Do you have QtCreator installed?

No.. I don't know what is needed..

By the way, good move on allowing only one instance of the simulator when more than one model editor is open.

Usual problem is things keep being updated. I'm still running QT 4.7.4 as it works. If you download the latest, it may not be 100% compatible. Might be worth trying it though.
http://qt-project.org/downloads
Is where to get it.
This is a full IDE that lets you look at/edit the screens graphically, edit the sources and then just hit a button to compile and run it. It includes the ability to run under debug and set breakpoints.

Still another small bug Mike:

mainwindow.cpp:58:26: fatal error: serialDialog.h: No such file or directory

On linux/unix operating system case matters...

the file is named serialdialog.h you cannot include it as serialDialog.h

Interesting, I'll check but I thought my build under linux in a virtualbox was working OK.

i see that in the repository is indeed stored as lower case letters...
I was trying to compile as João asked me to check if is possible to make window smaller... I found some issue in safety switches and model setup tabs...
in both tabs, there are indeed too many controls vertically stacked..., that's why in c9x we have custom switches in two columns.

My netbook screen size is locked and I've always missed the higher channels display on the sim and some other screens. My netbook is my field computer I use to update my TXs or others that need help. It would be great if eepe's display size was flexible in the future.

Its probably because while I'm compiling under linux, the files are on a "network" drive under windows. I'll fix mainwindow.cpp anyway.

SM: Is the Sim any better now?

I've managed to squeeze the height of the model edit window down to 645. This will be in the next revision.

Odd, rechecked and all is OK. Maybe, for some reason, you aren't getting the connection to the googlecode site.
Anyone else with this problem?

I just updated eepe and the radio.. eepe detected the latest version as always.. but it was set to the atmega128. don't know if it is different with the ersky9x..

Mike, you addded only the ch% to the timer, right? no Ch? I'm asking because I normally use the thr only to trigger the timer..

Re: eePe Announcements

OK, the only difference I may have a little differently is I do have a copy of "eepskye r381.exe" in the eepe directory (I renamed the r381 version of eepskye.exe to eeskye r381.exe). and I created 3 short cuts for each version. while the normal eepskye.exe is being updated I still get to keep the eepskye r381, cause that is my 'flying' Tx uses with ersky r178 which I know there is no reported glitches in.

Could the coexistence of "eepe.exe" "eesskye.exe" and "eepskye r381.exe" cause such problem?
I never update the FW via "eepskye r381.exe" after r178 but I did with "eeskye.exe" to down load the ersky9x r186 and stored in a folder. and the "eepskye r381.exe" also show the last version is r186 which is correct ask if I want to update to r389 and that is correct too.
Sounds complicated? ;)
I don't think that would cause this issue. But both eepe.exe and eepskye.exe is not updating either the GUI nor the FW for Tx today.

Yesterday I had no problem updating from previous version of both eepe or eepskye to r389 (that is now the eepskye.exe) or r186 and r807.

I've just launched eepskye and it asked me if I wanted to download r188, so I guess is all good?

which version you had? eepskye and ersky9x?

edit: I just uninstalled eepe and reinstalled an old version r379 and restart. it asked me to update to r389 which I did. and r389 was installed. But the same thing:
current version r807. check-> no newer version. same with eepskye.

got the latest eepe, eepskye, and then this version asked me if I wanted to download the latest ersky9x.. That is how it's supposed to be I believe?

I've been "playing" with telemetry. I have a second tab in the telemetry display. If you connect a serial port to the telemetry pinson the back of a DJT module, you now get values displayed for A1 A2 and the RSSI values.

My initial reason for doing this is to provide a means to configure the alarm settings in the Tx module from within eepe/eepskye. I may, however, extend the functionality to display all the telemetry data for test purposes.

Excellent Mike. I used the original Frsky module data pgm and later the one I believe the megasound designer developed I liked better. As soon as er9x supported setting the DJT RSSI level I stopped using all computer programs. Mainly I wanted to set the factory RSSI to 43 or low enough to reduce the random RSSI beeps. After that I let er9x worry about the levels.
I think you mentioned not using or wiring RXD usually to pin 2 on the DJT module, or supporting it in er9x in the future. I'm not sure if it was to save code space or for better hardware comparability?
In any case we would lose the ability to change the factory set internal RSSI value.
If I'm understating your post here, you'll add that feature in eepe so with a serial able we'll be able to set the internal DJT or DHT alarm values via the data port and eliminate that module mod requirement. In fact if a cable is used to connect the same data connector into the 9x er9x mod through the 9x case back, no module mod is required at all. All just plug in and keep it stock.
I like that idea for those worried about voiding the Certs on their approved unmodified modules.
Win win. That was the missing feature but it will require a USB to serial adapter to a 3 pin FM servo connector. Easy enough to do.

That's the general idea. You will need a 4-pin connector for the module, the pins are:
RxD
TxD
+5V
Gnd

For this, I've also got shared source files for both eepe and eepskye so they will both get the same facilities together.

I would guess I can use the frsky serial adapter that I use to update the sound module, right? Also can I use this feature with a modified DJT and with it inserted in the radio? Thanks.
