    === Appendix ===

    It is possible to change the channel the Promenade uses by changing the "channel" line in the Promenade Settings notecard. This allows you to have more than one dance machine in a given area and control them separately.

    Dancer HUDs should work with whatever dance machine they are dancing on. However the owner of the dance machine will need to configure their HUD to talk on the correct channel for the dance machine they are controlling. If using the Sensations HUD this can be done by editing the Settings - Promenade notecard in the HUD and change the channel| line to be the channel of the dance machine you are wishing to control and reload the Promenade layout.
