I am trying to use a Windows shortcut to home using the TIC 249. In the shortcut location I input “ticcmd -d ticSerial --resume --home fwd --pause-on-error” but nothing happens. The command “ticcmd -d ticSerial --resume --position N --pause-on-error” works fine. Also the home forward command in the tic249 GUI works fine. Any idea what I’m doing wrong?
While looking into the problem you described, we found that after a command like
resume, the Tic often requires a slight delay (at least 15ms) before
home commands can take effect. Unfortunately, there is not an easy way to accomplish this delay using a single Windows shortcut. However, you could create a Batch file with something like the following line in it to get a 1 second delay:
ticcmd -d ticSerial --resume --pause-on-error && timeout 1 && ticcmd -d ticSerial --home fwd --pause-on-error
Could you try that and see if it works for you?
