27.1: Download and Install Fixture Libraries
27.2: Request Fixture Types from High End Systems

One of the most important components of Hog 4 OS is the fixture library. A Hog 4 OS fixture library contains individual fixture mappings called "fixture types" which describe a fixture's DMX protocol and abstract funcion mapping in a way that can be processed by Hog 4 OS software. When new fixtures are introduced to the market new fixture types must be created to enable control of those fixtures in Hog 4 OS. To ensure that Hog programmers have the best and most accurate control over the latest fixtures an updated Full Fixture Library is included and installed with each Hog 4 OS Software release. In additional, requests for individual fixture types are also posted on the High End website and occassionally an updated full library will also be made availble online inbetween Hog 4 OS software releases. This section will cover how to download and install fixture libraries from the High End Systems website and how to submit a request to High End for fixture types not yet available online.
