    Release 2017.34. I have bundled Keith's xLightsBatchRenderer.exe with this windows install., This program has not yet been ported to either lInux or MAC. This program allows you to render all of your sequences. This is useful if you upgrade from an older version and want all of you. Again thanks to our development group who keep making xLights better and better.

    The batch re-render is a good addition, but does it need to re-open xlights for each re-render? Could it be changed to open xlights once , re-render all the files then close? no biggy if it can't

    Thats coming in .35 ... it will be built into xlights rather than as a separate program and it will support all platforms ... my quick and dirty little utility is going mainstream thanks to Dan.

    First and foremost thankyou xlights team for your efforts and dedication truly amazing ! I have an ask but am not needy , so if can or cant be done not fussed but after another recent event of corrupting a rasberry pi . Just wondering in critical times audience outside ready too see show and we are in strife ! I know I can grab laptop open xlights and my sequence turn on light output and press play will get lights happening . Is it viable or possible to have a replay button added for this type of emergency to keep audience happy or should I look at using X schedule as backup plan as never tinkered with .
    Thanks heaps guys

    There is already a play loop button. You just need to choose how much of the song to play

    Thanks, I haven't updated since last year, so want to make sure I get the most recent stable for the upgrade.
