  • How-To embedding in CENTRAFUSE 1.3

    In this short HOW-TO we will embed a program Directly into CF

    First we will need 2 things.
    -Full path of the .exe to open
    -The window name when you open this program

    Once you get these 2 items open up your ďexternal.xmlĒ file
    (C:\Program Files\Flux Media\CENTRAFUSE\System\External.xml by default)
    Choose a button to place this application into (for this how-to we will just use APP1)

    It should look like this
    Code:
    <APP1>
    		<PATH></PATH>
    		<WINDOWNAME></WINDOWNAME>
    		<DISPLAYNAME>App 1</DISPLAYNAME>
    		<PAUSEMUSIC>False</PAUSEMUSIC>
    		<LINECONTROL>NONE</LINECONTROL>
    		<STARTFULLSCREEN>False</STARTFULLSCREEN>
    	</APP1>
    Add in your previously compiled data. Also at this point you can rename the button, donít choose anything to long though or it will not show up correctly. Other options at this point would be to let this application control another LINE, start full screen, or pause Music.

    Code:
    <APP1>
    		<PATH>C:\program files\GPS\GPS.exe</PATH>
    		<WINDOWNAME>GPS</WINDOWNAME>
    		<DISPLAYNAME>App 1</DISPLAYNAME>
    		<PAUSEMUSIC>GPS</PAUSEMUSIC>
    		<LINECONTROL>NONE</LINECONTROL>
    		<STARTFULLSCREEN>False</STARTFULLSCREEN>
    	</APP1>
    Save and close.
    Reopen CENTRAFUSE and enjoy

            ZSNES runs in a full-screen mode which might cause problems. SNES9X might work better.

                    Cool, snes9x works just fine

                    The embedding is rather..."loose" though

                    The embed window doesnt stretch to its max, you can still see the window behind

                        I've noticed that the Media screen behaves in the same way. I guess the question should be "Is this attribute controllable via the XML for the skin?"

                          that's by design for this particular skin... you change that in the skin.xml if you wanted...

                            Can you tell me what this means/does please?

                              Yes i'm curious about the <linecontrol> option as well. Does this mean the volume of the application can be adjusted without altering the volume of the music?

                              I have noticed that when this setting is left at default, when Routis starts giving navigation cues (eg turn right in 1000 feet) the volume of my music rises for the duration of the cue, then drops back down to its previous setting. I would love to be able to get rid of this.
