Have a spark 2 i recently installed. board works great until i try to run it through the config editor. i have the board set up for one switch with motion, however, this feature does not work on my saber. im stuck on font 1. whenever i use the config editor to change anything, it automatically creates a new file, named "motion" with the gXThresh, gYZThresh, SwngThresh, ClshThresh and SlshThresh in it. it also removes all of these thresholds from the master config. at this point the board runs glitchy, causing static, glitching of all noises, and eventually board locks up. motion font switching still doesnt work. i always have to reinstall the thresholds onto the master config. for the saber to operate correctly. any ideas?
This sounds like you have a config editor/firmware version mismatch. I bet you have downloaded the new config editor from my site, but have the older firmware. While in general there is supposed to be backwards compatibility, in this case there isn't as I do unfortunately over-ride the files. With Spark 2 you cannot get the newer firmware either, so your best bet is probably for me to send you a link to the older config editor. I'll check if it is currently online and if not will upload it and send you a link, but tomorrow as it's getting late here.
i did download it from the site. that would be awesome if you could help me get the correct config.editor. i didnt want to bother you too much, as i was able to work all the bugs out except this one. this one has me pulling my hair out
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
