I just tried it again and it gave me the same error.

I will try on a completely different machine.


That is very strange. I just tried it on a different machine and it worked fine.
Same exact steps. Weird


It's modular _0.4 NOT modular_4.0

In any version control system, there is usually the concept of "branches" (think of a tree), where development is isolated from the "trunk". branches have names, I'm currently working on hte modular_0.4 branch, and will shortly be merging that back to the master (trunk), and splitting off to a new branch mainly that I've accomplished my goals for the modular_0.4 branch.


What were your goals for the modular_4.0 or the modular_3.0 code branches? Just curious to see what might have changed.


It was done to support more than just megasquirt devices, and to cleanup the codebase somewhat. IMHO the leaders of the MS community seem to act as if they would prefer if people just used tunerstudio, so I decided to support more than just MS stuff, as I felt my efforts were largely ignored and unwanted by some of the powers that be. (my posts and forum on msefi was erased by the forum managers if that gives you any idea). I also wanted to attract more users and more feedback, and by adding support for other devices, that helps.

Currently in modular_0.4 I support all current MS-1, MS-2, MS2-Extra firmware's, as well as support for the JimStim 2.x stims (need the FTDI USB-TTL RS-232 cable), PIS 1.0 (performance injection system, a hacked firmware for GM ALDL CPU's, though the author of it seems to be too busy to post much about it) And preliminary support for some additional devices including a very interesting clean-slate in-development FOSS software/hardware design, and a FOSS russian ignition only control unit. I also hope to add support for ELM-32x devices eventually, more so as a logger/dash setup, since info on how to CHANGE stuff via OBD-II only appears to be available by only an extremely expensive/un-affordable licensing, and there may be legal issues with that, that I'm not yet aware of.

I just received a MS3/MS3x donation yesterday from an extremely generous user, so support for that will be coming soon. I also have an IO-X from Jean that I need to add support for. (current development needs to finish up before i can do his and MS-3 however).

As part of this effort, a huge focus was done on debugging the codebase, which mean many many many hours with valgrind, teasing out subtle coding bugs, which has helped immensely.

Wow, that is pretty low and despicable to erase the Megatunix forum. I did not know that happened.

What cars use this PIS stuff for the GM ALDL ECU? I just bought a 1990 Lotus Esprit and I believe it has ALDL cables that are used to communicate with a GM based ECU that Lotus sourced when they were owned by GM.

I'm not entirely sure, I think is was late 80's to early 90's. The author of it hacked mtx to work with it and setup glade files and gui config's to suit it, I don't have any of his hardware so I could never verify how good/functional it was. I incorporated his changes, and then he pretty much disappeared for 6 months. I heard he was back , but haven't heard much else. I'd suggest googling for it. I think he's an OZ'lander.

How's the MS3 additions going? I wanna try this program out! Maybe it'll be better on my tuning laptop, which seems to fail epically at running TunerStudio under Ubuntu. :lol:

MS3 is going slowly as I've have other more pressing work to attend to. It'll get there eventually.

I've used MegaTunix & TunerStudio with MS2Extra3.1 on OSX 10.6 & Linux Mint 10. If anything TunerStudio is slightly faster on Linux Mint 10 than the Apple OS 10.6, and MegaTunix offers a different point of view, and which ever tuning software I use with my cased MicroSquirts neither is any the wiser. There have been flaky times with both, but I am not using a majority platform, so you learn to become tolerant of any foibles.

I think we should consider ourselves lucky to have a choice, so thanks to both parties for all their good work.

Where's his code and INI's? If I have those I can easily support it as I already have support for MS2-E 3.1.

I have committed to Git support for Baldur's 3.1.1+ALS firmware. You should be able to do the usual steps
Code: Select all
git pull
./autogen.sh  ; make ; sudo make install ; sudo ldconfig

and run it and it should detect his firmware and load that Antilag tab.

Just beware this is still a pre-release edition (git/development), so it may have quirks , but please report back any issues in a NEW thread.

The windows edition is still somewhat flakey ,so I'm still working on ironing out the bugs. Windows is an absolutely awful environment to debug on which makes the process very slow going./

Not right now, When this dev version is released, there should be. For now you can build and install a development version from source.
