    Hi,

    This feature is not implemented yet in the profile designer. We are working hard to make new features in the profile designer, like LED controls.

    [/blockquote]

     

    I just ordered another 4 SBricks to control various functions in a train/city layout. I am still missing some degree of automatization such as blinking, programmable sequences, random flickering (fire!) etc. that can be assigned to SBrick ports and turned on/off with a button. Any news on this?

    Jakob, Thanks for your suggestions. Unfortunately you can't give "seperate names" to two diferent control if you want to use them with the same port. 

    [/blockquote]

    Well, it used to be like that - the 'cosmetic name' is one thing, the 'channel' is another.

    Right now, the two fields is hard-linked - so why have both??? (if that is the case..)

    [/blockquote]

    They are not totally linked with each other. If you change the control's name, it will change the channel, but you can also set the channel name independently.

    Nelson, the joystickprofil isn't available at the moment, but it will available in the future again.

    Just did a new profile yesterday (https://designer.sbrick.com/?profile=4276) and miss two things in that process:

    1: Naming vs. channel name.
    The name seems to be forced into the channelname, meaning you now need to have the channelname as the controlname - that is not vey productive!

    In my case, I have two buttons for each channel, each sening 1 or -1 out, and I would like to have seperate names for the two controls, making it easier to select in the list.. That used to be the case, so bug?

    2: Multiselct = delete/move/duplicate items :-)
    Making two controls that needs to be dubplicated 3 times, would ease creation, right now you need to create all items and set then all up one-by-one.. tedious.. :-/

    Hi Everyone,

    The new Profile Designer version is out in the wild. We made some design changes, as well lot of bugfix and perfomance fix.

    The biggest thing is that the minimap is gone. Since the  workspace is always fit into the browser initial size there is no need.
    Also, the sidebar is cleaned up, we need that free space for future improvements.

    Bugfixes:
    - We had issues with control deletions, that caused the effect when the close button, or the background duplicated, and the controls didn't work on the devices.
    - Several fixes here and there.

    If you find any error, don't hesitate to share with us!

    The wiki is updated as well: https://social.sbrick.com/wiki/view/pageId/10/slug/user-guide-for-profile-designer

    Hi there,

    Currently you can't add or remove the Close button. Your problems seems rare to me, would you be so kind to provide me some more information?
    - What browser do you use, and what's your profile ID?
    - Do you have any plugins in your browser? (i'm courius about content blockers)

    Hi Zsolt!

    I have removed my design and rebuild it new. It works now very well. The ID is 3427.

    Normaly I use the most used browser mozilla firefox, sometimes IE.

    I have installed google chrome only for using your designer.

    No plugins.

    By the way, how do you place the functionicons to the background

    I checked it, and it seems ok until the Joystick, but you should set the Sliders channel parameter too. The Name parameter is just a cosmetic thing in the Profile Designer. We know it's not obvious, and we're working on a more accurate way. (Also, bigger features coming soon).

    Anyway, if you can't set the channel parameter, try to empty your browsers cache, maybe something stucked within...

    [/blockquote]

    That worked. Indeed, I only set the name, but not the channel. That also explains why all the sliders operated the same function.

    Thanks for your help !! Now I can refine the Profile. I 'm planning to put this SBricks model on display at Lego World 2015.

    I'm glad to hear that. :) Have fun!

    What exactly do you mean with Profile ID's ? 

    If it's the number in the URL of the PD, then it's: 3458

    The one in which the sliders don't work:

    https://designer.sbrick.com/?profile=3458

    The old ones that do work:

    https://designer.sbrick.com/?profile=910

    Thanks, i asked about the number :) I will look into it as soon as possible.

    Currently I'm having trouble designing the profile I want. I've just made an SBrick-version of my Backhoe Loader V2 and I want the profile to have 4 sliders and 2 joysticks.

    But the sliders mess things up: only the functions of the joysticks show up in the App (both Android and iOS). But only 1 sliders shows up, which is allways called "Slider", no matter what name you gave it in the Profile-Designer. 

    As a test I made a profile with only 2 sliders. It allready had these problems, and both sliders in the profile controll the same function in the MOC.

    The older profiles I have (which also have 2 or more sliders) work perfectly, So it looks like there something going wrong in the Profile-designer.

    Hi sbrick!

    While I'm playing around with the designer, the Quitbutton doesn't work anymore, so i wanted to delete an rebuild it. But where is the deletebutton? 

    And sometimes the cursor will not release the Button or slider so I carried a button out of the screen and it will not come back or rebuild new.

    So, I may have to delete my design and build it up new.

    When you make a new profil, you need to use 16:9 screen ratio. In other case you won't see your profile in the market on iPhone 5s.

    Hi from Germany!

    I have got my two sbricks on Thuesday this week.

    After I have created  a Testing Profile and saved it, it will not be shown on my IPhone 5s,  Marketplace "My own creation". So how can it be downloaded?

    I'm signed in.

    Thank' a lot

    Greetings

    I think it's worth doubling this post:

    For those who, like me with a Galaxy Note tablet, experienced dismorphed controls (ugly oval joysticks, rectangle squares, etc...), it is caused by the 16:10 screen dimensions (1280 x 800 in my case). With my new phone that has a 1280 x 720 screen, circles are round, squares are squares and the controls appear right where I place them in the designer.

    I will make a test with pictures that had colors rendering problems with my tablet and see if it works better on the phone.

    Is the bug located in the app or in the profile designer ? I can't answer this point...
