Hello.

We have a B-Station2 controller for a big project.
All is fine, but I have problems with setup some specific cues for our customer.
While programming, the delay of the browser is very bad and I have to program very small steps (DMX values) exactly.
Normally I prefer to edit some of the XML files manually (Cuelux, Cuety, Midi-Files, fixtures...).

In this case, it would be perfect, but I can't encrypt / decrypt the Cue values.
I only need two DMX channels for this project.
First channel is brightness (dim), second is a macro channel with 4 steps each macro from 0-255.

Is there a possibility to generate the cues manually?
I have no problem to create a script which generates the cues.
I only need the information, how to build the cue string correctly with my values
Can you help me with that problem?

I need it as fast as possible, because on monday is the presentation and I have to prepare much before.
Thank you for your help.

I have attached a demo-backup.
Starting at line 329 - <cue label="Cue02"> ...

Best regards,
Toby

Hi Toby,

I'm afraid this might be a bit complicated, the cues are base64 encodings of a c++ struct. Not something I want to post on the forums.
I will send you an email to discuss this further though.

Hi Bootsy,

to add my two cents here too, we've just finished a large installation with a lot of B-Station2 programming.

could we put in a feature request for the ability to enter a DMX or percentage value for the faders in the Playback tab, it would save a ton of time when programming and would solve Toby's problem too.

cheers

Andy

Hi Andy,

It is not up to me unfortunately, but I did add it to the wish list.

Greetings,
Bootsy
