WHAT IS IT?
My contribution to those few of us that still hold on to (and love) our aging Stage Kits.
This is not an original work, but rather a continuation of SK Lightworks by Andrew Mussey (http://sklightworks.com/).
I started with the unreleased beta source code from his Github page and well, it should be obvious that there's been tons of work done. Brand new GUI, overhauled code (75% or more is mine) and many imprevements and tweaks.

This could be something I would use with RB4. I"m guessing it would work with 4x daisy chained light and 2x strobes all at once? Will the program require a full time light operator to sit at the computer or can it be programmed?

I don't see why it wouldn't work with daisy chained kits, but obviously all pods will mirror the one. I can only control the one plugged in as a controller.
As far as behavior, the initial release will do what the original program did. You can use any of the buttons you see, which let you set each color to do a circle pattern, a random pattern, a laser light type of pattern, or turn on all LEDs. You can also manually turn on and off each LED. You can manually control the strobe light and fog.
You can also create and run scripts...but in the years I've used the old version I never did because you gotta create the script and that is tedious. But if you do, you can loop the script, you can have multiple scripts, etc.

I kinda spent all weekend working on this...and well, things happened :brosius:

OP is updated with a new preview screenshot (click to see it big!). Initial release sometime this week. Should be good right now but I'm too tired to do a good and thorough test. If this interests you, stay tuned :)

Man, the stage kit is one of the things I wish would have gotten (or two/three/four) when they were being put on clearance everywhere but I never did. I distinctly remember seeing them for cheap too. Oh well.

Initial release is up. I meant to have it up before but new work schedule and lots of changes to make. It should be in excellent condition. Got plans to make scripting easier in the future, but this is it for a while, got to take care of my other projects before I return to this. If you actually use it, would love to hear feedback.

Just noticed this program today, tried it out and everything works great.  

One of the foggers I have is having some nozzle issues and this will be just what I needed to run some tests and figure out what the problem is.  Nice to be able to test everything out in the workshop without having to setup the xbox.

There have been times I wished I could turn on just the fogger (halloween party comes to mind), this should do the trick there too.

 

Well done!

I'm officially ending support for the program. It's been obvious, but putting the fine point on it.
