    Saw it myself and was sooo sad. Thomas and Dave have been SUPER good for the DSM community and I am just about SICK from them getting burned to the tune of 14k. Thanks for the news. Time for a Go Fund Me page????

    I don't even have link but I'd donate in hopes they would go for the latter option of full steam ahead on a modern chipset.. it sucks they lost out on that much money :(

    Definitely will donate for sure if one gets started. This is tragic news, but remember everything happens for a reason and hopefully something good will come out of this. Thank you Thomas Dorris and all involved for your hard work and dedication.

    I suggested the same in the thread on Facebook after I read this early in the a.m, I am sure the community would chip in to get V4 off of the ground..

    Omg this is like Armageddon for the DSMlink fans LOL. I still don't get why they never ported their v3 software over to the H8 ecu maybe that will happen now?

    Several years back I ran into them at the shootout and asked them why they had not gotten into the flash based ecu since its much much better and faster technology and what I got from them was that there was no money to be had from the flash based stuff since the cat was already out of the bag on it and the software was shareware basically and not enough people would be willing to pay for something that could be had for free.

    yea I get the argument but I just don't think it's reality. If they just used the darn tactix cable and ported the software 95% of DSMers would STILL buy the tuning solution for the ease of use and support network it makes no sense to me.

    Unfortunately ms3 looks like a more likely reality for me in future endeavors. I love the ecmlink platform given my infancy, but it's great to learn with the knowledge base available. I'd hate to see it die out suddenly...

    I dont disagree with you, especially if they were just selling the software and support for under $200 or so, otherwise the majority of work has been done for them.

    C'mon V4 or an H8 compatible version!

    I'd definitely buy standalone DSMlink software for an H8 ECU!

    I would like to second this question... Why?

    I have a few friends using ms3 (one using pro) and it is an amazing ecu for the money. Not that ecmlink is bad at all, I'm certainly impressed with it, but the features from ms3 are mountainous.

    Perhaps if Tom can work things out and v4 has some really good stuff (I'm sure it would) then I wouldn't bother, but I'm planning some significant changes over the next couple years, and ms3 would better suit the plan at this particular point in time.

    Either way, I'm glad Tom and crew are working on things and it sounds like they'll be able to make stuff work!

    Not to keep polluting the thread but, https://www.facebook.com/MegaSquirtSux/ There's lots of hardware and software issues. Seems that the users are typically the beta testers. It's not very robust against noise. Easy to make a mistake and burn up the board.

    A big one from me is when it started it was a open source type project where there was no licensing issues as long as you were not trying to use it commercially. B&G learned a lot off the backs of their customers, and then tried to license everything and make it a commercial solution.

    It's really a "nice" science project in a box, not a professional EMS. Yeah they will work, but the control algorythms suck, they are buggy, and have no where near the testing and robustness that ecm link has, and that's just the software. The electronics side is just atrocious.

    For the casual dsm user ecmlink is great and really can't be beat. In the absense of ecmlink, I defer to an ostrich and tunerpro. It's 90% of the functionality of ecmlink without the fancy GUI.
