    still no character LCD support in 1.2

    we have been back and forth on this one for a while. I have a couple HD44780 character LCDs that work perfectly well with lcdcenter and stuff, but no longer work with cf 1.2.

    I sent David one of my lcds a while back and he made some modifications to the code and sent me a new exe that worked great. now with the new cf 1.2, I have a permanently mounted lcd in my dash that is completely blank.
    (insert big frowny face here)

    please help

    that is so weird!

    am I doing something wrong? is there some configuration step I am missing? Ive installed the port95nt thing, and it works fine with lcdcenter. when I turn it on in cf is just makes the screen go blank.

    I will look into it and pull out all 3 of my VFD devices and verify them again...

    Centrafuse does not need port95, it doesn't use it...
