  1. After fifteen years or so, I find it necessary to get out of this hobby for health reasons. I have a large selection of LOR AC, DC, and various other controllers/components that are looking for new homes. I am not trying to sell them, but they are being offered free with only one catch, you must pick them up as I will not ship. If you know of anyone that might be interested in trying out this hobby, this might be a chance for them to get into it for minimal cost. All of the AC controllers are first generation boards in boxes with pigtails attached. Probably have about 20 AC controllers, several DC controllers, pixel controllers, 12x50 pixel tree, 24x50 and 6x50 pixel matrices, etc. I am not offering these to someone wanting to resell them, but to hobbyists who want to expand or get into the hobby. I am located in Casa Grande, AZ, midway between Phoenix and Tucson. If interested, please message me above or email at circus4u at msn.com
  2. JR and James I would like to thank you for all of the sequences that you share with me (and everyone else) Your kindness is just above and beyond what anyone should except of you. Without your help and kindness I would not be able to have a show like I do. Especially the big Boy Scout show in the middle of April. For the other people reading this, these two GENTLEMEN put in so many hours making these sequences then SHARE them, not sell them to you and me just out of the kindness of their hearts. Once I get some video of the show I will post the links to it Thank You, Again YIS Marc Gerner Gernergang@gmail.com

  6. Ok here is an update.. Good news.. Finally got a working S5. Not sure if I like the new Layout, but at least I can see something and start learning this new system.. How did I fix my problem you ask?? I have been using LOR since 2008, not sure what version I started out with. Every update or new Version always gets dumped / installed in the same directory, up until a few days ago I have never actually done a "clean" install, nor have I done a "complete" registry clean out of any LOR software. This Morning I backed up only my stuff that I created. Uninstalled S5 and deleted any and all directories linked to LOR. then used the Light-O-Rama Registry Wiper tool, ( Thanks Alan for pointing me to this) Shut down the desktop, unplug the power for long time ( something I don't normally do) re-started the desktop and proceeded to do a fresh clean install of S5 to a new directory. Before I did anything else, opened up S5 Sequence editor and re-entered my registration number. Then proceeded to create a dummy preview and a dummy animation sequence. all appears to work. closed all files and imported my S4 visualizer file, then opened up an old S4 music sequence, software complained about items in the sequence that were not in the preview ( in the past I had different visualizers files for different section of my display, inside the house, right side of the yard outside, front of house outside, etc. etc.. ) started the play sequence all looks normal.. Many Thanks to Alan for his help.. I will close the helpdesk ticket..
  7. That large of a sheet of coroplast is going to be a huge wind load. A quick Google search found several windload calculators. I would start by determining what the windload will be based on the highest wind speed that can be expected. The wind load goes up at a squared function so it goes up very fast as the wind speed increases. As for structure, for my 48x48 inch Holiday Coro singing faces, I used 3/4 inch aluminum U channel. The Coro was attached to it with screws and 1.25 inch fender washers. I used the aluminum mainly for the weight savings. I can’t tell you how well it will hold up in wind because the faces did not get mounted on the roof as planned because I was running really late. That meant that the two faces just leaned up against the front of the house. Next year will get them onto the roof.

LODGING: there are many hotels in the area which can be found with a google search. Any hotels along I-40 or I-35 in central Oklahoma are in good. Hotels in Bricktown are good if also looking for something else to do during your visit to OKC. Bass Pro Shop is there too. FOOD: Food/snacks and such will be provided. This means we eat/munch at our own pace and spend more time on the fun stuff.  FOOD: If anyone wants to make a donation or bring food/snacks, please let me know. If you’re a chef, or just like cooking/smoking/baking, by all means bring your masterpiece. Strongly recommended: Bring your projects, thoughts, ideas and especially your humor. There has been great ideas shared and posted. I would like to see those ideas in person, along with everyone else who attends. There will be an overhead projector (or two) connected to a computer (or two) for any training/sharing or showing videos of our displays. Please bring your own laptop/computer/thumbdrive if you feel the need and maybe want assistance with setting up your channels/settings and such. A soldering station will be setup for those wanting to share/see/learn a little and maybe even build/repair a few things. I have controllers with triacs I’m wanting to replace and will attempt to do this during the mini. So what would you like to see/share??? DIY? RGB strips? Pixels? Arches? Mini Trees? Mega Tree? Snow Flakes? Pixel Editor? Superstar? Controllers? Transmitters? It's endless!!! (bring your stuff to show others). If you have items to swap/trade/sell, bring those too. As mentioned earlier, there is "no cost" to attend the Central Oklahoma-Mini. There is “no schedule” to keep up with once things get started. So show up when you can and stay for however long you can. LET'S DO THIS!!!!!!!!!
  10. Time Out! If he is talking about a Pixie - that is RS-485 - NOT Ethernet. All Pixie controllers are RS-485 only, and except for the Pixie 2D (I think), they are LOR protocol only.
  11. I am adding a mega tree (pixel) for 2019 displays. Does anyone have any sequences they could share? I would like to see how it is all done. Darude, Sandstorm type songs would be preferred. I truly appreciate it. michael@hillcountrygardener.com (please do not contact me with links to paid sites. I already know about them)
  12. Here is another excited person wanting the RGB fades and ramps!! Way to GO!!!
  13. YES YES YES!!! My day will be complete!
  14. Happy to note that my landscape show is running correctly on 5.2.4.
  15. Thanks. I will sit tight with S4 then.
  16. He was just in the forum activity list, hovering over the new guys avatar. No trickery.
  17. 👍 There are bad folk that take advantages of typos of commonly visited sites to purvey p0ron and other nasties. Bookmark sights you visit frequently. STAY SAFER, Typos on our part do happen.. SOME OF THE BAD SITES LOOK VERY CLOSE TO THE REAL ONE, EXCEPT THEY JUST GOT YOUR LOGON AND PASSWORD. That is why some banks have gone to a 2 step logon.
  18. I have several pro show time controllers for sale. These are the commercial ones in the metal boxes 16 channels. I am asking 179.00 + Shipping from 34212. They range from 4 to 6 years old and work perfectly. The box weighs 20 pounds and is 18 wide by 18 long and 9 high. John
  19. Yes. It's called RDS (Radio Data System). LOR does not directly control RDS, but it CAN write data to a file that another program uses to control the RDS data. It also requires that your transmitter have RDS capability.
  20. Earle, your shows will be missed, I for one looked forward to the videos every year. Your skills are second to none!
  21. After talking to you and Joel i know they went to a good home and will make things in NC a little brighter come Christmas time. It was a nice visit and I really enjoyed every minute of it. Thank You Earle
  22. I use big print program. I paid for 30$ for it. If you need an image converted to pdf on a certain scale then just message me and I will convert it for you for free. And free for anyone that needs it done.
  23. I was actually waiting for someone to ask how to get a mouse to cooperate and pull a string through pipe - cheese at the other end might work. Or drop a snake behind him. JR
  24. This is a great event with some great people for those that can attend. Wish I could attend unfortunately I have a full plate this year. JR
