[Closed] Import locolist from Ecos/CS1R

Post by minitreintje » 08.01.2016, 17:15

Hi,

Is it possible to import the whole locolist automatically by Rocrail from an Ecos/CS1R?
Or do I need to add each loco by myself like on the wiki?

Hi Dylan,

no, that is not possible.
I could implement it but you have to edit every imported locomotive in Rocrail; Not really a time saver.

Hi Rob,

I knew you could get the loclist trough the PC protocol however I didn't know if Rocrail had such a sync feature for it.
No problem Rob, but it would be stupid if I do it all manually while Rocrail could just import it (without editing of course).

I understand that it wouldn't be handy if you need edit every locomotive afterwards.

Hi,

Although I have no Ecos, I particularly recognize for a bidirectional protocol an advantage. Especially if also function definition can be added to the read-out of the decoder of the generated loco. If it were only generating a loco address I'm going to agree with Rob.

I think it only generates a loco address...
The same for turnouts :(

If ESU opensourced the backup code of the Ecos it would be piece of cake to make this feature (loco import + turnout import) happen:
1. Backup your Ecos
2. Load the backup in Rocrail
3. Enjoy :)
