    nobody's actually - in - NJ... they leave as soon as they can walk P-) I suggest tho, you put your town/city in your location so others may know where you arrre and be able to help. TJ (Jack Sparrow... oiy, there should be a Captain in there somewhere) (Somerville kid here)
  2. I use between 7-9 songs/pieces that run every 30 mins with a minute or two fading up/down lights at the beginning and end.
  3. I do naught know wot possessed me ta return 'ere, bu' seein' me thread bumped reminded me I did naught post th' video o' me snow machine.. On a timer it is, so it fires e'ery 2-3 mins or so.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOd_Lj6P54c
  4. I fly over St. Louis.. does that count?
  5. Cant really add more to what the others have already offered.. you were saying abt the lack of 16ch sequences.. you can use a higher channel number seq, just use the portion of it that looks good.. assign those specific channels to the ones you have.. meaning, go into the seq, and edit the unit/channel numbers for the parts of the chase, or fades, or blinkyblinky that you want to use, and set those channel numbers to the unit/number you have.. ..so someones unit 12, channels 1-16 becomes your unit 1/ch 1-16, or even just a part of them.. if the borrowed seq ch's 1-6 have an amazing chase, set for your lawn, or bushes, or house outline.. you dont have to use them all.. just assign the parts that you want and leave the rest to "blink" unassigned units and as others have said, Thank You for your service to our Country!
  6. WL doesn't use S2/3? Folders are the same are they not?
  7. Forget the Spring Sale, you'd never survive the carnage. Have you ever seen piranhas feed? Think of that image.. The quantity is very, very limited and the sale is over in 15-20 minutes. Wait for the Summer Sale. And software's never been on sale for as long as I've been here.
  8. Not understanding what you are asking.. you dont know where to put the sequence, and where to put the audio files? You have a Sequences folder and you have an Audio folder?
  9. 'think he meant squibs.. the term is squibs, that light off fuses, as in the Estes rocket motors.. tho, OP being from Brazil, they may have their own terms below the Eq.

  11. Some pretty shocking attitudes.. never wudda guessed it.. I have no trouble telling people what it entails, what it costs or the commitment involved. I have no trouble helping newbies, both local and distant.. the local ones are the people I'd call to help me put up or take down my props (for repairs, thank you again Brian and' Sal!!) .. Plus, I see it as a Christmas gift to them to help get their own bit of magic going for their family. But being mum, aloof, closelipped or even mean about it.. (shakin' head), that's jus' not right.
  12. CZH-05B, but NOT from Amazon, you'll pay $30+ more from there than you will from eBay. For a lot less cost than the EDM (but it's first choice) search eBay for the CZH-05B.. comes from China most times, takes 10days to two weeks, abt $45 shipped. You can find the same one on Amazon, usually in the US for abt $75.. so if you cant pop the cash for the EDM, or the extra $30-ish for the CZH-05B from Amazon, order one early in the year (or now) from eBay. It is ridiculously easy to set up and use. After you find a clear frequency after listening for a couple days both daytime and evenings in your area, find a freq that has at least three (if possible) clear channels between stations, ie: 99.1,station.. 99.3 clear, 99.5, clear, 99.7, clear, 99.9, station.. use the 99.5 if you can.. you will prob have to spend several days searching for a clear freq. Attach the antenna (FIRST!), push/hold the power button as you plug in the wallwart, set the power to L(ow), run the audio line from the audio jack on the computer, set the volume on Media Player to 50%-75% (no higher), set the input level on the transmitter to no higher than 50%-60%, anything higher can cause distortion, Thats it, no soldering, the power is set at 100milliwatts (.10 watt) so it should keep you from getting visited by guys in dark suits, wearing sunglasses, having no sense of humor, driving dark panel vans with Gov't plates.. I've been using the CZH-5B for three + years, no problems..

  14. Pre-Sales are you friend!! register on each site so you get the email notices..
  15. Oh, and Paste By Time, not By Cell.. if the grids arent the same timing ( .10 or .05) it's gonna mess up.. chose Paste By Time to get the part you're putting in aligned by the point in the music, not by the boxes..
  16. Start with plugging in the empty ext cord with nothing plugged into it. Then add one controller, then another until it trips.
  17. Borrow someones Windows XP disk, reformat, reinstall, using the licence key that is on the sticker on your computer NOT THEIR KEY.
  18. We make it a game.. I can name that tune in "three breaker buzzes"
  19. Windows Control Panel, Programs, uninstall LightORama. Your files (seq & audio) will remain in the Documents folder (or wherever you put it). Download the version your lic supports, install. Put in (copy/paste only) the lic from your welcoming email into the register window. Open Seq editor, click Help, Register.. yes, you will have to do again! Close Seq Editor, reopen it, you should be set. Look at the title bar, should say the version your lic is.
  20. Did you actually look in the sequence and see channels 17-32 are correctly assigned to unit #2?
  21. Do you have the computer connencted to the internet? Antivirus program running? what else is running in the background?
  22. Then it is most definitely a unit/channel assignment problem. Open one of your known good sequences, export the Channel Config file, save it. Open the NEW sequences, IMPORT your channel config file. test. is it working?
  23. Look, left side.. below Setup Comm Port and Auto Configure button. --------------------------------------------- SET UNIT IDs For units without selectors X (Check) Ignore Errors Box Select New Unit ID, pull down menu, select number (would be 2), click Set Unit ID button If you had to Change an existing Unit, you use the box below that one.
  24. hmmmm, nails on a chalkboard.. images of retching.. sounds of megatrees falling in a forest.. its just baaaaaad...
