Great news.

I just downloaded the latest version of Karamba in English.
Michael did a fantastic job as now you have a pull down menu where you can select between German, English, French, Italian, Dutch, Polish and Portuguese.

Each language is setup with a dictionary file, but only German and English are set.

As we are an International community of multi ethnicity, I would need a couple of people speaking one of these languages: Italian, Dutch, Polish and Portuguese to help me to fill up the dictionary files.

This is a very easy job and should not take more than 15 min.

Here is a small sample of the English dictionary. Basically, you would replace one string with one of the other language. Only the msgstr (which stands for message string in programming) would have to be translated.


#: unit1.K_Sprache
msgctxt "unit1.rs_aktiv"
msgid "Select Language"
This will become:
msgstr "Select Langue" in French


#: unit1.K_Hinterrad
msgctxt "unit1.K_Hinterrad"
msgstr "Rear"
This will become: msgstr "Arrière" in French

#: unit1.K_Durchmesser
msgctxt "unit1.K_Durchmesser"
msgstr "Diameter"
This will become: msgstr "diamètre" in French

If you want to volunteer, please send me a PM with the language that you select and I will send you a sample of the dictionary file.

I know, Google translate could work but Google is not as good as us when it's about bikes.
As soon as these files are done, Michael will compile a Linux version too(That may even work on a Mac).

Thanks in advance for your help.

I had the opportunity to review the new version, and one small correction had to be made.
One nice added feature is the comparison between 2 different sizes of tires
It's looking very good, and as soon as the tests are completed, it should be available for download.
Here is a teaser.....

Linux Version is ready and has to be tested.
Denmark is in language list.  translation has to be done, only translated "Language" to "valg af sprog" to test it.  Very Happy
Without Google, i'am lost...  

CrazyFrog has language Files, so if someone is interessted in translating a few words,  pm him.

Already done:
German

Wow you're fast. I volonteer to test the linux version - i'm a Ubuntu 14.04 user. I have Debian Wheezy and Ubuntu 12.04 ready as well.

Your skills in danish is sounds  like mine in Nepaleese. Then again i heard from foreigners that danish is one of the most difficult languages to learn so maybee your skills i danish is better than mine in nepaleese Very Happy

I'll pm CF

Michael,

Thank you for your work on this. Like an increasing number of people, I made the leap from PC to MAC, so am unable to run the programme from the download link you kindly provided. If the Linux version works on a MAC, that would be fantastic - more than happy to assist with the testing, if I can.

Whilst a "typical" native English speaker (i.e. have a pathetically limited knowledge of other languages beyond the most basic holiday phrases in French, Portuguese, Spanish, German, Italian and more recently Icelandic), I do work with a couple of Dutch guys and a Polish guy. I have PM'd CF to see if you need any further help with the translations but may be able to get some "specialist" help with your project.

Hello,
yes, maybe my danish is a little bit rusty   lol! but, you're the man!
English is also not my native language. So sometimes it is not that easy to exactly write down, what "german brain" is thinking Laughing 
Hope, that most of text is readable for you. 

I don't think, that the Linux version will be run on mac! It is possible to cross compile the Source for mac, but i never do this before, so i had to figure out this... ( i never owned a mac...)

Mainly Linux Version is good for all X derivates (Ubuntu, Lubuntu, Mint a.s.o.) with I386 CPU!
Raspberry PI is possible, but this is an ARM CPU! That's different Type of technologie and as you can read above, we need to cross compile for ARM; possible...

Windows version shall work on XP and up (i'm on WIN10, no version under availible...)

As always: There is no solution, wich will fix it all. Maybe we get 85% 


Now waiting on testing results, fix a few bugs and you all can test, on wich system it will be working.


Best, Michael

Hello Michael,

When I got the first Linux version this morning, this is the first thing that I tried. Running it on the Mac (I have a dual boot machine Windows/Mac). It failed with the error message: cannot load the libraries.
I was very busy today and couldn't test the Linux version (I have an Unbutu workstation at work...).
I will write a very quick tutorial and send the dictionary files to our volunteer helpers. (Thanks to them).
As soon as I get them back and after testing them, I will forward them to you to include them in the package.

Cheers and thank you again.

Bert

Hi all, I've had a bit of a play today after downloading the windows and linux versions of Karamba V2.

The good news for me is that the linux version works a treat on Puppy Linux which I have as my preferred system on my workshop laptop and the Windows version works as well. I dual boot the same laptop with Win 7.

I've connected both operating systems to my K75 from that laptop and all is good. One test that I did was to set the units to MPH and the value to 100; my speedo calibrated in kilometres indicated 100 or thereabouts. I then changed the radio button at the top of screen to KMH and the speedo needle rose up to approx 160. I had the laptop volume setting at maximum and the volume slider in Karamba at maximum also. If I slowly reduced the volume slider in Karamba the bike speedo needle held steady until the volume slider was about the 75% level then dropped away to zero.

The two shots below are the Puppy Linux screen and the bike speedo (interestingly I found that my bike speedo is accurate at 150 KMH with the +1 tyre size - pity the law won't let me ride there).




I also ran Karamba on Ubuntu Linux. I use version 14.04 LTS with all updates installed.
The program runs OK but does not display the volume and speed slider bars. See the photo below.


Since I have Linux Mint 15 also available running under VM Ware Fusion on my iMac I gave it a run as well and as expected, given Mint is based on Ubuntu, the program ran OK but the volume and speed sliders did not display on it as well.


Great work Michael. A constructive comment is to remove the lower case mph that is above the range of speed preset buttons on the right hand side. You can hardly notice it and it doesn't change when the units are changed. Also tyre (or tire) width is millimetres not inches and maybe rename "Rear width/height", Aspect Ratio. These are only tidy up suggestions.

Cheers

Hi,
got a little bit feedback on last Version. Problems with Linux seems to be fixed ( see Note "Not for Linux User.txt" inside zip file)
Translation might be bad in some parts... please give me a notice!

You can download and test Karamba, before i will make a final distribution.


Download Beta for testing


Zip file contens a Folder "KARAMBA". Unpack it, to whatever destination you prefere.
For Windows, you have to double click Karamba.exe
For Linux, you have to (double) click Karamba
Additional for Linux: you have to make Karamba executable! (set permissions)

Good luck  lol!


Best, Michael

I just downloaded the latest beta version which include all the dictionary files.
When starting the software (Windows version), it open and closes right away.
I quickly found the problem.
2 files (K-Models.ini and Karamba.ini) are missing on archived file.
After copying the ones from the previous version, Karamba is working.
The digital display of the actual speed has been reworked with an new graphic.
Great job Michael! and also.... thanks to all people showing interest in Michael's project and helping debugging.

Micheal, Your App looks very nice, and I am eager to check the speedometers on my 3 bricks.  Problem is, I don't understand how to install it on my laptop.  I have all the files downloaded, and have placed the icon on my desktop.  When I click on the icon, all I get is a picture of the icon on a new page.

How do I get the icon to open the program?   I'm sorry, but I am not very smart with computers anymore.

Unfortunately, a small error had crept.  Embarassed
Some of the Tire Sizes inside Models.ini aren't correct.

Please, download it one more time and replace all Files.


Thanks to Bert, GAZ and Serge (french part of translation)! Without your help it would not be in the state...

Bert did have a few ideas, we will talk about, let's see  Very Happy

I will check out if it is possible with a few spare parts and a serial connector, to read out ECU and ABS and to reset both on error.
Think, it will be possible. I've done this already inside the UDIAG Project...

yes, it is possible! Works on desk...  Very Happy

What you can do with 10 electronic parts and the new Software is:

Speedo, as in Karamba
read Motronic (4V ECU)
reset Motronic
read ABS (1/2)
reset ABS (1/2)
adjust TPS Sensor

stay tuned  Very Happy

Checked the calibration on my 4 valve RS with 160-60 ZR18 tire.   Bike speedo reads about 2 mph high at 40 mph and below, but is perfect from 50mph and up.

One thing I noticed is that the bike's odometer is very accurate turning 2 miles in 2 minutes at 60 mph.  However, the odometer on the Karamba runs very slow and barely registers 1.4 miles in 2 minutes.

It's not a big deal because the two minute check at 60 mph confirms the accuracy of the bike's instrument.  Just wondering if anyone else has noticed the same thing.

@Robmack
it isn't possible to read HAL-Sensor positioning this way.
But, it isn't neccessary to do this. There is a notch visible to adjust and i prefered a 6 degree prev. self made notch  Very Happy
Must have a look for pictures...

Edit:
found a picture from "self made" notch 6° 
I have flashed this notch with a strobe light. That's all.

*** BETA STATE ***

For those who want to play around with a solder iron and want to do a few things more than speedo calibration,
this is the rigt stuff!  Very Happy

First of all: Karamba is also inside this Software.

Additional:
you have to solder a little electronic equipment. It isn't that complicated! There are only 10 Parts to solder.
Have a look at the Schematics...

What you will need is:
-Serial Connector on your PC (such as USB/SERIAL Cable)
- 3 Resistors 10K
- 3 Diodes 1N4148
- 3 BSP78 (Smart Lowside Power Switch)
pice of cable to connect to K's diagnostic connector


If you think, it would fit for you, read further description...
if you don't, stop reading  lol!



With the little "self made Connector" you are able to

4V Models, having Motronic(all K100/4V, K1100, K1200*, R1100*)
NOT FOR 2V Jetronic Models!

-read out ECU (Motronic) error codes
-reset ECU (Motronic)

-read TPS (Throttle position Sensor) and adjust


for all Models having ABS Type-I or Type-II

-read ABS error
-reset ABS Control Unit if there are error codes (blinking ABS light)


if you like this, try it and give me a notice..



For Windows AND Linux

Although the signal comes from the same speedo sensor, the circuitry splits off separately to the speedo and odo in the cluster so messing with the speedo calibration will not impact the odo.

At least in all of the Ks I've owned, the odometers have been pretty accurate. There may be some minor variations (1-2%) if you play with different tire sizes but nothing material in magnitude.

But you're right. The odo is not affected by calibrating the speedo. This was mentioned before.

Yes, the separate circuitry for the odo and speedo are what make using something like Karamba the best way to calibrate a K speedo.  High running speedos are not unique to BMW. In the US (and probably elsewhere) there's a product called Speedo-Healer that will take the output from a speedo sensor and drop the frequency in order to calibrate speedometer. I've seen good reviews of them but on a K that would also cause the odo to run 10% or so slow. 

Then again, what's the difference between a K with 220,000 miles and 200,000? LOL.

MIcheal, Duck, I only mentioned the odometer originally because I have a non standard tire on my RT and I was interested in seeing what the odometer error would be.  From my old enduro and rally days I still have the habit of amusing myself when traveling by doing time and distance calculations in my head and checking arrival times at landmarks.  Thought that by knowing the odometer correction factor it would add an additional thing to consider.

Downloaded the latest version, and it works perfectly.  Kudos to Micheal for a great job.  Thank you for making such a handy application.  Looking forward to building the diagnostic system as I am having a rich running situation on my Motronic.

Duck, good to see you around again.  I recently purchased a Rostra cruise control for my K75RT and hope to be starting the install soon following the comments on your install.  Before I start, I have a couple of questions about mounting the servo.  Is it possible to contact you by PM through this forum?

.75,
keep in mind, that the Software from K-Diag is in Beta State!
Speedo inside is working, as in Karamba.
The other functions my need a little correction on a few gears  Very Happy

This can be made easily in the Setup  (i hope so...)  where you can Read "DON'T TOUCH THIS" lol!

Micheal, I see the BSP 78 device is in a surface mount package.  Have you designed a printed circuit for the device?  Is there a source that you know of where I can obtain a board usable with these devices?  Surface mount is new to me, and I need to see what resources are available for building your circuit.

Hi .75,
check also for BTS117. It is a TO220 Design.

In time, i've not made a board design, but i can do this also! (Eagle CAD)
Only made the Schematic.

Should i do the Design in SMD or not?

should be like this (length is about 5cm...  ~2 inch)

FYI: I just updated the broken links in that thread because I dropped the classickbikes.com domain but all of the info is still online under my other domain.

I'd really prefer it if you just ask questions in that thread instead of PMing me as other people may have the same questions.

i did the CAD work. It is an option to use the smd parts, it also fits the TO220 BTS117.
With discrete parts, the PCB is single sided.


Download Eagle CAD Files

SMD please!  It is sooooo much easier to build, debug, and correct than through hole.

K-diag needs an older PC with 9-pin serial and maodern laptops lack a traditional RS232 port. Is there a solution using USB?
