      !!FORUM DOWNTIME!!   01/16/18

      On 2018-01-27 the forums will be going down at around 1100 GMT0 for up-to 5 hours to allow for hardware configuration changes on the system that hosts these forums as well as various updates to patch recently publicised CPU vulnerabilities. Apologies for the inconvenience that this will cause.  If you would like to keep up-to-date on the progress of the work, join our IRC channel (http://webchat.esper.net/?nick=&channels=oc) or our Discord ( https://discord.gg/0hVukoQ2KYifZFCA ).

Draconic Control - Get everything out of your draconic reactor

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if I am just stupid or what, but I cannot figure out how to create the .cfg file for the computer. I have read and re read your instructions on the website about 50 times, and ive tried typing /etc/draconic_control.cfg into the console and it does nothing. I have everything setup perfectly, and I just wanna get this going. Could someone please help me?

 

 

Edit: okay, I got the .cfg file create page open, but now it keeps erroring on me. and I don't know whats up. Here are some screenshots.

Hi,

first of all, you're missing a comma in the first line. I also recommend you to use the same linebreak-/indentation-style as I'm using on the website (it helps a lot in case you're planning on tweaking a bit).

Then in the second screenshot you're trying to execute the configuration file as a program. I'm pretty sure you know what's wrong with that :P

In case you don't, let me quote the guide: 

You can now start the controller with draconic_control start or rc draconic_control start and you're ready to go.

 

You should be ready to go afterwards.

I got the program up and running, but as soon as I put in the awakened draconium into the reactor and hit warm up, the computer flashes danger, and I let it "warm up" over night and came back and nothing had changed whatsoever. I don't know whats wrong. I set everything up perfectly. :(

Don't worry about that. It's...uh....normal ^^;

Nothing can go wrong during warm up anyways.

 

EDIT: Do you mean the reactor hasn't properly warmed up? Check your flux gates. The one on the injector should show 1000000RF/t. If it doesn't but the one on the stabilizer does, you've mixed up the gate addresses. Also re-check the gates orientation if the flow looks fine.

Both Flux gates show everything correctly. the orientation is fine. it just doesn't warm up. I literally started it, it went into warm up mode. I left it overnight and came back and it was still in warm up mode without the ability to actually start it.

In this case you don't have any energy stored to actually warm it up OR something is wrong with your power lines and your reactor doesn't get any.

I like the monitoring system but i was thinking as a suggestion/ feedback... you could add more touchscreen capabilities to the gui. for example this computercraft script allows me to edit how much output i want directly from the gui. ( https://github.com/acidjazz/drmon ). just a thought :) and yes i know its more complicated than it sounds.

Getting GUI Error - Connection Failure

OpenOS 1.6.1
Draconic Control v1.42
SkyFactory3 (1.10.2)
Draconic Evolution - 2.1.6.263
Running on a multiplayer server
All systems are Chunkloaded

Followed this Tutorial https://forum.craftersland.net/topic/22059-open-computers-program-for-draconic-reactor-direwolf20-mc1102/

Running "componants" gives flux gates and reactor at correct address.
draconic_control runOnce says nothing
draconic_control start says nothing
output flux gates are placed in the right direction

@ClownApocalypse

If you've actually done everything correctly, then I'll have to take a look whether the API changed or not - though I don't think it did.

"Connection Failure" means exactly what you might think it means: It can't contact one of the components. Please double-check whatever you did with https://tenyx.de/draconic_control/. ESPECIALLY the configuration part. Please make sure there is no typo in the keys as well. Also please try to reboot your computer (although I'm pretty sure you already tried that ;) ).

I'm having the same problem as a couple of other people on here.  I have run this reactor a bit myself and it works fine.  But when I hook the adapters up to the flux gates, they don't seem to ever change flow rates at all.  The drainback one is set at 1,716RF and the output one is set at 0RF.  I hit charge and let it go once for about an hour and it was charging but of course very very slowly.  I wasn't willing to wait so I shut it down.  Then I hooked another flux gate into the injector to speed up the warm up and see if the computer would control it once it was started which worked... i got it warmed right up but when I started it, it just left the output flow at zero.  I'm not sure where to even start looking for a fix.  I've actually set the components up twice now with the same results.  

Any chance of getting this to work?  

Thanks...
