After my teamviewer fills up (We can have 25 viewers) we are setting up a second teamviewer for the overflow.

Second; Release 3.3.0
This is the release where we upgrade from the wxwidgets 2.9.5 library to wxwidgets 3.0.0. What does this mean? It means you may notice effects playing about a little faster, it gives us some abilities we didn't have before. Mostly, it is the plumbing and you wont notice anything.

This release has many changes from Don Julien. Thanks Don for keeping the flame alive!
some new meteor effects.
some new movements on text

try meteor with icicle with overlay clicked (checkbox below fit to time) with palette checked


3.3.0 -Enhancement (djulien): vixen 2.x routine as picture
-Enhancement (djulien): add checkbox to Effects panel to inhibit canvas clear before effect (for layers across models)
-Enhancement (djulien): allow cancelled schedule to re-run that same day
-Enhancement (djulien): show serial outbuf overflow amount
-Enhancement (djulien): add a couple of icicle options to Meteors
-Enhancement (djulien): add wavey left-to-right up/down option for text
-Enhancement (djulien): added additional format options for date count-down
-Enhancement (djulien): pass controller responses to plug-in (in-coming or round-trip data); internal change only - should not affect standard usage, but listed here just in case
-Enhancement (djulien): add /noauto command line option to prompt for auto-run (allows easier schedule override)
-Bug fix/enhancement? (djulien): show channel# being tested during Chase test
-Bug fix/enhancement? (djulien): continue execution after comm output overflow in case controller can catch up

thanks

OK, thanks Sean. I am still getting the lay of the land (which is why I was so interested in it). I will be sure to check it out!

Thank you! As a newbie I appreciate you creating a tutorial starting from square one. Sometimes it feels like I've jumped into the middle of a novel without having any of the character background. Not complaining mind you, I just don't have the experience others have so I spend more time piecing things together because I don't know all the assumptions. Thanks again, m
