    Default On the go sequencing ???

    Hey guys
    I am currently doing all my sequencing on my desktop computer at home using xlights
    I will be traveling in the next couple of weeks and I would like to work on my sequences while Iím away on vacation
    Can I work on my sequences with the same model previews and music on another laptop and if so what do I need to setup this up.
    I will be installing xlights on a laptop which I have at my vacation home once I get there.
    Thanks for the help
    Cheers

    I don't use xLights but I believe that you can... You have to put the media and show directories from your desktop onto your laptop... Then, open xLights and hit the setup tab (if I recall correctly). You should then be able to choose the locations of the newly added media and show directories on your laptop.

    Any xLights users out there, please correct me if I'm wrong.

    You need to copy the xlights_networks.xml and xlights_rgbeffects.xml to the new machine. I think you also have to load your background image again as well. Remember to bring those two files back to your desktop after your time away.

    Open xlights on your main PC and note the location of your "Show Folder", copy that to a USB drive, cloud storage and then to your Laptop (in Documents) and point that copy of xlights to use that as the "Show Folder"

    Just use dropbox or similar cloud storage. My show directory is in my dropbox account and I can work on it at home, at work, or on the road. It is always available to me. The only caveat is to be sure to save and close at one location before opening at another location. If you do it will show up in dropbox as a conflicting file, no biggie, just better to not leave program open.
