Add gestures to sa22c simplified 😁

Hello there fellow saber enthusiasts :wave:t4: I just wanted to add a simplified short tutorial on how to get sa22c gestures on to your proffieboard and how to set it up :film_strip: because I did not grasp it fully when in tried it :roll_eyes: :unamused: so if you have the same troubles I had here is a really simplified explanation :blush:

Download the file in

Then head to ProffieOs folder :open_file_folder: then the Props folder :open_file_folder: replace the sa22c folder with the one you downloaded

then go to your config folder :open_file_folder: go to your config file :memo: paste in this text and modify it how ever you want that fits your needs

#include "proffieboard_v2_config.h"
#define NUM_BLADES 1
#define NUM_BUTTONS 1
#define VOLUME 1550
const unsigned int maxLedsPerStrip = 144;
#define ENABLE_WS2811
#define ENABLE_SD
#define SA22C_STAB_ON
#define SA22C_THRUST_ON
#define SA22C_SWING_ON
#define Sa22C_SWING_ON_SPEED 250
#define SA22C_TWIST_ON
#define SA22C_TWIST_OFF
#define IDLE_OFF_TIME 60*5*1000
#define SAVE_STATE

Swing speed number can be modified or just delete that #define and ad the #define ON you like save changes you made to your config
:memo: then upload it with adurino :arrow_heading_up:

Have fun with your saber :blush:

If you edit your post so that

only the text from the config file is inside the 3 backticks, 

and you have the backticks on their own lines, your comments will show up correctly.

Yes, I’m using a screenshot for demonstration purposes only.

Done :slight_smile: and done hehe

Better, right? Nice.


Many thanks for writing this. I only ran into one issue that was not covered here. In my config file, I already had a different include for a different button’s file. I had to of course comment out the old file in the CONFIG_PROP section and add the new file in that same section.

It might be worth adding this to your directions so that if others come looking like I did, they would know to do this as well.

Again, thank you…

Agreed, the example of the CONFIG_TOP section should also show the CONFIG_PROP part where the prop file you want to include is set.
For convenience of switching props easily in the future, commenting out the lines and adding new ones is fine. I do it all the time.
I just wanted to clarify it’s perfectly fine to just edit the file name in place.
Additionally, it’s on page 27 of the manual:
