I have two lights on our eaves that don't really form a visible part of the presentation so I'm wondering if they can just be disabled in XLights? I also have created a web for halloween using 19 strings but there are points where they double up. I'd like to disable the duplicates as well if I can.

I have a model where I was lazy and hung a couple of extra nodes out the back as the wires didn't reach, so in the custom model I just skiped their node numbers.
EG if the 3rd node was hangin out the back I would number the nodes in the model: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, etc

There are several ways to achieve this. Challenge is the best way is very dependent on circumstances including where the blanks are required. The show player you are using. The controller you are using.

I'm using Ron's Holiday 4 Universe Controllers and XLights.

I'm going to count out the pixels so I know which ones they are. Maybe I can just create a custom groups that exclude those spans of pixels and then do nothing with them. If I need to I can lay out the sections all as single strands in XLights.
