SBrick iOS App

    Thanks for the hint about the aspect ratio.  I had originally set my first one up as 16:9 but could never see it on my iPad Pro.  I changed it to 4:3 landscape and surprisingly it works.  Now it raises some questions....but I will keep experimenting before I ask any.

     

    Thanks for the tips

    To Zsolt, Lenard, all the others at SBrick, and my fellow AFOLs: THANK YOU!!!

    Even though I have struggled with this issue for a year, my initial suspicion was that I was doing something wrong (and no doubt something simple), and in the end, that turns out to be the case. So, I get to wear the dunce cap too!

    Although I have only been working with one profile lately (the others got deleted with various efforts to delete and rebuild my user-id at SBrick). it puzzled me that the only "MY Profile" to show up was the one on my old iPhone 5 which has an aspect ratio of 16:9.

    Truly, every time since then, when I would build a new "My Creation", I would blow past the initial definition phase, assuming that this aspect was standard on all iPhones.

    Wrong!

    Today, as soon as, one more time, I set up new "MY Creations" on my iPhone X and iPad with aspect ratios of 18.5:9 and 4:3 respectively, the new profiles appeared in the "My Profiles" section of the Remote Control Profile "MARKET". The new "My Creations" were completed, and both worked successfully on both devices with powered up SBricks.

    So, once again, Thank you. This is the relief one feels when one stops banging one's head against a wall.

    The good news for SBrick is that I will now proceed with my multi SBrick order to complete my train MOC.

    Peter Handley.

    Nice to hear that! Have fun!

    Also, i started to build an optional setting for the profile designer to be able to change the aspect ratio. It won't be ready today, but i hope it will see the light in the coming days. Stay tuned.

    Thank you Zsolt, at least the public profiles are working now, and I'll just have to create a new XS profile from scratch.

    Your help has been most appreciated.

    Hi Mark,

    As I can see, you only made 16:9 profiles yet and one 4:3 which is fine for the iPad. The 16:9 isn't compatible with the iPhone X or Xs or Xr.

    At least not right now.

    Thank you Zsolt, I didn't realise the X had a different screen ratio to the 6 Plus, DOH!

    Is it possible to convert profiles from one screen ratio to another?

    Sadly, it's not changeable. The aspect ratio plays a massive role about how we're calculating width and hight on different screen resolution and keep the sharpness of the images in the profile.

    Also not working for me. I didn't reinstall because I do have some profiles already loaded and don't want to lose them.

    I can't trigger the profile market at all. Have tried adding profiles to existing creations, starting new creations, updating custom profiles, and even trying to play with a creation with no profile so I get the prompt to download one.

    Not working.

    I also tried logging out, deleting the app, re-installing, and logging back in. No joy. Also tried just the guest account, and not working :(

    Hi,

     

    It seems fixed now. Guys, can you test is?

    Having just started with the Sbrick, I too am having the same problem that Mark describes, I can see the market public profiles but none of the ones I've made up using the designer.  Since I am trying to learn how to use the Sbrick to it's fullest it would be helpful if one could access a profile that you make for yourself.  My interest is in Lego trains and since the public profiles for the Horizon Express and the Emerald have disappeared, things are not good.  Can the public train profiles come back please?!

    Could Zsolt Szrapkó please stop posting “Test” as I get an email every time you do it!

    I'm sorry, i have to get rid of a pesky bug, and it's the easiest way to test it. I'll going to find out a different way to test, sorry again.

    Lénárd: I am glad to see some activity regarding the issue of design profiles not appearing on IOS devices with SBrick version 14. I deleted the SBrick App from my iPhone X and reinstalled it. Under a newly set up CREATION, I am able to see the MARKET of Remote Control Profiles, but only a nice list of Public profiles. Unfortunately, I do not see my private profile which I need to manage my Lego Train MOC using multiple SBricks to control four motorized switches at a time.

    Prior to the recent change, I was able to see the Public profiles some of the time, and they are appearing now. Thank you for your work on this issue, but the real payoff will come when I can access and implement my Private Profile(s).

    Killed and restarted app.

    Made a new creation called Test, and attempted to add a profile from Public and my personal ones.

    Hope that helps :)

    Thanks for this Mark, your video shows exactly the same functionality im experiencing, on the same app version. Have also deleted and reinstalled many times. The bug used to be intermittent so I do have some profiles set up, and dont want to lose them by reinstalling again. 

    Thank you Jayden.

     

    Dear Mark, Jayden,

    Restart the app, please, i turned on the logs, hopefully i will see the problem.

    Thank you! KT

    This still works ok on my iPhone 6 Plus with iOS 12, even from a fresh install.

    OK, thanks!

    I think I found the bug. Can you check the market within a "guest session"?

    I deleted and reinstalled, logged in, no change.

    I then deleted, reinstalled and used the guest account, but it still does not work, the Public profiles list is empty.
