hi everyone, quick question. i've got my saber almost finished, but cant upload the code into the board. getting the failed to sync message. i've tried all the usual solutions. different usb cable/port, different computer, checked all my soldering, triple checked all my settings, etc... just no luck. any advice??? thank you!
I am trying something probably very stupid. I have a RGB illuminated switch that I'd like to use with my DIYino board, neopixel blade, and LSOS, ideally having the switch match the selected blade color. I know using a single neopixel would be a smarter move as a matching accent LED, but I don't have another place on my hilt that I'd like to put an accent LED.I see in the Config.h file a place where I can define MULTICOLOR_ACCENT_LED, but as far as I can tell, there is nowhere in the entirety of the rest of the code where that is used. Is there a way to do this, or am I stuck just picking the color of my LED during construction, and sticking with it? If I can, what pins should I connect it to? I'd love to still use blade power-off feature with the built in MOSFETs on the DIYino, but if I need to repurpose the PWM digital pins, I have another beefier MOSFET I can use to kill power to the neopixels.Feel free to educate me on how I'm being an idiot and not understanding what I'm doing. I'd rather learn than think I'm right.
If you look at some of my LightSaberOS code I used an RGB Cree with a WS2811 chip. The only really imporant change was that I simply made the first pixel represent the blaster block effect. I also made the ignition sequence fade up and down which affected the whole blade, and the meter effect for the menus lit the first pixel in accordance with the level. The main reason I really did this was really for illuminated blade plugs.
Is it possible to resuse the neopixel lib to drive these LEDs? If yes, that would be great, as no need to use another API.
