Thanks to an Ensign upgrade in late Feb, 2003, it is no longer necessary
to ask for a time when you come to the room and want to join in playback.
At the top of the room will be all the information you need to synchronize
It will look like this:
ES030114 (This is the
files we are using in playback)
8:30 (This is the start
time to enter)
14:02:14 (This is the
information to be entered in the sync window to the right of the start
2x (This is the play
back speed to use.)
Enter the information in the appropriate place in your setup/playback
window and start playback.
Your charts will open and be charting the correct bar.
If you are running a playback by yourself, you need to delete the
information in the sync times window before starting playback.
Stop by the room and see if one is running. Hopefully now that the new
computer is almost setup, we will be doing playbacks on a regular basis.
The following items were discovered to be the
cause of people not being able to synch playback with the room.
Doing these 3 things will help ensure your playback will synch with the
- Not having an atomic clock installed.
I run Dimension 4 in the morning before the market
opens and then exit for the day. Since playback uses your computer clock,
you will be off a bit if it is not correct.
- Not having the correct time zone.
If you are new to Ensign, make sure it is set for the correct time zone.
Setup, Computer window - on the left.
- Not having the latest version of Ensign.
Make sure you are running the latest version of Ensign.
Take care and good trading.
