Alert #1: Windows users: If you have suddenly started getting an error message: "Requested address is a broadcast address but flag is not set", try setting a different port by editing the port number in RemoteSign.ini Try something between 50603 and 65000 instead of 50601. See the Troubleshooting page for details.

Alert #2: If you were trying order a RemoteSign ESP, please try again, the Paypal forms have been updated.

Auto Play Sounds

Each RemoteSign file can define a sound file that is to be played when the file gets loaded. If a sound file is defined and exists then it will be played automatically when the .rsf file is loaded. It makes no difference if the file is loaded automatically on start up of RemoteSign or the result of a {LOAD} command from another computer or as a result of an automatic file load sequence.

In order to define a sound file to auto load do the following:

  • Place the sound file in the folder you want, ('Sounds' folder is highly recommended)
  • Open the text entry screen (press Enter from the main RemoteSign screen)
  • Check the box 'Show advanced settings'
  • Check the box 'On loading, play'
  • Click the 'Browse' button and select the desired sound file
  • Save the file by clicking 'Save'

The 'Play' button can be used to preview the sound file you selected.

In order to ensure that .rsf files that you create are as portable as possible, it is best to place sound files that are to be auto loaded into the 'Sounds' folder in the RemoteSign installation folder. This allows the files to be defined without a full path. (Which that may not exist on another computer.)

If RemoteSign cannot find the sound file as specified, it will look for the sound file in the 'Sounds' folder contained in the RemoteSign installation directory. This is what makes it possible to create portable .rsf files that refer to sound files without any folder information.

This feature is available in RemoteSign version 2.0 and higher
