Can we get sample code for NXTServo-v3 with PiStorms
Seth T 05.04.2017
You got it, done! https://github.com/mindsensors/PiStorms/pull/16 If you download a fresh copy of the PiStorms library (and run setup.sh) you'll get it. For instructions see: https://github.com/mindsensors/PiStorms

Is the PSP-Nx compatible with PISTORMS? And if not are you thinking of adding support for it?
Seth T 05.22.2017
PiStorms does not currently support the PSP-Nx. It is a bit necessary though. The PiStorms runs on a fully features Raspberry Pi, on which you could use PyGame to read almost any joystick. See my 00-Tetris example in the 60-Games folder for an example: Here is documentation on the joystick module https://www.pygame.org/docs/ref/joystick.html and the source for Tetris https://github.com/mindsensors/PiStorms/blob/master/programs/60-Games/00-Tetris.py#L139 (search for the word "jostick")
