Starters problem

Hi
I just installed CHDK via the Stick program.
That was working out fine and I have installed a working CHDK 1.4.1 version on a G15 camera.
When I try to load the KAP UAV; I am getting the following mistake
NO chdk version assuming CHDK 1.3

What am I doing wrong in the installation process?  First I was thinking that I hadn't installed the right version ..    but that is not the case.... can you give me some guidelines where to look?

It's not actually an error - just a warning. During one of the CHDK version updates, some changes were made in how a few scripting functions work.  The warning is there in case you are running an old script that could be affected by the changes.

So that raises a question - what version of the script are you using? Anything even vaguely recent has a statement in the header :
Code: [Select]
@chdk_version 1.3 that disables that message.  So you might want to update your script as well as CHDK.

The CHDK version is CHDK 1.4.1 downloaded via STICK.
THe KAP UAV version is exactly the one in your reply.

If I try to use the script:  I get the following message: 
:1: A/CHDK/scripts/.kap_uav.lua:1 unexpected symbol     TEMINATED

Can that help?

Is there actually a " . " in front of the kap_uav.lua part of the filename in the error message you posted? The message seems to suggest some kind of file format corruption.

Bert - given you are using a Mac, the scripts folder will probably contain both the actual script and an OSX file with the same name but a period/dot at the front. I think you selected the wrong file.


These '.' files are created by OSX but are hidden when looking at folders on the Mac. Cameras running CHDK (and Windows machines) see them however. If you have access to a Windows machine its a good idea to delete them from cards. Possible to do this on a mac but you have to make hidden files visible.


PS I wrote my own utility to show/hide hidden files in OSX , but there is a much better, free one available. It's called ShowOrHide, is really simple, works under Mac OS Sierra (and earlier). You can download it here. The author is French, so by default the dialog appears in French (or did on my machine), but there's a menu option to switch to English.

Thank you for the input. Your research was I guess correct and the kap_uav.lua is working just great (I downloaded it on a PC instead of Mac).   

Still one open question...   I am working with the clickpanpro http://www.gentles.ltd.uk/clickpan/pro.htm.   Is there a way to disable the 'timer' function in this current kap_uav.lua release?  (Because the command for shooting is given by the clickpanpro)

If you go the CHDK Script Menu and set the script parameter labelled  USB Shot Control?  to OneShot then the script will ignore its "timer" function and only take a shot when the USB signal from the clickpanpro toggles voltage on the USB connector's +5V input pin.
