Added Mindflex prefix to the channels so they can be identified when running in parallel with other plugins.

Can you please give instructions on how to mod(ify) a mindflex for use with LucidScribe?
I don’t have a Mindflex myself. Perhaps you can make sense of what James wrote here or ask for some more detailed instructions: https://lucidcode.com/LucidScribe/comment-page-1/#comment-1680.
Thank you, that helped.
In short: You just have to connect Ground, Tx and Rx from the ThinkGear AM to a FTDI adapter, that’s all.
Additionally, you may want to mod the TGAM to provide raw EEG data. In that case, you also have to add some solder to the resistor at B1 (the far left one) to connect it to VCC. This can be done without taking the board out of the MindFlex case. See http://wearcam.org/ece1766/neurosky_eeg_brainwave_chip_and_board_tgam1.pdf pages 7 and 8
But then you have to use the NeuroSky ThinkGear EEG plugin, not the MindFlex one.
Elite, thanks for leaving feedback.
I wonder if I just need to update the plugin code to also access the raw EEG data from Mindflex? 83 here: https://github.com/lucidcode/LucidScribe-Mattel-Mindflex/blob/master/Mattel%20Mindflex/PluginHandler.cs#L116-L126.
Well, it would maybe make sense to make one plugin out of both, since they are both for the NeuroSky ThinkGear AM, only in different configurations. But I don’t think it’s necessary. From what I’ve seen, most people are happy with the data the MindFlex provides without this change.
But I think it would be great if the MindFlex plugin could switch the output mode so one wouldn’t have to have a soldering iron. The mode can also be changed via the UART interface. I don’t think I could help though (except with testing), because I’m not a coder.
Hi ! I recently purchased a mindflex and intended to use it with LucidScribe, however for some reason the graph shows only the attention and meditation channels out of the 11 available (I did check them all to appear in the graph). I took a screenshot but I don’t know how to post it in the comment -_-“. Is there something I’m doing wrong ? I’ll add that I did not enable the raw data on my headset. Thanks !
Elite. Honored to hear that you got the Mindflex so you can use Lucid Scribe!
The standard has become to upload images to Imgur and then paste the link…
Have you tried uninstalling the Mindflex plugin and installing the ThinkGear EEG plugin? As discussed with steeph above, the Mindflex plugin only picks up the attention and meditation channels. I would still need to add the code to extract the rest of the channels, but that shouldn’t take much effort at all. So let me know if the ThinkGear EEG plugin doesn’t pick up the other channels, then I will see if I can update it.
After you have hacked the MindFlex, you have to use the Thinkgear Plugin. Out Of the box the MindFlex didn’t send all data. See the link above for how to modify the head band.
Are you able to trigger the audio tracks by looking around / blinking / frowning with the Mindflex?
It’s been some time that I tried it. I think I still haven’t tried it with the version with the updated eye movement detection. Sorry, a lot is happening right now. And I’ve decided to not pursue the tACS think any more for now. So I don’t have an important use for the REM detection/trigger.
I also shelved tACS for now and passed on the equipment to a user who drove to see me to have a look at a faulty Zeo. Give the new eye movement detection a shot with the audio tracks when you get a chance…
