I'm not sure if Geeetech has removed code from the original marlin firmware...
I thaught it's caused because the original firmware simply uses an older version of marlin ;) .

Was trying to avoid going through the new Marlin firmware, Geeetech must have removed some stuff from the code. Ive built 2 printers from scratch so know the basics of setting up the configuration.h and all the other stuff that will need changing.
Thanks for explaning why it wouden't compile. Looks like I'm heading to Marlin website. That's 1/2 my evening gone lol
By the way its a Geeetech i3 Pro b with the 3d touch (pain in the ass to setup).
May put an inductive one on my self build when I upgrade it to E3D

Thanks for the help much appreciated
You mentioned that you want to upgrade to e3d... I bought an e3d clone from ebay (which arrived already). Do you already found a sensor mount?
Because I found two on thingiverse which dont't include a new x-carriage which I like.

Do you have found a better option? Are you going with bowden or direct drive?
