Quoted from TinyBlackDog:
Spoke to Mike Vinikour at TPF this morning and complimented him on the excellent Expression Lighting programming on Rush. Such a nice guy.
A few tidbits of info:
1) The DJ Mixer EL integration is not likely to change to be song specific (like in Led Zeppelin). This is because the songs used during gameplay are often edited somehow - like skipping slow parts at the beginning. The song specific light shows would need to be reworked to match the full length songs in DJ Mixer, and there likely isn’t time to do that.
2) He wasn’t sure when the EL kits will be available, or if they will come with the same side art as is on the LE.
3) Says there are still a lot more improvements to come for the EL light show in future code updates.
4) Each pill shaped light has two separately addressable RGB LEDs. These are generally set to the same color, but at least one song has some effects where the top half and bottom half cycle differently.
Awesome intel. Thank you.
I'm so jealous you are there.
