New release of xlights/nutcracker 3.3.3 AND Tutorial Thursday, Apr 3 at 7pm


Recommended Posts

Well it has been two months since the last nutcracker release! Wow, normally we have been averaging 4 per month.


So, I better get busy.


Release 3.3.3. Download new version from http://nutcracker123.com/nutcracker/releases/


LSP Export now works!! A big thanks to Tom Langley for helping me reverse engineer the Patterns file for LSP 2.8.

The Text effect now has 4 lines of text instead of 2. If you put text in both Effect 1 and 2 you could have 8 different text strings, each going a different direction, each with their own font.


3.3.3 -Enhancement, requested (djulien): add Copy Effect Across Row menu item; copies selected cell (random effect) into other cells on the same row

-Enhancement, (sean) Added two more lines of text to text effect. Now you can have 4 lines of text.

-Bug fix (sean). Fixed LSP export. Yeah!

-Enhancement, requested (djulien): allow user-specified format string with Countdown Text effect; format is <delim>target-date<delim>format-string

for example: #4/1/2014 12:00:00#only %S seconds until noon on April 1!

NOTE: don't use "," within Text; there is an XML parsing bug in xLights when the file is reloaded

-Enhancement, requested (djulien): copy same random effect to all unlocked cells horizontally when Shift key used with Create Random Events button

-Enhancement (djulien): write playback checkpoints to file for crash monitoring

-Enhancement (djulien): add flag waving option to Pictures (useful for 4th of July, Memorial Day, etc)
