  1. Hi Nick, The console simply requires the ZerOS OS USB Creator application file, with the .exe file extension. Click the .exe file, and the console will then begin the upgrade. As Kevin says, make sure the install file is on the roof of the USB stick, not inside any folders. Hope this helps, Edward
  2. Hi Demi, Do you want to be able to remotely control the console using the Remote apps? If so, please take a look at our guide below... http://support.zero88.com/996119181 Hope this helps, if you have any questions let me know. Edward
  3. Hi Nick, The article on our website you linked to is for consoles running ZerOS software or earlier. To update the console, follow the steps in the release notes, or the ones in the article below... http://support.zero88.com/1518910761 Hope this helps, Edward
  4. Hendriks first saw this in July, before the DMX Transmission option was introduced. For clarity, Continuous streams DMX at 29Hz, and Delta sends DMX packets every time there is a change, and if there aren't any level changes, one update per second, as per the DMX512 spec. If you have any questions let me know. Edward
  5. Hi Dirk, We have received this and are looking into it. If you have any questions let us know. Edward
  6. Hi Hendrik, Unfortunately we still haven't received an email from you. Please try forwarding the email to me directly (EdwardSmith@Eaton.com), and I'll take a look. Since we last spoke, we released ZerOS 7.9.6 software. Have you installed this on your console? Edward
  7. Dear All, Zero 88 Fixture Library version 39 has now been released. For full information, including a list of included fixtures, please visit: http://zero88.com/library This release contains 11,461 fixtures from 379 different manufacturers. The library is released in 2 formats: Full version for desks running ZerOS software (FLX, FLX S, Solution range, ORB range and Leap Frog 48 & 96). Filtered version for other Zero 88 desks. This removes data that is not used by these other desks, so that the file is smaller. When using a floppy disk (original Frog series, Illusion 500) it is recommended that the floppy disk be freshly formatted before using it. Download & Installation The correct format of the library for your desk can be downloaded by clicking the product name below. Please ensure your console is running the latest software before attempting to update. The library (.ift file) should be placed in the root directory of the floppy disk or USB stick. ZerOS desks (FLX, FLX S, Solution range, ORB range and Leap Frog 48 & 96) To load this file into your console extract it to the root of a USB stick and plug into your console. Then tap SETUP, tap "Load", then select the GFT.ift file. JesterML & JesterTL To load this file into your console extract it to the root of a USB stick and plug into your console. Then tap Setup -> Update Fixture Lib -> Update Library. If the update fails, click here for more information. Frog Series and Illusion 500 Use 'Common Fixture Manager' (included in the Fixture Tools download) to select the fixtures you wish to use, and save this as a file to a floppy disk. Diablo The fixture library is used with the Diablo Fixture Manager PC software. Sirius 250/500 Use the Fixture Type Editor to import fixture types from the fixture library, and then use the ‘Export Sirius UFT’ function (under the ‘File’ menu) to generate data in the correct format for the Sirius 250/500. Further details of assigning fixtures on the desk to fixture types in the fixture library can be found in each desk’s operating manual. Additional Fixtures If you need a fixture type which is not in the library, please click here.

    Hi Rolf, No problem. Merry Christmas to you too! Edward

    Hi Rolf, As previous versions of ZerOS allowed ArtNet to be broadcast, this prevents the need for devices to subscribe to a universe first. ZerOS 7.9.5 introduced full ArtNet 4 support to ZerOS. I have tested a Transcension N4 Ethernet gateway with FLX running ZerOS 7.9.5, and a laptop running Wireshark on the same network. Wireshark showed that the ArtPollReply packet from the N4 was malformed, which was solved in later firmware versions of the N4. I am therefore not sure what the compatibility issue would have been with the ENTTEC Datagate. If you were interested I'd recommend contacting ENTTEC, and ask how the updated firmware solves the issue. Edward
  10. Hi Sven, If you want to have a fader that inhibits a pair of fixtures, set them to the maximum level you wish them to be able to go to, then tap RECORD, then choose an empty playback to store to. Then in the Playback Settings, change the Intensity Mixing to be Inhibit. Now the intensity of these fixtures will be scaled by this inhibitor. More information on Playback Settings can be found here... http://support.zero88.com/1077997011 Edward

    Hi Rolf, Thanks for the information. That is good to know. As a general rule, if a device is compliant with ArtNet 3, it will be compatible with ArtNet 4. If a device works with ArtNet 3 but is not necessarily compliant, there's no guarantee it will be compatible with ArtNet 4. For more information, the ArtNet 4 specification can be found on Artistic Licence's website below... https://artisticlicence.com/WebSiteMaster/User Guides/art-net.pdf If you have any questions let me know. Edward

    Hi Martin, For ArtNet to be output from the Ethernet port of a PC running PhantomZerOS an unlock dongle is required. Edward
  13. Hello, Welcome to the Zero 88 Forum. You would do this by positioning your fixtures all towards the middle of the audience. You could then apply a movement effect, such as a circle, and the fixtures would then move in a circle around their position. You can then adjust this using the Speed and Size controls that will be on the encoder wheels. You can then apply an offset, so the pair of fixtures aren’t doing exactly the same thing, but one is following after the other. If you wanted to be very specific you could program this as a chase, with each fixture in a location per step. You could then configure these positions to fade one after the other, rather than snap. Your correct in that to remove the obvious locations for each step, you’d have to make lots of steps to smooth out the movement. I’d definitely suggest using an effect first and modifying it to suit, and if you need something very specific then record a position chase. Hope this helps, Edward
  14. Hi Zulu, Great, if you have any questions just let me know. Edward
  15. Hi Zulu, If cue 10.5 is recorded cue only, it means cue 11 on-wards will look exactly how you programmed them. Therefore in the background, when you have recorded cue 10.5 cue only, the console has then edited cue 11, to tell any changes from 10.5 to go back to how they had been before, with any tracked information still using the values they had from cue 10, and the tracking can then continue. Changing the tracking mode will not affect any existing cues. However once cue only has been enabled, it will stay enabled for any future recording/updating until you change the Record Options back to Track Forwards. You can do this at any point by pressing and holding RECORD, changing the option, and then pressing RECORD again to save and close. Hope this helps, Edward
