Elechouse 32 Channel Servo Controller Problem

Hello everybody,

I have a hexapod that I bought that came with an elechouse 32 channel servo controller.  My goal is to get this thing going with a wireless PS2 controller and a arduino mega 2560 micro controller.  But so far I can't even get the legs to move properly.

I have searched on the internet about this controller and there is not much out there.  These are the links that I have found and the resources I have.

Manual compile and upload

We decided to get rid of the Arduino IDE for our project, and switch to make/avr-gcc/avrdude. Sure, the IDE is great for beginners and those who write small to medium-small projects, but it's awkward to use with larger projects using lots of files and several people coding at the same time. And the PC our university has provided to us is quite slow so some stuff take way too much time.

The transition wasn't as easy as we had hoped for though, and it took a day to figure everything out. So to hopefully make things smoother for others, here's how we did it.
