Custom firmware problem

#1 Post by demonchok » 04 May 2018, 15:04

Hi

im trying to create a esp mega firmware with this modul
https://github.com/letscontrolit/ESPEas ... usW266.ino

what I've done so far:

downloaded the whole pack, and downloaded the _P046_VentusW266.ino and put it into
the /src folder

then I've used atom to build it like it says in this guide
https://www.letscontrolit.com/wiki/inde ... platformio

but when I upload it, the ventus dont show up, in the end of the guide there is something I dont get
I've added the screenshot, could that be the thing im missing ?

Sorry, old info. You need to move the plugin to the stable list found here:

You download the zip (green button on the main GitHub page) and just edit this file:
define_plugin_sets.h


In which you move the plugin name to the list where the rest of the stable plugins are found.

You shouldn't need to add anything except change that one file. P046 is already there in the src folder.

You need to cut that row and place it under NORMAL (as of now it's under the EXPERIMENTAL definition).

What did you compile, build normal?

You should really remove a lot of the other plugins to have enough memory left. You really don't need other plugins since that plugin is really specific to that weather station.

Can you make a list of things required for that weather station?
And also the ESP type + size of flash memory.
Is that a custom built setup, or is commercially available?

It's available on Conrad.com as a renkforce product. Only generic categories and the W266 plugin is needed I believe.

If you have a more descriptive text, I could add it as a pre-defined set to build.

I assume you're using an ESP8266 with 1M flash?
Or is it 4M?
I will now add this version to the PlatformIO setup, so you can make a build of newer versions.

Justme-nl is the writer of the online guide and I believe that he's the one who first created this plugin. I don't own a Ventus W266/RenkForce W205GU so I cannot fix this myself. Maybe someone else can? And I wouldn't say that "someone" is responsible for this, we're all in this together ;)

I’m not 100% but I think I did read in the plugin readme Tint and RHint are not “interfaced” to the plugin due to hardware reasons.

For the rain maybe read more of the project data, as I changed course I stopped my interest in the W266
Belgium and land of ESP ... counting :D
