These are not in the nightly builds.

Believe it or not, I have yet to try my latest fullres silent pics changes (they are about 1 month old). I just couldn't find time to use my camera at all.

however.. thank you a lot.
so if you find time to test it, it would be really nice to implement that stuff sometime.

My spare time has dropped to almost zero (usually I can barely find time to read the forum), so please don't expect major progress from me in the near future. I expect things to clear up around January or February; until then I'm stuck with personal stuff unrelated to ML (and unrelated to Apertus).

Nightly build test screenshot warning
« Reply #930 on: November 01, 2014, 08:21:32 PM »
Hey everyone again.
Why the line beta.warn=1 in magic.cfg always returns to 1, even if changed to 0 manually?
I thought this could be a way of disabling annoying randomly appearing beta warning, but it's not.

The 'beta.warn' in the config is the day of the month the user was last warned, basically it is used to only warn the user once per day. Like I've already mentioned, if you would like to modify this behavior, it is very easy, but you have to modify the code and compile it yourself, there's not another way to do it.

Code: [Select]
CONFIG_INT("beta.warn", beta_warn, 0);
static int get_beta_timestamp()
{
    #ifdef CONFIG_QEMU
    return 1;
    #endif
   
    struct tm now;
    LoadCalendarFromRTC(&now);
    return now.tm_mday;
}
static int beta_should_warn()
{
    int t = get_beta_timestamp();
    return beta_warn != t;
}

static void beta_set_warned()
{
    unsigned t = get_beta_timestamp();
    beta_warn = t;
}

canon 5DMK2: Mode: M; ISO 50; backeting automatic count - camera makes 1 photo with ISO50 and the next picutures with ISO 100. If I start with ISO 100 it is OK (no ISO change). If have no logfile for this.

Hello, I'm new. Well, not really, I'm old. But new here. So I hope i'm doing this the right way.

I installed today. Canon 5D Mark iii Firm 123, No real problems. There is one feature I like to use. as I use it on my Mark ii, The motion detect.
It's not working. some of it is working. The screen comes up as though its working. white box, the little motion in the top let corner shows with
(motion 0 ) no matter what setting i use. 1-30 nothing happens. is it something i'm doing or not doing? it works great on Mark ii

another note. steady hand will shoot moving or not moving. 1-30 sensitivity or just not working correctly?

exposure diff seams to be working ok. just a quick test though

Thank you in advance for your time. I tried hard to find a topic on this. If I missed it. Sorry

@shez5523

I think it is still awaiting 'repair' :-)

Hello everybody! I'm new. My name is Roberto. I hope i'm in the right topic.
That's my problem: I have a canon 550d. I have installed Magic Lantern on my sd and it works properly on my camera.
The problem is that i can't update the magic lantern. When i put on my sd card, the new files, with update...the camera doesn't work... 
I just download the update on my pc and put the new files on the sd, as the guide says.. :(
Would you please help me?
Thank you for your time...I tried to find a topic on this. If I missed it i'm sorry!

Delete Autoexec.bin and ML directory and copy extracted nightly build contents to card.

Hi and thank you for your answer!
This is what i do. I delete Autoexec.bin and ML directory and then i copy extracted nightly build contents to my card. I know that is easy and it is just what i do, but doesn't work :(
The camera doesn't work when i copy the new files, so i extract the sd card, i copy again the first version on my sd and it works. 
So frustrating... :(
What can i do?

"Doesn't work" is not that helpful.
Please be more detailed.

Which file have you downloaded? From where? Link please.

You're right! :)
So i download the file from here:
https://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/
and i select my camera: 550D.109
Then i extract the files and i copy them on my sd. I tried overwriting the old files, but doesn't work.
I tried deleting old files and copying the new ones, but doesn't work as well...
Tell me please what can i do... :(
And thank you again for your time!

As I wrote before: "Doesn't work" is not that helpful.

Just to be sure:
You deleted ML directory and Autoexec.bin from the card and copied nightly build Autoexec.bin and ML directory to the card?
Remove battery, insert battery and try again.

If this won't do the trick: If you're copying the "old" (whatever version that may be, you decided not to tell until now) files and directory to the card and cam will startup? Have you tried this lately?

Actually i didn't remove battery..i just put the new files on the sd...let me see if it works...
Sorry for my doesn't work. When i sayed doesn't work i wanted to say that the camera with the new files doesn't start. the red light flashes and nothing works. So i have to remove the battery and delete the new files from sd, then the camera works again.
Ok i try removing the battery and i'll let you know
The version that i put is this: magiclantern-0.2.0.rc1.550d.fw109

I have a question. What if install directly a new version, without the first version?

Ok, I deleted ML directory and Autoexec.bin from the card and I copied nightly build Autoexec.bin and ML directory to sdcard. Done
I Removed the battery, inserted battery and tried again. But nothing. The red light flashes...and the camera doesn't do anything. So i remove the battery, i remove the sd card and the the camera works again. But with a new version of magic lantern, doesn't do anything. The camera doesn't work. Maybe i should send you a video of what i do? :(

This version is outdated. By far.

Start from scratch:
Format the card using a cardreader.
Insert card into cam and format again.
Back into cardreader.
Copy extracted nightly contents to card
Download http://bitbucket.org/magiclantern/magic-lantern/downloads/magiclantern-v2.3.550D.60D.600D.50D.500D.5D2.zip. Expand it and copy 550D-109.fir to card.
Insert card into cam and run firmware update.

So starting from scratch as you told me:
I formatted the card.
But why should i update the firm ware at 1.09 if the firm ware of my camera is already 1.09?  :'(

If you done everything as described above there should be an installation screen which will ask you to reboot the cam before 30 seconds have passed.
