Cannot launch a show in Hog 4 OS


A show cannot be launched because the "Launch New Show" or "Launch Existing Show" buttons are greyed out on the start screen.


Description/Explanation of Issue

Usually, this is caused by the "Run Server" not being checked, or there is another show on the network.


  1. Click on Settings
  2. Check "Run Server" box
  3. Hit "OK"

If another show is running, the other show's name will appear in the "Connect To Show" section to connect to. If this is the case, the port number will need to be changed.

  1. Click on Settings
  2. Change the Port Number
  3. Hit "OK"
