Go Home ticcmd not working

Hi all,

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?


Hello, Austin.

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?
