Mike's cross-platform FreeEMS tuning application, written in C++ using QT. With Mike's natural coding talent and Fred's intimate requirement knowledge it went from concept to full tuning capability in just 8 weeks!

This goes for binary status flags too. IE, I don't want to see "synced" when there is no connection. Nor do I want to see "not synced". Rather than red or green, I want grey.

3) EMStudio is currently our only dash, as such, presenting the list of tunables EVERY time is not ideal. For many/default, OK, for me, no, I want gauges and numeric in a usable pattern right up front, because I already know the meta data and I don't want to tune it.

4) Thinking more, the "tunables" window is necessarily huge for the expert view, but there should really be a tree or list view that's compact and could co-exist with the gauges/numeric/flags.

^ These sort of usability things, along with any of Jeff's bugs, would be a huge help in the near future/right now.

Hi all

I m working on project base on Arduino
My goal is to read information from différent sensor like oil pressure température rpm etc
I would use emstune for graphical résult
Did You have a documentation about your input format so I can send them to my serial port

Emstudio has a plugin architecture so you can reuse one of the existing ones, or write your own to suit.

ok
I go work on this
but no documentation for dialog use between freeems firmware and emstudio.
I would use the same output and format for data than freeems

flat4power Check out the docs Fred sent to you related to the comms protocol, it'l give you a base idea how to implement it. If you wish to use the FreeEMS plugin for communications, there are certain message EMS Tune expects to receive responses to, I'll see if I can get a quick list of them together for you.
