Is there a way to Make high beam come on first?

I'm not a programmer. Please provide exact instructions to reverse the order of beams, i.e. from low-med-high to high-medium-low. I don't really care about the order of med and low, just want high to be the first thing that comes on. Thanks

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Thanks Richard. I'm on a Mac and, again, am not a programmer. Where do I locate programs\tactical\tactical.in and on to what, or where, do I load the program in programs\tactical\tactical.ino?

Just out of curiosity, does 1000 refer to the lumens? I thought the brightest hexbright was 500.

Thank you for your patience

Hi Scott,

I'm afraid I don't have a Mac to help guide you on, however I think the best way to get you started is by following this video from David Hilton who has done quite a bit of programming for the HexBright Flex:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUbAkz_L...

It covers a Windows environment, but the two are quite similar - you'll just have to download:

- Arduino for your Mac: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

- The SI Labs CP2102 driver for your Mac: http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/pages...

All the bits about Github, downloading the HexBright sample programs, running the Arduino environment and programming should be much the same.

The values mentioned are just values along a brightness scale from zero to 1000, with 1000 being the brightest (be that 500lm or 550 or 450 - depending on actual performance and battery capacity).

ENORmously helpful! Thank you Richard.

Try loading the program in programs\tactical\tactical.ino

That should already start out at high brightness, then med, then low, then off;

int brightness[BRIGHTNESS_COUNT] = {1000, 600, 300, OFF_LEVEL};

If you actually need that to be the other way around, just swap the 1000 and the 300.
