meiralfasi how did you download the hex file?  did you right click and "save target as"?  what did you name the file?  could you send me the exact file you uploaded.  I can try uploading it to my board as a  test.

Probably, I think your mcu is fine.  You should be able to program it with no trouble.  My advice is to get an ispmkii hardware programmer so you don't have to deal with the boot loader.  There is more risk of doing bad things though.  With a boot loader you don't have to worry about screwing up the fuse settings which can brick your board.

I don't know for sure if it is a problem.  I don't have the "exact" axon hardware.  I tested the code on my hand soldered, homemade board, and simulated a button press with a short circuit of the axon's swich i/o pin.  What matters is that your board is functional because you were able to upload my hex file.  I already told Admin about the possible problem with the servo centering program, so he can test it if he wants.

Now go make robots! ;D

Just because you couldn't get the test programs to work doesn't mean everything is screwed up!  Like Admin said he's had huge sales of the Axon and there hasn't been too many problems.  The fact is your board is functional.  Your going to find with any microcontroller product that at some point you will be scratching your head wondering what the #$*& is going on.  Robotics is like that.  Its so easy to mess something up completely trivial, and end up stumped for hours or days.  This is why Admin has made so many tutorials and FAQs to lower the learning curve.

To administrator . Instead of blaming me for doing something wrong why don't you backup your product , admit that there was something wrong with your

programing  and correct the problem.

You are under the incorrect assumption that because you and I could not get the centering program to work, that there must be a problem.  As I said before I do not have an Axon, and therefore any test I preform on my board does not mean it won't work on the axon.  Admin said he will look into the problem already.

You have to give him time to look into the problem.  He isn't even online right now.

@ merialfast:

have you tried to write your own program (something simple to just turn an LED on)?
what environment and method are you using to program your axon?
could you post the output from when you try to program the axon (like whatever errors it gives)?

@everyone else:
could it be a makefile issue?
if the makefile is configured incorrectly (even the folder setup) it could cause programming errors

it might not even be uploading properly, it sounds like that could be the issue here
use the google.  it's your friend.

@ wil.hamilton
merialfast hasn't been uploading programs he's made, just hex files he downloaded.  There are no makefiles involved because nothing is being compiled.

This my point .                          

http://www.societyofrobots.com/axon/axon_FAQ.shtml

   Axon FAQ

I am a very weak programmer, is that a problem?
No, it is not! All the complicated programming has already been done for you. Almost any feature can be used by calling simple one-line functions, of which is listed in the Axon function list.


I have a little knowledge in programing  I wanted to use first the pre made programs and then I got into problem with The programs.

If you wrote instruction and programs in your website to be followed we expect those programs to work.

Ok I tested it and it turns out it was a bad file. Not sure when I broke it . . .

Anyway, I fixed it and uploaded it.

No need to admin-bash, if my product has flaws, I lose sales! :P

Supreme Robot .

My apology, That was not my intention.

by far this is the best product out there , i guess this is part of the hobby , after all this is an open source format.

My advice to you is this , turn your knowledge off for 30 minuets pretend that you are newbie and go step by step the why you instructed in
axon website and see the results, try to compile a program build it and uploaded to Axon MCU.
 
                                                                                        ::)
Do not forget to program the emotion chip if A= ;D then B=$ .

Number five alive Stephanie.

And post the results.

Your prompt response is greatly appreciated .
