Galil 4080 won't connect / no contour mode?
« on: October 26, 2020, 12:44:05 PM »
Hello -

Long time mach3/galil user, trying to set up a new machine with mach4 - using a galil 4080 and win10.  Initial success but realized that I couldn't reverse an axis direction with the check box in the mach motors tab, found this thread (https://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php?topic=42307.msg275430#msg275430) and downloaded updated plugin (version 255 updated from 252) but now, it won't connect to galil at all.  Controller is still listed but no communication at all, if I remove controller from the list (back to the left-hand list) it disappears completely and no controllers are found.  Revert to old plugin version makes it come right back and work fine.  Running GDK-696 downloaded from Galil, which also works fine. 

Also, second issue, when it was working (older plugin version), mach would not move the machine under contour mode, only under linear interp.  Galil debug file under LI shows numerous LI commands being issued and motion works fine, switch to contour mode and debug file shows no motion commands, no commands after initial configuration. 

Thanks for any help!
