    can someone who has lsp create a simple sequence with 2 or 3 rgb strings. If you could do a chase on each string in some primary colors and then send me the msq file. a video of the sequence would be even better.


    I am in the process of reverse engineering the msq file. i need a simple file to make this easier.

    I dont believe the new LSP 3 will be unable to read a lsp 2 file. If that were true everyones sequences would have to all be done over. I know LSP 3 will have its own xml file and maybe someday i will produce that also.


    LOR S3 has new features in their S3 xml files. LOR S3 reads S2 files with no issues.


    so, i will go ahead and try to make a lsp 2 msq file. Maybe one of you could ask on the LSP forum if the LSP 3 will be unable to read LSP 2 files. I would be surprised if that were true. but who knows?

    I would believe that LSP 2.5 would convert your V2 files to work in V2.5 on opening but would not be able to read V2 files natively as this has been a path used by sequencers in the past. The XML file in LSP v2.5 is being reworked to be more efficient and possibly the controllers may have its own XML file so anything done for the V2 XML file will most probably not work for V2.5. But then this is not confirmed

    got your file, thanks!. Your file is a 5262 line xml. The previous "simple" 100 rgb pixel string was 21,500 line xml.
    Trying to find the minimum content for the xml file to produce is fun. There is no documentation for the LSP 2, 2.5 or 3.0 XML file. To be fair, there is no official documentation about vixen or LOR xml files. They were just easier because they dont have so much content.


    ill keep plugging away. I am getting less time now as there is a big project i am working on at Oracle that i need to get done by june 18th. I get done as much as i can.


    thanks again
