    Question for the creators

    hey man,
    I just now are getting ready to program the FB. I was wondering a few things.

    Is there a way that I can program like a "demo" feature on the FB so when I'm at shows I can select that and have the front left lower, front right raise, back left raise, back right lower.

    if I want to control cathodes, what do I need? a cathode needs 12Volts. also I'm looking to control an actuator also.

    Also, how can I make the air ride fill as soon as the carpc is turned on? or do I have to wait till windows boots up to have MDX startup?

    Thanks

    steve

    Sure. Are you using Version 2.0 or MDX?

    You need a relay for each device. Cathode or actuator, same thing as long as the load is under 25 amps.

    That means you're using Version MDX. Nick will be along shortly to help you with it specifically - again, I just do hardware.

    Hi.

    For your demo you want basically an "animation" or a set sequence of movements when the button is clicked to show off the various options correct?

    If so yes this is doable with MDX which is the version you are using (configuration ends in *.xml)

    The Fusion Brain does not work independantly from the PC. So once the PC boots, there is a default state for the MDX program that is settable. So as soon as the PC boots and MDX loads, it can turn on the relays for you and fill it up. With a properly optimized system this can be 10 to 20 seconds. Standby is obviously faster.

    with the new Version(.skin) what's the difference? also where can I find a simple definition of each actions? for both old(*.XML) and new (*.skin)?

    I want this cause I have very very very basic C++ programming. I have some VB and alot HTML....

    Just trying to stay ahead for any future configs I might want to do.

    Thanks

    Steve

    you have it backwards. MDX is the newest and uses xml. Version 2 is almost not supported anymore and uses the skin file.
