Taking APC40 and APC20 out of combination mode

Post by PatrickHaggart » Wed Sep 29, 2010 6:43 pm

Hey there,
I just made an update to 8.2 and it gave me the combination mode for my APC40 and APC20. Thing is I liked it the way it was working before where the two boxes that show where on the grid you are with the APCs (the red and the yellow one) would move independently. Does anybody know how to go about this?

It would appear that you can prevent the APC40 and APC20 from operating in combination mode by adding a line to your options.txt file.
"DontCombineAPCs"

Deactivate the APC combination mode: don't align and sync the session rings of multiple APCs so they can be moved independently.

Supported since: 8.1.4

Example: -DontCombineAPCs

PS: Thanks to madlab for asking about options.txt in another thread.
