Use a modern device that's cheaper and well supported.
The G100 never worked 100% properly with Mach3, and was abandoned many years ago.

I have this device since new, and only until now i decided to use, paid for it $300, and hate to throw it , feel like chucking money
i think also that Mariss got taken for a ride on this one, on the software side, if we look at this controller its features are on par with the so called new devices
dont get me wrong I spend my working days operating very sophisticated CNC machines like the twin spindle Mori-Seiki nl2500 with live tooling....
maybe one day someone with time and brains will write a plugin that will make the g100 work.
