    PE 6.1.0.0 Auto Backup not working

    I've tried posting this question on the main active PICAXE section of the forum but, regrettably, I'm not getting very far towards a solution to the fact that the AutoBackup doesn't work between one PE session and the next; not for me (or another user it seems). I'm running the latest Windows...

    Editor Options Backup

    Due to a stupid action by myself I overwrote a final & fully working program and had to revert to something a few days old which was nowhere near complete and bug free. In a previous session I had set the Editor Options, Backup to make backups every 10 minutes - this is set as my default...

    I2C inter-PICAXE smulation ?

    I may be hoping for the impossible here, but is there any means of testing under PE6 simulation inter-program I2C comms? I've written a couple of programs that interact with each other via the I2C comms and it would make life a whole lot easier if there is some method of simulating how one...

    Strange SETINT behaviour

    I'm wanting to have the option of changing the mask for a SETINT command depending on a test of variables but I keep getting a syntax error. I'm using a 28X2 on the AXE201. PE 6.1.0.0, compiler v.3.4. In the main body of the code I use: main: setint OR %00000011, %00000011 to independently...

    Greyed out Syntax Check on minimized ribbon - Win10

    Is it me (or this laptop) or has the latest Windows 10 updates scuppered the Syntax Check button (next to Run) with the Ribbon minimized (now greyed out), also greyed out on the Home tab (full ribbon). Yet with the full ribbon, the Syntax Check is there, not greyed out and works ok on the...

    How long does a command take to process?

    Is there any form of definitive table (or even thoughts) as to how long a processor takes - at normal speed ("setfreq m4") - or with a higher (i.e. "setfreq m16") speed to process a command (any command)? And is the length of time-per-command processor type dependant (i.e. 18M2 vs 40X2)? I have...

    PE 5.3.6 Download ?

    I'm in the process of playing around with R/C hobby servos and am experiencing servo jittering. This it seems, from various threads, that it is a common problem. One thread I happened across indicated by IronJungle (back in 2011) that one program worked fine with PE 5.3.6, no jitter, but had...

    inputype clarification please - TTL or ST?

    As still a bit of a newbie to using PICAXE, I have been trying to make head or sense of the determination as to what pins are TTL and which are ST and which can be changed and which cannot. The latter part of the query, re changeable pin types, I understand would relate only to the M2 versions...

    PICAXE EDITOR Not Responding

    I recently upgraded to the latest version of the PICAXE Editor and I now find that, when starting the program, I get the splash screen and the last listing(s) opened in the main window and nothing much else on screen (the splash screen remains) for about 2-3 minutes - no menus or workspace area...

    WRITE Command on 18M2+ - ??

    Hi all, Forgive me but I'm a bit of a newbie to this (a bit of a numpty as well with this command). I've read through the manuals and can find no real definitive answer relative to the 18M2+ specific chip. In some of the chips I see that the NVM/EEPROM locations are shared with the program...

    18M2 Current rating ?

    Hi. As a newcomer to the world of PICAXE I'm a little baffled as to what is the total current capacity of the 18M2? I note from the Manual Pt.1 that each pin is capable of 25mA with a maximum current per chip of 90mA. Somehow that doesn't appear to be the full story. I've had a look at the...
