You are right Walter, but how can I effectively test WP43S?Walter wrote: ↑Sun May 23, 2021 1:39 pmThank you all. But honestly, if we didn't have this thread we'd think hardly anybody is interested in the WP43S since nobody seems to use our SW and test it on PC or DM42 HW - at least we cannot detect any feedback or error reports. This may be a sign of infinite trust in us though I doubt it's a sign of good quality for a scientist or engineer - you shall not believe but check! Looking forward to your messages.
I don't have the possibility to run the emulator on WINDOWS because I only work on MAC OS.
the emulator on DM42 is fine but has problems with quick program changes (DM42-3.19.pgm <==> WP43S.pgm) because you have to reload the QSPI. It is then necessary to make full backups on both sides. If I had a second DM42, I would work well with WP43S.pmg.
the most interesting functions to test (in my opinion) are not yet fully available : programming functions, matrix processing functions, general graphical processing functions, integration functions, and especially ASN!
I find it preferable to work with the DM42 emulator from Jaymos which can be found here https://classic43.com/Classic43/Links_a ... loads.html because it is not necessary to change the QSPI for the exchange of programs (DM42-3.19.pgm <==>C43_???.pgm). The operation is simple and fast. Unfortunately the SNAP function (essential for the tester) assigned to a key is missing (we have to look for it in the functions catalog).
As for the layout, I propose a very simple solution. I print the layout of the C43 on plasticized paper (with my Canon Selphy 900) in 89*70 mm format. Two thin strips of double-sided adhesive paper make it fit directly on the keyboard of my DM42. The flexibility of the paper allows to press the keys without any problem.
Be sure that when the development is more advanced, there will be more remarks and feedbacks.
Best regards to all.
