Could you post the code for your AE monitor? Also, nice API I am using it for a Redstone Flux monitor. It shows percentage and amount for each cell and all of them put together.

Yeah, I'd be happy to upload my AE network code. I'll upload it later today when I get back home, and am able to pull the appropriate files.

I'd be curious to find out how you managed to pull information from RF battery cells. I have 4 Redstone Energy Cells (stores, and outputs RF/MJ), but I cannot seem to find the appropriate methods to pull charge information.

EDIT: This snippet is run on an independent Advanced Computer block, which is placed just underneath the ME network's controller block (in my world at least), and wraps the controller as a peripheral. It should work well enough to report basic information, with minuscule changes.

local ctrl = peripheral.wrap("top")

function ParseMsg(id, msg)
  --if (id == 4) then
    if (msg == "Query_BYTES_TOTAL") then
      rednet.send(id, ctrl.getTotalBytes())
    if (msg == "Query_BYTES_FREE") then
      rednet.send(id, ctrl.getFreeBytes())
    if (msg == "Query_BYTES_USED") then
      rednet.send(id, ctrl.getUnusedBytes())
    if (msg == "Query_SLOTS_TOTAL") then
      rednet.send(id, ctrl.getTotalItemTypes())
    if (msg == "Query_SLOTS_FREE") then
      rednet.send(id, ctrl.getRemainingItemTypes())
    if (msg == "Query_SLOTS_USED") then
      rednet.send(id, ctrl.getTotalItemTypes() - ctrl.getRemainingItemTypes())

function ReceiveAsync()
  while true do
    id, msg, time = rednet.receive()
    ParseMsg(id, msg)

Thanks :P btw, to read the RF you have to have OpenPeripheral installed, and I used wired modems to connect to my cells. the methods are something like getMaxEnergyStored("string") and getEnergyStored("string") and the string isn't used for anything, I usually just pass in "nil".

Sorry about the late reply

Thanks, I'll give it a shot whenever I get on next. I didn't think the RF/MJ cells were even supported in the newest mod version releases (1.6.2 I believe it is).

No worries. I've been somewhat busy myself so I've not even had time to play around on Minecraft.
