Version 3 has been released!

RemoteSign Sequencer version history

Unless otherwise stated, newer versions do not need to be registered again.

Ways to upgrade RemoteSign Sequencer:

  • You can simply download and install RemoteSign the same location. A registered copy will remain registered.
  • You can also run Fetcher.exe (in RemoteSign folder since version 2.4.15) and double click the Sequencer.exe to get the new executable. (Script files will not be updated.)

2021-04-18 V3.0.26
  • Fixed a bug that was not updating script references in IF commands when a script was deleted
  • Added new command: 'Random Delay' to allow a random delay in a script. Upper and lower limit of the delay can be set.
  • Added ability to include a counter within a data text fragment name. This allows text fragments to be used based on counter values.
  • Fixed single step scripts which were no longer working due to stopping the script first when starting a script.
  • Removed the delay control for comment commands
  • Added a button to launch RemoteSign from RemoteSign edit screen, visible if RemoteSign Address is local machine
  • Improved handling of bad counter numbers in counter macros

2020-12-09 V3.0.15

2020-10-25 V3.0
New features
  • Support added for recording scripts on RemoteSigns, with dedicated controls for recording, starting, and stopping scripts on connected RemoteSigns.
  • Support added for new commands: {RECORD}, {APPEND}, {SCR?}, {SCR}, {RUNSCRIPT}, {DIR}, and {NTP}
  • Time macros are no longer resolved in Sequencer when recording. This allows them to be resolved at run-time on the RemoteSign.

    • Fast recording = the ability to download the commands generated by a Sequencer script at high speed instead of waiting for the script to play in real-time.
    • Synch - NTP - allows automatic substitution of an {NTP} command instead of sending current local time when synching time.
    • Skip {RECORD} - so one does not inadvertently record over downloaded scripts.
