[EMX: ]

[EMX: <UpX>,<Y>,<W>,<H>,<DownX> ]

<UpX> == <X>

<DownX> == <X>

Electric Mirror in eXchanged sequence

Similar to the command [EM: ], except with the difference that the pantograph on the right side (with the higher X coordinate) will be defined first, and on the left side will be defined as second.   The coordinates <UpX>, <Y> are used to denote the raised pantograph's position and the coordinates <DownX>, <Y> for the lowered. Both rectangular areas have the size <W>, <H>. Regardless of which pantograph is raised and which is lowered in the original picture,  the pantograph which possess the greater X coordinate is considered the first and the one with the smaller X coordinate is considered the second. This modifier is especially for defining the second and third pantographs (the outer right and an inner pantograph). This is how the pantographs which are created by using the [EMX: ] command are referred to and can be called by the program (see: Actions: Pantograph state changes).

If the <DownX> parameter is not specified Traffic will create a symmetrical position of the pantographs and determines the positions of the lowered pantograph accordingly.

If there are wires, isolators, vents or other details on the roof, you should make sure that these details are the mirror image of each other on both sides of the locomotive.  Otherwise, you cannot use the [EMX: ] command.  In this case, the pantograph states should be generated by using the [E: ] and [ED: ] commands - you should draw the states individually.

The commands [EC: ], [ED: ], [EDC: ], [EU: ], [EX: ], [EM: ], [EMC: ], [EMX: ] as well as the use of the _SAR pictures in the form <BasePicture> < <_SAR_Picture>  are only intended to facilitate the use of base pictures which were not specifically drawn for the traffic program. The preferred method of depicting pantographs in Traffic is by way of a series of phase pictures (which should be grouped into a single image containing all of the portions of the animation) in order to create a fluid, animated motion.  The second best method is to depict both pantographs in their lowered state and to draw each pantograph's raised state as a separate graphic.
