How are MK 2 Universes determined?

Postby nizer » Wed Oct 27, 2021 5:58 pm

So how does LX decide with a MK2 what universes it is dealing with. Is it always Universe 1 and 2 or can it be 3 and 4 etc.

As far as the output device is concerned, it has its own contiguous address space. In the case of the Mk2, that is 1-1024, or universe one and two.

LXConsole has its own address space but can send to the mk2 or other USB device starting at any address within that space. If it is starting at universe 3 then LXConsole's address 3.1 goes to the widget's address 1; LXConsole's address 4.1 goes to the widget's address 513, etc.

See the answer in your other mk2 question about how this works.
