  1. USB

    Would it be possible to install a usb port into a fatfrog in place of the floppy drive, I keep breaking the disks.
  2. The first 50 people logged on to the frog site should get a free desk lamp!
  3. How about a wizard program to create your own effects for the generator, you design then on your puter, save to disk,shove up the duck of the desk and save to the effects generator. The four that are already there and up to eight others of your choice? Can it be done?
  4. Fatfrog In The Fantastic Four Movie

    Did anybody spot the Zero88 fatfrog in the new fantastic four movie?. And not a lamp in site.
  5. Is there any chance of been able to patch multiple fixtures to a fixture button WITH OUT changing their addersses, ie.. was in a club for a three night stint using house dmx run(too lasy to run mine!) and instead of rerouting the house dmx from foh back to the twit box(dj) could have been easier to patch all their fixtures to the fatfrog and push the magic frog button :?
  6. Numeric Entry

    Can you upgrade the desk so as the external keyboard can be used to patch channels to the DMX, instead of frantic + & - pushing!. 8O
  7. How do you post photos on the site :?:
  8. Stepper motors

    Has anybody out there got a simple way of controling stepper motors.(not via a frog). Ripped an old martin 218 non dmx unit apart for the duck of it and was wondering how would i be able to control the motors say to pan and tilt a video camera. Keep it simple. 8O
  9. Stepper motors

    Its the old martin protocol, the board makes no sense to me. If the scan accepted dmx then no probs but I'm not spending money on a martin converter for a mess around project in the stores. Found it!! lets see who can build the next huge thing in lighting http://www.milinst.com/DMX/dmxtext.htm
  10. Desk is dead!!

    Try plugging the desk into another mains supply, if power failed the outlet or circut may be damaged.

  13. Off Line Editor

    What`s the chance of an off line editor for the frog range,so we can break the back of programming on site and get to catering for a change! Something with a visual aspect would be nice,so we can see what we are doing!! ANY ONE ELSE UP FOR THE IDEA?? :idea:
  14. De Stoelemat in Bergen op Zoom

    I did a show there a few years ago, the desk was straight from flash gorden and crap faded washes. Most of the rig is used as punter lighting. :cry:
  15. DMX B out on desk problem

    By any chance was Speedy anywhere near the desk, he has the touch of death when it comes to lighting. 8O
  16. No sound multi's

    Well been lazy at a gig the other day, instead of running my dmx snake I jumped into a spare channel on the noiseboy's multi. BUT! unknowen to me the monitor desk was been used for the gig, and yes it happened the monitor noiseboy turned on the phantom power on the channel I was using for the dmx, the nodding buckets and dimmers went mad as a result of 48DC volts attacking there soft bits. Now the fatfrog seemed to get away with no scrapes but I'm down six 6 way dimmers and two mac kryptons. :cry: So fellow lampies ALWAYS RUN YOUR OWN SNAKE!!!! :!:
  17. Desklight

    You can pick up 12v bulbs in all car accessory shops

  20. Moving Light Simulator

    The next time you have access to the movers, program all your pallets first then save the show to disk and write protect the disk. Then next time your stuck for time load the disk and bang it out.
  21. Copying Fixture Data

    So thats what the manual is for! I was using it to stop the dimmer rack from rolling off the stage Very handy for that too 8O
  22. Show your show

    WOW a bit mad on the eyebrow department!!
  23. Frog Case

    Keyboard in a 1U drawer at the front, TFT under the desk. Case on wheels easy to push. On the lefthand side of the desk a storage area for pens,disks and pvc.
  24. USB

    Get a flight case with a small "dog house" at the back Plenty of room for the PSU and getting disks in and out.
  25. Step1, Are all DMX addresses correct on the movers Step2, Are the fixtures patched on the desk, and the right personalitys loaded. Step3, Look at the movers and on the dmx input it should be pin 3 +, and pin 2 - If all above does'ent work, wipe the desk and reload and readdress everything again, it will save a "brain boil".
