    Hello, Welcome to the Zero 88 Forum. Great, thanks very much for sharing that. Cheers, Edward
  2. Hi Gabriel, Great, glad to hear you are now running the latest software. Future software updates will now be much easier, as you will be able to simply load the application directly into the console as if it were a show file. Now you're up to date, you may find the video below worth a watch, which is the video you sent a screen shot of in an earlier post... Once you have fixtures patched into the console, you will be able to select them using the channel fader buttons, and by tapping FIXTURES and using the MFKs. To access Groups, you should find you can tap the GROUPS button, and the MFKs will show you your groups, along with a button to Automatically Create Groups. You can also access the Groups window on the external monitor. Hold SHIFT and tap GROUPS to open the window, and use the desktop buttons bottom left to find where it has opened. To record your own groups, select some lights, tap RECORD GROUPS and tap an empty MFK to store to. Hope this helps, Edward
  3. Hi Gabriel, If you are having difficulty getting the console to boot from the USB stick, have you tried inserting the formatted USB stick into the USB port next to the Ethernet port? If you are still experiencing difficulty, I would recommend trying a different USB stick. Before formatting the USB stick using the ZerOS OS Creator application on Windows, first in Windows File Explorer do a quick format of the USB stick. If this also doesn't help, please see the guide below... http://support.zero88.com/998317101 Hope this helps, let me know how you get on. Edward
  4. Hi David, In the latest version of the library, you will simply see "3ch (RGB)". This does include a virtual intensity, and I would recommend using this for each pixel. The fixture without virtual intensity has been removed from the library, to always encourage people to take advantage of the virtual intensity. The benefit of using RGB with a virtual intensity, is you will have access to colour effect, and intensity effects. Yes, I reckon patch every single pixel individually (2x 170 RGB), and then create groups to give you the most flexibility, and also ease of control. You could then create your own groups to achieve your description above. Auto groups, will give you a group for all pixels, odds, evens, first half, second half. You should find using these groups in conjunction with effects and colours is going to give you lots of flexibility. For more information on groups see below... http://support.zero88.com/1011579831 Hope this helps, if you have any questions let me know. Edward
  5. Hi David, I haven’t used this pixel tape driver myself with FLX, but you should be able to get some nice effects from it. A configuration example, is you could have universes 1 and 2 from the ports on the back of the console, and then send universes 3 and 4 over ArtNet. When patching, your best bet is to patch two lots of 170 RGB pixels, first onto universe 3 then onto universe 4, for example. Give them fixture numbers out the way, I’d be tempted to say even 1001 upwards, as it is unlikely you’ll want to control them individually, and instead just grab control of them with groups. You can then simply tap a group, tap an effect, and you’ll be able to run effects across the pixels. Apologies if this was similar to your plan already, but hopefully this gives some pointers for you or anyone else using pixel tape with FLX. If you have any questions let me know. Edward
  6. Hello, Really glad to hear your FLX S24 has arrived. Yes, worth connecting the fixtures, and see if they give FLX S enough information for FLX S to create a fixture personality for you. If not, as Kevin says send us an email to fixturesupport@zero88.com, with a link to the manuals of the fixtures you need, and we’ll be able to create and send them to you. If you come across any questions whilst you’re practicing, just let us know. Edward
  7. Hello, Welcome to the Zero 88 Forum. Great, glad FLX S24 will work for you. If you have any other questions regarding the console please let us know. Thanks @kgallen for your support. Edward
  8. Hi Gabriel, No problem at all, glad I could help. If you have any questions once you get back to Uni or need a hand updating the software just let me know. Edward
  9. Hi Nick, Welcome to the Zero 88 Forum. There have been no resolution improvements to Phantom ZerOS Front Panel window since this topic. If you are unsure of a front panel button, hover over it with your cursor, and the button name will be displayed in the Front Panel header bar. The virtual internal touchscreen will not be improved, as this can be opened as a separate Phantom window, by ticking "Show LCD" in the Phantom ZerOS launcher. For a list of keyboard shortcuts to make your life easier, see below... http://support.zero88.com/998481801 Hope this helps, if you have any questions let us know. Edward
  10. Hi Fred, Hope you’re well. That’s great, glad to hear you have decided on FLX S48. Rather than me explain this on the forum, you may find watching the video below helpful... The first half of this video goes in depth on how to program a chase, and all the options available. The second half of the video then goes in-depth on effects. Give this a watch and let me know how you get on. If you would like any particular pointers, please do let me know. Edward

    Hi Gabriel, No problem, thanks for the information. Just so you are aware, those training sessions are primarily for our FLX consoles, but as Solution XL runs the same software as FLX, most will be applicable to Solution XL too. Some of the buttons you see will be different though. If you have any other questions whilst you learn the console do let me know. Edward
  12. Hi Gabriel, Yes, any Ethernet cabling will work. By default, you should see a screen layout that looks like the image. If you don’t, the windows have either be rearranged, or you aren’t running the latest software on your Solution XL. We always recommend running the latest software, and if you are learning the console it would also make sense to ensure it’s up to date. To check your current software version, view your Outputs Window. If you cannot see the window labelled Outputs Window, tap OUTPUTS to open it. If it doesn’t open, use the desktop chooser bottom left of the screen to change desktops until you find where the Output Window has opened. Then tap Other Windows top left of the Output Window, and then choose System Info from the drop down. In this window will be a line of text displaying the software version. The latest software for Solution XL is ZerOS 7.9.7. If you would like to update the software, please see the information below, and please ask if you have any questions. https://zero88.com/zeros#download To rename channels/ fixtures, see the article below... http://support.zero88.com/1011594321 Hope this helps, Edward
  13. Hi Gabriel, By XL, I assume you mean Solution XL console. Yes that’s correct. If you have a spare wireless router, the same one used at home, you can simply connect it to the console using a CAT5E cable. You can then enable the remote connection on the console, enable DHCP, and the router will then manage the console and the connected devices. For more information, see below... http://support.zero88.com/996119181 Could you elaborate a little on categorise name? Hope this helps, Edward

    Hi Gabriel, Welcome to the Zero 88 Forum. No, SmartTag is a function, that allows the console to do a bit of work in the background, to make sure what you see on stage at the point of pressing RECORD, is what you’ll get when you play it back. Without SmartTag, only “tagged” values get stored. You can therefore toggle this option on/off to choose how you wish to program on the console. By “tagged”, we mean values you have manually changed, not values from other cues. For more information on this, see below... http://support.zero88.com/1014189311 Tracking is as you describe, where if you add a fixture in, it will stay there until it’s told to go off. May I ask which ZerOS console you have, and what uni you’re at? Feel free to email me this info if you’d prefer. If you’d like to go in-depth, take a look at our training sessions below... https://www.zero88.com/live In particular, check out our session on Tracking, including SmartTag... Hope this helps, if you have any questions let me know. Edward
  15. Hi Doug, Welcome to the Zero 88 Forum. I can confirm all of these products use PSU 0010211, so PSUs can be interchanged with the products below, as stated in the spare parts list in the product web pages... https://zero88.com/control/level https://zero88.com/control/alcora https://zero88.com/control/diablo PSUs for consoles with analogue outputs are no longer available. The article you found on Google has been deleted recently, and spare parts information has been added to the relevant product pages. If you have any questions let us know. Edward
