Bug or Feature?
« on: January 12, 2011, 04:23:25 AM »

since i have installed the pokeys-plugin, mach3 can only work with controller plugged in. when my controller is plugged off, the reset button don't work and i can't use mach.
I have no E-Stop buttons or so.
Bug or feature?

     Andrew of "Mach Motion", wanted Mach3 to "Estop" if the PoKeys became unplugged, since they use it for both HMI and Pendant....
it was added as a safety feature. If you want to disable that, and run mach without the PK plugged in, then Disable the plugin.

as to your other questions, unknown, dont see that here.

thanks for replay. yes, disabling the plugin is a solution but it would be nicer if you can choose your way...

the other problem was solved by reinstalling mach, however.
