no .hex file output


Im not getting the .hex file output.

I have the boxes selected in preferences but it's still not giving a .hex file when I compile? Only the .bin, .elf and .map files.

Would the board used affect it? Im using a Wemos D1 Pro.


Yes, the board selection affects the output file type. The compiled binary of the AVR boards is .hex. The compiled binary of the ESP8266 boards is .bin.

What do you want the .hex file for?
