The config folder I sent was everything I had simply zipped it and uploaded. Unless you needed the base folder as well (the one I used as a baseline for plasmac) Do you know what program is responsible for creating the missing files? PnCConf?

The config files are created by PlasmaC itself. The one I am most interested in would be test_15_config.cfg there should also be a test_15_wizards.cfg

Ok so I double checked and those files are definitely missing from my latest config folder "test_15"

So I went back and checked earlier versions and found that around 60% of them have quite a few more files (12 instead of 21) including the ones you mention.

I thought creating new configs when I changed things would be a good way to reference back and forth. Looks like it was creating problems.

The structure of the config directory was changed in V0.140 (July 02) It took out all the plasmac souce links and put them in the plasmac directory so the only files in the root of the config were machine specific files. All this should be handled automatically by PlasmaC, there should be no need to copy files. If you did copy from an old directory structure and PlasmaC saw the new version then it would not fix the directory structure.

Ok that brings up a few things.

I was running the plasmac python script using mostly the same base .hal and .ini before every change and let plasmac create the config files. No copy and pasting.

I originally setup the machine In June I believe and then a couple days ago (before I hopped on here and bugged ya) tried to update everything in hopes that it would solve some of my issues.

Should I go back to one of these older configs that seems to be complete and just add everything for the THC ect. or am I looking at wiping the machine and starting fresh :/

I would first make sure your LinuxCNC is up to date then either:
1. If you have an old config that was working you could make a copy of that in your config directory then run LinuxCNC/PlasmaC then it should update itself.
2. you could create a new config by running the configurator:
linuxcnc.org/docs/2.8/html/plasma/plasma..._to_the_base_machine
use the hal and ini files from test_15/backups as the input files for the configurator (assuming your base machine hasn't changed)
