Imagine a system that includes a Kiosk, a B-Station-2, and a CueCore3.

The Kiosk is used as user input, controlling IRGBAL values via faders (OSC - behavior - int - control) to the Cue Core. It also has the functionality to record presets to be triggered by the BS2.

Is it possible to change the values of the faders in real-time when the presets have been selected? I don't see anything that gives a fader a tag to be able to manipulate

When button 1 is pushed > release all > jump to Playback 01 : Track 01 >  Change \fader1 to 50%, \fader2 to 75%... etc

Currently, the Kiosk is king. Its output will continue to override regardless of the preset programmed.

I am not sure I understand 100% of your question but, I think you need to send the playback intensity value to the kiosc.
To do that, you will first have to ask the CueCore to send the playback value via OSc or UDP/TCP. In show control create a playback action.
Select intensity as trigger type, and change as trigger flank, and do not forget to select which playback you want teh value from.
Then create a UDP/OSc/TCP task that will send a float as it is a percentage.

On the KIOSC side, your fader already have a tag to be able to control the intensity of playback, if you send a float value via UDP/OSC to this tag to teh Kiosc then you will control the fader in the Kiosc.

Do not forget to change the Fader to float between 0.0 and 1.0 in Kiosc editor.

I hope this will help you,

I'm not using playback. I'm sending raw values from the sliders to multiple DMX channels as groups of lights

IRGBAL
123456
789101112

I >1,7 values 1-255
R>2,8 values 1-255
G>3,9
etc etc

-when I push a a BS2 button, it jumps to a track
Playback Jump Set 1 1

Is there a way to take DMX values and point them at individual faders to represent percentage?

playback track 1.1 > ch1 value 255
Kiosk slider \intensity = 255

Appendix A 2.2 Explains

Quote
A.2.2 Feedback
Feedback can be sent to a fader using its tag. The type of message determines
which attribute of the fader it changes. The following attributes of a button
can be set using feedback:
• Value
The current value of a fader can be set by a feedback message, for example, to
indicate the current intensity of a playback. The fader responds to feedback
matching its type, and it takes into account the min and max range set in the
showfile.

so I can send feedback, but how can I read DMX channel values into variables.

OK, I start to understand your concept.
In your case, I think the best would be to loop one port of the CueCore3 to an other one.
You would have:
POrt A Univers A
Port B Univers A
Port C input connected ti port B.
This way you will have as DMX input the values you are outputting and you will be able to get those values to give feedback to the. kiosc.

All for ports will be used for Universe A. that's not an option.

in the end, I'm sending OSC commands as Kiosc based variables, SACN to update information.
It's working.

I will however complain about this program and it's file management.
I've overwritten files several times, and if the app crashes, I have to jump through hoops to get a config back.
Garbage.

I've spent a week manually programming sliders in three different formats (kiosc, ipad, iphone) working on making everything work because your app is can't handle IRGBALZ fixtures.

I am not sure I understand what you are explaining but I am glad to know that it is working.,

I am sorry to read that you had a bad experience using our product,
Could you explain me with more what was your main problem with the files, it could be that you did not use the system as we designed it.

For the IRGBALZ compatibility, we are always working to improve our product, if you could show me how RGBAL color mixing could be manage without extra faders that would be really helpful.
