I agree that making the IDE cloud-dependent would be good but it would be nice to have a reconciliation option as I do with Visual Studio Code. In fact I'd really like to use VSC as my IDE but when I tried it appeared that the implementation wasn't complete.
Actually, the problem is that the native IDE and the Web IDE don't share the settings. I had set it in the web IDE. I had also have to check Set Current Time in the native IDE. The reason I didn't realize that at first is that apparently, the PIXL remember the year from before so it wasn't obvious it wasn't updating the information.
Set Current Time
When I download using the Web (Chrome) IDE the timezone offset is correctly set to EST (-5) but when I use the Windows IDE it is set to zero.
Persistence. Sorry, don't have anything more specific. Of course, that means it may happen again.
One possibility is that leaving the battery out for hours may have helped.
I thought I'd followed the doc each time but ... well, it works for now and may true 2.xx at some point. I even got the IR sort of working and discovered I can turn on the date. Big thing I want to do is get Visual Studio Code working but getting errors trying to use the espruino module. But that's for another day.
And now, with 1.99, the app is working. Will upgrade to 2.x when it's safe again ...
This time I got the Bluelight and am installing 1.99. Persistence ... stay tuned to 2.4Ghz.
As much as I like the blame the hardware I realize that it's usually the user. But in this case, I'm out of ideas. And have to move on ...
