SimuCUBE Open Source Firmware Development Update Thread 2

firmware

#424

Ok, noted. I do not think this was changed for this firmware version, though.


#425

also, in the ‘hardware setup’ tab, if i configure the motor and go into the “automatic commutation setup”, it does it’s thing (wheel moves back and forth), then says “Center the wheel”.

i center it and press ‘next’.
it says “initializing” then “initialization complete, press next to continue”.
when i press ‘next’ it says

“set wheel center point” and press ‘next’
i do that, then it says “processing”, then “set wheel center point” and press ‘next’
i do that, then it says “processing”, then “set wheel center point” and press ‘next’
i do that, then it says “processing”, then “set wheel center point” and press ‘next’
this repeats over and over until i press ‘cancel’ instead of ‘next’.

note: i haven’t done much UI testing lately, because my wheel “just works” (thank you!), so some of this may not have anything to do with recent changes.


#426

Ok, probably I will have to just add a note that the motor configuration wizard does not work. It does work on my sincos encoder, maybe something got broken with biss when using the automatic commutation.


#427

Yep, I am using SinCos here too, like discussed earlier this morning, mine worked without any hassles. So probably something small only.

Testing has been going very well, super-stable with no bugs on my end :slight_smile:


#428

I will go to the office and test the wizard with biss-c if we have that motor where it used to be. Release will be later today after my testing.


#429

I drove several hours with v0.50.2 on dirt rally 2.0 and I had no problem on encoder 10000 ppr


#430

Also the X12 input configuration is missing for some reason. I’ll investigate.

edit: and that is fixed. So, all thats left is to test the biss-c motor config dialog.


#431

I have biss c encoder and didnt have problems. Also no problems with reconfiguring the center


#432

@Mika, you’re welcome to send me the beta if you need another biss c encoder to test on.


#433

I did run into the issue here at the office. I had to add a bit of delay. But the functions done by the firmware are identical at that point, so maybe its related to individual system and their things.


#434

release is out. SimuCUBE Open Source Firmware Public Beta release thread


#436

Simucube firmware version 0.50.4 is available for testing. I would like someone to now test upgrade from 0.10.x (should not be possible anymore, firmware update will stop) and from 0.11.2 (should work OK.)


#437

I am available to test but I am on version 0.50.3


#438

Is 0.50.4 going to release today?


#439

I will try to accomplish that. There were no testers who could test upgrade from 0.10.x, and there are no other changes in the firmware, so a bit hesitant to release…
