Hello, I am running a large ME System in FTB Beyond and my ME interface are only outputting to one of the six connected Assemblers. I have tried many things including using less than 6 assemblers, but it still uses only one.

I have used multiple CPU's with multiple Co_Processors, I have put them on the same Dense cable and isolated them from the rest of the assembler trees. I have put the same recipe in all the connected assemblers. Nothing works and I have been trying to fix this for hours.

Thanks!

I think you have a basic misconception on how the whole thing works. The idea behind surrounding a single interface with assemblers is to allow the interface to do multiple different tasks as that same time. For example in one interface you have the recipe for oak planks and oak doors. If you request 1000 doors you will see two of the assemblers in operation. One for doors another for planks. The rest of the assemblers will not be used. Likewise if you go the other route and only have a single assembler surrounded by interfaces then you are alway stuck waiting for something to complete in the assembler before it can do the next task. So my usual setup that balances this better is a row of 8 interfaces all connected Then place only two assemblers to each interface. You wind up with something like this:

AIA
AIA
AIA
AIA
AIA
AIA
AIA
AIA

Take one interface and connect it in to a main dense cable and you put 4 of these on the same dense cable.

Another issue of note is that the Assembler, while it will take a connections doesn't need it.
You need to connect the cable directly to the Interface.
I have used a similar design to what you are doing so I know it works. Drop the bottom assembler and connect directly to the interface. It should work like that.
It's kind of hard to tell with your cabling though, you seem to have an inordinate amount of dense running.

Alright, Thanks Henry. It's been a while since i did AE2 and i guess i forgot it worked like that.
And Cpt, the assembler connected directly to the cable works. It makes no difference if it's connected directly to the Interface or that.

Turns out what was wrong were my CPU's. I accidentally used crafting units instead of co-processors. All 6 of the attached assemblers work for the same item now.
