The new personality file is written for the most recent non-beta software version of Cuelux, Cuelux pro and Cuety, available on www.visualproductions.nl/downloads

For Cuelux and CueluxPro
Please make sure Cuelux is not running. Then, unzip the (attached) personality file into:

Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<USER>\My Documents\Visual Productions\Common\Personalities\User
Windows Vista/7/8: C:\Users\<USER>\Documents\Visual Productions\Common\Personalities\User
Mac OS X:              /Users/<USER>/Visual Productions/Common/Personalities/User
Ubuntu Linux:         ~/Visual Productions/Common/Personalities/user

Note: Replace the <USER> text with your own username

Overwrite the old .XML file(s).
When you start up Cuelux, the new file will be loaded.

For Cuety

-iOS: If you are using a MacOs system to transfet the file, go to Finder once the Ipad connected
If you are using a WIndows system, use Itunes to access your Ipad.
-MacOS: Go to the options menu by pressing the OPTIONS but-
ton. Then press the folder button to open a file window, showing the
appropriate folder.
-Linux: Go to the options menu by pressing the OPTIONS button.
Then press the folder button to open a file window, showing the appro-
priate folder.
-Windows: Go to the options menu by pressing the OPTIONS button.
Then press the folder button to open a file window, showing the appro-
priate folder.
-Android: Go to the options menu by pressing the OPTIONS button.
Then press the "Import" button to open a file selection window. Select your user.personality file and click "ok", it will automatically copy the file to the right folder.

Do not forget to unzip the user.personality provided file.
Once the file had been added, restart Cuety to update the fixture library. The new fixture will be in the manufacturer folder situated at the top of the manufacturer list between brackets  { }

Notice :As cuety can only manage one user.personality file you may have to merge your existing file with the new one. To do that you can have a look at this video tutorial:

Notice :If the user.personality do not fit perfectly your expectations you can edit it by hand. To do that you can have a look at this video tutorial and at the included PDF:

Be aware that the, especially newly created, personality file that has been written for you is not tested on the actual fixture. It is therefore always advised to test the personality file before using it in live shows.
Please let us know if you encounter any difficulties with a personality file or if you require a new one to be made for a currently unsupported fixture.
