    Looking to buy a pro system from WPS. If anyone has a spare members invite available it would be very much appreciated!
     
  15. I’ve been researching firing systems for months after buying a Firefly and being disappointed with the results. Cobra seems to be the popular choice, but lack of local script execution seems like one more thing waiting to screw up a show. I’ve decided on WPS and would appreciate a members invite if anyone has a spare.

    Not sure what you mean?

    When you arm the system the remote sends the script out to all modules and then the remote just sends a timecode, the modules themselves run the script.
     
  17. Maybe I misunderstood the documentation or the docs are incorrect? From the scripting manual on the Cobra website:

    Note:The 18R2 fires all cues in realtime while executing. Cobra uses a proprietary gridfire overlapping technology which sends two separate overlapped 1-18 grids across two channels. The grids are sent as pulses that overlap with previous commands such to maintain high reliability at the fastest 1/10th second firing rate. This same technology also allows manual firing of cues while scripts are executing.

    oh, interesting interpretation. @cobrafiringsystems can you clear this up?
     
  19. This changed in 3.x firmware and later. Now (for the first loaded script), the script is loaded on each module upon Arming, and everything just passes around a heartbeat / time packet of sorts.

    You can still shoot manually over the top of a script.

    If you load more than one script onto your remote (there is documentation on the website regarding how to do this), it reverts to the 2.x and prior script format with live firing and the older timing restrictions, as referenced in-part in the quoted post above.

    Thanks!
     
  20. In 3.0.3+ firmware, the COBRA 18R2 uploads the script into the modules. This allows for unlimited channel / cue firing - there is no restriction. You can also manually fire while a script is running. Our grid firing technology also supports manually firing multiple cues at the same time. It's the best of both worlds. The Control Panel UI also has a manual firing feature that shows you current script position, and previous and next event to fire including time and description.

    @rd206, I am sorry you made this decision based on mis-information
     
    Jon and Donnie like this.
