still not sure, but maybe you are looking for something like this

IF GetOEMLed(806) then
End If

one Thing what could help would be,

-open your toolchange macro with VBScript Editor
-use the File -> save As and select by filetype -> compiled  code (*.mcc)
-then backup your original M1S file and delete it from macro Folder so that only the mcc Version is left

i did this with my M3 M4 M5 macros when i had this scripper Compiler error, and it never showed up again

the only Thing you Need is a valid Mach1Lic.dat file in your Mach3 Folder.

output6 -> OEMLed(79)

pls create a new 'New Topic' in 'General Mach Discussion' section,
and post your G-Code.

if you just have a look where this New Forum Thread is placed:

Mach4 General Discussion -> New Forum!

you can think about, where the road is going too.

--> keep this Mach3 users out!

i am realy sad that all this mach3 knowledge will got lost, because a Forum without working search
function is just ridiculous.

Lag on CSMIO/Mach3 inputs doesn't allow me to stop the ATC on the cam signal (genevasensor).

made a Suggestion in the other thread

The max current from the cam sensor doesn't allow to drive typical relay directly, so can't use your idea from another thread

cam sensor -> optocoupler -> relay

So, I made a workaround, I'm switching the motor off after 160ms (CW) and 150ms (CCW) after the right tool has been detected.
After that only checking the cam signal.

you sayed it, it is a Workaround but not a solution. see cam sensor -> optocoupler -> relay -> there is allways a solution

This works for 99% of the time, I've added retry if that's not the case, but if something goes really wrong it will end up in an infinite loop.
I'll come back to the ATC later.

Workaround -> solution Problem again


your screenshot (machine) says everything what is wrong.

you are not trying to get the z-axis down, you are traying to do a probe
with radius comp (G41/G42) on.

G41/G42 + Mach3 is a no go (bugs) IMHO
