    Hi Folks,

    I tried to log in into the Designer today. typed in my existing login credentials, instead of taking me to the application, it takes me to the landing page of the social forum instead! Is someone from the dev team is aware of this, please? Clearing browser cache did not help much.

    Thanks,

    Peter

    Adding to the story:

    I have had to reset both the brick and the phone several times, not it works with some profiles.

    Still having a weird issue: the profile I created for the iPhone (3:2 ratio) is not showing up in my profiles, while the other one, and only this one (ratio 16:9) is there and it works.

    Any ideas are welcome (again):-)

    Hi,

    I have recently joined the TestFlight. I have created profiles both for the iPhone 4S and the iPad2 with the sugegsted aspect ratios.

    My brief findings:

    1. I can see only one profile (the one created for the iPad2), while I wanted to see the one I created for the iPhone. I have read on this forum, that the app automatically recognizes the device and selects only the profile with the appropriate profile settings. Apaprently, there is something wrong around here.

    2. I wanted to connect the SBrick, but the app has just quit upon selection of the profile (wanted to check the port tester). Re-booted the phone, deleted all profiles and re-entered them from scratch, no results so far.:-(. Whenever I try to enter a standard profile to configure the channels, the app quits.

    I am over several reboots and complete resets.

    Any ideas are very welcome:-)

    Today FIXES:

    - If you have profiles with 4:3 aspect ratio You need to remove, and recreate your Joysticks to get circle shape. Sorry for that.
    - If you experienced that some of your setted controls are missing from the apps, you have to save your profile, and download the updated version in the Apps. After that, it must be fixed.

    Now PD works!! i can make and save correctly my profiles, BUT with a useless android app (the official and the simple one) is only a webpage to drag and drop objects.

    I think in the future yes, i can imagine a functionality like that.

    Currently no, but we are working on it.

    It's an APP miss function thing, please report it here: https://social.sbrick.com/forums/topic/29/sbrick-android-app/view/page/11

    Hello. What is optimal for the PD for an image format and size?
    And what is better than JPG for a file format ??

    [/blockquote]

    To get the best background quality for this profile you should upload and use images with 1920*1080 resolution.

    The best format is PNG.

    Thanks, NXT 45 R,

    that looks really good.

    I'll give it a go.

    Now, for your next challenge, can you make the slider reset to its 'zero' position when the reset button is pressed? :)

    Thanks! It took a while to figure it out.

    Sadly no. It would have to be programmed into the app somehow. (Like the port tester)

    Thanks, NXT45R.

    As for the Auto-Reset...

    I don't want the slider to automatically return to the centre position because I want to be able to leave the motor running at whatever speed I choose. I do, however, want to be able to turn the motor 'OFF'. Using the slider does not actually turn the motor OFF, it just stops turning but it still receives a signal (and makes a horrible noise!).

    What I'd like is a RESET button, like in the Port Tester, which will turn OFF the motor completely (and, in an ideal world, reset the slider to zero).

    Thanks in advance for any guidance.

    Yes, we want to achive functionality like what you said.

    profile working again and new profiles visible from within app.

    thanks for whatever hard work you have been doing in the background.

     

    I tried assigning both a slider and a button to a single port, to try to achieve my goal of a non-auto-zero slider that could be reset (i.e. switched off) by using the button - just like the RESET button in the port tester.

    I failed :(

    I've tried a range of possible solutions (thanks NXT 45 R and others) but nothing seems to work.

    Since it is quite clearly possible to achieve this (just look at how the port tester does it), would it be possible to allow the same functionality in the Profile Designer, please?

    Thanks in advance.

    Conor

     

    PS should I be putting this request in a different part of the forum?

    We want create some controls, and options like that in the near future, but currently it's not possible.

    Of course in code everything can be done! Like in the port tester. :)

    But comparing the port tester with the profile concept, is not quite the samething.

    While the port tester is just a single implementation, profile involve an architecture and concept design that must be well though, for it to work correctly and scale, if we think in terms of efective software development practices.

    If this is considered, of course it can be implemented. :)

     

    On a different note, the LEGO PF Speed Remote controller also has one reset button for each dialer, for a similar reason and more than that.
