  • I had a problem with the Arduino Mega 2560 and this tutorial. I could not get the serial connection between processing and the arduino. The connection between openOSC and Processing worked fine, and i could toggle the led with the arduino serialmonitor. I WAS STUCK.

    Of an unknown reason (some techneard may be able to explain) the serial connection on the arduino mega has to be reset with an 10uF capasitor between the Reset port and GND on the arduino.

    And you have to call serial monitor 1 in processing:

        arduinoPort = new Serial(this, Serial.list()[1], 9600);    // Set arduino to 9600 baud

    good luck, works fine for me know, even on windows7 64bit

No public wish lists :(
