Hey guys,

I just wanted to take a look at the Imagecraft ICC7 Compiler for the Propeller. I downloaded the Demo Version and tried to run the example programs included located in the /examples.prop directory. Unfortually neither the VGATEST.binary nor the blinkLED.binaray gives me any kind of reaction from my Hydra or my Monitor. I also tried rebuilding it. I used payload (from Catalina), the Propeller IDE itself and the ICC IDE for loading into EEPROM/RAM. But after the loading is finished nothing happens..
My first thought was that the I/O Pin definition is probably different between the Hydra and the defined testcode in ICC but according to this site http://propeller.wikispaces.com/Dev+Board+Differences the Pins are correct.
So any guess what´s the problem?

PS: I already used Catalina with succes. F.e catalina test.c -lc -D VGA compiles fine as payload test.binary loads the bin with succes and also does work afterwards

Thanks in advance

@devchatka

Which Propeller board are you using for this test?

I never made something with video and the ICC. But did you check the compiler Options -> Target?

He wrote "Hydra".

IIRC, the ICC examples are geared for the DEMO board, meaning the Blink program will be using the 16 ... 23 pins which is where the LEDs are. The VGA connector on the DEMO board also has some specific pins that it uses. If you are going to change the pin numbers in the example programs, make sure you catch every instance in the program.
