Using WPSuploader

This small program allows to upload your script to the WPSmote very quickly and easily.

You can either create your own .csv file in Excel or export directly from Finale Fireworks software (Export Generic CSV). You can also add/delete rows within the software itself.

Format:
Channel = 1-99
Bank = A-L
Cue = 1-12
Ignition Time = sss.ff or mm:ss.fff
 
Where mm are minutes 00-59, ss are seconds 00-59 or 000-999 for sss and fff are fractions of second (000-999). 
For instance, 01:02.300 means that cue will fire at 1 minute and 2.3 seconds from the time 0 (start of the show). Similarly, 062.300 is equivalent to 62.3 seconds (1 minute and 2.3 seconds)
 

Importing csv script from Finale Fireworks and uploading it to WPSmote:

1) Create your script using Finale Fireworks software following this format:

Channel = Module Address;
Bank = Slat Address;
Cue = Pin Address;
Igition time = Ignition Event Time.
You can access configuration in User Preferences -> Firing System -> Customize

2) Export your script as Generic CSV using Finale Fireworks.

3) Download and open WPSuploader.

4) Enter WPSmote in PC Control. Select COM port from the menu (usually the last one) and click Connect

5) Open your exported CSV file into WPSuploader.

6) Either select each column from the list or click Detect

7) Click Fill table. If no errors occured - continue.

8) Press Upload.

9) Check that script is uploaded correctly by going to WPSmote -> Script -> View.
