The “reboot” command.December 3, 2020 at 4:19 pm #4779
Got the external antenna installed and used the command to change to external.
The wifi_signal still shows “11” so I am still suspicious that the return code I am getting back isn’t what I think it is. I attached the readout from the Packet Sender. What am I doing wrong?
I tested the auto-reboot command. I had it running every four hours which seems to keep it going but I want to try the antenna so that is currently disabled.
Either way I should be able to keep it going all the time now.
Which brings me back to my original post. I have two adapter boards that I will mail to anybody that wants them. I have a spare Photon (soldered to the adapter board) which apparently wasn’t broken so I have a spare now.

Sorry, I’m not seeing the “11” response in your screenshot. Can you try sending the commands from the Particle Console and see what response you get?

I’m sorry. I should have indicated that return values were coming back from my calls via UDP.
IPAddress ipaddress = IPAddress.Parse(ipAddress);
IPEndPoint endPoint = new IPEndPoint(ipaddress, 8888);
Socket s = new Socket(endPoint.Address.AddressFamily, SocketType.Dgram,
byte msg = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(command);
var result = s.SendTo(msg, endPoint);
The screenshot showed what the packet sender displayed which I hoped would be more helpful but I didn’t see anything there either.
I got on the particle console (via the web site) and the wifi_signal shows “100” for me. I do have the antenna attached and used the command to use the external antenna.
I will leave it without rebooting for a few days and see what happens. If it still loses connection for some reason I can always turn on the scheduled rebootDecember 7, 2020 at 6:25 pm #4784
So far the GameFrame is still going with no reboot and still taking commands via udp. I don’t want to jinx myself but it has gone further than it has in a long time.December 9, 2020 at 5:20 pm #4785
Well it lasted a couple of days before it would no longer take commands. I am setting the scheduler to reboot twice a day to see if that keeps the unit running continuously.December 12, 2020 at 4:06 am #4790
With the reboot twice a day the GameFrame seems to run all the time now. I suspect something in the code is the issue but I’m too lazy to go through it to determine the issue. For now it keeps working which was my goal.
I know Jeremy doesn’t get paid and supports this (and the web site) with NO MONEY coming in which is a labor of love.
Is it possible for anyone to donate some money to offset the costs of the website or the support supplied? Maybe a PayPal account to send money to?January 8, 2021 at 8:29 pm #4799
Just a follow-up. The GameFrame has been running without an issue for 4 weeks now. I am rebooting once a day via task scheduler/command line which seems to keep everything going.
