Time Lapse for G11

Hi,
New to CHDK -  trying to help a client setup a (looong) time lapse shoot with a G11.

We have gotten CHDK auto-booted without much hassle, but the couple of scripts we've tried either error or don't seem to run for more than 1 shot.

Can anyone point us in the right direction for an intervalometer script that will work on the G11? It would really be appreciated.

The closest one I've found is this:
http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/LUA/Scripts:_Accurate_Intervalometer_with_power-saving_and_pre-focus

and it returns "unsupported propset3"

I'm actually trying to walk the client through this remotely, so it's really hard to tinker and get ideas of what to try next.

Please replace propcase.lua under CHDK\LUALIB with the attached one. Then it will work. ;)

I am not sure what I am doing wrong, but when I run this script...it simply says Starting and the Finished...and nothing happens...I am puzzled.

You have probably saved your script file in the wrong format. It needs to be plain, ansi text. For lua scripts, the actual file extension must be .lua as well, otherwise the camera will interpret it as a ubasic script.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

I'm using a mac and used 'text edit' to save the script which was saved as .lua extension, from a 'plain text' doc.
Is this the correct way, or what should I be using to save the file?

It should work with TextEdit, i guess you are using unicode (wrong) instead of ANSI (correct) encoding.

Read more about Mac & scripting here:

*EDIT:
Also make sure there's really the script file on the card, not the Mac OS fork resource info file (see notes at the end of the FAQ article).
