* IMG2 NODE added, allows 2 images to be used together
* handful of SHADERS and NODESETS added for VXY
* New seeding system for random
* NODESET Added: VID+FBK->EFX into MIX added
* NODESET Added: IMG1+IMG2 into MIX1->EFX
* Added card format to system menu (for cards that are not correct)
* New MIX shaders; glitch, glitchScanX, glitchScanY

Bug Fixes:
* 3D System fixed, multiple problems
* Clip load changed to pop up sooner
* Fixed reboot STRUCTURE deadlock
* Adjusted I2C system for low speed ADC

INSTRUCTION ON LOADING FIRMWARE

  1. Place the *.fw file dowloaded above to the front “performance” SDCARD. Place in the root directory of the card, this is the only spot that the firmware loader will look.
  2. Put STRUCTURE into firmware mode in one of two ways. If STRUCTURE is OFF, hold the SYSTEM button in while starting structure. If STRUCTURE is already on, go into the SYSTEM menu and select “Open Firmware Menu”.
  3. If you held SYSTEM down as you started STRUCTURE, select the first option “Firmware Menu” and select the RUN button. If you started from the SYSTEM menu, you will already be in the “Firmware Menu”.
  4. If FIRMWARE is found on the front SDCARD, you’ll see “Structure Firmware found on SD card” You can select INSTALL NEW FIRMWARE . A list of FIRMWARE on the card will be listed, and you can select the one you want to install and select INSTALL NEW VERSION.
  5. Once the firmware is installed, exiting out of the FIRMWARE utility will bring you into the new version of the STRUCTURE FIRMWARE.
