OSC - subscribe not working reliably

This is really frustrating. It is so complicated to get Pan/Tilt out of EOS.
It would be easy if .. Feature Request to get params
But as it stands the only way is to Subscribe to those parameters, then select a channel in question, then wait for the reply. Correct??

For me this only works if I leave pauses in-between the requests (~0.25sec) and if nothing else keeps EOS busy. As soon as I'm trying to pull Pan/Tilt (from a number of fixtures) while other processes happen, EOS does never reliably reply to all the requests. No matter how long the pauses I leave between those.
Isn't this a bug and can it be fixed?

Is there any other way to pull Pan/Tilt?

  • I don't work for ETC, but OSC output is not guaranteed.

    "newcmd" is incredibly process heavy and depending on many factors (hardware, network, OSC input rate, phase of the moon, current outputs) I would not be surprised to see undesirable and inconsistent OSC output because of this. If you can get away with cmd, you might have better results.

    I would also recommend not using user 0 as it can be interrupted by macros and other things. You should create a user specifically for your OSC connection.
