Quote from Jürgen Meier
Should also f1 - f12 are switched together, there is only the same address in both decoders posible.
The multi-traction served at f1-f12 the leading loko only.
What is the sense of doing so? Please explain.
But how to transer function f1-f24 to slave cars of consist?
During shunting one can join to the same loco quite different cars with DCC decoders at different DCC addresses with interior light function at F1(for example).
By the other hand: often changing CV1 in aim to equalize DCC addresses of cars and loco will lead to very fiddly procedure using programming track.
It's obvious that this function must be easy transfered using consist,
Also would be too useful to have ZNR names which must support composite names, and route editor must have coupling/decoupling functions.
Also please make automatical name transfer from one block to another when You moves loco by hand.
Using track diagramm and implementing new bridge symbol, Commander's firmware can restore all chain of adjacent tracks and nodes, and can exactly pass name of loco when it moves by hand.
A BIG ADVANTAGE will follow: Where is no need in Safe matrix. It will be created automatically from track diagramm and feedback information only! Now Commander have very un-effective use of track diagramm for point of automation.
Also it's easy to detect collisions, and if You mark trak as with "aggressive traffic" - coupling/decoupling incindent automatically will be detected and proceed!
Please do this at next firmware!
