I have had my Lich for a few weeks to a month and the entire time trying to work with it has just been agony. It makes me sad because there are so many cool things that can be done with it, I just don’t know if I’m missing something or if I have an especially fucked up unit or what.
After I built my lich I tried to calibrate, could not calibrate, cue hours and hours of looking over my solder job and the schematic before finding and digging through the forum and finding out that the owl board I was sent has a firmware that just does not work with the Lich.
something like 20 or 30 firmware flashes later, not an exaggeration, I had a calibrated unit and could start putting patches on and messing with it. Since then I have worked with it for extended periods on 5 or 6 occasions and it has always gone the same way. Most of these sessions have been between 1 and 3 cycles of me loading up and messing with patches before the Lich decides it’s going to flush and/or corrupt its memory before I have to spend an extended period flashing and erasing memory before it decides it wants to work and calibrate again, and somewhere along the line I just give up and stop using the module at all.
I’m frustrated right now so a couple things here might be very very minor exaggerations here but this basically my entire experience with the module. Am I in the minority here? Am I doing something wrong? Am I just supposed to do this over and over until I have a solid lists of patches that actually load and function and then never plug it into my pc again? I’m just about done, so any sort of suggestions would be appreciated because the potential of this module is awesome and the reality of it has been a fruitless major time sink.
