signal manuel mode and CS2

Postby seveny » 12.01.2011, 20:08

hi there,

now that my signals work (hint was activate the checkbox for turnout because i am using k83-decoder thanks!) i discovered the manuel mode of signals.

very nice feature!

unfortunately it seems only to work within the rocrail software, because when i change light via CS2 touchscreen to green directly rocrail does "not see" this and the signal stays e.g. red.

is there no transmission of this information to rocrail (yet)?
what can i do to make it work or help?

Hi Sven,

At the command station driver level in Rocrail only accessory decoders are handled, the actual signal processing is done at a higher level. This means that changing a signal on the CS2 can not be reflected in Rocrail.

Hi Ron,

I remember a change in rocrail, since a while the speed-info is now transmitted from cs2 into rocrail.

I thought that the signal-change-info could also be transmitted like that?

But I am not sure, if turnout are transmitted when change via CS2 touch.

Hi Sven,

Two-way information exchange is done for loco speed/direction, loco functions and turnouts.

Hi Ron,

so there is a difference between "turnout thru K83" and "signal thru K83" in rocrail?

i activated "turnout" (had to!) in the rocrail signal config - but this does not make it work?

Hi,

the cs2 does not report a signal event as far as we are informed about the protocol.

Hi Rob,

okay. What can I do to find out, if it is maybe transmitted?

How can I listen between my cs2 and rocrail? If no locos are running and only the signal is switched manually, would there be somethine like a trace helfpful?

I am eager to help :-)

Hi,

just activate byte trace level, start Rocrail and operate a signal on the cs2, and post the trace in this thread.
Best Regards, Rob.

Hi Rob,

I started rocrail with
Code: Select all
/opt/rocrail/rocrail -console -l /opt/rocrail -byte


then switched the signal on the CS2 with MM-address 7 from red to green and back to red. Then stopped with "q" and got the attached tracefile.

Hi Sven,

I think we should open a tracker issue for this.
Will you open one for this and attach your trace?

[EDIT]
I totally overlooked it... That the trouble with Forums.
That is why it is better to open a wishlist issue at LP.
If you have trouble to open one, I will do it 4u.
Best Regards, Rob.
