One Function at a time, without being able to be interrupted - Quiz Show Buzzers

Post by Brzam » Tue Feb 07, 2017 4:02 pm

Hello,

What I'm wanting to do is have 4 gameshow buzzers - we're planning to use the Buzzers from the game Buzz, these can be Midi controlled and so go through to QLC no problem. The issue is that I want to be able to only have one function active, then add a delay before any other function can be activated.

So that if Player One presses their buzzer, then if Player Two presses there's it won't overwrite that first Player's Function - or start Player Two's function, something like a 20 second delay before the next function can be activated, either in that group, or overall.

If this has to be on a completely separate QLC software, that isn't an issue!

If anyone has any suggestions on how to go about creating something like this, I would be most grateful!

Thank in advance,
Sam Brooks - Brzam

Welcome to the forum!

You could place 4 buttons in a frame that have your buzzers as external input. To each button, you assign a script that activates some scene (as you want to light somebody or whatever you want) and then disables the frame over loopback. After 20s waiting, it enables the frame again.

I made a sample workspace for that with 2 buzzers. For testing purposes, I added two buttons representing the physical buzzers. These are the input to the buttons in the frame via loopback.

If you have further questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Regards,
siegmund
