I use this app with 1 of my MOCs with this hub and noticed similar issues trying to calibrate a medium lineair motor (# 88008, not the basic PUp M-motor, but the 6x4 studs on top which afaik can be used as a servo, unlike the basic M-motor). Until now I thought it was in the motor not working with the software, but perhaps it's something with the hub, since you have the same issue with a L-motor. I could test it later with Technic hub like you, but what I did notice with the M-motor is that it can do angles perfectly when I set the motor as "steppermotor" instead of as a "servo motor" in the brickcontroller 2 app settings. Once I set it as a servo it would turn further to the right than the left for example (similar to your video). Maybe it's a little bug in imurvai's great software or there's another issue which he simply can't fix due to Lego's stuff? So far I settled on using the "steppermotor" setting.

Thanks for info. I should check this option - maybe this hub needs specific settings for the motors while the new one doesn't.

If it doesn't have a hardware selector to switch between iOS and Android, I don't know what button combinations to use. Its product page has a downloadable manual, maybe it shows there how to switch?

At what point I should try different modes  (combination of differenrt buttons on ipega 9156) as I can see the ipega 9156 in my bluetooth devices. BC2 can see my Buwizz and the sliders in BC2 respond to motor movements.

To test your controller's modes, you should use BC2's "Controller" screen, not "Device".

I have tried in Controller menu all sorts of combinations but nothing worked. I tried my friend's xbox controller and it did work with BC2.

The SPIKE hub, when running the MINDSTORMS firmware, can already be controlled from a gamepad.

Hi, will your app every support the spike prime?

Hi,

I don't have any spike prime device so I can't promise I'll add support for it.

Woo, thank you very much! It has been a hassle in the past to manually replicate my profiles for my devices, this'll save me a lot of work. :thumbup:

thank you! your app really saves the product "buwizz".. shame in my view that their overprices revenues do not benefit you..

Does this mean you will implement a servo function for PU outputs on a BW 3?

Well, it's hard to tell if I can properly implent it without having a physical unit. But you can still use the PF servo.

Oh, I didn't realize you didn't own one yourself. Hope you will get one and some day to get around to working on servo mode implementation on PU ports.

In any case, many thanks for the fantastic work you do with your app.

Okay, is there a way we can set up a crowd funding page or something so that we can support Imurvai with this, he gives the app away for free, so he should not have to purchase controllers so that he can test them, I'd love for support of circuit cubes as well as buwizz 3, and would definitely be willing to put something towards the costs of development, and I'm sure there would be others as well. This is the best app there is to control your MOCs as it's the only one that supports multiple controllers.

Yeah, the potential added functionality would definitely be worth the spread costs between users.

I do have to wonder whether it would be good business practice for either of those companies to provide him with their product for free in order to add it to the app. The small cost to them would seemingly be earned back easily through the added potential for the product.

Can you help me with this? I looked in /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/com.scn.BrickController2 and its subfolders, and couldn't find my profiles (which were created in a previous version of the app), or any files for that matter.

I'm running Android 8.0.0 on my phone, so the folder policies shouldn't be an issue.

Hi all,

Here to share my 42083 BuWizz 3+ BuWizz Buggy motor+ PU L motor video, and sure, controlled by BrickController2 App+PS4 gamepad!

 

 

How come the lights on the bw brick are blinking red-green?

May I ask if there is any update on the "use PU motors as servos with BC2 app" topic? That would indeed by the best solution around the whole PU/buwizz/gamepad scenario.. *dream* :-)

It means that the battery is low.
