Light-O-Rama version 4.2.12 released

Recommended Posts

We have just released version 4.2.12 of the Light-O-Rama Software Suite.  This is an official production release, not a beta release.  It is a bug fix release intended to fix two bugs with the Show Player.

 

IMPORANT NOTE FOR CURRENT BETA USERS

If you are currently using beta version 4.3.0 or beta version 4.3.2, do NOT install this version (4.2.12).  Instead, a new beta release (version 4.3.4) has been made; use that instead.

 

How to check if your license covers this version

To check whether or not your license covers this version, please go to the license retrieval page, and enter your email address (the one you purchased your license with). An email should then be sent to you with information about your license. The "Summary" section of the email will tell you whether or not your license covers the latest version.

 

If the email says that your "Max Version" is "4.2.*" (or higher, such as "4.3.*" or "4.7.*"), then your license already covers this version.  You can use it without making any additional purchase.  Please note, though, that your computer may not yet understand that your license covers this version, so when you install, it might tell you that you are running in Demo mode.  In this case, simply reactivate your license (for example, via "Upgrade Light-O-Rama" on the Sequence Editor's "Help" menu), and your computer will then learn that your license is valid for this version.

 

On the other hand, if the email instead says that your "Max Version" is "4.1.*" (or lower, such as "4.0.*" or "3.12.*"), then your license does not cover this version.  In that case, you have several options:

 

Upgrading or Renewing Your License

(1) You can continue using whatever version your license does cover (for example, perhaps your license covers version 4.1).

 

(2) If you want to take this opportunity to increase your license level to take advantage of additional features, you can purchase a license level upgrade.  This counts as a license renewal too - that is, your license will now work with this new version (and some future versions too).  So, if you do this, there is no reason to also purchase a license renewal.

 

(3) If you already own a Light-O-Rama license, but you do not currently own Light-O-Rama SuperStar, or if you want to upgrade SuperStar to a higher number of CCRs/channels, you could purchase or upgrade SuperStar.  This also counts as a license renewal for the rest of the Light-O-Rama software suite, so if you do this, there is no reason to also purchase a license renewal.  Please note that you must already own a license for the rest of the Light-O-Rama software suite in order to take this option.

 

(4) If you do not want to purchase a license level upgrade or Light-O-Rama SuperStar, you can purchase a license renewal.  Your license will now work with the new version (and some future versions too), at the same license level as it currently does.  For example, if you have an Advanced license, it will remain an Advanced license, but it will now cover the new version of software.

 

What's New in Version 4.2.12

This version is a bug fix release for the 4.2 branch:

 

  • In some cases, the second time that a sequence was played during a run of a show, it would fail with an error message saying "ERROR WITH SEQUENCE (Invalid play state (3) for InitializeForPlay)", and the sequence would never successfully play again during that run of the show.  Now, if the Show Player notices a sequence in this invalid play state, instead of giving up on trying to play the sequence, it will attempt to reset the sequence to clear out the problem so that it can be played again.
  • In some cases, a seemingly random string of Chinese characters (seemingly not actual meaningful Chinese text) would appear in LOR Control Panel's Status window.  At least some instances of this have been fixed.

 

How To Get the Latest Version

You can download the new version from the software download page. If that page lists a different version number as the lastest version, please click your browser's refresh button.

 

Thank You!

Thank you to all of our customers, and especially the beta testers who have helped make this happen.
