    Hey,
    using my rig now since 10 month a strange issue came across:
    When using SimUtils (latest version) the PWMmax values are strange. They are always 16 for Motor1, 17 for Motor2.
    If I change it and write (save image), stop and start SimUtils, the same.
    All others values are fine and correct.
    When checking with Arduino program tool and reading out the PWMmax1 value, it is 140, as it should be.
    But why is SimUtils saying a value of 16 (or overwriting it) ?

    I am using SMC3 with sabertooth code.

    cheers, Arazok

    Ok, it was my fault ! Problem found:
    With some slide changes to the SMC3 softstart code, the PWMMax values are slowly increasing, while SimUtils reads the values. That's why the wrong values (too low) are shown in SimUtils.
    I need to adapt my code :)
