Hello all.
I have just begun working with CastleOS, (actually just download the demo today and stole my son's kinect off his xbox 360 (he wasn't using it anyway).
I haven't attached any lights or anything to my system yet, my first goal was to see how well the voice system works. I have to say I am pretty impressed with it so far and after i added the IVONA 2 Brian voice to it and named it Jarvis, my son decided I could keep his kinect if it meant the house had the same voice as J.A.R.V.I.S. haha.

Anyway, one thing I have noticed is the lack sample scripts. Yes I know I could start hunting them down else where but it would be nice if we could get some people that have some basic scripts written to post them on here as a starting off point. I am not asking for some overly complex ones. Just a couple of simple custom commands that have been made up would be nice.

Also on the custom command section of the Kinect Config window, I wanted to know just how many could be added to that list? is there a limit? What if I wanted to add 100, 200? would the system handle them okay?

Hey Nick

Yeah I was looking at some of them. I don't have any real experience with coding but if I can get a few examples like some of the ones you have posted it will help give me some footing for attempting to learn things to help out some.

Hey Landon, to answer your question about the number of custom commands CastleOS supports, we actually don't know the answer. It's at least in the thousands. We haven't hit the limit in our testing.

Thanks!

Hey Chris

That is great to know, now for my next question in regards to that. (please bare in mind I currently only have one Kinect and PC setup with the software, if I setup a second one lets say one in my living room and one in my man cave, will I need to re setup my custom commands for each PC, or will the custom commands filter from one Kinect service to the other one?
If I have to re-enter the commands is there a quick way to export and import the commands from one system to the other? like maybe as simple as moving a xml file and the scripts in the script folder?

They don't automatically sync, but it's very simple to do, you just need to copy over a single file that contains the commands, and copy all the scripts to the Scripts folder on the second machine.
