thanks for this. I was loosing hair because of that A0 at the end of part 2.. I now have mach4 moving correctly. Still need to figure out sharing of switches as I have X-- and X++ sharing a pin as well as Y and Z. Then there's the spindle. I have it starting up, but there is something definitely wrong. It's surging higher and higher in speed.

try set the speeds x2 of what they are meant to be with Darwin to get 10000 rpm I had to have set to 100000 to get 10000 rpm also remove M3, M4, M5 for some reason they can muck up the spindle control.
