im looking for some help/tips/info from folks familiar with the Fleischmann twin-centre controller. i was familiar with hornby zero-1 but this dcc is a whole new ball game! lots of variables/variations etc!.
when talking about speed steps, are those set for each decoder/loco or is it the controller or both that can be set for 14/28 or 128 speed steps?.
and if the controller is set for 128 speed steps, then do the loco-decoders also have to be set to 128? or is this automatic? im confused!
i have a fleischmann electric loco that i fitted a lenz gold mini decoder to. up to approx half- speed all is fine, but after that with each speed step increase, the loco headlights go off, increase speed by 1 more step, they come on again, next speed step up - they go off again!. then at about 3/4 speed they just flash on and off at all speed steps from 3/4 to max speed. have to say that 1/2 speed upwards is already far to fast for this loco and i need to program one of the cv's to reduce the max speed.
i find programming the decoders confusing on this controller. i can alter the loco number. but i get confused with bit and byte programming!.
if i can set speed-up and slow-down inertia, max speed and turn the lights on and off i think ill be quite happy!.
i have the decoders for my points control but i dont know how to program them!. ill come to that later once the layout is up and running, look at introductions/new members and ull see pics and my intentions for my layout!.
as i say, im kinda new to this latest dcc and any help/info/pointers would be most appreciated!.
