Welcome to my SMS Messaging App V3.4.1 for all to use. UPDATED 15 Dec 17 - To V3.4.1 - Added a Bulk SMS message box so you can send an SMS to all users that have SMS'ed a message to the display (useful to thank them and to ask them to vote). Added a check so if a bad word is detected when using the Blacklist it will then check the White list to see if its in there and if so then display. Added inbuilt Scheduler to turn the Messaging App on and off. 30 Jul 17 - To V3.4 - Added new Display Message Form and moved the Display messages to this form. Also added a message textbox so you can add unlimited number of messages to display (randomly), each new line will be a separate message. I want to make it clear that no matter what Software you sequence your lights with you can still use this application with a simple install of Vixen in the background and this application running in the foreground. So you can continue to use xlights as your main and have Vixen installed to use my app. I have included a video that shows how to set up Vixen for just this use. Quick look at my Matrix Message Board in action (its a P10 7 x 1 panels) Setup Vixen and Message demo. - You will need a Twilio Account and get a mobile phone number off them. It's only $6 per month so I just buy one for Nov and Dec, so it doesn't cost that much. - Works with Vixen 3.3u2 and above. - Can change text settings. - Can send an instant message to your Display. - Can send a countdown to a specified date message to your Display. - If there are any issues installing it then please see below as you may need to add an exception in your virus software.

This is the best way to use the app if you don't have a dedicated Matrix for this as you can start the Messaging app when you Matrix is not in use with your Sequences. - Customise the Text message with Font, direction, Position, line number and colour for each line of Text (including Random colour selection) - Add multiple matrix/mega trees and direct local messages to selected matrix for display. - Display a Countdown (for example: number of days to Christmas or to any date entered) - Use Vixen 3 Sequences - Filter messages with a Whitelist or Blacklist to ensure no profanities are displayed. Firstly the following application is NOT supported by the Vixen Dev team so please do not create tickets or contact them for issues and information, please PM myself if you have any questions. The software enables the audience to SMS (as long as you have an account with Twilio to SMS with mobile number) a message to be displayed on your Matrix or Megatree with various effects. All the audience will do is send an SMS to the Twilio phone number that was provided to you add the text to the display within only a few seconds. There is also the option to use a Blacklist or Whitelist to ensure dirty words are not displayed. Vixen Messaging can also add sequences that you created in Vixen for the Matrix and can be used while no SMS messages are being sent from the audience. There is also many options for the Text to be displayed such as Font, direction, speed and position. Important Notes before installation: I have Trend Virus software and it thinks Vixen Messaging contains a virus. This is not the case however you may need to add the "Install file", the "Program Files\Vixen Messaging folder" and the "c:\users\xxxxx\appdata\roaming\Vixen Messaging folder" to the exclusion list of your Virus program. Cheers and I hope you enjoy.
