Standard "play/stop/pause" action files? (more than 1)?

Question

you can only set 1 single action file for "play/stop/pause" , that means only one kind of automation per play/stop/pause. do you know if it is possible to make "play" or "pause" execute two action files in a row?

 

is there going to be possible in future updates that you can set 2 or 3 actionfiles in a row "per chosen play/stop/pause" alternative?

 

now i have 1 action files for my hue lights and another for my tellstick lights. would be sweet to have em both in the Play or paus or stop.

Not really sure if this will work, have not worked with action files yet. But can't you create a new action file and put both the actions for hue and tellstick into this one action file?! Afaik commands have to be separated by an empty newline.

Maybe give it a go, if you find time :-)

I did this thx and it "kinda" worked. it lit up both tellstick and hue, but having the actionfile (with both commands in 1 file)  aborted the sequence. any idea why two commands in 1 file (1hue and 1tellstick) aborts the sequence?

Are the two actions separated by a blank line? There's a syntax & test feature in the release candidate that you can use to test your action files before ever playing your sequence.

the two actions are separated with a blank enter space. it also works with play/pause default action slots, but not when in sequence. 

im still on .48 so i cant try new version yet. but i will :)

I was wondering if it would be possible to initiate a separate sequence for say a pause. As an example, pause the movie start a sequence that raises the lights, plays trivia until the sequence is aborted (IE movie unpaused) which then resumes the 1st sequence.
