  1. Did the same here, Month to set up. 6 hrs to tare down, lol. what part of ohio? im in Toledo
  2. And in that case WinRAR does it all.
  3. You are correct, LOR Built!!!!!!. Price drops 20 to 30 bucks if LOR didn't build it. Also remember if you do not buy from LOR, no warranty.
  4. V1 = 125 max V2 = 175 max V3 = 225 max Now these prices are for used not new Now some people list for more in hopes to get more but in all reality this is all they are worth. Good luck mate
  5. This is also true for me. Although I started in 2011. And had to take a year off in 2018. Lights back on in 2019. My first year I didnt get much response, ie traffic. how ever each year I did this more and more people came. I dont get many people where I live but word does travel fast. in 2017 my average was about 2 - 300 cars a season, I do three shows a year. The thank you's and the smiles were all worth it. I took a year off and when I came back on this year I was not getting the response that I was use to and even thought just like you, Should I just give up? are people just into it anymore? I was just down about it all. Let me tell you a story of what just changed my mind. About three days ago I was sitting on my porch watching how many people were coming by to see the show. I sat out there for 2 hrs and had only 1 car come by. Feeling down and not wanting to see anymore I went in for a shower. When I came out, my wife came up to me and told me that I had a couple visitors come by, I just figured, ok a couple more, thats cool but it didnt lift my spirits any. What my wife didnt tell me is that she told these 2 visitors to come back the next night. Well the next night, again I was sitting on my porch counting cars and yup I counted then all on 1 hand. Well I was about to go in and all of a sudden here comes about 4 cars, 2 parked on the side of my home, 1 in front and 1 pulled into my drive. This one, 2 kids got out, age, 1 was 6 and the other was 7, these two ran up to my and gave me a big hug, said thank you to me and gave me 2 PKG's of cookies. They were all smiles. They told me that they missed me last year and was hoping that I was running my lights this year. I talked to there mom and dad and they told me that they drive quite a ways to come see my show. That there mom use to live in the park that I do and that is how they knew about my shows. This was a AWESOME KIcker to me and allowed me to remember why I started and do this show. Its not the money or donations or how much I spend on my show but in fact it is the memories that I give to the kids and to the families that come and see it. This is why I do this. These 2 kids, not knowing what they did to me saved my shows. I promised them I will keep going and that I hope to see them next year. I also requested a favor from them. I asked them for a new theme for my show next year and to come up with 2 songs each and I will make it happen. Last night they came back over and gave me there list. So you see, its not the number of cars that come by, or how much I make in donations but in fact for the few that do come by I make memories that are priceless and last a lifetime. Dont give up yet, it is only your first year. Give it some time, the word will get out and my bet is in a couple of years you will be asking how some of us do traffic control because of the amount of cars that come by.

  9. Ok version is 4.0.04 advance and that's the thing, my show is playing now and as long as I don't fullscreen it, it plays fine, no hiccups but when I full screen the lor player after song played it will lag then freeze. I have to shut show down and restart
  10. Ok ran a test show and if I play the sequence in SE everything works fine have to fill screen then when I put the show together in builder and scheduler and my show turns on the first sequence will play. I have to fullscreen it but it plays now when going to second song it will lag then freeze. Am I doing something wrong? I've tried starting over and same results. Now if I don't enlarge the screen then the show will play fine. I'm puzzled.
  11. Sorry, I've been out of the game for 2 years now, And this will be my first year back, I doubled up on my controllers and running video for my comeback. I've never run video before but upgraded my license to advance with the intent of adding more. Figured this out by accident, just started with mp4 file and it plays fine so now all my sequences with video are mp4, and I go from 2 monitors, spent monies for a 3rd on a controller, lol OK now this is where my ( stupid ) question is. Being that I have only run lights in a BPlus license level I have never tried to run the video. Now I know, in sequence editor I get the screen and can full size it, ( I keep it small so I can watch while I sequence ), but, My question, When I set up my show in show editor and scheduler and my show starts, the video will automatically play along with the sequences, correct? and if so, will I have to full screen it at the beginning of every show? BTW Thank you for your help Dennis
  12. I know it sounds stupid but so I understand correctly default. Video added in sequence editor, sequenced lights to video. Add LOR file along with video to show editor and when my show starts to play the video will play on my show laptop, I just need to plug in my projector via HDMI, duplicate my laptop screen and wala, I have video in my yard? no other setting or things to do with LOR. ?
  13. Ok I have a question about all of this. I have been wanting to do this for some time now, So this is what I did. I am asking here because I could not find anywhere else here with the same question. Hope someone can help. Ok, bought projector, and 60 ft of HDMI cable, Got the videos I want to show, Sequenced my lights to the video by adding the video to sequence editor, ( get small screen of video as I sequence ) when done I save LOR files and video to same folder. Now setting up show editor. I know how to set up my normal show but video? this is new. so my question is do I do anything different? or when I set up my show, do everything like I normally do and when my show starts, a screen will appear on my show laptop displaying the video,Like in the sequence editor, enlarge the video screen, and the HDMI cable will run from laptop to projector to show the video I sequence to? BTW power to projector will be on a separate timer set for 5 mins before my show actually starts to warm up and turn off 5 mins after my show ends for the night. Please let me know if this is correct and if not, what do I do? thank you in advance Dennis
