Ledblinky - How to ignore a led controller?
« on: December 22, 2023, 10:33:46 am »
Hi,

I have 3 led controllers: Pac-Drive, IpacUltimate and another IpackUltimate. I have my coin door lights hooked up to my pac drive, used to run perfectly, but since I installed ledblinky it takes charge of all the controllers and it shuts it down.

Any way to ignore a controller or have lights on all the time regardless if hyperspin is running or not? Just want the Leds from that controller to light as soon as the pc starts.

Thank you!!

If you want those lights to be always-on when the PC is on, remove the controller and power them directly from a drive power Molex connector.
- No animation = no need for a controller.   :cheers:

Hi Scott,

Yes, thank you, the controller makes it easier to setup and maintain.

Much cleaner solution then using amolex directly to the lights.

Is there no alternative to have ledblinky bypass a controller or ignore it?

Thanks

. . . except for the software . . .  :lol

Consider using a euro-style terminal strip for LED power distribution like mcseforsale did with his Blue Pill build.

Found a solution, it works so the coindoor stay lit when Hyperspin starts, good enough :)


1: Open LedblinkyAnimation Editor , go into file and select LED Controller Independant.
2: Create a  new animation with just the lights on for your coindoor and save it. I named it "Coindoor".
3: Open LedblinkyConfig.exe go into the Misc Options tab, enable cabinet leds, put in the type of controller and its ID on my case for a PacDrive it was PD1, under each tab below select the new animation you created above and save.

This will Light the coindoor each time you open Hyperspin as a separate animation."
