hi all,

I have the new bullet R1 V2 roaster and really do enjoy using RoasTime V2 (RT2) but after the new release of Artisan 2.0 I am very intrigued in the analyzer tool that they implemented. it looks like a really useful way to understand and improve your heat/fan adjustments.

my issues is that it was pretty easy to switch between RT1 and artisan as they used the same UBS drivers. now with RT2, we all had to remove the original USB drivers else RT2 wouldn't work. that means that you can no longer use Artisan as it only supports the older version of the bullet V1/1.5/RoasTime 1.

people with the new version of the bullet will not have access to the old USB drivers so they wont really even know that can could have used Artisan which is shame. :(

so my questions is: :?:
has anyone out there come up with a way to connect their new Bullet V2 that is using RT2 with artisan? if so can you let me know how this was done so I can copy you. I will also pass on the info to the artisan team so they can add it to their documentation.

thanks

sam

I'm more or less in the same situation.I would prefer to use Artisan with my Bullet V2. I have the legacy drivers from Sweet Marias; Is this all we need understanding we won't be able to go back to Roastime 2? Roastime is pretty cool, but I like storing and retrieving locally from my machine.

Thanks

from my understanding you need to uninstall RT2 and then install the legacy drivers BUT I think you need to also install and set up RT1 so that the drivers are mapped/connected to the bullet correctly as well.

the reason I think this to be true is that last night I tried all but reinstalling RT1 and artisan was giving me an error saying something along the lines of the bullets port were not being recognized. so that is why I think you may need to install RT1 to make sure all the connections between the bullet and the computer are fully functional.

Apparently this is not possible without Aillio providing input/assistance etc.

PS I do agree the Analyzer helps you focus on certain events with more clarity.

This may not be your ideal and I don't know if it works with the newer Bullet software, but Artisan has an import for their profiles, so try importing one and then running Analyze on it.

Hope that helps.

so I have found a work around for windows and it allows you to install Aristan on a V1 and 1.5 bullet. V2 is still out of reach I think.

the steps are as follows

download and extract the legacy drivers
https://legacy.sweetmarias.com/library/ ... 1-support/
download the legacy RT1 (version 1 of roastime)
https://github.com/roastworld/roast-tim ... tag/v1.1.2

- uninstall Roastime2 (RT2) form you computer
- install the legacy driver while the bullet is connected to your computer and in the OFF status
- install RT1

now you have RT1 installed and the connections will allow you to open and run Artisan v2 as your roasting software for your bullet.

:D

That's great. Make sure you you get 2.1.2 and know that some great enhancements are coming in the next release including the autosave function.

EDIT - as of July 2020, there is 2.4 which has wonderful new features.

I linked to post six on the supported machine page. Still not sure if it works on a Mac. Maybe without the driver which is Windows only.

I've installed the legacy drivers and RT1 sees the roaster but Artisan 2 does not. I have a feeling it might be a COM port miss If that's how Artisan expects to connect...

Anybody got lucky ? Windows 10...

I managed to get it to work on my bullet v1.5 (IBTS) on a Windows 10 using virtual machine (vmware). I've only installed the legacy driver and the artisan and it works. I didn't have to install the roasttime. Hope this help.
