RoverC + JoyC strange displays - Are the sticks broken ?

  • I have 2 M5Stick CPlus and use it with the RoverC plus and the JoxC .
    After a Iittle while I get them working - but both displays are not showing that, what is shown on the M5Stack website.
    NO IP adress and no charging level.

    This is the JoyC module

    This is the RoverC module

    I can push the buttons in every way - the display is not changing.

    I can bring them to work and I think the function is what it should be.

    Is there a place where I can find the code of the 2 software parts ?

    Or best would it be if there is a tutorial how to read the joysticks out and send the information to the other M5Stick or M5Stack module. (UIflow would be best.)

    In the documetation of the JoyC there is only an example how to read the values, but nothing about how to send it to another device.


  • Hello @ramaker

    no, I don't think your M5StickC Plus devices are broken. The issue is that the Arduino examples written for RoverC and JoyC are for the M5StickC (not Plus) which has a smaller screen. The M5Stack engineers will have to adapt the examples to the bigger screen.

    As a test you could install and run the display example written for M5StickC Plus to verify the screens are fine.


  • Hello again

    just saw that there is a 'Plus' version now.

    I have tried to burn the M5StickC-Plus/examples/Kit/JoyC_&_RoverC/Remote / example to my M5StickC-Plus ( joy ) but it is not working , the rover part seems to work ok and shows the addres and charging level , there is two files ( Rmote .ino and Icon.c ) i have tried to burn the first one by means of arduino ide , what is the second one for ( Icon.c ) and how to use it , please can you help me ?

  • Icon.c is an image array and should be compiled into the file and compile time.
    I am currently working on uiflow remote control code but getting a few bugs.

    Thank you very much for reply , is there any instructions or tutorial how to compile the icon.c image array into the file and compile time , i would be thankfull .
    Best Regards .
