Apart from committing to EPROM, did you uodate prior (CTRL+U)?
I've tried it both ways, updating and not updating. Makes no difference as far as I can tell.

Re: [Done] CommonSense controller - better capsense!

So, "setup" being yellow, controller outputs keypresses via debug channel. That's normal. To get it to send data as keyboard, you either click "setup" so it's grey, or exit FC. The spam means your readings are unstable. Go to hardware settings, reset charge/discharge to what's recommended. If it's ...

Re: [Done] CommonSense controller - better capsense!

Computer is not a part of the problem, that's one thing I can guarantee (FC is much fussier than HID driver, if it works - the USB device part definitely works). Delete the CommonSense directory, download from github, change config.h and pins to match your physical layout, recompile, reflash. Okay ...

Re: [Done] CommonSense controller - better capsense!

Okay I'm gonna start fresh on a different computer. It's the only thing I can think to try, other than trying a new Cypress. Btw I've quadruple checked the pins, and I'm using the source from since you most recently updated the pins. I'll try from scratch anyway though, can't think of anything else ...

Re: [Done] CommonSense controller - better capsense!

Ah. go to globals.h and change NOT_A_KEYBOARD back to zero. Well, I was certain that would do it, but unfortunately no dice. For reference, I rebuilt both the bootloader and the 8x24 project in PSoC after I made this change, then reflashed the Cypress. Didn't make any difference, setup mode still o...

Re: [Done] CommonSense controller - better capsense!

As for "can't see keypresses" - check that you have layout correct and it has letters on _base_ layer. Setup mode gives you matrix coordinates. They are transformed by layout to actual USB scancodes. Right, and I can only get Flight Controller to see keypresses as matrix coordinates, not characters...

Re: [Done] CommonSense controller - better capsense!

Couple other notes. Rebooting the host is NOT needed. Closing FC is the most drastic action you will ever need to take. "Upload" uploads your changes to the firmware, BUT NOT TO EEPROM (must I say that's in readme?). "Commit" writes to EEPROM. "Revert" reboots the controller - same thing as pulling...

Re: [Done] CommonSense controller - better capsense!

I bet you previously have it written to the eprom, I always did a upload (Ctrl+U) before I wrote it to the EPROM, but that probably doesn't matter. What happens, if you click on the yellow "Setup" at the bottom of the main FC window? After that, keys shouldn't register in the application anymore bu...

yes, should be safe to remove that, and recompile.

Okay update. Counting from Col 0, wired (the dead columns) Col8, Col9, and Col10 to pins 15.[2,3,4] respectively and removed C41,C42, and R5 from the cypress. This has fixed the dead columns issue.

Re: CommonSense quick-start / noob's guide

In keymonitor, the values are obtained automatically. You do not need to press anything. Just click reset, choose "Max", let the values stabilize for a few seconds and then click "Set Thresholds". Go to Thresholds, for beamsprings, reduce the values by say 25%. So 4 becomes 3 and so on. Click Apply...
