I thought I’d have a crack at building one from scratch.
Before getting too ahead of things, I thought I’d try out the board with the firmware.
I have my Photon board connected to an SD adapter, with the SD card containing a copy of the wifi files, and I have populated the wifi.ini file with my wifi details.
The firmware appears to have flashed correctly and connected to the Particle Console.
But, when I go to the local IP address it won’t load the web server.
I guess the main question I have is whether the firmware/server runs when the rest of the hardware (like LEDs) are not connected?
I have tried the 2018 and 2017 firmware, and tried redownloading.
Firstly thanks for your reply.
When I first read your Game Frame Wi-Fi Adapter Documentation, which is clearly for existing Game Frames, it talks about the SD files download creating a new ‘Wifi’ folder.
But what it doesn’t note is that this sd_wifi.zip file doesn’t contain ALL the system files. 8^P
On a hunch, I purchased the SD Files from the shop which contains a couple more .ini files, and the webserver now runs. I thought the SD Files on the shop was only for the artwork, which I would have eventually bought after getting far enough through the build to prove that it was at least working.
It might be worth you adding a small note at step 5 on the documentation page noting you also need the core SD Files from the shop.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to moving forward with this build.
