Flashed w/ latest firmware; solid red light

Postby heckler82 » Fri Aug 10, 2018 4:34

Hey all, I just recently flashed my Gunfighter Mk II MCG Pro to 1.94B. Ever since then the stick light on the black box is solid red as seen here: Image

The stick appears to be functioning normally. Is this something new or is it supposed to be solid green? Using VKB Dev C v0.87.90 (NJoy32 firmware v1.94.9) and Z-Bootloader for NJoy32 platform v1.15

All controller parameters are adjustable including LEDs. You can easily replace red color to green if you want)). Here https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ojzm-lJM4BlPHnGRqSdAdqRsSr2yOsIo you can find user guide. Section 2.5 describes indication settings. Do not forget to edit zconfig.ini file (saved in the same folder with VKBdevcfg.exe). Add User=Developer string to [User] section to enable those settings.

I have the same issue, just opened a trouble ticket. I thought the lights on the Black Box were to indicate whether or not everything is working properly, not to be customizable.

Don't know how new you are to these sticks but make sure you followed this guide when flashing. Every step is important.

I'm familiar with the process, and have tried it a couple of times, with the newest firmware, and with the previous one (currently with the newest firmware). I've also tried taking the grip/extension/base apart, and re-seating everything in between flashes to make sure that isn't the problem. The weird thing is, everything works fine. Just the red bus and stick lights.
