Message Sensor

Message Sensor
  • Receives messages from a Message Actuator
     
  • When the Message Sensor receives a message, one positive pulse is sent to the connected controller(s), immediately followed with one negative pulse (next frame)
Subject:
  • Only accept messages that have this Subject
     
  • Leave blank to accept all messages
Note:

Skip:
  • Used with True Level Trigger and False Level Trigger
     
  • Skips the number of logic tics entered before sending the next pulse.
Level:
  • Enabled:
    • Switching from a State Mask group the sensor belongs to to a State Mask group it doesn't belong to:
      • Sensor is deactivated
    • Switching from a State Mask group the sensor doesn't belong to to a State Mask group it belongs to:
      • Sensor is activated.  Sends a negative pulse to connected controller(s)
  • Disabled:
    • Switching from a State Mask group the sensor belongs to to a State Mask group it doesn't belong to:
      • Sensor is deactivated
    • Switching from a State Mask group the sensor doesn't belong to to a State Mask group it belongs to:

Tap:
  • Enabled:
    • When the sensor is activated, a positive pulse is immediately followed by a negative pulse (next frame)
  • Disabled:

  • A positive trigger event sends a negative pulse.
     
  • A negative trigger event sends a positive pulse.
Note:
  • Sensors can be connected to more than one controller
     
  • Sensors connected to a controller(s) belong to the same State Mask group(s) as the controller(s)
