    hi Dan, id saw there is support file for BOARD_MKS.H on the makelengelo firmware… but i didnt see it (to define the board) in configure.h

    // NOTE: MKS boards are identical to RAMPS boards, except that they have a few extra features.

    so can i just use #define MOTHERBOARD BOARD_RAMPS ?

    best regards

    In Makelangelo-firmware, near line 744,

    
    int pin = parseNumber('P', -1);
    if(pin == -1) return; // no pin specified.
    #endif
    

    should be

    
    int pin = parseNumber('P', -1);
    #endif
    if(pin == -1) return; // no pin specified.
    

    Try that and let me know if it works.

    Thank you Dan for the reply.. Actually I’d just comment every error that appear while compiling the firmware & it’s work..

    But I will try your suggestion later..

    I don’t get it why MKS Gen V1.4 board have different port or slot for RepRapD1scount Smart Controller cable?.. The LCD didn’t show anything but then I’d notice some click or button sound when I try the knob.

    Maybe some flaw in Makelangelo latest firmware for board_ramps?

    check the history of board_ramps.h, maybe there’s been a change. https://github.com/MarginallyClever/Makelangelo-firmware/

    There is problem with LCD slot with MKS.. The black slot should be flip side. Maybe this will help.. I don’t try it yet but all this after I’d saw this video..

    It’s easy to take out the black slot for exp1 & 2 for smart display.

    Anyway previous firmware ver 7 can make my StepperMotor 17HS4401 (pair with A4988 red) really fast & stable without jumping or skip move but with latest firmware ver 9 kind of make it skipping move although I like the smooth acceleration it’s won’t draw very well..

    I have to use the slowest speed as possible then my drawing would be perfect with no skipping move or frame.

    Do I need to change for max step calculation etc in the Makelangelo firmware? Or should I using other driver to make it move faster without skip any move?
