Issues with blade lockup, clash, melt, and editing in ProffieOS7.11

Just started playing around with ProffieOS7 the other day. I installed ProffieOs7.11 into a couple of my LGT lightsabers and loaded them with basic and complex blade styles, but nothing overly complicated. I borrowed one of the sample config files to create my own config, with some modifications. This is the first part without the blade styles:

#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 FETT263_TWIST_OFF
#define FETT263_TWIST_ON
#define MOTION_TIMEOUT 60 * 15 * 1000
#define IDLE_OFF_TIME 5 * 60 * 1000
#define FETT263_MAX_CLASH 16

Mostly everything works as expected; however, blade lockup hardly registers unless I stab the wall or something. Melt sometimes works, and sometimes doesn’t. Clash also barely registers for a couple of my sound fonts.

I also initially had #define ENABLE_ALL_EDIT_OPTIONS in my config, but after I inadvertently screwed up a couple blade styles (which required reflashing the proffieboard to fix it), I deleted that line of code to disable the editing option.

So I guess my question is two-fold: Do I need to tweak the clash settings to fix the blade lockup and clash issues? And are there any instructions about the edit function? All I saw was how to access it by pressing the power button 4 times. I don’t anticipate using the edit function at all, but would still like to know how it works.

I also just saw that ProffieOS7.12 was * just* released; would that help with my current issues?

Clash, Lockup and Melt all use CLASH_THRESHOLD_G, if it’s hard to trigger, lower the value.

7.12 fixes a few minor things with Special Abilities. I’d update just because it has known fixes but you just need to set a good CLASH_THRESHOLD_G value.

Thanks, Fett. Does the clash threshold require a lower value in general for OS7? I have been using 3.0 for the clash threshold in my other LGT proffie sabers with OS6, which has been working well.

I’m also curious about the editing functioning; is there a guide on how it works? I ended up completely erasing the color of the blade when I accessed the editor; only blaster and lightning blocks were visible.

Depends on the saber, the clash detection was updated in OS7, lower the value until it is easy enough to trigger without getting false clashes.
