Map a widget, ETCnomad key, or ETC Gadget II in Hog 4 OS


Use the steps below to map a Widget, Super Widget, Super Duper Widget, ETCnomad key, or an ETC Gadget II to a universe in Hog 4 OS. This is commonly used to unlock universes in Hog 4 PC. Widgets and ETCnomad Keys & Gadget IIs can also be used with consoles to get more DMX ports out of the console.


Connecting Widgets and ETCnomad Keys to consoles does not "unlock" more universes. Click here to see how many universes a console can control. 


These steps also apply to mapping the NanoHog and Hoglet's DMX ports.
