Can I get OSC / Blacktrax communication withoiut Galaxy?

sidenote:  I wanted to put this question under the previous "Can I work with Spacemap GO w/o Galaxy" but i;m unable to post there?

Q: If i use Virtual Galaxy in Compass to run SpaceMap GO, can I get OSC / Blacktrax communication without Galaxy?

Said differently: are commands received/processed by Galaxy hardware, or by the Compass-running computer?

A : Yes ! If you target the computer running the Virtual Galaxy's IPv4 address, Spacemap Go should read the Blacktrax data (provided that it is activated in Spacemap Go).
Blacktrax data is read by the Spacemap server that lives in the Galaxy firmware, so if you target a device, the device is going to react, if you target a Virtual Galaxy it going to behave in the same way.

In fact you can run a Blacktrax simulator on the same computer that runs Spacemap Go to try it out.
