help on which software to use on my 632


New member

My 632 arrived, and its sitting proudly in my ATCS 201 case :)
(superb turnaround Crystalfontz)

I have played with Wintest and have discovered I'm on COM2 at 19200 baud so all seems well.

I have tried running LCDCenter 2.0 but (even though on the config I set it to "lcd driver, COM2, rows 2, coll 16 , and COM speed of 19200)

even so, any output this program gives me is just weird scrolly asci symbols?

As far as I can tell I have done nothing wrong, can any other serial lcder out there give me any advice, or any other programs to try please.

I have an AMD Athlon 1.4 running W2K

Any help at all would be very welcome

Actually, on reflection

after reading the pdf it would seem that i'm actually on the (default) of 9600
I don't understand why nothing but WinTest, and the winamp plugin (by Henrik) works :( and that doesn't scroll so long song names fall of the edge.

LCD driver lights up the display, but that's all

lcd center sends weird stuff, no matter how I configure it (that's when it actually works) in W2K I get it doing an awful lot of "not responding"

UIC would be great, except that the Author doesn't support 16 x 2 displays, and has no intention of doing so :(

I really don't know what else to try now, does anyone have any ideas?
