    C1E_02004 is published.

    Enhancements in zLM (zero Learning MECHA)
    Added [x] Use "zLM" if available .. in /config (enabled by default)
    The zLM preset received via zLM is visible in presets list as -zLM-
    That could be starting point for other presets, it can be loaded and used and/or changed and saved with other name.
    Deleting the -zLM- from presets list will forget that preset until is received again (if use zLM is ticked)
    The server send no zLM preset unless explicitly asked via other ways, forum, chat, so on..
    More details about the ways for requests later.
    Without such request made, the zLM is not enabled by server so zLM is safe to be let ON or OFF in /config

    Introducing zLM SSID seeking code
    This can be used for both zLM or for connection to Wi-Fi using MECHA buttons.
    If a power code made of 8 digits is entered, like
    01231231<
    MECHA will search for "zLM" SSID (case sensitive) and, if found, will connect to it, using 01231231 as password
    that password can be changed, say, 03213213
    it is need to match with the password set in SSID set-up
    This can be used in order to enable an hot-spot on a phone/tablet/pc with Internet and connect MECHA to it.
    The same restrictions apply as for other power codes - the codes should have different number one from the next one, and only one "0" at beginning.

          In [S1], [S2] and [S3], i.e. when [Load] [Save].. buttons are not visible,
          selecting a preset from list will load the preset in UI.
          In [A1], [A2] and [A3], like before, the selected preset from list can be loaded, renamed so on..
          using the corresponding buttons.

                Addressed an issue regarding simple pulse protocol (SPP) on AUX port and both E:0 and Shutter confirmation which can lead in SPP not working in certain situations.

                This was not affecting the regular/current use of MECHA, only with the upcoming SPP accessories on AUX port.

                  This is the base FW used as reference by MECHA Dual Axis Combo (DAC) User Guide which will be published very soon.
                  Highly recommended update if use DAC.


                  Enhancements in zLM (zero Learning MECHA) for Dual Axis Combo (DAC)
                  If the same power code made of 8 digits is entered on two MECHAs, like
                  01231231>
                  Those two MECHA units will become automatically connected in a Dual Axis Combo.
                  The steps are:
                  1) Download a file with the presets you want to use from https://forum.nodalninja.com/forum/p...sets#post30931 , on a Phone or PC.
                  2) Power up both MECHAs and wait until -=-=-=-= ends.
                  3) Choose the code, it needs to start with 0 and have 8 digits, no two identical digits one next to another and has to end with an extra ">" e.g. 01231231>
                  4) Enter the code on first MECHA, the horizontal one, say it MECHA-H, using MECHA-H buttons [0] is [power]
                  5) When MECHA-H beeps like 5 times enter the same code on Vertical MECHA, say it MECHA-V using MECHA-V buttons.
                  6) Connect with Phone or PC to MECHA-H123 SSID, the SSID has first 3 digits after 0 in its name
                  7) The password for MECHA-H123 is the code without ">" i.e. 01231231
                  8) Browse to 192.168.8.1 and upload the file containing the presets you downloaded at (1)
                  9) Use the power codes from presets descriptions, to shoot a panorama.

                  Every time when the MECHAs will be started they will be connected as DAC.
                  On MECHA-H LED will look like "-" and on MECHA-V like "=" right after start.
                  If isn't so, power down and up both MECHA again, preferably power up the MECHA-H first
                  Once you get more familiar with MECHA, you can use it in advanced way,
                  via the UI, this is only given as a quick start, with very little to learn.
                  1. Mecha it possible.
                  2. Mecha it easy.
                  3. Mecha team up.

                  • C1E_02012 is published.

                    Addressed an issue regarding MECHA-V123 have MECHA-V SSID instead
                    and no SSID password when connected using the 8 digits code
                    Both MECHAs connected using have now the same SSID password if connected using the 8 digits code.

                    For for Dual Axis Combo (DAC) in Row and Turn UI,
                    a box [ H ] for horizontal or [ V ] for vertical is visible depending on which UI is used
                    With click/tap on [ H ] or [ V ] the U.I. will switch to the other MECHA in combo.
                    The switch take couple of seconds now but will be instant in future FW updates.
                    ATM, the UI of MECHA with [ H ] can be used for direct horizontal movements
                    and dual axis movements (via presets),
                    while UI with [ V ] can be used for vertical (up and down) movements.

                    2. Mecha it easy.
                    3. Mecha team up.

                    • C1E_02013 is published.

                      Added the possibility "P" to specify the angles for repeat relative to the initial position of the second (Vertical) MECHA
                      if the list starts with "P", works the same as "R" except with inverted direction.
                      e.g. "P-45,45,1:90,-90,0"
                      The "P" will be more suited if camera is mounted with the grip up on MECHA DAC (the most usual)
                      While the "R" convention, if using the camera mounted with the grip down on MECHA DAC
                      so it will match better the up-down sense used in various stitching programs.

                      • C1E_02014 is published.

                        Added [More from Server..]
                        and [More from MECHA User..] (disabled for now)
                        options in the Preset List in UI, visible only if MECHA is connected to Internet.
                        Selecting [More from Server..] will add to list the presets available on Server,
                        starting with "(s) " in name.
                        The presets can be loaded and used as usual, if found useful, is good to be saved to have a local copy for when MECHA has no Internet available.
                        If use MECHA DAC, the presets with DAC in name are specially set for DAC.
                        This is just introduced, for now only some test presets are available,
                        the collection will be extended in the future,
                        also the option for loading specific presets from particular MECHA users will be enabled in upcoming FW updates.

                            • It will be a major optimization of UI after I'll finish the MECHA DAC guide,
                              for now, this optimization should reduce the loading time by 6 seconds (acc. w. my measurements)

                              C1E_02017 is published

                              Optimized a bit the loading time of UI.

                              Added in /config , enabled by default.
                              [x] Enable "More from Server.." option for the Presets List when MECHA has connection to Internet
                              If you don't intend to download presets from server, you can disable that there.

                                If [Presets] -first entry - is selected in Presets Lists,
                                [Delete] will delete all presets after offering to export All Presets in a single file.

                                Added [Empty] which will empty the Presets List without deleting the presets,
                                might be useful before importing, downloading from server or when making variants from a single preset.
                                At UI re-load, all existing presets will be visible again.
