Can I still use my old Profile/Config that I saved before I Flashed new Firmware?

Postby Snacko » Sat Aug 04, 2018 19:15

I have flashed the new Firmware to my GF MkII MCG Pro.
Can I now load my old profile and Set it into the stick?

Is the calibration settings saved in a Profile/Config? So if I load an previous profile does it load an older calibration???

In most cases it should work fine. I recall having to recreate a profile once going from one firmware to another but then I've probably tried each of the betas as I've found them. The last several I've been able to simply apply my current profile no problem.

As for calibration you MUST calibrate after flashing. It's part of the process after defaulting the stick and before applying a profile. Just takes a sec.

But I see the calibration info saved in the Physical Axis tab. And when I load a proflie, that info get's changed. So it seems that it is saving the calibration.

But the instruction for Flashing Firmware says to recalibrate. So, loading old calibrations doesn't seem appropriate if the Firmware may have changed something that affects that.

First things first. You're gonna have to get your connectivity issue straightened out before you can get calibrated. As long as that's still going on, your calibration won't hold.

That and the calibration isn't tied to the profile as far as I know. Don't be averse to calibrating. It only takes a sec to do and once it's right you should be good to go. But things do get out of adjustment from time to time and need to be redone.
