimote, so I would not have to worry getting them mixed up. My logic was functional, but still incorrect, my perspective on this issue was just so wrong. I suppose the universe has it's own way of dealing out justice and I probably had it coming anyway.

On the other hand it forced me to learn how to script with Glovepie and I have used that knowledge to tackle several other issues I have had with controlling midi in a DAW or DJ program. Thanks for taking the time to post this topic and to help out a random stranger.

Ive been using these things almost every day for 9-10 months and just now noticed.... ridiculous, the shame!

One thing for sure wrong with my script is I have LTT assigned twice. Since last post I have decided to just use the right turn table on each mixer to eliminate the need for the LTT variable.

I have managed to get my computer to recieve midi from the wiimote/djhero/glovepie/midiyoke configuration again. However, in the bottom corner of Deckadance (the software I am using) it displays incoming midi signals. It just cycles over and over let its getting constantly hit with midi notes. Must be some place in the script causing an infinate loop of midi notes or something like that.
