The Start / Finish Line – aside from obviously being the start and finish point for a course – is used to manage course settings via the Settings button on the control panel. Assuming that you have access to the Settings menu you’ll be given the following options:
|Sets the name for this course. Names can be up to 15 letters long and should be unique and descriptive. The name will appear on the scoreboard set to monitor this course, and will be saved to the database for future retrieval.|
These buttons allow you to increase or decrease the Course ID number.
The Course ID Number is used to identify all of the hurdles which make up a specific course. Each course in the same sim must have a unique Course ID number.
These buttons allow you to increase or decrease the Board ID number.
The Board ID number is used to communicate the results of a race to a Score Board or Score Recorder. Multiple courses can use the same Board ID.
This button toggles the hurdle sound effects – the clapping or gasps when a pony clears or faults on a hurdle – on and off.
This button will only effect hurdles with the same Course ID number as this Start / Finish Line.
|This toggles on and off the sound effects played when a pony crosses the Start / Finish Line.|
|This button toggles the Blind Hurdle option on and off. When turned on, Blind Hurdle causes the next hurdle the pony has to jump to emit a sound so they can locate it while blindfolded.|
|Sends a signal to all of the hurdles with the same Course ID number triggering a script reset. This also resets the Start / Finish Line script.|
