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.

Stuck cells

What are stuck cells ?

Just like the real mechanical signs, sometimes a character cell gets stuck and does not display properly. Here is an example:

Can I control the number of Stuck Cells ?

Yes, if you have a registered copy, you can control how many stuck cells there are, from zero to 255.
Simply select how many you want in the control screen... click the up arrow for more or down for less...

If you are using an unregistered copy, you cannot control the number of stuck cells. With time the program will increase the number of stuck cells.

Stuck cells are assigned randomly on the sign.

If two copies of RemoteSign are being used together, each copy will display their own respective number of stuck cells. An unregistered copy will ignore remote commands to change the number of stuck cells.
