Sujet Linking Pads
hrdnxPRO InfinityMember since 2011
Good day peeps
Don't know if I missed this one
Is there a way to have the pads for both decks linked? So that when I change pad page on one deck the other deck changes as well?

Very possible, [a few ways] how do you change pads now?

Via the Skin dropdown menu
Would also be nice to have a shortcut (button) to turn it off if necessary

I'll experiment, I'll reply tomorrow.

can be scripted too...9 pad pages linked just for a common Big one

Please elaborate,
I started with this [as a starter]
param_equal "`deck 1 pad_page`" "`deck 2 pad_page`"

but haven't thought further

@locodog LOL - it's once more during one of my extreme delusional and improbable tests ^^

it seems there is no other way... but builder or alike!!!
There is no simple way & it's hightly experimental to use builder in a skin and not recommended

this does strange things but not what is wanted
deck all pad_page

as well as
pad_page & get_text "`pad_page`" & deck all pad_page

the builder way :
pad_page & get_text "deck all pad_page '`pad_page`'" & effect_string builder 1 & effect_active builder & set string1 1

works ok
I used things like that in an extra floating pad window, but a custom button works

but every pad and padshift and pressure & color needs the same kind of hack
It's not easy and not everything can be done

Right I think I've got it, just a question; what skin do you use [if you use several just list them all]

*edit* ah, whatever, if you use the default skin this will work fine, if you use a skin with more that 20 custom buttons it'll need tweaking
@Bigbaromilly, you'll like this... :-)


deck master repeat_start "rsiLinkPads" ? on & deck master repeat_stop "rsiLinkPads" : deck master repeat_start "rsiLinkPads" 100ms & get_text "`deck 1 pad_page`" & param_cast 'text' & custom_button_name 22 & get_text "`deck 2 pad_page`" & param_cast 'text' & custom_button_name 24 & param_equal "`custom_button_name 21`" "`custom_button_name 22`" ? param_equal "`custom_button_name 23`" "`custom_button_name 24`" ? nothing : get_text "`deck 2 pad_page`" & param_cast 'text' & custom_button_name 23 & get_text "`deck 2 pad_page`" & param_cast 'text' & custom_button_name 21 & custom_button_name 21 & param_cast 'text' & deck 1 pad_page : get_text "`deck 1 pad_page`" & param_cast 'text' & custom_button_name 21 & get_text "`deck 1 pad_page`" & param_cast 'text' & custom_button_name 23 & custom_button_name 23 & param_cast 'text' & deck 2 pad_page :

It was actually the sneaky "hack" using custom button names to save strings that I thought you'd like.
Thing to note, the custom button doesn't have to appear on the skin, you can just create them at will.
