  Software Release V2.21 (15-09-2023)
Posted by: Ron - 15-09-2023, 09:26 AM - Forum: Chimp Software Releases - No Replies

Version 2.21

*** New Features ***

- Implement Cuelist Pause functionality without back (Fader-Button, MIDI, DMX In, Cuelist Commands, Virtual Executors)
- Implement Tap Speed for Effects.
  - Effects are still syncronized to the global synchronization and not to the tap itself, however the effect speed is now calculated as a rate based on 60 BPM. This behaviour is as such to make sure effects in the same cue with different speeds are still in synchronity. Also, in order to tap your effects accurately to the speed, they **must** be programmed at a speed of 60 CPM. If an effect is programmed with 30 CPM, it will run with half the speed of the tapped speed.
  - In order for a cuelists effect tap button function to work, the fx speed master settings of the cuelist need to be set to "Local BPM". Alternatively you can use a FX Speed Master.
  - The Cuelist's "FX Speed" Fader function scales any speed, either set by BPM locally or through a master relatively to such. Ie. The FX Speed master is set to 50% and the local FX Speed is set to 50%, then the resulting effect will run at 25% of its programmed speed.
- Implement FX Speed Master Settings in Timing Menu
  - An FX Speed Master can now be absolute (BPM) or relative (0-100%)
  - Absolute FX speed masters have a configurable minimum and upper bound
- Added a Patch Import function to import Fixture Patches via a CSV file (infinity/patch_import_export on the USB Stick)
- Added "Appearance" Command for Special Masters
- Amount of Release Groups has been increased to 20
- Updated Qt to 6.4.3
- Updated Boost to 1.7.9

*** Changes ***

- Patch Export Folder on USB Stick has been changed from infinity/patch_export to infinity/patch_import_export

*** Bugfixes ***

- Library: CIE Intensity and HSI Intensity default should be 100%
- Library: CIE xy default should be D65 white
- F_MINT is not used in virtual Dimmer function
- Show Default Timings are not saved / recalled in showfile
- Gobo4 Rotation is falsely mapped to Gobo3 Rotation
- Make chimp Showpartition RW at all times
- Some multicell fixtures had wonky patch behaviour (ie. American DJ Jolt 300 was always patched to universe 1, channel 13)
- Fixed a text length limitation in range representation editor
- Elements recorded using “All for Selected” and “All Values” do not include programmer content
- Snake Predefined Effect inserts a Tilt effect twice
- Fixed an issue where the patch of certain fixtures changed after re-opening a showfile (I.e. ADJ Mega Bar LED)
- Fixed a crash when opening the Record Content Menu in the record toolbar for the second time
- Fixed Effect Editor Ramp Up / Ramp Down icons not matching the button description

  chimp 100 V 2.10 Bug Report: update fixture error
Posted by: Le Kafteur - 07-09-2023, 06:07 PM - Forum: Chimp Bug Reports - Replies (4)

Type of the Desk: CHIMP 100G2 + banana

Software Version: 2.1

External Display Connected, is a touchscreen?: 2 touchscreens

Connected USB Devices: no

Networked Devices: yes
When I try to update the fixture library on the latest version,by network , at the "verifying checksum....." step all the keys goes off and chimp said "whoops! It looks like the server crashed.." and i need to reboot...!
How can I solve this?
Where can we download the file with the lastest version of the library fixture for updating by USB?

  Software Release V2.0.2 (06-09-2023)
Posted by: Ron - 07-09-2023, 09:04 AM - Forum: LAMPY Software Releases - No Replies

**                                      Version 2.0.2 (06.09.2023)                                                    **

Please make sure to back up your show files before updating the console to this release.
You may downgrade to older versions at any time but shows saved with newer versions are not compatible with older versions.
Feedback and Feature Requests
We are now using https://showtec-lampy.nolt.io for feedback and feature requests. For support, please use the facebook group which can be found at https://www.facebook.com/groups/showteclampy or contact Showtec directly.
New Versioning Scheme
We have changed the version number scheme to semantic versioning, meaning Lampy version numbers will look like “x.y.z. (aabbcc32)”
X is the major version number which will be increased only when major changes are introduced (such as Multicell and the UI-Rewrite in v2).
Y is the minor version number which will be increased when features are added.
Z is the “Bugfix” portion of the version number which will be increased when the release only contains bugfixes or as we see fit.
The text in the brackets points us to a specific version of the code an update has been built with.

  break tracking
Posted by: Le Kafteur - 08-08-2023, 03:30 PM - Forum: Chimp General Questions - No Replies

Someone can explain how to use the "break tracking" in the cuelist column because it doesn't do nothing for me..
It should do : "will prevent any changes made to cues prior to this cue to track into and after the break cue. "

  Resync button for speed master etc
Posted by: Matrix ES - 05-08-2023, 09:53 PM - Forum: Chimp Feature Requests - No Replies

It would be greatly appreciated if a Resync button were to be added this way you don’t constantly need to alter the bpm…

In addition to a Resync it would be amazing to have a command or an option to manually enter the bom

  DTS XR2000 SPOT CMY No Light with Software Version 2
Posted by: tom@akofx - 23-07-2023, 05:27 PM - Forum: LAMPY General Questions - Replies (3)

After updating to the latest software release of the Showtec Lampy 20 2U it was not possible to switch connected DTS XR2000 SPOT CMY to a light output.
I went through all (!) parameters of one or more XR2000 several times - and changed all (!) parameters (using the jog wheels). Pan and tilt work, but a light output was not possible.
Remarkably, the highlight function at the top of the toolbar worked successfully.
(So the highlight function knows the dimmer channels of the XR2000 and can also control them - why not using the jog wheels?)
I then went back to software release 1.0.5 - loaded several DTS XR2000 SPOT CMY and on the first try... light output was there!
In the software version 2 of the Showtec Lampy, a few values were displayed for Intensity - which I didn't really know what to do with (the value dimmer was offered twice, for example - why? Actually even 3x with values that are not understandable.) ...
