A couple of weeks ago I decided to write a replacement for da_DMX and da_E131. Maintaining 2 programs that were the same except for the data method seemed a waste of effort. The new program is called da_Tester and will be available on the da_Share site. It can send data to E1.31 controllers as well as DMX controllers via a DMX Open or DMX Pro USB dongle. It is Windows only - I don't do Mac. In E1.31 mode, it can still send data to 12 universes max, but now they don't have to be contiguous. ie, You can send to universes 1, 2, 3, 58, 654, 63999, 14, 555 etc, up to 12 of your choosing. There's also a basic universe mode where you select the start and end universe like in da_E131. In both modes you can enable/disable the universes from a drop down menu on the tool bar. Something new is snapshots. This allows you to take a static snapshot of the current data output and save it. You can then select them later as a data source instead of the various faders or chaser functions. There is also a status bar on the main page with some of the main settings shown in case you don't have the settings window open. The status bar in the E1.31 section of the settings window also shows your computer's IP address and the gateway IP address. The other change is that the fader and chaser sections maintain their own settings when you flip between them. This means that you can set up the RGB, All (was Single), Chaser and Faders independently and select them by clicking in those areas. The currently selected data source for the main page is highlighted in orange so you know which one is being sent to the output. The old programs had a few long standing bugs which have been fixed in da_Tester. The settings have also been put back into their own window so you can adjust them even when on the faders page. The first release should be this weekend. Please let me know if you have any questions or feature suggestions.
