[User Discussion] - Problem with Acsil trading

In order to get the benefit of Rithmic's server side OCO, I made few AHK scripts that pull data from SC and insert the orders thru R|Trader.
In SC I made a trading system that gives me all the Break Even and Trailstop capabilities, plus lots of manual moving of stops and targets via keyboard macros (using a Logitech G13 keypad).
The problem is that when in live mode everything works fine, but on SIM mode in SC, once I move the targets/stops via Acsil, SC ignores them.
The Trade Position Lines are on the chart, but the price just passes beyond either of them.
Once price goes over my stoploss/target, nothing happens, but if I move them again via the same macro then it right away registers and flats that trade (since of course price is now beyond the stoploss/target).

* Obviously in Live mode it works fine since Rithmic's servers tell SC when a stop/target got filled.

I think I got a direction:

My charts on this SC instance are from remote data file.
Doing sim trading on a non "remote data file" SC instance works fine.
So, I added a chart with local data file (to the SC copy with the remote data file charts) and now this SC sees the stops/targets even when moved via acsil on the "remote data file" charts.

This of course ruins part of the reason why we use remote data files.
