  1. Hi All! I hope everyone is staying safe during this crazy time. I have 2 16 channel controllers that I used with regular LED light strings. I want to get into doing the pixel lights, but I have no idea where to start or even if I need different controllers. If I wanted to ad a spiral tree to my display and use the pixel lights, what would I need to do, aside from buying the pixel light ribbons? Do I need a different type of controller? I also have 1 signing face, which made my life a total and complete nightmare last xmas, I ended up having to purchase sequences for the face, which wasn't the same songs I had already made sequences for, so .. Nightmare every single night and lost about 30 days of lights on time. I am really hoping that someone will take me under their wing and help me learn how to do this better. I have the S5 software, but I don't like it, so I use the S4 software. I used the S5 software on a different computer only for the signing face. I need help from step 1 and someone to basically hold my hand through it all. Maybe I can work side by side with someone as they are working on their own display so that person wont get behind on their own project.
  2. I didn't realize that LOR sold different kinds of 16 channel light controllers.
  3. can someone do a remote session with me? This is just crazy that I cannot get up and running
  4. I cannot set the second controller as #2. It will not detect it as a unit, only sees it when connected to box 1, but runs each channel from both boxes as the same channel
  5. THANKS, more investigation, I have 2 controllers, and for some reason it is being read as 1 single unit. The lights are coming on from box 2 and triggering the same channel on both boxes. Example, box 2 channel 6 is a ground light, and on box 1 channel 6 its part of my arch. So what ever I have on box 2 channel 6 is over powering box 1 channel6 and turning on as sequenced for box 2. hardware utility says found 1 unit. but when I test the lights in utility, they cycle through correctly. what am I doing wrong?
  6. I guess I should have updated the status on this issue. I was never able to fix it. I had to move to a different computer, now I have completely different issues. I posted looking for help under the heading "nothing is working correctly"
  7. My channels are not playing the sequences in the correct order. I have unplugged them and retraced them twice, I know they are plugged into the right channel. When I run the hardware test, it runs through each channel correctly (the right light lights up when its supposed to) but when I run the sequence, its not even close to being the right order. I have even just set up a loop to have my arches jump, just to see if something is wrong with the sequence, but when I run the sequence in animation mode (no music) nothing comes on ( I added only the jumping arches to the sequence). when I copied and pasted the sequence into other channels, it worked but I don't know how it worked, because it was not how I had the channels set. However, it does play the face channels correctly, but that's al that plays in the correct order. anyone have any ideas? I have not been able to run a single show yet.
  8. well I cant upload any more pictures here I guess.
  9. ok you were right, reinstalling changed nothing. Its telling me that "shows cannot be enabled because the comm port is already open. If the utility hardware is running, shut it down then enable shows." Well, as far as I can see, Utility Hardware is NOT running anywhere. My control panel indicator light is BLUE, the enable schedule tab is greyed out (cannot click it). I click on "disable shows immediately" and nothing happens. LightORama status says "connected to COMM Listener" . When I run network config, it now looks way different then before I reinstalled. I tried to add the picture here but it says I cant. I will post picture in the next post below.
  10. I am trying to tell you that I have NOTHING running. I am not running the utility or anything else, the only thing that is on is the LOR control panel and that Comm port listener that keeps giving me the errors I posted above I am going to try to reinstall
  11. My light bulb is red, and I cannot enable schedule, its greyed out (not clickable) and I get this error . see screen shots below
  12. so tell me how do I run my show when I cant run anything with this port open and if I close control panel the port listener does close, but as you said I cant run shows without control panel
  13. Ok so I am trying to get this up and running, BUT I keep getting an error that says Port is already in use by Light-O-Rama\LORCommListener.exe. I cannot end it. I close out of it, and it just starts right back up, I shut down and restarted my computer, I unplugged from computer and this LOR COMM listener.exe will not stop running! I cannot close the LOR control panel either. I changed ports, but its still picking it up on that same port. Can someone assist?
  14. FYI I got several emails from someone named Cagimobilepier, the person keeps sending the same email with subject line "singing face sequence" in the body of the email it says "sorry for the delay" My virus software has flagged it as a virus before I even tried to open it. (Thank God!) Maybe we shouldn't be listing our email addresses in the body of our requests? maybe have a way to share files from the forum? IDK, but I wanted to let everyone know about this so you could be aware of this!
  15. Thank you for sharing that. I will watch again after work. Did it tell me how to copy and paste from S5 into S4? or am I missing something? I have S5, but I like to use S4, its easier for me.
  16. (other than JrDibbler) Hi all I can share the sequences I have for 32 channels with 2 arches (getting a drop box for easier sharing). I just cannot figure out how to use the automatic singing faces effects in SS/S5. If anyone has sequences for 1 singing face, I could sure use the help. Or if by chance anyone has the time to remote in with me, to show me how to use this automatic sequencer, that would be perfect! My sequences were all done in the S4 software, and S5 is like a foreign language to me. Is it even possible to create the sequences for the face in S5 and then copy and paste into the sequences I have already in S4?
  17. I am going to get a drop box and share the link. sorry if I haven't sent the email to some of you yet. I work 2 jobs, and trying to learn this software to add 1 singing face into my sequences, and having a hell of a time with it.
  18. Can you believe that a member here, refused to share sequences with me, just because I wrote my request in caps? lol I sent the files to you check your email
  19. I have sent the files to those who asked. Enjoy
  20. Hi all, I am pretty new to all of this Light o rama stuff, but I do have sequences that I have made this year and last that I am willing to share at no cost. My sequences include 2 - 4 channel arches. I use 32 channels, but if you only have 16, they will still work. It could help you save some time. I do not have sequences for faces, yet. However I did purchase the superstar that has the automatic sequencing for faces, so I may have some updates right before Thanksgiving that will include the 1 face. Leave your email or shoot me a PM and I will send you what I have. Feel free to use them, change them, redesign them, do whatever you would like to do with them, is fine with me, I am giving them for free.
  21. "I would like a copy sent to insert str8upgirl@gmail.com" "I agree to not sell or share this sequence with anyone. This request will be used for my private, personal use on my show only. I also understand the mere fact of making changes to the borrowed sequence and pasting it in to my sequence does not make it mine to share".
  22. will these work with faces done with regular LED lights? I would like a copy please, if so. Thanks! str8upgirl@gmail.com "I agree to not sell or share this sequence with anyone.

  23. would love a copy please. thank you. str8upgirl@gmail.com
