  • Map Monkey Launchers (Fixes for Frodoplayer, Centrafuse, Mediacar...)

    Here are a couple of launcher applications to help the problems with using Map Monkey in certain front ends.
    • FrodoPlayer/MediaCar Frontend Launcher
    This launcher has been mainly created to work with frodoplayer, but can be adapted to work in any environment. You can customise the launchers window title and the frontend application to search for (e.g. Frodoplayer, if frodo is found to be no longer running the launcher will close Map Monkey).

    Mediacar users don't have to worry about closing map monkey before closing mediacar, the launcher will sort this all out for you.

    To Configure

    Frodoplayer users:
    Don't need to do anything. The default window title is "Destinator 3 - [Dest3.1]" and the default application search is "frodoplayer.exe"

    Mediacar etc users:
    You need to run the launcher first to create a "mml.conf" file. Open this up in notepad and change the 2nd line to the name of the applications EXE file

    Make sure you tell your frontend to run the Launcher as your GPS application rather than Map Monkey directly.

    Edit: Also, make sure "Enable Plugin Support" is enabled in Map Monkey configuration

              Launcher

              Sorry,
              Can't seem to get it to work in MediaCar.
              mml.config is changed to MapMonkey.exe
              Mediacar has for GPS
              C:\DestinatorApps\Map Monkey\MapMonkeyLauncher.exe
              What Search string do I use ?
              Run embedded or not ?

                Whatever search string you want! You set the window title on the first line of mml.conf....also, you want to change the exe name in mml.conf to "MEDIACAR.EXE" not mapmonkey.exe!!

                  Using the CFD3Launcher.exe for Centrafuse I got the error:

                  Run-time error '13':
                  Type mismatch


                  what to do?

                        NM, thanks for your continuing hard-work, great stuff!

                        How does this launcher work with Frodo? Do I call the launcher exe instead of the original map-monkey one? Also, what does this correct? I was hoping this would address the “Title-Bar” issue embedding it with Frodo, but it’s still there…

                        Any feedback you can provide would be appreciated…

                            Launcher

                            NM
                            Got it working now.
                            But when I exit MM with the X I get a MMLauncher Run-time error' - 1934 (fffff872)': Map Monkey not found or not listening.
                            This is behind the Mediacar Frontend.

                              I don't quite understand how to use it with Frodo. Could someone please explain it to me ? Also which of the two exes to use (I guess "MapMonkeyLauncher.exe") ?
