    Yes we disable the fb3 style dmx in control.
    We can't find the problem unfortunately.

    Hi Guys,

    The answer:

    Brightness param(1)*100

    For DMX linked scripts param(1) return normalized value of channel and param(2) return dmx value "as is", from 0 to 255.

    In case of such problems I recommend to use DisplayPopup command and see what is result of ExtValue(). Or, use qlog command for logging.

    The second thing to test is command itself. Simple way to do it - PangoScript editor. Run by one line, and use constants like:

    Brightness 50
    Brightness 30

    BEYOND 699B has a problem DMX to PangoScript script activization code, related to ExtValue. Param(1) and Param(2) work correctly.

    This problem already fixed in 2.1

    Best Regards,

    Hey Alexey,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I've tried param(1) and param(2) with a dmx controller and it works!
    I will take a look to Beyond Advanced 2.1 in the future.

    Thanks for the help Bob and Alexey.

    Best regards,

    Time Control Fun(ctions)

    Hi All,

    So the functions I really want to map are on the Time Control tab in some versions, and in others on the Master tab. In my version (2.0 SLE) they are on the Time Control tab. I can't figure out what command would map to the spinning disc, as well as the Reverse Playing Cues button. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't mind being able to map all 4 of the buttons on that tab. Anyone have any ideas? If I can get the spinning disc mapped to an encoder and the others mapped to buttons, I'll be a happy clam.

    You cannot create or edit Pangoscript with Beyond Essentials. Read & Execute only.

    Thanks for the prompt response, as i have a SLE 2.0 can i create a script in it and save it to be loaded in essentials? sorry for the ignorance new to this component area of beyond . i have identified the command i want exists i want to establish if i can create pango script >midi or pango script > universe thing then load that into essentials as a read execute function?

    If you create something in SLE 2.0 you should be able to open it in a newer essentials version, however after opening it in a newer version, there is no way back.

    Thanks i was looking to map InvertPlayersTime to one of the buttons i dont use much on one of the existing APC 40 patches. I must admit i seem to be making work for my self jumping between SLE2.0 and latest 3.0 build of essentials, i think in the long run, ill update annually from essential to advanced and advanced to ultimate
