Re: Raspberry Pi support - enables a hard-wired, dedicated dash

Update on the CAN channels: The direct mapping without the LUA scripting works great now :)

Fast response, good for a shift light on the RaspPI.

Things seem to be working as they should be now...

Thanks for the help!

Re: Raspberry Pi support - enables a hard-wired, dedicated dash

Regarding #2: I had this as 800x600, and the touchscreen touch points were not aligned with the images, so much so that there was no way to hit the "OK" button in the lower right of the screen. The only way I could fix it was to change the resolution in the config file to 640x480; then tou...

Re: Link G4+

I am still using the Lua Script, but since things are so slow I am migrating over to the preset item, but with remapped offsets.

I will let you know if it's any better.

Re: Raspberry Pi support - enables a hard-wired, dedicated dash

I must be the first one to use the default Raspberry Pi display with RCP, based upon this experience. Here are a couple of IMPORTANT THINGS to know if you decide to do this: 1) Do NOT RUN RCP IN FULLSCREEN MODE. This will cause the program to crash. I still have not figured out where the setting for...

Re: Raspberry Pi support - enables a hard-wired, dedicated dash

I just did a complete reinstall and everything came up fine. I configured RCP to boot into the dashboard, didn't download any new tracks, and pulled up my dash board and configuration. Everything was working fine, so I closed RCP and did a graceful shutdown of the system. Today I came back to it, an...

Re: Raspberry Pi support - enables a hard-wired, dedicated dash

Hi all. Just got the RPI display with a RPI4 unit and have been setting it up using the Wiki instructions. Everything seemed to be going well until I tried to download a bunch of tracks to the unit. The Racecapture app locked up and now no longer works. I am getting the error: line 49: exitstatus: c...

Re: Link G4+

As a "final" footnote to this issue, I finally had some quality time with the car this weekend, and we got everything working properly. 1) CAN bus mapping: We just used the LUA script as above, with the offsets listed. The flashing numbers were solved by changing the data rate in the scrip...

Re: Link G4+

Nice to see someone getting to things on the forum, even if it's a "bit" late. I tried that initially, and got nothing going through. The Link G4 we have is not that version - it's the one dedicated to the E36. The offsets I believe are different, and the only way we get anything on the di...

Re: Link G4+

This link has been HUGELY helpful for us setting up an E36 with the Link G4+ and a RCPro mk3. We made a custom cable, and with the Link and Lua settings above, have been able to get them to talk to each other. However, when looking at our dash or raw data, the CAN bus data is showing for an instant,...
