    I downloaded and tried it. Nice streamlined FE.

    Are the links down for the documentation? Suggestion might be some form of on screen help or hotkey. I didn't see how to alter the background colors, if there were config settings, how to embed programs, things like that.

    To be fair, I only tried it for a few minutes, and could have missed it.

    GL with the project!

    There is a configurator which allows you to add programs and change various settings. A shortcut should have been placed on your desktop. If not check in the shotgun folder on your hardrive.

    We will have the additional colors/skins up for download this weekend hopefully.

    We have not yet completed the documentation for Shotgun!, however you can email us ([email protected]) or post here with any questions.

    We use IG4 and there is a delay of about 7 seconds while it loads (IG3 was much quicker).

    How long is your lag?

    We could preload it but most likely it will cause a delayed startup. I'll try it out and see how it works.

    I'll let you guys know.

    Thanks, Q.

    Still working on that documentation. (We're still arguing over who's going to do it. )

    Hopefully, in about a week we'll have something finalized. The color change is actually just a different skin, which I'm in the process of switching up yet again, so I didnt upload them all yet. A few days max they'll be up.

    I like the suggestion of an F1 help key of some sort with a quick ref feature. Added to list.

    Thanks again,
    Collin

    +1 on unicode as I have a number of JPop (Japanese pop) music mp3's. The lack of unicode support by FreeICE is what sank it for me... otherwise I'd run it over RR.

    I'm a little confused by this.. I have a lot of K-Pop (GO BABY VOX!) and it shows up but is garbled. Is this what we are referring to? Or do the names just not appear?

    I seconded the need for unicode, i'm testing this software right now and love everything about it except for the fact that my japanese, korean, and chinese songs show up all screwy.

    Thanks! Definitely on it. We're looking into incorporating a customized font option or recreating ours to fix this.

    Sorry to bump an old thread,

    Theklassic wondering if there has been any updates to this, was looking promising as a WMP / .net frontend.
