Congratulations with the purchase of the Dance Machine System!
The product you received is 'boxed'. Rez the box by dragging it from your inventory onto an empty spot in world.
Left click the box to open it's content and do copy all to inventory. Take care not do this procedure with the actual products, because then you will end up having all scripts inside your inventory and not functioning products.
You will now have a folder in your inventory called: [SHX-DM-DanceMachine]
In the contents of this folder you will find 4 objects:
The two clients are the same, only the 210 has a rounded (sculpted) edge, in the same way as the other 210 line of products we sell.
Rez the two servers, because you will be needing both.
Rez one of the clients to your liking.
DO NOT DEED ANYTHING! - Deeding will make the system inoperable.
How it works
The client has a female and male dancer on display. Clicking on the male will give a menu with male dances found in the male dance server. Clicking on the female will give dances stored in the female dance server. (see image 1)
When you rezzed the two servers and one client, you will see that it immediately works. The servers come with some freebie dances, which you obviously want to replace with your own dances.
Open the contents of one of the servers, delete the freebie dance animations and drop your own dances inside. (see image 2)
You are not done yet; The system will tell you edit the notecard .dances inside.
This is needed to give the dances names which will be shown in the menu to anyone that clicks to dance. This way you have control on making the menu for your club visitors easy and meaningful.
Easiest is to copy and paste the text that is said to you in chat and edit the name text before the = (equals) sign.
Below (image 3) you can see an example of how it works.
At image 4 you can see what a user would see when he or she clicks on the client.
Using more then two servers - change dance styles
If you have a place where the style of music changes regular, or have specific events that would require different dance styles, you can easily set this up by rezzing more then the two servers.
In example, you normally have rock music at your place, and fill the two servers with rock style dances. But at sunday nights, you have a romantic music night, which would require slow dances. Best practice is then to rez another set of servers and fill those with slow dances. At the sunday night, the only thing you have to do is set the rock dance servers to off, and the slow dance servers on.
Do note that you can only have one set active at one time of course.
Using more then two servers - different clubs in the same region
If you have more then one club in the same region and want to place a different set of servers and client for the other club(s), you need to change the DM channel on the other set(s).
The front display of the servers will tell you not only if they are online, but also on what DM channel. Also the difference between male and female is displayed in a different color. (see image 5)
Use the menu on both servers and on the client to change the DM channel.
See image 6 and 7: [DM Ch.].
The Dancemachine can work together with a selection of CTS tipjars, meaning that when a dancer steps on a platform, the tipjars gets activated and they start dancing or been shown a menu from the dancemachine automatically (depending on whether you use the DM or DMG)
- CTS Server - Base system, containing copyable 200/210 and 255 profile tipjar frames
- CTS Dance Cage Grunge - Tipjar cage for dancers
- CTS Dance Cage Metal - Tipjar cage for dancers
- CTS Dance Platform Neon - Tipjar platform for dancers
Modifications and updates
Since both the server and client are modifiable, you can go wild editing the displays, just a few words of advice: Editing the servers so that the creator is not Saii Hallard, will render the server useless. Trying to use the animated dancers for another usage then the SHX dance client will be a violation of the dmca and reported when found.
Trying to copy this system and resell it in the exact same form will also be reported and filed a dmca violation.
Other then described, you can modify it to your liking, for instance, only show a female dancer, for places where this is applicable.
Updates are free, until a total revision is required. Use the update button to see if one is available.
We hope you enjoy our products and suggestions are always welcome!
