BOME lacks arrays (https://www.bome.com/support/kb/mt-pro-script-arrays ).
Instead of complex bit arithmetic to share variables, I just emulated them using sequential global variables.
The pattern is as follows:
- The first character are all global variables, taken from this list: 'ghijklmnyz'
- The second character goes as follows: 1234 / 5678 / ABCD / ...
g1 = elapsed timestamp for deck A
g2 = elapsed timestamp for deck B
g3 = elapsed timestamp for deck C
g4 = elapsed timestamp for deck D
ga = track lenght for deck A
gb = track lenght for deck B
gc = track lenght for deck C
gd = track lenght for deck D
h5 = jog touched state for deck A
h6 = jog touched state for deck B
h7 = jog touched state for deck C
h8 = jog touched state for deck D
For a full working example, please see my project here:
ISSUE: The above scheme works very well, and its very simple to understand. Issue is that I have to quaduplicate all rules by hand to change the variables.
QUESTION: does anybody used something similar? if yes, do you have an automatic way to patch the variables names?
REASON: I've just started making a pyhton program to automatically patch the variables, and I'm worndering if someone tried this before.
