Very simple tutorial on how to get your work from the Fusion Control Centre MDX Configurator to the Fusion Control Centre Uber MDX Edition software to be utilized by the Fusion Brain.
First complete your configuration file. Make sure it contains graphical elements so you can see it, as well as Fusion Brain instances and the appropriate I/O channels. For help setting these items up, please refer to the other tutorials linked to on the main help page found by clicking the "Help" tab on the top of any page.
When ready to save your configuration file, click the save icon on the top toolbar.
After clicking the save icon, the save file dialogue prompt will appear. This is a standard Windows dialogue box and can be navigated as any other.
Notice the default file name and extension. The XML file "FusionConfiguration.xml" is the only file that MDX looks for when opening. You are free to name the file anything you want for archival purposes, but it must be named "FusionConfiguration.xml" for Fusion Control Centre Uber MDX Edition to read in and parse all the configuration information. After choosing the correct saving directory and entering the correct filename, click "Save" in the bottom right of the save dialogue box.
After saving, confirm that you see this popup. If this becomes visible and fades away, it means that the file was successfully saved to the specified location. If an error message appears, please follow the instructions in the error or look in the help section found by clicking the "Help" tab at the top of any website page.
Now to navigate to where you installed Fusion Control Centre Uber MDX Edition. If you allowed for the default paths from the installer you will find it is "[root]:\Program Files\Fusion Control Centre Uber MDX Edition\MDX\" as shown to the right.
There you will see current configuration file. Notice how it must be in the same root directory as the main program's *.exe file. This cannot be changed. The Configurator automatically saves all dependencies neatly into the directory "Content" which contains images, functions, and fonts. Copy the file you saved previously to this location. Since the file will have the same name, either rename the current configuration file first, or archive it as a backup. The new file will overwrite it.
Alternatively, you can save the confguration file directly from the Configurator to this location and it will overwrite the current file saving you trouble of copying the file.
And by double clicking the icon for Fusion Control Centre Uber MDX Edition you will open up the program. The screenshot on the right is a screenshot of the skin shown in the first image in the configurator, now running in MDX itself. The text labels are brought to life, the multi-images at the top are working to show the current gear position, and communicating with the Fusion Brain.
