    Lightbulb [IMPLEMENTED] Hotkeys?

    I have not been looking at freeway for very long, so if this is a stupid question, tel me, but answer it anyway

    How do you set hot keys? With the emulators built in, this would be ideal (with a few modifications) for my TV computer at home.

    Second....no playstation emulator ?!? Whats up with that?? I have not looked very hard, and it has been a while, but IIRC ePSXe and project 64 shouldn't be too hard to integrate, that would give you nintendo, super nintendo, N64, and playstation.

    True, that is possibly overkill, but you have to remember that somethings you do because it makes sense, somethings you do just becaue you CAN. Currently on my HTPC I am running Media Engine with a custom external app to handle games and (listing) open them with the proper emulator, then shut them down nicely when I am done with them. It works, but it is a kludge.

    Do you mean hotkeys, as in pressing one button will automatically bring up the roms window? If that's what you mean, then... you can't. If I find some time tonight/tomorrow, I'll push out another build with hotkey support and a few other small improvements.

    This wouldn't be too hard to code either. I'll work on the actual functionality, but it will be up to the user to download and install these emulators.

    Thanks for your suggestions and for using Freeway

    Not necessariyl ROMs, but just the ability to navigate using keyboard buttons (no mouse or touchscreen). That way if you use it in the house, you can make it work with a regular remote.

    While you are doign that Any chance you can go back and make Flash selectable in the ini file? I keep getting a "missing flash9.ocx" error on my XPe build. I have flash 5 installed, but not 9.

    You should already be able to use the arrow keys and the enter key.

    Sorry, unless you compile the program yourself, it will always have a dependency on the Flash OCX.

    I can use the arrow key and the enter key to go up and down the menu on the left and select an item, and then it goes to that item, but there is no way to get back tot he menu on the right. For example, I can select "music" and the window will switch to the music view, but then there is no way to switch back to the menu on the right if for example I want to watch a video.

    Does that make sense??

    Fixed for the next release... the left arrow will switch to the main form, and the right arrow will switch back to the topmost window.

    What would be immensely helpful in terms of hotkeys is a config file where the user can attach keyboard commands to all buttons within Freeway, to allow for input-device configuration. ie, when I have full screen visuals enabled, and I want to change to the next song, it would be great to be able to just push-turn my Powermate to the right, or use my steering-wheel control-keyboard input device. Or, to pause, just tap the powermate. etc, etc... What do you think? It would vastly improve an already awesome front-end. I can't believe how quickly you got this working! Some of the other front-ends that have been around for a while still can't do what you do... like run Milkdrop. Good job, I'll be sending you some $$... as long as you promise to spend it on beer in lieu of books ;-).
