How many color profiles per font?

Teensysaber doesn't really work like that. There is an unlimited number or presets, each preset specifies which fonts to use and what colors/effects to use.

Hello there,

I got a Teensy 3.2 and have a problem with the crossguard, it's probably something dumb for someone experienced lol.
1. As soon as I pull out the kill key the crossguards light up. Wiring triple checked. 2. Aux button doesn't seem to work. Appreciate any help.

Configuration looks fine as far as I can tell.
First question: Are you sure this configuration is actually what the saber is using?
(did you upload it? Did you modify lightsaber.ino to use this configuration?)

Second question: Can you post some pictures of the wiring? Ideally it should show where everything is going, but that can be difficult if it's in the hilt.

Yeah I did

So I am not sure why it is failing either...

Try downloading the latest proffieos version and add your config file to it.
Maybe your cat walked over the keyboard or something, and starting over will fix it?
If that doesn't help, zip up the whole lightsaber directory and send it to hubbe@hubbe.net (and then drop a note here so I can find it in my spam folder) and I'll take a look at it.

Hello everybody.

I am new here. First of all i want to thank everybody in advance! I am a novice to programming and Controlling things with Arduino/Teensy. But i've fallen deep into te rabbithole :)

I am a photographer and especially love to lightpaint. After years of of using generic ledcontrollers with a battery strapped to them as tools to lightpaint. I think it is time for something new! And offcourse; lightsabers are just AWESOME!

My build is a Teensy 3.6 + Propshield driving a ws2812 144p/m neopixel ledstrip. Still on USB power, going to order a good battery soon.
But everything is working like it's supposed to now. It took me a couple of tries but together with all the information here and of Profezzorn his website, i managed to get it to work pretty easy.

Everything is connected as it is supposed to be between the Teensy 3.6 and the prop shield. (the teens 3.6 has an onboard sd-slot, so the sd-breakoutboard is out of the equation.) It all pretty much speaks for itself,
Just don't forget to make a wire connection between the DAC0/PinA21 and the AUDIO-IN on the Propshield! 

With my first attempt i tried to use the 'prop_shield_fastled_v1_config.h' it compiled, uploaded, but on the serial-monitor i saw there was an 'SPI CONFLICT' After some  reading about the problem i came to the conclusion that is is because Pin11/13 on the propshield for Dotstar shares a Pin with the SD-slot. And i'm not certain if i can fix that.

So my 2nd attempt i tried the 'Graflex_v1_config' and after setting up the sd-card/sound-fonts correctly everything worked like a charm! (only using a single blade of 144 p/m Neopixels.. maybe later i will expand with the ledstar & Mosfets options.)
I only tweaked the Pins for the Power/AUX1/AUX2 buttons to Pin36/37/38 because since the Teensy3.6 is a bit longer why not use the extra space? + i wanted to connect a Teensyview display (sorry i can't post links but there is a good teensyview-hookup-guide online)
Somewhere on this forum i've read that somebody was going to try to use one of these.. But i think at the moment it is easier to connect a I2C display then a SPI variant (and the Teensyview unfortunately is SPI.)
Probably because of the same SPI conflict the Dotstar and SD-slot have i suppose :(

Is there anyway or anybody who made it work?

the breakout pins are connected like:

RST      15 (Std.)
D/C      21 (Alt.)
CS           10 (Std.)
SCLK   13 (Std.)
DATA   11 (Std.)

The same problem i have with my Bluetooth, the Adafruit bluefruit LE..(the same can't post a link but: /getting-started-with-the-nrf8001-bluefruit-le-breakout/introduction) So SPI aswell.. I wished i found the Teensysaber website and this forum before i ordered the part i have :(
Maybe it is possible to connect it to a different SPI bus on the Teensy3.6? It has extra right? I have sadly no idea where to start.

Last but not least question; Would it be possible to add a rotary encoder? For lightpainting i would love to have a quick way to change color-hue/brghtness/strobe/speed or something like that. it would be amazing if that is possible during a picture!

Again i am a novice and without the tons of information online i would never came this far! Thanks to everybody here for that aswel!
Coding for me is the biggest challenge.. i understand how to adjust some little things etc, but when it comes to really writing code i have a LOT to learn!

With kind regards,
Timski

Hmm, I think you should be able to work around the SPI conflicts, since you probably want to use SD card that's on the 3.6. If you do that, sound will be read from SDIO instaed of SPI, which means that SPI spi should be free for bluetooth, fastled, etc. Start by making sure that your sdEnablePin is set to -1.

So starting with adding a line with:

sdEnable = -1

to the V1_config.h?

So starting with adding a line with:

sdEnable = -1

to the V1_config.h?

Actually never mind. The variable is called sdCardSelectPin, but there is no need to set it to -1, because the code already
defaults to using the builtin SD card. That also means that you can ignore the SPI conflict message. It will print it, but it's wrong.

under tools I have selected:

Board: "proffieboard"
USB Type: "serial"
DOSFS: "SDCARD (SPI)"
CPU Speed: "Smallest Code"
Port (grayed out)
Programmer: "STM32 BOOTLOADER"

I'm trying to upload the lightsaber.ino to the proffieboard and I'm getting this error. Though it does say done uploading at the top.

Sketch uses 203112 bytes (82%) of program storage space. Maximum is 245760 bytes.

The solution is on this page: GitHub - profezzorn/arduino-proffieboard

If you're on windows, run Zadig to install a compatible STM32 BOOTLOADER driver.
If you're on linux, make sure to install the udev rules.

hey, I'm new to this whole proffieboard discussion, and my linux computer isn't recognizing the Proffieboard, so I can't upload anything to it. The link above on the GitHub site gave Linux instructions, but I was unable to figure out what they meant(it's been a few years since I touched a Linux OS.) Any chance someone could tell me in detail what to do?
