Unfortunately the Visualiser simulation is pretty basic. Prisms are not simulated AFAIK, nor are fades between colours etc. The default gobos are represented as numbers. If you want your own you need to create them. See this document: http://www.avolitesdownload.com/Downloads/Downloads/Documents/Vis...

Works for me on XP, though I doubt there is a problem.

Sorry to state the obvious, but you mention pressing the 'playback a shape' option, but not actually selecting a shape (ie circle) from the following menu.

Does it still not work when you do this?

I think what you are seeing is normal. It is just because you have the chase fading. When you stop the chase part way through the fade, the Next button will initially 'complete' the fade. Therefore it will seem as if nothing has changed when it snaps to the end of that step. If you stopped the chase...

I could not repeat the tapping twice problem. Tried it a few times, both after stopping chases and with 'unlinked' chases.
Are you able to repeat it? If so, post details of chase type etc.

Erm. Dunno!

This is one for Olie.

Pls post your system specs - OS, memory, CPU.

I have a dongle, so I can't confirm if it's related to not having one, if you get my drift. You might want to try a wipeall first (do this in the sim in the same way you would on the real desk)

FYI the technical fault was key reading was set to 16bit in the software whereas the hardware only reads in 8bit. This existed in all 2000 builds AFAIK and I consider this to be the most important reason for upgrading. I do not understand what makes this problem suddenly appear for some users (as it...

I did ask about the change in STOP functionality, but forgot all about it. Will chase it up - I'm not sure why it was removed - was very handy, mainly because it was a bigger, more accessible button IMO. Current solution is 'Chase Control'/ Forward/Back sequence buttons. Will see if I can repeat the...

You can only use the 'demo theatre' without the dongle. This will let you try out the software, but you can't set up your own fixtures/patch.

You are correct about patching the zone on one handle and the fixtures on individual handles. I run the zone in full mode (with smoothing off) for full control.

Are you seeing random changes to roller page 3, or occasional flashes of HTP channels/odd numbered channels entering the programmer on its own?

Sounds to me related to the key reading fault in 2000 software. This is fixed in 2004.

This may be the solution (& it's loads better anyway!)

For Pearl?

With the latest soft you can remember the last time entered by staying in the Palette (Focus button) menu. You can also set a master time from Palette/Options.

Wierd!

Sounds to me like using shows from 2000 soft on 2004 or vice-versa.
Which software are you running?

I have not experienced any slowdown. I have cues on almost all PB's/pages/facets.
What %free is shown in the LCD display?
Was the show you are using patched/programmed from scratch under 2004v1 or did it originate from 2000 soft?

(Note that there is no HDD in the Pearl)
