Which lights are on which outputs depends on their assignments in sound teacher. Load the project and then file>print function assignments.

You should be able to copy the "sounds" folder, or at least the project folder in it , to the c drive and open it.

Oh, I am guessing that you did not see the manual on the dvd/usb stick. Also when you installed soundteacherbit was loaded to your PC and can be accessed from the help menu.

I’ve not been able to file>print the function assignments as I don’t have access to a printer, I tried to print to the laptop, just to read the function assignments.
I will have to continue when I return home this week and have the dvd, and printer access.

I hope to attend the meeting at the end of the month and would like to sort things beforehand , at least I have a running truck now. I also need to complete and tidy the wiring, I am hoping to either fit a false bulkhead of my own construction, or buy one I have seen on model lighting solutions website, which has the cab floor and seat mounts in, but I don’t know if the cab will close with the sound module fitted, I am thinking it is better if the cab tilts with the module fitted to it with Velcro. Should have had a better look at trucks when I picked mine up at Saltford last month. Which method is most popular?
I have fitted the AK connection units at the rear end of the cab base, one each side.
I haven’t shortened any lighting cables yet, until I have finalised position of the electronic parts.

Have read the manual inside out, and most of your articles, it just takes longer to sink in the older you get. I did try to print the manual, but even though you read it in English, it prints in German, so lucky I didn’t load the printer and leave it to it.
There is some conflicting information on various forums, so tending to stick to the manual and your descriptions, it is confusing enough as it is.

Another question to my list, having gone through the instructions now with a fine tooth comb, and experimenting with a test project, am I correct in saying you cannot combine the normal back light with the brake light, say for eg 30% rear light 70% brake light, only fog light or brake light are combinable
So would a person have to fit a 4th led, that could be controlled (connected in parallel) by say the front low beam so as to be able to have a rear running light.

Have now set up the SM-IR-16 2 in my trailer, all lights working OK, now I need to reassign a couple of things, horn, air brake and setup a small esc to wind the legs on the trailer up and down, Getting there, having fun. Have only set up the rear running lights, brake, indicators, fog and reversing lights on the trailer.

Sounds like you are getting there. I expect you will want to play with function assignments to get it to work your way.
