What is “priorty”? Sorry bud, I can’t understand you.
I've been an enthusiast since 2009, but haven’t started collecting until 2016

You can program things to be set at a priorty and then make a custom equation to change it or do something, i cant quite figure out if 1 is higher pri then 9 because most things ate default 9'9 i believe or something like that

The event priority system was developed in SMPL (Simplex Multi-function Programming Language) for 2120. The priority is expressed in two numbers. The first number is the SET priority and the second number is the RESET priority. Lower numbers indicate greater priority. For example, in an output statement including Pri:5,9 five is higher priority than nine.

When using non-audio control functions the output point is assigned the SET priority when the input statement of an SMPL equation is true. When the input statement becomes false the output point is assigned the RESET priority. For an SMPL equation to change the state of an output point the SET priority must be equal to or higher than the point's current priority assignment.

In 4100 audio commands like speaker, route, or silence the priorities work differently. The SET priority is is only valid the moment when the input side of an equation becomes true. The output then goes to the RESET priority immediately.

The chart below is from an old 2120 programming manual and gives a quick overview of the priority system.
