Explanation Of Buttons
Using Remote Control
The H2X has buttons that control pyros, lasers, lightning, and other various guitar special effects. PLEASE NOTE; Not all guitars have all special effects. The H2X will control whatever effects are built into your particular OD guitar. Just because of of your OD guitars has lasers (for example) doesn't mean ALL OD guitars have lasers. To find out what special effects are included in a particular guitar click the guitar vendor poster and select INFO from the drop-down menu.
NOTE: There have been some instances of users that cannot get the HUD buttons to respond, or, the only buttons that respond are the "dance" animations. The solution is to use the latest SL viewer version. Some alternate viewers can cause problems.
With H2X you HAVE to re-attach your guitar and adjust (and teach) a new guitar position. Be patient.. it's worth it. Follow each step down through this page....
Previous OD HUDs and animation assumed the guitar was attached to the CHEST or SPINE, this doesn't work for H2X. With H2X you may attach your guitar in a few different places. Assuming you are strumming right-handed:
|LEFT UPPER ARM||This is the preferred attach point. In this position the left hand is free to move to different places on the neck thus offering a more up-close realistic "neck hand" appearance.|
|LEFT LOWER ARM
|Let's face it. There are bands out there with too much armor and spikes on their arms to give up the upper arm attach point to something as silly as a guitar. For these metal-heads the H2X includes a "Lock Hand" function which will prevent your left hand from moving on the neck. This controls the position of the lower arm and hand and allows you to attach the guitar to either place.|
|So Which Position Should I Choose ?||It is a matter of
Since you will be attaching your guitar to a new body location and adjusting the position.. OD recommends that you MAKE A NEW COPY of your guitar.... put it into a new folder so you can tell which is which... then attach the new copy to your upper arm and adjust it. This will ensure that you still have the old copy of your guitar still attached to your chest and adjusted per your taste.. (just in case you want to use it that way too).
If you are strumming left handed attach the guitar to your RIGHT upper arm/lower arm/hand.

|A looping "base" animation. Animates your entire body|
|A dancing "base" animation. Animates your entire body|
|A partial body "expressive" animation. Animates different parts of your body, typically the upper body. Use these while some other "base" animation is already running. These are typically "one-shot" animations which play and do not loop.|
|A "one-shot" version of an animation. These are meant to be played on top of a looping base animation. They animate your entire body, run once and then end. Its a cool way to throw variety into your performance.|
|A long sequence of looping animations. These will play a sequence of varying animations and typically run for several minutes before they start repeating. A good way to "fire and forget" and still have a good variety in your performance.|
|More long animation sequences. Mostly heavier, more rockin' animations.|
|Mic Grip On/Off. Use this to raise your mic to your mouth when using animations that don't automatically raise the mic. (like the blue button dances)|
("E" Key or "PgUp" Key)
|With the A/O activated these keys will make your avatar jump. There are several different jumps. You can choose a specific one or let H2X choose them randomly|
|Walk||The built-in A/O contains various "walk and play guitar" animations. You can choose a specific one or let H2X choose them randomly.|
