  1. I'm going to start mailing you a cat turd every day until you get layering in...
  2. Nice. I really do not see a definitive shelf life on SS. With pixels getting more and more popular and the mega trees being such a common prop, SS is perfect for just that. I am pretty much XLights all the way except for my two mega trees, I prefer SS. Just like it a bit better. After the recent update IMO the only negative to SS is the lack of layering. It is still a great program.
  3. Brian, Not trying to stir the pot, just giving you an honest opinion here. It is reasons like this that other programs are getting so popular. If there is a problem or huge demand for something, it gets fixed in a week or so. I love SS and will continue to use it because I am so familiar with it but people have been asking for the layering ability for at the very least a couple of years and the response is always the same, 'hopefully next year'.

I'd love to post pictures but they make it entirely too complicated to do that on this board. Every picture I try to post says it is too large no matter how small I make it.
  6. Bran, Any news on getting the 'layer' conundrum solved that has been so heavily requested?
  7. First year running a 12CCR tree and I have all 12 running on one high speed 485 USB adapter. At times I notice an ever so slight bit of lag, not something anyone besides myself would likely notice. Think that would be cleared up if I ran a second high speed adapter, one for 1-6 and the second for 7-12?
  8. Posting this fix just in case anyone else is having this issue. Of the 16 controllers, 13 of them were the current gen3 and the 3 that were not working were the older V2 board. I had the network setting at 500k and the V2 boards cannot operate above 115k. Changed the network speed to 115k and its all working like a charm.
  9. Another update that I just saw. All three of the controllers that I am having issue with are running CTB16PC Ver.-4.40 The other 11 that work fine are 16PC-G3 Ver-1.06 Do I have a firmware issue? I went on the LOR website and 4.40 is the latest firmware for the V2 boards. I have opened a trouble ticket but have always had such great luck with help on these boards that I figured this couldn't hurt.
  10. Just got home and tried that. No worky. One controller I was having issue with was #11 and the one next to it, #12 was working fine. I swapped their ID's and the problem followed to the original controller now numbered #12. It is happening on 3 of my 16 controllers (11, 13 and 14). The rest work fine and I have run the verifier with no issues other than the 12 CCR tree channels not working because I do not have them programmed in my test sequence. Like I said, I can individually access these three controllers through the HU and they operate just fine, but they refuse to operate in a normal sequence. Since the data is flowing in and out I would assume that my cables are fine but I will try that next just to be sure. Thanks again and if anyone has anything else for me to try I am all ears!
  11. Advanced. Should be enough for 16 controllers and 12 CCR's.
  12. Channel configurations are fine. It just doesn't make any sense. They are located with the HU and work just fine when testing with the HU, but they refuse to operate in a sequence with the same configuration.
  13. Quick rundown: I have (16) standard PC16 LOR controllers. In the HU it can find all 16 and I can test them all. But when I play a sequence, #'s 11, 13 and 14 do not activate. I have specifically tested these three in the HU and even reassigned their ID's to them but they still will not work in a sequence. Any ideas?
  14. Sent. And thanks for the kind words all. I am updating the files as I fine tune them. I take the train and have time to sit and tweak them.
  15. Bill, mcha and MEGA are hitting the nail on the head. As you grow you can slowly phase out your incans for LED. Do yourself a favor and hide a couple hundred bucks that the wife won't know about for the day after Christmas. December 26th be a man on a mission hitting every store that sold lights. I personally have had GREAT luck at drugstores like Walgreens and CVS.
  16. You sir are awesome. I went into the clickpad settings and it had every setting under the sun (two finger tap, two finger click, three finger, four finger, two finger wide, etc.). I removed all of them except for the essential/every day ones and the problem disappeared. Still not sure what specific action that I was doing but whatever I was doing was getting translated in SS to 'fill all'. Thank you!
  17. Brian, I gotcha on the Ctrl + left/right click but the original problem that I am having is still occurring and I am no where near the CTRL button when this happens. I will have one/two fingers on the touchpad and BOOM, everything is filled and the image that I am creating is gone.
  18. It is not the double click. I can double click all day and nothing happens. I have actually tried to duplicate the problem so that I know what I am doing to trigger this action but I'll be damned if I can duplicate it. Another question, maybe I can work backwards. What keyboard/mouse action would I need to do to select and fill all on the grid?
  19. I run SS on a laptop with a touchpad and am occasionally and unknowingly triggering what I can only describe as a 'shortcut'. When in image mode I will be creating something and while dragging and drawing something and then BOOM, the entire grid will change to whatever color I am using thus deleting the image I was creating. First I would like to know what it is that I am unknowingly doing to trigger this. Second I would like to know how to disable this. Anyone have this happen?
  20. All, on this board I've noticed that there are not a whole lot of sharing of 12/16 CCR sequences. I know that I'm grateful for the few that have sent me sequences to help me out (Ron Boyd rocks). In an effort to get some 12/16 CCR sequence sharing going, I will be the first to offer mine up to any that want them. I've made the following sequences if anyone wants them. 12 Days of Christmas (Straight No Chaser, trimmed version) Carol of the bells (August Burns Red) Winter Wonderland (August Burns Red) Hippopotamus for Christmas (Gretchen Wilson) Lucy and Linus (The Peanuts song) Minions "Banana" bumper Oi to the World (No Doubt) Grace bumper (Aunt Bethany Christmas Vacation) Christmas is Coming (Muppets) I've got others that I've made but I don't feel right sharing them. I've bought a few and copied effects from their sequences to fit a different song so those are more or less "assembled" by me. I don't want to take credit for someone else's work. My sequences are not nearly their caliber, but hey, I'm giving them away.
