Flash firing intermittently

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction, when attempting a 40 shot stack last night I was finding that the flash was only firing about one in every three or four shots.

I noted that some people have had issues with the flash not firing so set Open Preferences -> Shooting and set "Activate live view when taking a shot" to "No", which didn't resolve the issue.

Changed the time wait for flash to recycle right up to 15secs (just in case), still an issue...

When running with WeMacro's own software, I managed x3 sets of (40) stacks and the flash fired every time.

Thanks,

Is silent release disabled? It needs to be.

That cured it, it's now working spot on...

(Serves me right for jumping in to the software and not reading all the set-up instructions!)
