I am a nooby but I did build a project and have tried to load the software and run it. I saw it on the internet and wanted to build it. It is a flight data display. I do not know if I can use his name or name of the project while asking for help.
I built the project and downloaded the sketch and librarys from the source maker. I have been trying to install the librarys but it fails to properly install. However I have found the main sketch and loaded it. It will compile and upload but not run the program and display any thing on the display. There are multiple warnings but nothing that says it will not run or cause an error and exit.
There are 12 includes of files .h and .ccp files at the top of the sketch. I am trying to read through the program but do not understand sequence of how the programs operate through the IDE compiler.
My first question is what sequence does the program go through when compiling and loading the program? Does it go through each of the includes in order that they are listed in the include list or does it go through the program and go to the includes when called by the main part of the program?
Second question If a sensor is bad or missing and provides no data will a sketch continue or just stall untill repaired?
Some of the errors say the pin numbers have been redefined in different places but are not used that I can find so far. The LCD library redefines pins that are not even connected and are getting warnings about it. The sketch still says it loads but it is not doing anythng to the display yet and it should make a page outline.
Any pointers or information would sure help to trouble shoot the sketch.
