Was modified in 2.1.1, you need to change
metric = getConfig().isMetric;
metric = getControllerConfig().isMetric; // was getConfig().isMetric; before MySensors v2.1.1
Not sure. I do not have any RFM sensors, I tested the gateway for a little more than a week with a mock sensor and it was working. Maybe some logs could help?
You can also hook up the RFM shield to a regular arduino nano to do a serial gateway, this way you can check if it's radio dependent or not.
@LastSamurai Originally I designed it but since then it has been added to the official mysensors-kicad repo https://github.com/mysensors-kicad
Both regular SMD and PA+LNA SMD footprints and 3d shapes are verified to be working, I already used them quite a lot.
It should indeed "beep" between all the pins.
NRF modules are also very fragile, once incorrectly plugged they are usually definitively toasted. So even if you desoldered and then resoldered them correctly it is unlikely they will work correctly.
Yes you need the capacitor radio side, it's the only required component, everything else is optional. It don't have to be 4.7µF, anything between 4.7 and 47µF will do, as stated in the assembly instructions.
It should not get hot at all. The Wemos can get a few °C above room temperature but definitively not "hot as hell"
It happened to me once, when I had some solder joints between 2 pins of the NRF. You may want to test with a multimeter if, when the WeMos is unplugged, you have any shorts between adjacent pins.
A picture of the soldered board may help too.
Best way is to edit the example sketch by adding your Wifi credentials on it before uploading them.
@mfalkvidd right, I was thinking of updating RFM69 wiring diagrams on https://www.mysensors.org/view/171#rfm69-&-esp8266 , but for how the radio module go I was interested in the rfm96 range / reliability to see how it goes.
Anyway I will look for futures updates on the forum.
