  1. Please create a ticket with the help desk. Please attach your show file (.LSS), your shutdown sequence (LOREDIT), and a screen shot of the LOR tab of Network Preferences. Also please specify in the ticket which channels are being left on. http://helpdesk.lightorama.com/ Thanks, Matt

    Disapointed in playback of new Tree

    Resolved via the help desk.

    Hung Show

    Which program did you use to create the show (Show Editor, Simple Show Builder, or Hub)? Is the older controller with lights still on attached to the "non-enhanced" network? Matt

    Pixel Tree configuration

    Actually the Pixel Tree kit is easier to set up in S5 than it is in S4. In S4, follow these instructions: http://www1.lightorama.com/PDF/PEwithPixelTree16x25-RevA.pdf In S5: Open your preview. Previews are described here: http://www1.lightorama.com/downloads/5.2.2/help/concept_preview.htm Click "Add Item" http://www1.lightorama.com/downloads/5.2.2/help/design_tab.htm Quoting from that help page: Light-O-Rama props (online) This option will allow you to import props for items sold in the Light-O-Rama store, such as pixel trees and singing faces. It is recommended that you have internet access when using this option so that you see the latest available content (content will likely change over time). You should review the channel assignments on any imported props to make sure they match your controllers.

    One sequence will not run during show

    Glad you got it fixed. I tested with sequences named "Baby, It's cold outside", "Baby It's cold outside", and "Baby, Its cold outside". As the log below shows, all 3 names were played by the Show Player. So maybe there was another character in the file name? Perhaps one of the other "Single Quote-like Characters" noted on this page: https://www.cs.sfu.ca/~ggbaker/reference/characters/ ?

    "Favorite" Missing

    Jim, Please create a ticket with the LOR help desk and attach a zipped up copy of your "\Light-O-Rama\CommonData\LORFavorites.xml" file. http://helpdesk.lightorama.com/ Thanks, Matt

    PE effects for line elements/arches

    Create a preview with some arches in it. Then open the Effect Generator, set your preview and prop, then have fun with all of the controls. The Effect Generator is your playground! For arches and rooflines, look for effects that move left and right. Matt

    Hung Show

    Sorry, I didn't mean to suggest that. It is safer with it enabled. Matt

    Do you have "Show Player Memory Restarts" enabled? http://www1.lightorama.com/downloads/5.2.2/help/control_panel.htm Matt

    What model of controller? What firmware version? Is the network running enhanced? What speed? Matt

    LOR Scheduler Application

    Thanks for the feedback! I've made note of it for our 2019 development work. Matt

    Animation Sequence will not preview

    Good suggestion! This is what it will look like in the next release:
  14. 1) Make sure your Com port is set in Network Preferences: http://www1.lightorama.com/downloads/5.2.2/help/network_preferences2.htm 2) Make sure the LOR Control Panel is running (red light icon in the system tray): http://www1.lightorama.com/downloads/5.2.2/help/control_panel.htm 3) Enable Control Lights in the Sequencer: http://www1.lightorama.com/downloads/5.2.2/help/control_lights.htm If it still doesn't work, the unit id in your Prop Definition doesn't match the setting you see in the Hardware Utility. Matt
