How can I use my DGT e-Board with Aquarium?

You can use the program Aquarium with a DGT e-Board.

To select the DGT e-Board as an input for the program follow thes steps:
  • Choose the "Board" Tab on the ribbon
  • Select the correct COM port number. You can find the comport number used by starting RabbitConnect. Selecting the correct port will give you a green board field in the connection tab. This port number should be used for Aquarium as well. Do make sure to close the RabbitConnect program before launching Aquarium. Failing to do so will cause connection conflicts and Aquarium will not be able to connect to the e-Board.
To test you board in Aquarium you can set up a position on the e-Board and check it with the "Start from Position" button on the "Home - Play" tab. See below picture:
