MadMapper Registred Users can now remotely deauthorize MadMapper online from the Yourspace page.

The Serial REMOTE RESET can be done only ONCE A YEAR.
After all possible de authorizations for the current year,  the end user won’t be able to activate MadMapper before one Year.

The Standard Deauthorization procedure remains the same:

If you need to authorize Modul8 on a different computer and you have already used authorizations you must de-authorize Modul8 from one of the computers BEFORE

The Standard Deauthorization process remains within the MadMapper software.
You can deauthorize MadMapper as follows:

1. Open MadMapper, click at the MadMapper Menu (beside the apple icon)
2. Choose from the list ” De-authorize MadMapper…”
3. You will have then a window asking your admin password from your computer, if you do not have a password then click OK.
4. The deauthorisation will finish and a new window will appear on MadMapper : “The authorization was successfully removed”.
Click ‘OK’ or wait, MadMapper will quit and you will be able to install MadMapper on a new machine with the same licence.

MadMapper has been update to version 1.6.3 .
If you are a registered user you can download it from the yourspace page : http://www.madmapper.com/yourspace

+ New option in Preferences / Misc: you can choose to show/hide the surface names in the export (for inputs or outputs).
+ Added new blend mode: multiply
+ Added OSC color channel support
+ Added Disable HID Devices (PS3/PS4)


Improvements in ArtNet:
* Fixed Solved an issue when changing IP address while MM is running
* Fixed With unicast: the list of network devices gets updated as soon as you select the network interface in preferences
* Fixed With unicast: workaround for a problem in Enttec STORM software (sending IP
* Fixed Reset ArtNet devices when “Reset to factory defaults”

* Fixed Solved a possible crash when entering an empty OSC address
* Fixed bug reported by Aktion: UVs not initialized correctly when recalling a preset where a surface UVs are outside the input rect (http://forum.garagecube.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=9047)
* Fixed Test pattern was always showing 800×600
* Fixed Solved Quartz boolean parameter assignment
* Fixed media pause button assignment
* Fixed Solved an issue when loading projects created with MM prior to 1.6 with preset or surfaces that have empty names
* Fixed Solved an issue when loading projects created with MM prior to 1.6 if multiple presets have the same name
* Fixed Solved a possible crash when changing preset from an assignment
* Fixed No need to restart the application when activating Syphon output
* Fixed Don’t try to open an Enttec Pro on a usb serial port if we failed once (solves issues with some hardware), retry only when opening preferences dialog
* Fixed Bug fix in Media Controller (two issues: possible crash when removing several pictures fastly / when undoing deletion of a media the control nodes were not coming back)

Registred Users can also access to the MadMapper 1.7.0 BETA version including, New embed madlines, lines in Fixtures , audio control, Leap motion .

Thanks to all madmapper users’s feedbacks MadMapper has been updated to version 1.6.2

Registred users can download the latest version from the yourspace page: http://www.madmapper.com/yourspace


Fix: Syphon activation/deactivation needed a restart
Fix: feedback was no more resetting the filters
Fix: Detect if we are using an intel card and if so use 0x10000 to convert for float to int within the shader. Otherwise use 0xFFFF as before.
Fix: Crash when reloading projects with surfaces with empty names
Fix: when reloading a file it was possible to select a projector while being on the surface tab
Fix: Subnet/universe should be ignored when using a Usb DMX output
Fix: Badly interaction between Surfaces, Fixtures and Syphon
Fix: Scanning for Enttec Pro devices on usb-serial ports could be problematic with some strange USB-serial hardware connected (only retry opening failed ports when opening preferences dialog)

Improvement: Added new setting in the preferences to be able to export the input/output without the surface names.
Improvement: Fixture params control (luminosity widget was not linked and increased slider count)
