Bistro firmware question

Hello all,
I’ve got an Eagle Eye X6 with the FET + 7135 driver and the Bistro firmware. I’m having trouble activating the mode memory feature. All other configuration options seem to be working correctly,
Sometimes it will go to the next higher mode or it might even start in a lower mode the next time I turn the light on.
How long should I have to leave the light off before the mode memory will be activated?
Any ideas what’s going on with this.

Thanks

Sounds like it may be an issue with the Off Time Cap or the bleeder resistor for the lighted tail cap
ToyKeeper will most likely know, or pilotdog68.

Too drugged for a pinched nerve in my shoulder to remember things clearly, but that bleeder resistor seems to be flagging my memory…

If you want 4 modes without moon you should select 5 modes group and turn off moon

1.- To enter to config mode: tap tap until light not respond
2.- To enter to change mode group: wait until the 5th group of blinks (5 blinks), then, during the buzz, tap
3.- To select the group: wait until the 5th group of blinks (5 blinks), then, during the buzz, tap

Quote:
The config mode has several options. It will blink out a number to show which option is active, then “buzz” or “stutter” for a bit.
Click during the “buzz” to select that option. Some options may enter a secondary config mode after the light turns back on.

Options include:

5. Mode group. Choice of 1 to 8 regular modes from low to turbo.
After clicking, the light should come on in a special group-select mode. In this mode, it slowly blinks 8 times, pauses, then repeats. Turn the light off after N blinks to select mode group N. The number of levels in each group is equal to the group number, and all levels within are evenly-spaced.

Example: To select low-med-high, let it blink three times then click the button.

On the production X6v2 / X5 lights, the mode groups should have approximately the following output:

  1. 1400 lm
  2. 5, 1400
  3. 5, 293, 1400
  4. 5, 135, 543, 1400
  5. 5, 79, 293, 688, 1400

4.- To turn off moon: you should enter to config mode again, then wait until the 3rd group, then, during the buzz, tap

Now your light have 4 modes without moon: low, med, high, turbo and hidden modes as BLF A6

Sorry for my bad English (gogole translator)
