Hippotizer V 2

[FONT="][/FONT] [FONT="]Couple of questions about patching a Green Hippo Version 2 Dual mode on a Hog3.
[/FONT]

[FONT="]
[/FONT]

[FONT="]First, I can’t seem to find a profile for simple (or preset) mode, which is fine. I’d like to use it in Full mode anyways. So here’s the question.[/FONT]
[FONT="] [/FONT]
[FONT="]In patching, we have Hippo Master and Hippo Layers. If I’m running the Hippo in Dual mode, how do I patch this? Would it be:[/FONT]
[FONT="] [/FONT]
[FONT="]Hippo Master 1 = Output 1 Master @ DMX 1[/FONT]
[FONT="]Hippo Layer 1 = Output 1 Layer 1 @ next free DMX[/FONT]
[FONT="]Hippo Layer 2 = Output 1 Layer 2 @ next free DMX[/FONT]
[FONT="]Hippo Layer 3 = Output 1 Layer 3 @ next free DMX[/FONT]
[FONT="]Hippo Layer 4 = Output 1 Layer 4 @ next free DMX[/FONT]
[FONT="]Hippo Master 2 = Output 2 Master @ DMX 1[/FONT]
[FONT="]Hippo Layer 1 = Output 2 Layer 1 @ next free DMX[/FONT]
[FONT="]Hippo Layer 2 = Output 2 Layer 2 @ next free DMX[/FONT]
[FONT="]Hippo Layer 3 = Output 2 Layer 3 @ next free DMX[/FONT]
[FONT="]Hippo Layer 4 = Output 2 Layer 4 @ next free DMX[/FONT]
[FONT="] [/FONT]
[FONT="]Or would it be something different? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank ya.[/FONT]

    Ahem, I messed up with some copy pasting.

    What I meant was:

    [FONT="]Hippo Master 1 = Output 1 Master @ DMX 1[/FONT]
    [FONT="]Hippo Layer 1 = Output 1 Layer 1 @ next free DMX[/FONT]
    [FONT="]Hippo Layer 2 = Output 1 Layer 2 @ next free DMX[/FONT]
    [FONT="]Hippo Layer 3 = Output 1 Layer 3 @ next free DMX[/FONT]
    [FONT="]Hippo Layer 4 = Output 1 Layer 4 @ next free DMX[/FONT]
    [FONT="]Hippo Master 2 = Output 2 Master @ next free DMX[/FONT]
    [FONT="]Hippo Layer 1 = Output 2 Layer 1 @ next free DMX[/FONT]
    [FONT="]Hippo Layer 2 = Output 2 Layer 2 @ next free DMX[/FONT]
    [FONT="]Hippo Layer 3 = Output 2 Layer 3 @ next free DMX[/FONT]
    [FONT="]Hippo Layer 4 = Output 2 Layer 4 @ next free DMX[/FONT]

    Or do the masters go back to back? Or at the end? Or some combination therein...

    Master, 4 layers, Master, 4 layers is the correct way. The reason is that Dual mode was designed to be equal with 2xExpress Hippos
