New 2.70 firmware
Posted by: heinrichsweikamp ()
Date: June 19, 2013 11:23AM

Hello,

Today, we released the 2.70 stable for the OSTC2 Series (2N/Mk.2/2C). This is not the proposed 3.00 stable but an intermediate release to have a compatible hex file for all hardware versions of the OSTC2 series.

Updating is very easy if you have 1.90 or later (e.g. all 2N users!) and using Windows.
1. Get new bootloader v2: [www.heinrichsweikamp.com]
2. Follow the step-by-step instructions: [www.heinrichsweikamp.com]


Hallo,

Heute haben wir die Version 2.70stable für die OSTC2 Serie (2N/Mk.2/2C) veröffentlicht. Das ist noch nicht die 3.00, die in Arbeit ist, sondern ein Zwischenrelease um für all Hardwarevarianten eine gemeinsame Firmware zu haben.

Das Updaten auf die neue Version ist sehr einfach, wenn bereits 1.90 oder später installiert ist (z.B. für alle OSTC 2N Benutzer) und Windows verwendet wird.

1. Neuen bootloader v2 herunterladen: [www.heinrichsweikamp.com]
2. Die einfache Schritt-für-Schritt Anleitung befolgen: [www.heinrichsweikamp.com]

Viele Grüße/Best Regards,
Matthias

Thanks for your efforts! Good job once again! thumbs up

Just one thing i don't like anymore: The "design" of the menupage title... I liked it more when it was black/white inverted than now it is just in the dive mask color (CF36)...

regards,
scubatinoo

Thanks for your effort!

I just installed the new firmware. Unfortunately, there is still the bug within the battery menu: Just after installation, I have gut a temperature Tmin=29,8°C (01.01.01) which should be ok, it is quite warm in my room and the date was not yet corrected. But Tmax is saved as 84.8°C (20.07.13) - so neither date nor temperature are realistic ;-(

By the way: I can't find it using the search function of the forum - How can I switch to the alternate GF- setting and is it possible to do so using the simulator? At least at the moment I can't find an option to do so...

First, enable CF69, then during diving (or simulation), press right-button until GF Values are displayed in the custom view. Then Menu -> ToggleGF.

I installed it and like tiefunten reported, the battery info is meaningless. I will wait and do cycles to see what happens, but currently my OSTC says "0 cycles" and fantastic temperatures even though I estimate maybe 10 lifetime cycles.

I also have the subjective feeling that the simulator is slower than before.

You know you can set the temperature value to a lower value using the OSTCTools.
Otherwise you have that maximum forever. ;-)

Thanks for the explanation. Unfortunately I already tried that and it didn't work in the simulator. That's why I was asking - maybe it only works in Divemode? But I can't see GF Values in the custom view area, only on the left side during ascent...

@Rob: Yes, I know how to change that but will not do so until this bug is fixed.

Hi tiefunten

You will find the "ToggleGF" option in divemode & simulator - just make sure that you switch the CustomView (bottom right) until the GF Values are shown! Then press left and enter and choose the ToggleGF Option... As long as you are on "Avr. Depth" or "Time" (or something else) the option ToggleGF will not appear!

Just an Information: My battery info is in a good shape... no strang things this time!

Recharge computer until it's full. The battery info will then be updated.

Hello @all,

first I want to say Thank you for the new Firmware! Many interesting new features.

I have a starnge behavior regarding the Default gases. All gases are now 21/0 with different change values.
I want to change this with the OSTC Tools but it will not work. The tool crashed and could not upload the new Default Gas settings.

I think the reason therefore is that some new CFIII functions are generatet in the Firmware and not in the OSTC Tool.

Is there another chance to configure the default gas settings?

Thank you

Hi Bobo

My Gas Setup is still the same like before the update... Why don't you use the Gas Setup inside your OSTC? It's not that comfortable but for sure it works ;-)

I will check that this evening!
If you are using the latest version of OSTCTools (0.8.2)
it has nothing to do with the number of CFs, OSTCTools can handle this.

I've just installed Linux on my laptop, does anyone know if there is a Linux version of bootloader? It's set up as dual boot so I can still use Windows but my aim is to migrate fully to Linux.

I can't display the GF in the Custom View area. Maybe that's why I can't switch to alternate GF!? The following views can be displayed: Stopwatch, Time, Average Depth, Saturation Graphics, EAD/END, Future TTS.
What am I doing wrong?

Check CF69 (Allow GF change).

I already checked that in the beginning, as "reivilos" wrote that! It was set to on.
But I played around a little and realized, that this setting was somehow "stucked": all other settings were switchable with the arrow pointing on the "Current" value, pressing the right button then. At CF 69, this was not possible (nothing changed when I was pressing the right button), but pressing the button when the arrow was pointing on the "default" value, the "current" value switched to "off". After that, it could be switched when the arrow was pointing on the current value (the same as with all other CF...)again and I can use the alternate GF-Option now ;-)

@Mathias: Thank you for the info on the battery-information. After a full charge, everything seems to be ok now!

I'm working with HW to add support for firmware updates to the libdivecomputer library. But that got postponed due to the introduction of the ostc3. I hope to resume the firmware updating work again very soon.

I am also a Linux only guy winking smiley. You can also install JDiveLog and use it to upgrade the firmware. That's the way I upgraded yesterday, it worked like a charm…

this has nothing to do with OSTCTools,
you can set the values to a realistic value.

After updating the firmware on my ostc, i had the same problem.

Maybe the new area for diluent gasses is not initialized with proper values and so you have to set some realistic values after the firmware update.

Edit: tested with the german firmware.
OSTCTools Version 0.8.2 (BETA8).

When I use the bootloader I receive an error;


Warning: piccodes.ini not found.

Connected to \\.\COM7 at 115200
Searching for PIC ..., unknown pic type: 57h
ERROR!

Not quite sure what to do now? I have V2.50 installed.


I have sorted it out. It was a user interface problem! confused smiley

Cool, I'll download that and give it a go. Is JDiveLog pretty easy to install on Linux? It's a whole new world to me moving away from simple click to install!! :-)

Aerobrain, you'll find support informations about installing JDiveLog on the JDiveLog-Website (http://jdivelog.org/how-to/linux/)

Which macdive and subsurface versions are you using? There are a few OSTC2 bugfixes in libdivecomputer related to the new bailout event, which are not yet included in the latest macdive and subsurface versions. So if you happen to have dives which contain the new bailout event, then parsing will fail. Should be fix in their next release, and I think I already saw some betas too.

If that's not the case, then please send me a memory dump from your ostc. You can do that by downloading the "universal" test tool from the libdivecomputer website, and run it with these arguments:

./universal -n "Heinrichs Weikamp OSTC" -v -l output.log -m output.bin <serialport>

Then send the generated files to me.

Replace <serialport> with the correct serial port (e.g. something like /dev/tty.xxx). On Mac you also need to mark the tool as executable with the command "chmod +x universal". You can find some more detailed explanation on the macdive forum.

Aus deiner Beschreibung entnehme ich das du einen Mac nutzt.
Würdest du mir bitte den binarie Export (wie TnT beschrieben hat) auch zumailen, so das ich die Profile mit der anzeigen in den OSTCTools ausprobieren kann?
Ich habe zwar noch keine Probleme feststellen können, aber bislang nur wenige TG zur Auswertung hier.

Schon mal Danke.

Ist kein Fehler der V 2.70
Das Profil wird im OSTC Tools einwandfrei angezeigt.
Danke an Robert Angermayr für die Telefonische Unterstützung thumbs up

Somit kommt die fehlerhafte Anzeige bei MacDive V 2.2.3 & Subsurface 3.0.2 von den Programmen selber.

Bis dann

Von Zeit zu Zeit, vor allem auf Anwenderwünsche hin, müssen wir an der Datenstruktur der Tauchgänge Änderungen vornehmen.

Das dauert dann immer etwas bis die PC-Programmierer nachgezogen haben. Dafür ist das Software-Milieu des OSTC mittlerweile umfangreicher als für jeden anderen Tauchcomputer auf dem Markt.

Matthias

If you send me the memory dump of your ostc, I can double check whether parsing works using the latest libdivecomputer version. If not, we may still be able to fix before the next subsurface and macdive version.
