The main page hosting the application includes presets for changing the cluster message, including Vauxhall/Pontiac/Holden/etc messages.

open [COM_PORT] where [COM_PORT] is your cable's port. I.E. COM5

Read a table:
read [table_num] where table is a number from 0 to 9

Use a preset:
preset custom-text=1337vend

Type help for a listing of commands.

[incar-cluster]$ listports

Is anyone still using the old OSE Enhanced Flash Tool to update the cluster controls? Coupled with the spreadsheet used to generate the instruction HEX for the cluster I'm still having good luck using this update method.

I've got those files saved but haven't messed with them.
Personally, after I got things set the way I like with the VZcm presets, I haven't touched the cluster in years. Still got the cable though.

I was thinking of resetting my redline/shift indicator points and maybe the welcome message and dug out my old laptop that has these programs on it. My "modern" computer is a desktop so I've kept that old laptop (glorified netbook really) around. After it updated the virus protection for about an hour it was up and running and doing just fine. Not as speedy as my desktop, but a whole lot faster than my even older netbook which can barely even function nowadays after I loaded Win10 onto it. Should have left it on Win7. Wish I could find a way to revert it back and see if that would help.

ANYWAY, I tried to get the VZcm program to work and I didn't have success. The old OSE and spreadsheet tool just make it all work so well a dork like me can have success with it. The only problem I ever had with OSE was finding the right speeds and settings to connect to the cluster on a regular basis. Most of the time I just go with the suggested settings and try it again and again until it connects. Connects about 1 time in 15-20 tries, but it usually works eventually.

I'm using VZcm with my new Acer laptop with WIN 10 pro 64 bit. Works just fine. Went and made a few tweaks the other day without any issues

VZcm is pretty dang easy to use.

I made up my own custom coolant temp scale a few months ago too. I hated how our temp gauge (even with the revised settings) doesn’t move till 140°.

Decided to make a custom scale that would move the needle off cold at 100°, and move linear all the way up to 240°.

It’s so much nicer having a true coolant temp gauge now.

One mod I highly suggest you forgo is the gear indicator. It’s cool for about 10 minutes, then becomes nothing but an annoyance.

I haven't been able to get it to work since my old laptop died. Not much help on here anymore sadly.
