I just got my set of Xadow modules in the mail. I’m very excited. They are easy to put together and I got a few demo sketches running. I do have a few questions, though.
2.2.18 is the latest FTDI driver, dated mid-2012. Will that work with Mac OSX Mavericks? So far it has, though I had to reboot my mac first.
Does Xadow work with Arduino IDE 1.5.4?
Do I need to upgrade the USBPort.cpp and boards.txt if I already have IDE 1.5.4, which also includes Leonardo support?
Docs say to use Leonardo, but the new boards.txt includes a Xadow definition. Which should I use? So far using Leonardo is fine.
I can get the battery voltage from the main board. Is there a way to turn that into an estimate of battery life, or at least a percentage? What are the voltage ranges?
Working with the LED shield. It appears to only do letters and numbers. I see that some punctuation work, like comma and exclamation point. What is the full set of characters it supports?
Is there a way to reflash the LED module itself? Can we look at the source to the LED module? (never mind, I found it on the wiki).
Is there a way to control individual LEDs so we can make pictures? Can we make the module blink instead of scrolling?
LED Shield I’m calling dispString(“abcdefg”,7,300) per the demo code. It does show the letters scrolling, then it briefly shows ’05’ sideways before going back to the letters. Why?
Is there a way to change the address of the LED board so I could use two of them?
- the OLED_Brightness_Control example does not compile. The first line inside of loop() is malformed. It’s just "Serial.” After I commented that out it works. Can I update this in the wiki?
- example code doesn’t compile.
Xadow6DOFTest:14: error: ‘MPU6050’ does not name a type
Is the .h file not set up correctly?
Are there any docs for it beyond this? Is there an API? Can I query the radio status, change parameters, or add profiles? The example code just shows manipulating a bunch of PORT variables, no actual API.
Thank you. What is the best way to contribute documentation or code back? Should we edit the wiki or something in github?
