Unable to activate PiFace outputs

I have an existing project that uses a PiFace.

After updating FPP to version 6.0, I have some difficulties setting up the outputs.
On the "Other Outputs" page, I set the output type to GPIO and after that configure the outputs to "PiFace-1 (GPIO: 200)", "PiFace-2 (GPIO: 201)" etc.
But when I go to save the settings and restart the FPP deamon, the deamon doesn't restart and I when I go to the status page, I get an error saying so.
When I try to go back to the Other Outputs page, I get an error message that says "Unable to retrieve GPIO pin info".
Only when I refresh the page and deactivate the outputs, the deamon starts running again.

What am I doing wrong? Any help will be greatly appreciated!


I've not been able to make my piface work in FPP's more recent versions over the past few years.  Let me know if you ever get it going.


I've tried running an older version of FPP on my Raspberry Pi (FPP 1,8), but when I try to run the sequence it stops the deamon also. Older sequences run fine (including activating the PiFace outputs). I guess the files the current version of Xlights creates, don't work wit FPP 1.8?


just set xlights to produce v1 fseq files for very old fpp versions


I tried that, but got the same problem as when I tried it in FPP V6.0
I installed FPP V1.8 onto the Pi. Older programs that were still on the USB stick worked, but the new sequence I made in Xlights 2022.23 and saved as an old Xlights sequence wouldn't start (and brought the deamon to a halt)

Support FPP
