    sorry to bother you guys, but I am mostly purist when it comes to programmation.

    Run frodoplayer on a 300 Mhz instead of you 5 ghz monsters and you'll see the difference with only one API call that cam done by driver a few level up without any APIs.....

    Up to the software guy, but even 0.0001% slowdown can accumulate and make a difference on the long run. Frodoplayer is still the fastest databased media player I know, but if we want to calculate pi everytime we draw a button, we might loose something
    The whole point of this software is to be an all in one do everything software. I like having everything, all right there, that way I don't have to mess with changing other stuff outside of frodoplayer. Like I said before, it doesn't even have to call the API unless you want it to. If Frodo sets it as an option there is no problem. the only differance is the extra byte of hard drive space that it takes to program it in.

    That's ok, I made my own 1.0.7. It is way better than 1.0.6.

    Oh, crap you weren't kidding. I just realized you have 1.0.5, 1.0.6 and 1.0.7 out already. Been awhile since I checked up on this forum.

    They all happened yesterday in a span of a few hours.

    Man, I'm not trying to be a pest or anything, but you've got to be kidding me. You're saying you'd rather have the user search around their mouse settings (which probably isnt difficult) to hide the cursor, than to include a one line API call in your code? It litteraly would add 1 line to the declarations (the declaration of the API itself, so you can actually call it), 1 line at startup: ShowCursor(false), and 1 at closing: ShowCursor(true). You mean to tell me displaying images all over the screen, playing MP3's, MPG's, etc is OK, but the overhead caused by a mouse cursor api call will put it over the top? Listen to your users, they know what they are talking about.

    Also, if your running at 300MHz, well....its time to upgrade, probably cant even decode MP3's with that

    Hey you quoted at Marsupial, but obviously were talking to me. I never said I wouldn't add it. I said it was unreliable. The API call to restore does NOT always work. I'll probably add the option, but I will take NO support requests on it.

    xtremeRS : once you have your setup installed, I don't see why you would matter changing anything like it. Now I always wonder why one software would take charge of everything if its not an operating system.

    Really, I do not see why we should add EVERYTHIGN in the same software, while it is already available in the enviromnent you are using...

    As I said earlier, what is great with the frodoplayer is the quickness of the interface and the efficiency of the man-machine interface it creates... you say adding a single call won't affect performance, but if we start here, when do we stop?

    Sometimes its not necessary to include the moon, saturn and haley's comet to a single lanscape...


    BTW I do not see why I would upgrade any machine running at 300Mhz... I am able to make it more stable then your monster running at 3 gigahertz... you know you need about 90 Mhz to efficiently decode and play a MP3?
    my carputer is built up a 400Mhz celeron, and I have spare CPU cycles, but I know some people would use whatever machine they have available according we build software that let them do so... Money is sometime a matter against upgrades.

    I do not see why I should spoil my CPU cycles stupidly, anyway.
