MagicQ head file?

Postby dlights » Sat Apr 19, 2008 6:04 pm

Is there an updated Head file for MagicQ out there. The one that Chamsys supplies seems to be innaccurate at least in regards to where some of the effects are mapped in the encoders and such. The one on the Arkaos website is from like 4 years ago... or does anyone know how I can adjust the head file?

i noticed this too and raised it with the guys at chamsys - its due to the newer arkaos releases obviously doing things differently from the original personallity build (but certainly not 4 years old i'm sure..) But.. to edit the personallity to the way you want it is very easy using the head edit function i believe it is.
Personally i have also used this to change the way locate function works so movie becomes the default - but there are allsorts of tweaks possible so the desk setup suits your style.
Check out the site for manuals or for more tricks and updates

Yes I raised this Question with the Chamsys and Arkaos guys, too.

If anyone spends the time to make a really nice head file, please post it for the community (if I get time, I might even do so myself).
