    I am not going to set a specific release date. At the current point, I can release the main app, but it is pretty damn hard to use without a way to configure it. I am also trying to tackle that run-time 91 error. As long as you keep the settings configured properly, you'll never get it... its just so annoying and I have almost fixed it!

    Update!

    I completely rewrote the code from the ground up. Because of this the code is a lot more optimized and more efficient. It also ALL WORKS without bugs. (Except one, but it doesn't matter anyway.)

    100% IR Remote
    90% Keyboard (Still finalizing everything that can be controlled.)
    Upgraded from DirectX 7 to 8. (DX8 is included with Windows XP.)
    0% directory skipping. Controls are implemented for it, going to take a lot of coding to make it work properly.

    Multiple playlists is something I have to talk about here. There will be the ability to create multiple playlists in the future, but not at the moment. The idea is that with directory skipping, that will cut out a good number of neccessary playlists by not having to make a playlist for each directory/album/artist. Using playlists that stem together from multiple directories for that mix of songs you put together, that is where I see the need for multiple playlists that won't be fullfilled by directory skipping.

    I'm going to finish up keyboard support here and hope to put out the first release tonight through sometime this morning.

    I think you got what I said.

    Example MP3 arrangement like so:
    D:\MP3\ - No mp3s
    D:\MP3\Artist1 - No mp3s
    D:\MP3\Artist1\Album1 - Plenty of mp3s
    D:\MP3\Artist2 - No mp3s

    If there are MP3s in the directory, it will play the directory.
    Now assuming MP3s only reside deep down in the Album directory and not in the Artists/MP3 directories, it would end up skipping the directories like so:
    D:\MP3\Artist1\Album1

    So because my imaginary directory structure only contains that one album folder with MP3s in, that is all it would skip. (Mine is actually a lot messier than that!) The other thing is playing all the albums in an artist directory. While this is possible, its not possible for the program to know what is an artist or not automatically. I am considering adding in a mode where you can skip individual artists based on directory, but you would have to manually make the list of what folders are included.

    I need to address this, IRman. Support should be included in this first release assuming it works properly without me being able to test it. However, due to the nature of IRman working with many many(40+) different remotes, I can not include a virtual remote like I have done with the Creative remote. I will add in popular remotes that people use if there is demand for it.

    Instructions:
    1.) Download both and let them install to the same location.
    2.) They will place shortcuts in your start menu, please run the config program first before running TME otherwise you will just get a big error.
    3.) Tuck me into bed. *snoozes*
    Look at next post for new files.

    I didn't get input configuration finished so you will notice that that part of config doesn't work.
    Default Keyboard keys:
    Left - Skip back
    Right - Skip Forward
    Up - Rewind
    Down - Fast Forward
    Numpad Enter - Play
    Numpad Minus - Volume Down
    Numpad Plus - Volume Up
    Numpad Multiply - Mute (Not working - known bug.)
    Home - Toggle Shuffle
    Numpad Divide - Pause
    Numpad Del/Period - Stop
    Numbers = Numbers

    Creative remote is pretty self explanitory.
    Modes are not implemented yet, so don't worry about the keys.
    PLAYLISTS MUST BE SAVED AS *.PLS TYPE IN WINAMP!

    If you decide to play around with the settings.ini file to change the keyboard settings.

    Updates:
    Remote is now configurable through config program.
    Can now select either IRMan or Creative remotes. (Selecting a COM port that does not exist on your computer will cause the Debug window to report the remote to have failed initilization.)
    Fixed a few IR related bugs.

    Need opinion! Which you prefer, buttons to go direct to a certain mode, or one button to toggle through the three modes?
