I don't know what I was doing wrong but I got about 50 errors that said not a valid integer...I think I tried this program before and got the same error..I have a crystalfontz 16x2 (632) serial LCD...so I don't know if it won't work right with that or what..

I would really like this program if it worked right..but it keeps on messing up. I am not getting anymore error messages..but the second line is showing up on the first line of the display..and nothign is showing up on the second line on the display..I hope that made since. So on my display there is nothing on the second line..what should be there is up above it on the first line. I have a 2 x 16 Crystalfontz LCD.

i think you have a version 1?

i have a version 2 2x16, and that works perfect!

i am still fixing bugs everybody sending me, and that one is on the list.. ;)

No..I have a version two..I just got it about 3 weeks ago..and all the other programs work fine with it..don't know..maybe I am doing something wrong.

correct com port?
correct speed?
and (what i think it is) set the LCD size to 2x16 and not to 4x40 (standard)

I did that..I have it set to crystal fontz, 2 x 16, and correct com port and speed and all. I see very light words flashing on the second line..and there are like little diaganol lines flashing everywhere..also there is a block at the very front part of the first line and there is also one on the second line that just flashes.

can you try to reset the LCD?

is this ripped off lcdcenter ??

it looks 100% like lcdcenter.....

i cannot get it to work anyway :(
"input buffer full" and access violations.
 

BasieP

New member
no it's not a rip-off
just check older versions.

i only thought that the setup of LCD center is very nice, so i copied it ;)

and about that error: make sure you have set the comm speed high anough. You could also set the scroll delay a little higher.

if that doesn't help, buy yourself a QUICK LCD (read: MO)

I tried rebooting it and then testing it again..but it still did the same thing. Wouldn't show anyting on the second line, would only show stuff on the first line.

Well I know that it is not a 1.0..for one thing when I reset the boot screen on the LCD and had it show the original boot screen it says version 2.0.

I have a v1.0 16x2 636 cf that works just fine....it tweaks a lil bit here and there...my MO 20x2 works like a champ, my MO 20x4 works like a champ, and even the 122x32 GLK12232-25-WBL graphical MO LCD kicks even more ass...BasieP...you know what I think about the smartie...thx for the hookups for my upcoming project by the way....and keep on kickin' ass with this

thanx sn1per, i will sure do!

and to you rockandchelle:

i don't know what you set wrong, but it works here perfect. It also does with sn1per on a 1x16.

I know there are some problems with a 4x20 version 1, but it you are sure it isn't a V1 then it must be something else..

New member
Yeah..I am sure it is a version two..so i don't know what is wrong. I hav tried everything..do you think it could be something that I already had installed is interfering with it. I currently use LCD stats and the Winamp PLugin from LCDDriver, and another program that I am beta testing. And my display works great on all of those..so I' dont' know what is going on.
