    hello and thank you for all your work.
    i have just finished my build, I'm testing now ...in smc3 directions it states

    "Now slowly, increase PWMmax… at some point the motor should start to move. When it does check the “Green” feedback line is moving toward the “Blue” target position.
    If it is then that motor and feedback is wired correctly - proceed to test other motors.
    If it is moving away turn off motor power immediately (or quickly reduce PWMmax again)."

    now when i do this:
    (the pot is TEMP NOT connected to the motor /for testing perps/ and the YELLOW line moves up-down, the green line moves when I Manually Move the POT.

    What am i doing wrong Guys/Gals nouns

    and how would I know if the moto monster is bad?
    i don't see led on "DIR" when in action?
    should i?
    and should the Kp,Ki,Kd need to be more than zero?

    im using a Mega, could someone verify i did this correct

    SORRY

    Game Dash is a SimTools companion app and requires a SimTools Pro license.

    Sorry I don't know about the L298n support, perhaps @SilentChill can advise.
