Help with my saber

I don’t know where to go, this is the story I bought an LGT saber from AliExpress they sold me a proffie upgrade and the config file is called Xenopixel.h obviously they just copied and pasted the xeno file to the proffie board long story short it’s a mess, no audio prompts it’s basically on or off and switching blade styles all the fonts are not designed for proffie there’s zero accent swings, the volume is set way to low it has 3 settings low, high, off the entire setup is a train wreck their tech support is worthless.

So I’ve watched 3-4 hour long YouTube videos, multiple webpages I’ve spent aprox 8hrs going over videos and webpages trying to figure this out first off props to everyone who can do this, I’m very tech savvy but my god this is next level stress management.

So what happens is I’ll start watching a tutorial and get halfway and get lost, either they are creating the config file and I don’t understand where they are going and get frustrated?

Where I’ve gotten so far

I’ve got all the software and driver steps done including arduino all setup correctly, the proffie os downloaded, the windows drivers zdeg whatever it’s called completed etc

I’m literally at the part where you start editing configs except I don’t need to edit I need to start from scratch since I’ve been sold a nightmare.

I basically want to create a new config file from scratch tailored to the proffie v2.2 and the latest proffie OS. I want to setup my own song tracks files folder I want all the gesture controls basically a full fledged proffie saber.

I want to use fonts purchased from various webpages I’ve bought such as greyscale and saber fonts.com. I want to increase the speaker volume mine was preset at 1500 which is too low it’s a 24mm 3w 8ohm speaker.

Can someone help me into the right direction I would greatly appreciate it everytime I sit down and invest a few hours into this I get stuck somewhere.

Anyone that replies I value your time, help and guidance very much sincerely

Well, attaching it to the category description wasn’t the right place, so I moved this post into a new thread, specifically for helping you with your problems.

I’m not sure exactly what you’re asking for though. If you tell us where you’re stuck, what isn’t working, what error messages you’re getting and what your config file looks like, then we can easily help you get to the next step.

Changing the volume is easy, you just edit the volume number in the config file. Maybe change it to 2000 and see if that is loud enough? A 24mm speaker isn’t going to handle the highest volumes, so going higher than that might be risky.

The rest sounds mostly like building presets, and the easiest thing to do is probably to use Fett263s style library and just pair it up with one of your fonts.

Have you looked at the proffie v2.2 website? Proffieboard V2
I would suggest starting there and i would actually double check all the wiring if you are able to get to the board without any major surgery. Its is the easiest place to start. I has links to all the manuals as well as wiring diagrams. You shouldn’t have to read too deep into it to make sure that the board was installed and wired correctly.
Did they send you a copy of the proffieos they used?
If so what version is it, did they make any custom files> ex. prop files, config files, and the like.
I know that a few times I was working on my first proffie saber i messed up some files and decided to just start over and reflashed mine and picked up from there.
That is also an option if need be.
Like i said above, they proffieboard website as well as here have some of the best info and manuals for starting ground floor and working your was up.

Let us know what you can find out.
