Multigeiger too many arguments to function 'hw_timer_t*

Hi,
I´ve tried to setup multigeiger according to Setup — MultiGeiger V1.17.0-dev Dokumentation
Arduino-IDE verifying multigeiger.ino (MultiGeiger-1.16.0) gives me 112 lines of error-messages
Ist this usual process or did I miss something reading the docs?

Compilation error: too many arguments to function ‘hw_timer_t* timerBegin(uint32_t)’

Thanks Juggler for the hint! Always thought newer version ist better version, but seems like I still have to gain experience - I will try out an older version…

Same issue after upgrading Arduino core. Some changes were made in API. Migration from 2.x to 3.0 - - — Arduino ESP32 latest documentation

So I changed setup_timers function in timers.cpp and the timers seem not to repeat anymore - without errors on compiling.

After debugging I can say, new timers do repeat.

hw_timer_t *setup_timer(int timer_no, void (*isr)(), int period_us) {
hw_timer_t *timer = timerBegin(1000000);
timerAttachInterrupt(timer, isr);
timerAlarm(timer, period_us, true, 0);

return timer;
}

On submitting data the second time, I get an -2 error in this transmission.cpp line: int httpResponseCode = client->hc->POST(body); , which was responsible for not receiving data continuously. Thereis some changes in WiFi too after upgrade.

If you are successful and still have the nerve to add a user-defined MQTT, I would be interested in the compiled firmware files.

I run a (LoRa,Bluetooth,Sound) stripped sketch (based on V1.16.0) on a ESP32 and send JSON to a php script. I know not much in MQTT. To this moment I could not solve the -2 response issue. Maybe later this week, I can show you, what I have.

…thanks hero! Your changes of setup_timers function in timers.cpp stopped the ‘hw_timer_t’ - error.

I tried to compile multigeigerV1.16.0. with older Ardiuino-V1.6.3.
I had to add a list of libraries manually:

  • lotWebConf by Balazs Kelemen Vers. 3.21
  • NimBLE-Arduino by h2zero Vers. 1.4.1
  • U8g2 by oliver olikraus Vers. 2.34.22
  • Adafruit Unified Sensor by Adafruit Vers: 1.1.14
  • Adafruit BME280 Library by Adafruit Vers. 2.2.4
  • Adafruit BME680 Library by Adafruit vers. 2.0.4
  • I2CDevice Adafruit BuslO by Adafruit
  • lmic MCCI_LoRaWAN_LMIC_library

With that setting I ran into the next errors, which made the compiler to exit:

exit status 1
no matching function for call to 'iotwebconf::Builderiotwebconf::FloatTParameter::Builder(const char [20])
