New to DMX but want to give it a try..

posted Jan 22, 2013 20:30:11 by DeaneGeiken
So I am new to this whole DMX thing but really want to incorporate it into our crew flights when we play. I have read most of the topics in this forum but can someone (in layman's terms) point out what equipment one would need to get started and how it all hooks to the Artemis game for use? Many thanks!

Sounds like you should set it to A011 and add information for channels 11, 12, 13 in the "hits" and "damage" sections of the DMX file.

Mark, the Coding is what is listed above. I am trying to incorporate this light into the mix of the Chauvet and faux Chauvet. And yes, Joe is correct. The device does not color mix but rather sprays colors (Red, Blue, Green shapes out of a faceted half sphere.) And correct, my goal is to have this work only for when the ship is taking damage or hits something so I was wondering how to *exclude* it from the docking, shields, and all normal conditions and *only* have it trigger on the damage/hit something events. The specification page shown above is for the device I am talking about. It doesn't use dip switches but has instead a LED readout. Thanks!

ok - Try setting the strobe to A011 and adding the following to the normal event (since its fast to check)

<setvalue index="10" value="0" change="0"/> <!-- strobe value of strobe -->
<setvalue index="11" value="255" change="0"/> <!-- red value of strobe -->
<setvalue index="12" value="255" change="0"/> <!-- green value of strobe -->
<setvalue index="13" value="255" change="0"/> <!-- blue value of strobe -->
<setvalue index="14" value="0" change="0"/> <!-- motor value of strobe -->
<setvalue index="15" value="0" change="0"/> <!-- FX value of strobe -->

You may need to address this separately due to its oddities. In fact, since you only want it on during hit/damage events, you'll need to.

Address it separately? Meaning separate set of coding for just the hit/damage events. I will try this this afternoon when I get home from work. Many thanks!
I really hope that when 2.0 comes out, the DMX coding is not so different that I will have to start all over from scratch to get my nifty cool lights to work... :)

As in you've got a separate set of commands for the Chauvet and the Faux Chauvet, so you'll need the strobe on another set of channels with its own commands. Shouldn't be too bad :)

As far as I know, 2.0 won't affect DMX at all, save potentially allowing multiple bridges to each have their own DMX rigs going in a multi bridge game. Hopefully there will be more triggers, but that shouldn't affect these files too much.

I think :)

Mark, that was perfect. The lights stayed on in Red/green/blue on normal status at all times even when it was taking hits and damage. Now... would I add that code to the end of each bit of event code for hit/damage? And to get the strobe to activate, change this
<setvalue index="10" value="0" change="0"/> <!-- strobe value of strobe -->
to this:
<setvalue index="10" value="6" change="0"/> <!-- strobe value of strobe -->

and to get the motor to move, change this
<setvalue index="14" value="0" change="0"/> <!-- motor value of strobe -->
to this:
<setvalue index="14" value="255" change="0"/> <!-- motor value of strobe -->

I am assuming the FX value is for the activation to sound, correct?


And just how much do you know about 2.0? Inquiring minds want to know!

Right, channel 10 anywhere from 6-249 are valid strobe inputs, and the motor channel is kinda interesting. If you just want spinning, use values 128-255 (slow to fast). Values 1-127 actually specify a particular position, which is kinda cool. The fx channel is an oddball - it can kinda do anything, but only one at a time. I'd leave it at 0.

You'll need to add those channel commands to damage and hit events for them to do anything, and set the rgb channels in the normal event to 0.

As far as 2.0, I'd check out Thom's threads in the news section - he's more up to date than I :) I can say he mentioned getting multi bridge DMX support straightened out at one point, but u don't know if that's happened yet.

Could I just take out the code in the Normal event instead of changing the rgb channels to 0? Seeing that I don't even want it to do anything during the normal (non-combat) events?

This is what I coded for each of the "hit/take damage" events.... Care to take a looks and see if anything looks wrong or iffy? I am considering bringing down the green and blue lights (to like 100) a bit to lessen the effect of making it look like a disco.... Thanks!

Well shoot... Nothing happened when I tried it out.... now I did not have the other lights hooked up but the strobe did not respond even when I ran through a minefield. Am I missing something? This is what I have coded.... It repeats of course to the end of the game DMX file.

Well, I'd probably leave in the code for Normal (just set to 0) so that once you're done careening off of asteroids it stops flashing spinning. Theoretically it should, but if there's no command to return to 0 it might not. In fact, I think it pretty specifically won't.

The code looks good, honestly. Try setting strobe and motor to 0, just get the lights to flash.

Gave it a a try with all the situation normal set back in and the motor and strobe set back to 0. Other lights work well but the strobe stays on with RGB shining like a disco! However, the strobe did not turn off at anytime except when the ship got destroyed. It did not blink or strobe at all when I hit asteriods or mines. (maybe it did, but was so fast it was not noticeable? The other lights did respond as directed. Currently this is what I have (minus anything that does not have the strobe coding in it).

Wait...just got to thinking.... all of the values to the normal conditions should be "0" and the strobe value of the light should be "6". That way normal for the strobe is dark, but then the light will activate and strobe when the ship hits something/takes damage.... is my logic correct here?

And after a test... that is what did it!! (but without setting the strobe to "6") Thanks for the help and advise guys! Now to get it set up on Sunday for a game and video it to show it off! Up next will be to put the lights in some cool Sci-fi looking gear.
