Shotgun basically incorporates all of the features I wanted into a very slim front end.
• MP3, OGG, WMA, etc.
• AVI, WMV, MPG, etc.
• Song/File Search Via OSK
• Navigation Via Iguidance
• XM Radio Support
• Full Internet Support with OSK
• AVS support
• Application Embedding
• Keyboard hotkeys
• More that I'm probably forgetting
• Windows XP/Vista
• .NET 2.0
• WMP 11
• Copy shotgun.ttf into your windows fonts folder
• There are a few hidden options which have not been tested.
• A configeratorrator will come soon.
• Sirius Radio Support
Couple hidden things, clicking the time on any screen will minimize the application and unhide the taskbar. Click and hold the * under web will add the current site to favorites.
Here's a few teaser pics of the Shotgun interface:
this is exactly what im looking for...im subscribed...and do you need a beta tester? it might be a while before i get all my stuff back in, but ill help you locate any bugs...
edit: show a movie screenshot if you could...it would be nice to get WMP or PowerDVD as an embeded app full screen using the controls of that program. that would be nice...
Ok for those interested a copy of Shotgun! can be had @
If you have any issues or questions feel free to message me or email me @
Looking good. Do you have plans to make the Video and DVD play on a 2nd monitor? Thanks
Possible, but I don't have the hardware right now to test it. :(
It would be great to have. In most areas it is against the law to drive and have a viewable video playing. If the video plays on a 2nd monitor in the back of the car then all is good. I have the hardware for this, both on my desk and in the car. I would be glad to test anything you would like, but I understand that testing it in your own system would be better. Thanks
VERY nice OEM lookin'
Just installed (ran the exe) but nothing is working. I get the menu screen but the clock don't have hands. Clicking the music button takes me to the music screen but there are no music tracks/folders. Video don't play either and it didn't detect iguidance (IG is installed in the default path).
I didn't see a readme; does it have to be setup in any particular way?
EDIT: IT'S WORKING! Somewhat!
It's loading the wrong album art for some reason; most my songs are single tracks with the album art embeded in the ID3 tag.
I though that was a clock on the main screen but i'm now getting what's shown in the screen shot above.
It's still not detecting IG.
Looking good. It would be great to have
