I’m curious as to if there’s anyone that’s had any success with the Osepp Motor & Servo Shield working on a ChipKit Pi. By the company’s account it’s compatible with the adafruit motor shield v1 libraries, but I’ve been unsuccessful thus far in getting a single motor to even twitch. The code I've written compiles & uploads without any issues, the rig just sits there. Any suggestions are very welcome and encouraged!

That shield relies on PWM. I don't know off hand which pins on the ckPI are PWM by default, but I'll bet it's not the same as an Arduino. You may be able to get them routed right using the PPS facilities of the PIC32MX2 chip.
