  1. Not quite what you're after but the only thing I can think of is to use the Effect Step On and set the offset to Random. You might need to wind up the speed a bit. This doesn't do all the things you want but might be a start? Talking rubbish again!
  2. This is me from a normal window...
  3. Test from iPhone chrome incognito tab.
  4. The manpage for the USB Creator says that method doesn't work on FLX S. FLX S came out after that legacy update procedure ended. The ZerOS version number should show in the bottom right of the internal screen at startup, and under the Z button.
  5. Forum is still pretty messed up. I can post on occasion then immediately after I can’t edit or post again.
  6. Setup->Load Can’t see you’d have 7.7 on S24, desk wasn’t out at that version. Must be at least 7.9. My FLX is older and that came with 7.8.4.
  7. This thing keeps going down and keeps losing my posts, so I'm having one last try then I'm giving up until it gets more stable!
  8. Nah it's dead again.
  9. Did you manage to get the debug report onto a USB stick? If you haven't already, I'd attach it here or email in to support@zero88.com (with a covering note) so Edward can take a look at it.
  10. OK it works. Glad it's back! Phew!
  11. Let's see if this post works... Edward says their "new" IT has had a lot of server issues.
  12. So combining this with Edward's answer sounds like you need: A "first Q" A following "Auto With" cue with a Delay "a number of seconds" To allow them to overlap properly and only control "their own" fixtures you'll almost certainly need to be in Tracking and use SmartTag or your own careful tagging to make sure you only record what you need in each cue - the "Auto With" one being the most critical.
  13. We’ll there should be ‘nothing to know’ really - the fixture should just work for colour and intensity like any other. Sounds a bit like the fixture profile is wrong for the actual device, like the DMX channels are mixed up. If you have the opportunity I’d patch a bunch of 1-channel dimmers from the base address of one of your x-Bricks and see what each channel does. List what you find here and with your show file Edward should be able to decode what the fixture profile says versus what you found from a channel-by-channel analysis.
  14. If you can upload your showfile here, I'm sure Edward will take a look at what's going on with that fixture. Is there anything weird about it like it doesn't have an intensity channel (as such, not as e.g. a beam parameter). Also let us know if you're in Tracking and whether SmartTag is enabled.
  15. No, just one. Otherwise you will double-terminate - the two 120 ohm resistors will be in parallel resulting in a 60 ohm termination which is the incorrect termination for a 120 ohm transmission line.
  16. Retirez toutes les clés USB. Quelle version de ZerOS ? Avez-vous changé quelque chose récemment (matériel/logiciel) qui aurait pu déclencher les problèmes ? Remove any USB sticks. What ZerOS version? Did you change anything recently (hardware / software) that may have triggered the problems?
  17. Ed, record here the versions of ZerOS / ZerOS Monitor you're using and seeing the problems with, it's the first thing Edward will need to know before he can help you.
  18. To elaborate on the discussion above (and hopefully not confuse you more). If I'm reading this correctly, then maybe you can programme two Playbacks, one for each of the positions you want to manually "fade" to. As Edward says above, you need to record the final position of the mover for each required "cue". With the fader configured as "Controls Position" then you won't need to separately control pan and tilt on separate playbacks. So if you record (say) Playback 1 with the mover positioned at "stage steps" and Playback 2 with the mover positioned at "foyer exit" then the respective playback should be usable for you to manually "fade" the position from where-ever the mover currently is, to that respective "final" position (for both pan and tilt) per the playback. Whether the mover will track along a path of your liking is to be discovered, but I don't think you would have a good time with a playback being "pan" and one being "tilt" if that was your original thought (you could do this but you would also need to configure "Parameter Separate" for Position as by default, if you move Pan then Tilt will also get tagged and hence recorded - sorry if this bit makes no sense, I just wanted to confirm you could do that, but it requires a change to the desk default setup). I hope that helps!
  19. You can't assign the Grand Master function to a MFF in Channel mode, the MFFs need to be in Playbacks mode. In Channel mode, fader 24 will always be the intensity/trigger for fixture 24. The way to configure an MFF in Playbacks mode is "Setup + Playback button" (then select Grand Master), noting that the Playback needs to be unprogrammed to get those options.
  20. I think Setup on a playback has a ‘fader controls…’ setting you can set to Position. There will be some examples somewhere on Fader Controls… Colour, which should be translatable into similar for Position. Youll have to record just Position info for your fixture to a Playback by turning off SmartTag when you record it.

    It’s not here. Work the rest out yourself
  22. That just means when you turn off the console you don't lose your programming. Either the Solution has a battery-backed RAM area or it has some non-volatile Flash or EEPROM that it updates from volatile working memory. So what I'm saying is, that "save" is just non-volatile working memory, not a "backup" that you can recover. Basically if you don't have your show saved to USB stick (I think that's the medium used by Solution), then you've lost it and will need to reprogramme the cues from scratch. Sorry Sounds like you need to save to USB stick more incrementally so you have an earlier state to go back to. When programming I usually save at key points (i.e. when I have chance!), <show>_tech<n> or <show>_dress<n> etc where <n> is 1,2,3,... etc so I have a chronological sequence of states I can go back to. The "final" show I save to two USB sticks, one that I leave with the console, one I take away from me (and try to remember to upload to the computer at home!). Kevin
  23. Nope (although you don't say which "board", but I don't think it matters). Hope you have it saved on USB stick...
  24. Hi Eric, I've had a good experience with 7.13 on FLX. I posted some comments on the Beta forum if you have access to that. The main takeaway seems to be that regarding the library compatibility it's better to start "fresh" on 7.13 if possible rather than load an old show. Having said that, if you tend to use the official library fixtures then Edward can recommend the fixture update process. Regards, Kevin
