  1. Wow! Was not expecting that news! Thanks for looking into it!
  2. Thanks.... That's helpful! The PIC32 timers are a bit complicated but as long as I won't be stepping on other services I might try my hand at some headers to manipulate the registers needed on a separate board from this project. I chucked in the Core Timer Service callback in mine and kept it nothing more than a pin toggle. I'll try to leave that in and test everything out with just a polling loop schedule doing the work for now. If I get it all working including the other buses that are needed, then I'll see if I can move the RC serial into the core service. If not I'll see
  3. Can't speak to OP's direct situation but in my case, you could program Arduino based boards as I believe they recently updated their toolchains. The Pic32 stuff, because it comes with its own toolchains that are still 32bit, Mac will now refuse to run them as all support for 32bit is apparently gone. So I was not able to compile/verify at all for any Pic32 based ChipKit board.
  4. Yeah, its the 32bit toolchain. I had to setup a Windows VM and run from that. Apple is really raising a middle finger to anyone that has to do more than browse, run app store apps and text on computer these days. Used to be my favorite platform for that stuff, not sure how long I'm going to keep paying that premium for this kind of treatment though. I'm interested to know if it's on the roadmap as well. Don't imagine it's a small job to make it all 64bit native.
  5. I'm working on a controller for an RC / Autonomous rover using a WiFire board I pulled out and dusted off. Most of the code will do okay with the speed I've got and polling so I'm just using the milliseconds timer to control execution and coding for time sharing. One bit I really wanted to have take place very reliably though is reading the serial data from the R/C receiver device. It's coming in every few milliseconds and I want to keep it updated and the serial buffer cleared no matter what else is going on. I was looking at the timers and thinking setting up a timer interrupt would
