So I just recently got a MKS GEN L board to replace my stock HICTOP 3DP-08 board. (I think it was a problem with the thermistor resistors.)
I was able to load the stock firmware. Everything was hooked up properly (I think). Didn't realize I needed separate stepper drivers, as they were integrated in the stock board. But thanks to this forum, I realized I needed some and got some A4988 for X,Y,Z and extruder and hooked them up.
My problem is that X and Y home but Z does not. (Z is dual motor into 1 socket). I can trigger the Z end stop, which allows movement of X and Y. Both Z motors are plugged in as far as I know. When I get a chance, I'm going to try one of the drivers that I know work and see if that makes a difference. I'm also going to try loading Marlin 1.1.9 and see if that changes anything.
Any thoughts would be helpful. I'll update when I get a chance.
Thanks.

Edit: So I swapped one of the known working stepper drivers for the Z axis. It works now! I'm not sure if maybe I didn't have it seated properly or something, but all stepper motors work. We'll see if anything happens when I flash Marlin onto the printer. (Fingers crossed)
