Sequence priority xschedule

Evening all,

I must be missing something obvious. I've read a few forum posts already indicating that a higher priority overrides a lower ones when there are two scheduled sequences to play (one ambient between shows and the show one). However even though the first time I seemed to get it right, every time I launch xschedule it seems like the actual light show never plays.

The ambient one is a Small 30s looping with a schedule at priority 5 and the main show has a priority 10 every 30 mins. It's not set to gracefully interrupt - I just want it to interrupt. Any thoughts?

Alternatively I guess I could make an individual schedule for each timeslot..

I really need to make a better patch and push it hard for .24. I think I did reintroduce the original problem. But this is gonna really hurt xSchedule users that do anything interesting at all.
I could also put up an xSchedule exe I suppose. Then you could say if it fixes your problem.

I'd be happy to test it if you released it, but otherwise I'll just test my workaround tonight and use that.

@merryoncherry only one issue I've noticed - the first sequence doesn't play but the repeats do.

For example I set my sequence to play from 20:05 every half hour. The 20:05 one doesn't play but the 20:35 onwards does.

My workaround is just to start the show half an hour earlier so the 20:05 one is triggered.

I'm starting the application around 19:15 (trying to auto start it when the PC boots up).

The background show starts around 19:30 I think (will check in a few hours) and then the show is scheduled for 20:05 start but doesn't.

Now it's scheduled for a 19:35 start and it doesn't play then but plays at 20:05. I'll check again this evening and make sure I'm not imagining something but I'm fairly sure that's the case.
