Talking about a roller coaster... I uninstalled papywizard, deleted the folder under the user/roaming directory and reinstalled. Now its working! I had to spin the pitch forwards to where I just let it run to get it back to 0 or else it always was -3780. Now when the unit starts up its at 0 which is...

Something is most certainly wrong and I'm a bit worked up about it. The lid is on and on tight. I tested it in a fairly dark room and tried it out on the automatic mosaic mode. The pitch just keeps on going round and round... I stopped the mosaic shoot when the pitch was at -3780.3 The scary thing i...

Its really odd... I have never had to set the reference (zero/zero) point before. Historically I've just use the upper and lower set points and the pano has worked flawlessly for me. Odd that this has just started to happen now along with the other issues. I didn't let it rotate around too far. I im...

I can't believe I'm having all these issues right now. Ok so I found out that the hotkeys have been dropped from the latest build. Furthermore I seems that the arm side setting is only available in the latest release. So I'm kind of stuck. The latest bug I'm experiencing is in automatic mosaic shoot...

lol... installed it. It works! Thank you. I got confused with all the different builds. Had a bit of an issue with the new serial port speed selection too. Took a few times to get it right. When using the Merlin/Orion shutter, can that also bracket my g10? I personally don't think it will. Hey thank...

Hi Andrew,
Ok this is kind of odd... I am running papywizard 2.0.0 and don't have the pitch arm side drop down box in the shooting tab/menu. My choices are "head orientation", "camera orientation" and "Stablization Delay".

What do you think?

I got it to work... I downloaded the latest version and the keyboard inputs work great. However how my tilt controls are reversed and can't seem to figure out how to reverse them. I thought this was adjusted in the Pappywizard shooting menu but after several attempts using different settings I faile...

Hi Fredric... I downloaded it and to my great joy it worked. However I am now experiencing a rather annoying issue where the up and down control are reversed. I thought this could be adjusted under pappywizard's shooting menu. I have tried several combinations and nothing seems to reverse the pitch ...

I'm not a programmer but using a usb joystick would work if there are hot keys assigned to the up, down, left and right buttons in the pappywizard user interface. Right now the only key assignments I found were "esc" escape, "tab" and "home&end". Anybody know how I might add windows pc keyboard hot ...

pappywizzard gamepad input

I use a laptop to control pappywizards pitch and pan. I works but I have to be hovering over the laptop all the time. I would love to know if there might be a way to use a USB gamepad to pan and tilt the Orion/Merlin as wall as the mouse over click on the Pappywizard UI? Any thoughts would be greatl...
