Hey @erv ! I'm looking at the CFX Manual reading about the capabilities of the Accent LED Pads.
On Page 72 it says...
"Accent LEDs role
The new accent sequencer gives more flexibility on the use of each accent. Here are the various
attributes each accent can have. To be noted that pulsing type of accents (self-pulsing, crystal
pulsing, blade mirror, audio flicker limited to accents #2-5-6-7-8 since not all the HW pins can have
PWM. You can still define non-PWM pins to those function but they will only blink like a digital
ping when passing half of the PWM range (512)."
...which suggests to me that Accent Pads 2, 5, 6, 7, and 8 are PWM capable.
But then on Page 75 it says...
"Special Accent LEDs #2 and #5 to #8
Not all accent LEDs can have extended roles such as blade mirroring or crystal pulsing: only accents
#2 and #5 to #8 can use the roles involving PWM mirroring, pulsing or audio flicker. Setting another
LED with that role can still partially work but the LED will be only turned on and off instead of
behaving with continuous dimming."
...which suggest to me that Accent Pads 6, and 7 are NOT PWM capable.
I was hoping that the CFX would be able to handle my Cool Down Emitter
Idea from 2017.Crystal Focus Saber Core v8 "COOL DOWN EMITTER" ACCENT LEDS IDEA
I've been trying to learn C++ in order to create the coding necessary for implementing my C.D.E.I. aka 'The Firean Effect' on either the CFX or the Proffieboard.
Both boards have their positives and negatives. The positive to the Proffieboard v1.5 and v2.2 is that the code is Opensource. The negative is that I need to learn the code, HA! But moreso, that I can't have both an illumitated Crystal Chamber AND Bluetooth. And I don't think I can have a Motor in it either.
The positives to the CFX is that I can have Bluetooth, and a Motor, and an Illuminated Crystal Chamber, and MAYBE a Cool Down Emitter capable of The Firean Effect. The negatives are that the code isn't Opensource, and even if it was... I still have to learn the code, HA!
Though I've started to understand the "longhand" coding in C++, the "shorthand"(nesting?, and abbreviations, i.e. ++, --, %*/, etc.) of the code in C++ and the use of styles and templates, etc., which is used predominantly in the ProffieOS is still wildly confusing to me.
Anywho, if you would please clarify for me which Accent LED Pads are PWM capable, if the pads are still grouped 1-4, and 5-8, or if they're all separately addressable now, I'd appreciate it.
For a Tri-Cree, would it be possible to piggyback Crystal Chamber LEDs (0804's, or a 3mm/5mm RGB) off of the main LED pads?
