No it auto updates when you commit to your develop (which is the merge request) and push the branch. It looks good to me now, and the merge request shows the cleanup push. I'll give it a day or two to see if anyone else wants to test and report back, but I am happy with it. Cheers!

Posting the screenshot of the view of the merge request here, for any learning devs with eyes on this conversation. You can see the additional pushes, see CI start passing, see your most recent cleanup, chronologically. This is going on here https://github.com/LegacyNsfw/PcmHacks/pull/345

Anyone can checkout Joukoy's branch, build the C# part of the project and copy the kernel dlls from the existing pcmhammer release, or add the 68k assembler and build the kernels themselves if they want to go that far and test. If they have a github account they can report results of testing in the merge request. It seems to be good, but more people, more hardware, more target ecms are all good.

G'day all, i've been doing some searching and found 2 different connection diagrams for the bench harness. The one i made is the one with 2 less wires. It does work fine with LS Droid but not with hammer and patcher goes as far as not finding DTC's and stops. Would the 2 extra wires on the first diagram make a difference?

The second image is the one that most people follow.

I would not follow the top one. That seems incorrect as it has an ALDL wire going through it, which appears to be for a different generation of PCM.

Need to have more information about what error you are receiving in PCMHammer to help.

If using the OBDX Pro GT, make sure you are using the latest J2534 API from the website (And also scantool update), as I recently put a small edit so that the GT works with the way PCMHammer is setting filters.

Well i did that and then downloaded the firmware update and the driver update. No Droid is connecting ok but with Hammer i get the message firmware upgrade needed. I downloaded the upgrade and ran as admin. Only thing i haven't tried yet is uninstalling Hammer again and re-installing. I really should stay away from computers lol

Well finally got it sorted. Firmware wasn't loading by clicking on the download even though it was telling me it was ready. Went into my computer/ program files and found it there so tried from there and it's working finally. Thanks everyone for your help and Tazzie you're a genius
