  1. Hi there, I was just into the manual and some threads in this forum, but not getting closer to a solution. We have a pemanent installation with one production pc and 3 watchpax 60. The production pc need to run the show, as we use multichannel via Dante Card for Audio-Out. On Page 192, last Topic it says that the production software accepts only the full path to a showfile to load. So none of the commands for the autostart.txt can be used, right ? Later the Show should be started on the production pc with AMX, (which is well documented (will be right back if I stuck there)). Kind regards, Martin
  2. hi dear I want to make the show run automatically. I registered it in the Windows Startup Program and checked until Watchout appeared. But I wonder if it will be possible to play right here. Assuming there is no operator. I looked through the manual countless times and couldn't figure out where to put the parameter variable. Of course, if the time code is received from the outside, it will be executed immediately. But I would like to know if it is possible to run it alone. thanks regards
  3. hi dear Make watchout play whenever windows starts Can you set it up? and what i want is watchout I want it to play as soon as the window is launched. and the play continues I want to use a function that turns off at a set time. We turn on the power at 9 o'clock and at the same time the watchout run window appears. It was possible until it opened. But not play. I wonder how to make it play automatically. thanks regards
  4. This is the example autostart.txt script text-file from WATCHPAX. It can be used as a starting point for creating an autostart file for stand-alone start of a WATCHOUT Display computer or cluster. Please also see the 5.5.1 Release Notes : http://www.dataton.com/files/watchout/support/Release_Notes_5.5.1.html A script named autostart.txt, located in the same folder as the WATCHOUT application, will run automatically when the display software is launched. This can contain display computer protocol commands, which will then be applied automatically every time the software is started. A new "Edit Startup Script" command has been added to the WATCHOUT display software, accessible locally and from the production software (through the Remote Access command). This provides a shortcut to editing the startup command script file, which can be used to define initial settings for a display computer or cluster. This can be used to load shows automatically, and similar functions available in the WATCHOUT display computer protocol. A new "Re-launch" command has been added to the WATCHOUT display software, accessible locally and from the production software (through the Remote Access command). This is useful after editing the startup script in order to see the effect of your changes. /jonas autostart.txt ---------------------------------- ; ; autostart.txt ; ; This is an example script file on how to use different commands to control the ; start-up and other behavior of the WATCHPAX. ; ; To enable a command simply remove the semicolon sign at the start of the line in front of the command. ; To disable a command just add a semi-colon at the beginning of the line in front of the command. ; Please remember that you can only have one command on each line. ; ; See each individual command in the WATCHOUT User's Guide for more details. ; ; ------------------------------------------------------------------ ; ; This is a small example on a scrip that automatically loads and starts a show named "MyShow" ; ; Note: If the show contains of more then one computer then this script should only run on ; the computer designated as the cluster master and not on any of the other members of the cluster. ; The cluster master will automatically send the load command to all members of the cluster. ; ; authenticate 1 ; setLogoString "The show will begin shortly" ; delay 5000 ; load "MyShow" ; wait ; run ; ; ------------------------------------------------------------------ ; ; These are some examples on how to set a fixed IP number on the WATCHOUT computer. ; You only need to run this script once.
