hey guys, i'm having trouble setting the ppr for my 95 civic. I have it all hooked up, and it's giving me the wrong values for the rpm any ideas. just to make sure ppr needs to be set at 02:00 right?

I've heard a few people are having an issue with the RPM calculation. I'm investigating right now and will post an immediate code update with a fix when I determine what the problem is. You are correct, your PPR should be 2.00 -- the 0.1 is only meant in extreme circumstances when a precise calculation is needed. 99% of the time a whole number is used. Stay tuned -- I'll get back soon with a solution.
Can you tell me what's happening at certain RPM points -- what is the car at vs what is the shift-light reading?

Hi Christopher -
Have you tried using the SENS mode FREQ instead? Let me know
so i got around to messing with the car, ive been trying to upload the code and i keep getting this message
Arduino: 1.6.8 (Mac OS X), Board: "Arduino Nano, ATmega328"
/Users/christopherzemla/Downloads/ShiftLightV2_41-master/ShiftLightV2_41/ShiftLightV2_41.ino:36:111: fatal error: TM1637Display.h: No such file or directory
#include <TM1637Display.h> //#include <Adafruit_LEDBackpack.h>
exit status 1
Error compiling for board Arduino Nano.
This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.
I will do additional research. As of now, the only suggestion I have is to ensure you have the correct RPM signal wire and make sure you have a good power and ground to the Shift Light. Try changing your power source or ground location and see if it improves.
Other ideas that come to mind are to try a PPR of 4 or 1 and see how that affects the code. Try turning on/off the "cond" feature or try switching the SENS method again to Freq or Intr.
Let me know how it goes. Sorry this isn't working quite right yet, but I'll do my best to get it up and running for ya.
