Re: 'aiRightDispDateTime' issue is back in MC64 v10 release [SOLVED]

I have the same problem. All worked fine with displaying text to right of the screen in version 9. In version 10, both releases, the text is not displaying correctly. At first, it comes up correctly, but then it overwrites itself as the bars move on, and the result is that the text gets scrambled. S...

Re: Any way to force saving the quote to database?

Many traders keep their system online 24/7 for multiple days/weeks. Now that MC has migrated to RAM cache, that means the data never gets to save to the database. It would make sense to provide an option to periodically save the cache to the database, either manually or automatically, so that days ...

Re: What component of MultiCharts do you want to be optimize

As noted above, if you have more than one data series and use non-traditional bars (point, range, tick, volume bars), the data replay function is unusable, since only gives you minute-by-minute replay of data. In practice, it actually makes it impossible to use multiple data series! I think, if you ...

Re: Data playback stepping in minutes in point charts [SOLVED]

Thanks for clarifying. So it's a 'feature' and not a 'bug'. Although it both looks and feels like a bug. E.g., sometimes, when the market moves fast, a one-minute step on the data playback will move you maybe 20 bars ahead in one jump on a point chart. And when the market is slow, you can click 3-4 ...

Re: Data playback stepping in minutes in point charts [SOLVED]

Thanks TJ for the suggestion, but it doesn't change a thing.
Sometimes there is one bar per click in playback mode, sometimes two bars, sometimes three (after having no progression at all for three clicks). I assume there is a bug, since the playback options are in minutes, and not in bars.

Re: Optimizer accepts only integers as input.

And why should the optimizer behave differently in its handling of inputs than when formatting the very same inputs of the signal in MC? For less confusion, I suggest to revert t...

Re: Optimizer accepts only integers as input.

All input dialogs for optimization use regional settings for the decimal separator. If in your regional Windows settings a comma is used, you should use a comma - ",". If a period is used, you should use a period - ".". OK, but how can I use doubles with comma for the decimal separator in Easy Lang...

Zen/Mirus is a realtime, $ account. But they also DO have demo accounts.

Anyone knows if it's possible to share the data feed between two accounts inside MC? Then I could run a demo trade system on the demo acct, and the real trades on the $ acct.
