  1. An updated version of the Offline Editor for the Jester, JesterML & JesterTL desks - Phantom Jester - has been released. This can be downloaded from the Jester, JesterML or JesterTL support pages.

     

    This version of Phantom Jester corrects a problem loading JSF showfiles (JES-2988), there is no change to the desk software, which remains at the following versions:

    - Jester V3.4

    - JesterML/TL V3.0

  2. Unfortunately this is a bug in Phantom Jester when looking for JSF show files. It does not affect Phantom JesterML, Phantom JesterTL, or any of the actual desks. It will be fixed in the next version of Phantom Jester (reference JES-2988).

     

    To work around the problem for now, *hide* any other unwanted JSF files from Phantom Jester, either by renaming them to a different file extension, or by moving them into a subdirectory.

  3. Your suggestion has been logged for consideration in a future software update, reference number JES-2982.

     

    The button combination SHIFT + FIXTURES is already used to set the shifted wheel editing mode for brightness, do you have another suggestion for how you would like to see this work?

     

    It's important to make it easy to see that this mode is activated and to exit it, so that users who use palettes don't get confused by the new functionality, thinking the desk is broken because they can't see their palettes any more.

  4. JesterTL Operating Software version 3.0 has been released, and is available for download from the Zero 88 support website. CLICK HERE.

     

    Release 3.0 adds MIDI Show Control functionality, support for Inverse channels, plus a number of other improvements.

  7. That adapter isn't something we've ever tried, so we can't tell you whether it would work or not, sorry.

     

    A while ago, someone also asked us about THIS, but again, not something we've tried, so we can't say whether that would work either.

     

    If anyone has any experiences to share, good or bad, then please let us know!

  8. The Jester did not change, but continues to control Ch08 on the ILumen from Fader #2 and Ch09 on the ILumen from Fader #3.

     

    because:

     

    DMX:<008> Ch02

    DMX:<009> Ch03

     

    You are confusing DMX addresses with desk channels.

     

    Where you see DMX:<008>, that's the channel on the dimmer.

    Where you see Ch02, that's the fader on the Jester.

  9. The description you give does not match the DMX patch in the showfile, which is:

     

    DMX:<001> Ch07

    DMX:<002> Ch09

    DMX:<003> Ch08

    DMX:<004> Ch10

    DMX:<005> Ch13

    DMX:<006> Ch14

    DMX:<007> Ch01

    DMX:<008> Ch02

    DMX:<009> Ch03

    DMX:<010> Ch04

    DMX:<011> Ch05

    DMX:<012> Ch06

    DMX:<013> Ch11

    DMX:<014> Ch12

    DMX:<015> Ch15

    DMX:<016> Ch16

    DMX:<017> Ch--

    DMX:<018> Ch43

    DMX:<019> Ch44

    DMX:<020> Ch19

    DMX:<021> Ch21

    DMX:<022> Ch22

    DMX:<023> Ch23

    DMX:<024> Ch24

    DMX:<025> Ch25

    DMX:<026> Ch26

    DMX:<027> Ch27

    DMX:<028> Ch28

    DMX:<029> Ch29

    DMX:<030> Ch30

    DMX:<031> Ch31

    DMX:<032> Ch32

    DMX:<033> Ch33

    DMX:<034> Ch34

    DMX:<035> Ch35

    DMX:<036> Ch36

    DMX:<037> Ch37

    DMX:<038> Ch38

    DMX:<039> Ch39

    DMX:<040> Ch40

    DMX:<041> Ch41

    DMX:<042> Ch42

    DMX:<043> Ch43

    DMX:<044> Ch44

    DMX:<045> Ch45

    DMX:<046> Ch46

    DMX:<047> Ch47

    DMX:<048> Ch48

     

    The channel levels shown on the monitor are just that, channels, they do not show the patched DMX output, so changing the DMX patch will not in any way affect the channel levels shown on the monitor displays.

     

    Do you also have a DMX patch set on the dimmer which is confusing things?

  10. On the Jester, the DMX addresses are shown on the left, and the desk channel numbers are shown on the right. Looking at your showfile, I think this is where the confusion may be.

    Select the DMX address first using the cursors. Then press the flash button for the desk channel that you want to control that DMX address.
