    Can't wait to try it myself! Don't have (many) lights still up - but - have a setup plugged in inside for testing throughout the year.

    Im assuming there will still be a way to install all addins and plugins etc.

    Yes. The idea is that the zip file will contain only the necessary files and the most-popular plugins and add-ins. If you need something beyond that, they will be available on the web site. Except for this test build, it will have everything to save some hassle.

    excellent - I am definately up for a test as I still have the gear in the shed yet to be packed away

    Edit: and while I was one that had issues, your test version fixed them for me. Besides one crash during a show, a daily reboot USUALLY fixed the problem before the update, and after the update I never had a problem at all.

    Thanks KC.

    My display is still up, buried under a foot or two of snow, but still ready to do some tests with.
    Cheers!

    Alrighty then. Now that the work week has passed...

    The zip file has been put together. It's late, so please let me know if I've forgotten anything. I figured it would be easier to post the link here than trying to email everyone individually since I got about a 500% bigger response than I could have hoped for (thanks!).

    Before I forget...there is a data conversion in this to remove the use of channel groups in the profiles. So either copy over any profiles you want to try with 2.1 before running it for the first time or copy the prepare.exe file elsewhere and copy it back in anytime you want to convert some profiles. Or if you're not going to use profiles, act as if I said nothing.

    I think that covers it. I hope that covers it. Files are in the zip, the zip is posted, everything should be rebuilt. File conversion, dire warnings, CYA...I think it's all there. Anyone still here in January seems to be the hard-core folks, so I trust all of your collective judgments and opinions.

    Thanks, again! Any errors or omissions will be corrected tomorrow (or later today, as it is).

    KC,

    Copied all my files on the 2.1 new directory,

    Fired up Vixen 2.1

    Prepare.exe did its thing,

    Loaded up a sequence and let it run. No issues.

    Stoped the sequence, went into Profile Manager and added a channel to the attached profile, again no problem playing the sequence. <-- this was my area of problems

    Detached and re-attached the profile, played again, no issue.

    The added channel appears in all, no issues with AP or anything I can find.

    Its looking good from my end KC, The neighbors enjoyed the encore of the lights this morning.. LOL

    Some of them actually want to to run again tonight for them to record!
    Cheers!

    I am testing the issue I had this year...running the background music whenever a program isn't running. I am adding a lot of audio files (same as I always do) and setting it to shuffle them. I'll have a short program run every quarter hour to see if the music stops in time for the program's music to not overlap.

    Another problem I had with 2.0 was the default timing preference for new sequences. I had set it to 50 but it always behaved as 100. This, too, appears to not occur with 2.1.

    Only thing I can note is a request to disable the Programs >Manage button while "Executing Timer Control" routine is running.

    Nothing can be done with Vixen until the current Executing Timer Control runs its course, or you crash Vixen from the Control Panel.
    Cheers!
