        Thank you for posting this. it's always good to have the newest version with all the bugs fixed. Now, this "Joel3.1" profile bugs me. My name is Joel, and I wouldn't use that profile for my bike. Not with what I know now. I think PAS speed limits feel arbitrary and wrong. I'm working on a new profile I like to call "Limitless". The speed limit is as high as it can go, all PAS settings are only limited by current, not speed. The work mode is set to "Undeterminated". PAS ramp up is slow, Power ramp ups start at 1%, to prevent shocking the clutch, freewheel, and drive train. I'll attach that profile to my next post for anyone to examine and use.

        Jasdidit In regards to the Joel3.1 profile, the is what a buddy of mine set his bike for after 3 days of rides and changes. One thing I have found is everybody has there own style for a bike and profile settings. I have build 9 e-bike and fix many more for people and everyone one of them are unique to that person. Feel free to remove that profile if it is not to your liking and I update the zip file with it removed. Thank you for your opinion.

      Does the source rely heavily on Windows specific dlls for internal functionality, or just the GUI stuff?

      If it's not too tied-up internally it might be worth a look-see about an Mac OS port. I would have some serious rust on XCode work to knock off, but have some ability with a keyboard.

        Enkii It is developed in Delphi. If you want to try you might be able to recompile it in Mac OS. Since I do not have a Mac I was unable to try. PM me if you want to discuss.

        That would be awesome if you could port it to mac.

        Zoiks! I haven't touched Pascal since 1983, lol. And its not looking like there is anything like a one or even two step port process, the list of typically used frameworks and conversions is long and distinguished, several done on the Windows side before even getting close enough to jump to Mac. Admittedly that's a only half hour of investigation, but other than "code" being involved, everything totally misses an overlap with me. And there were more than one ~rewrite it from scratch~ comments to other folks asking about porting Delphi developed apps to Mac OS native.

        That sucks but it doesn't look like a side project that will finish any faster then Dwarf Fortress will if I pick it up. Off to configure a VM to see if I can eventually go that route with the Win software, sorry if I got anyones hopes up unnecessarily.

      This stuff run on WinXP? Never seems to be addressed but I still keep an old XP lappy for Infineon controllers and a few other things so if Bafang software runs on XP and able to find drivers, I'd love to give this a go.

        Or a tablet? That's what I'm waiting for. I know, my beard will be 3 feet longer by then...

        Run WINE on MB for EXE's....

        Thanks, MichaelT, for that tip! I went and looked at the process involved in loading and setting up Wine (https://www.davidbaumgold.com/tutorials/wine-mac/). I'm afraid that is WAY above my "computer skills comfort level". I like to keep my computer stuff simple and easy to understand - "point & click". In MY case, it will be safer to simply buy another cheap used Windows laptop.

      I installed Linux Mint / wine on and Asus laptop, to see what Linux is like compared to Windoze. I got the software to load, but could not figure out what "port" the programming cable was on. Having zero knowledge of Linux, I gave up and brought both bikes in the house to reprogram my BBSHDs. Good thing the bikes were clean (new), and yard was dry. :)

        Don't know if this is the place to post this or not. Haven't programmed before. I had a hot rod programmed BBSHD. PAS 0 100% throttle. It was a variable almost linear throttle from the start. Mostly used that as a PAS depending on what crank gear I was using. Was going to lower PAS strength. Never did but it needed it. Now I have a ludicrous, and it must have come with stock programming. PAS 0, no throttle . PAS 1, throttle only to the level of current at that PAS. And so on up to PAS 9. If you want any decent throttle you have to leave it in a higher PAS level. And throttle is no way as linear as BBSHD program. It sometimes starts a little at the beginning, then a dead spot, then throttle near full throttle area. I think I can get a little less than full throttle engagement, just before I hit full throttle. Not used to running high level of PAS. Run in PAS 0. get rudely reminded every time I touch the pedals. I need to program this to full ludicrous mode. And I would definitely like a variable throttle to 100% in PAS 0. Never have programmed. Read the post above. Think I can do it, but have no clue as what to program for Ludicrous mode. Is that one of the options in the above program? Thanks in advance for any help given.

          IMHO, "programing" Bafang controllers a misnomer and excessively techie. I think people would be more comfortable with the phrase "changing settings", as that is what we are doing. People who create software are programmers.

          I am a throttle only rider, PAS set to 0. Here is a screen capture of the settings I use to get a smooth variable throttle.

          The first requirement to changing the settings is to get a special cable that plugs in to computer and Bafang harness from your favorite Bafang retailer. Then download the software from the link in the first post of this thread.

          After downloading the software, click file, then load, that will bring up a selection of profiles. I figured out it is possible to have multiple instances of the software running, so I can view settings in my controller, and compare settings in a different profile. I allow one instance of the program to connect to the controller, and leave the other one disconnected. I've had up to 4 instances of the software running at the same time.

          For peeps having issues getting their computer to recognize the cable, here is a link from cajk for drivers to fix the issue.

            Having some issues with the program, I can only see about 3/4 of the window. Any way to re-size it? I tried changing the screen resolution but that didn't help and the Size options are grayed out.

              Have you tried Display setting, Make Text And Other Items Larger Or Smaller?
              Or right click bafangconfigtool.exe go to properties/compatibility/settings/DPI and change
