    Just a note blackwind - The "0" and "." keys seems to be swapped.

    For example "." pauses my player.

    Dodge - I used the optimization saetings, and virtual mem setings under system properties to tweak mine.

    just wondering what the bugs are in it before i use it. I mean since i wired up the comp to the fuse panel it starts when the car starts and i cant reboot it without shutting of f the car.... (too lazy to install a switch up front) So if it freezes the system im not gonna use... so whats the bugs?

    As of 2.02 is only 1 bug that I know of.

    It's the 0 and Enter keys; the 0 will bring up the “jump to song” window and the Enter will play the highlighted song in the play list window. I'm almost 100% sure this has to do with the lock / disable options. However this bug won’t lock up your system, the plug-in will work even when the jump to windows is open. It’s just annoying if anything.

    There are also some issues (things I don’t consider bugs but should be addressed) about the plug-in; they are …

    1) The first one is the macros engine; It doesn’t proof correctly so if a macro is set up incorrectly there’s a change that it will

    A. Won’t work
    B. Cause an undesirable effect like a message box or crash.

    2) Some of the included documentation is incorrect.

    3) The hook doesn’t steal keystrokes from every application (plug-in) but then again it wasn’t really designed too.

    4) If you use any MS networking protocal any computers that you connect to will not shut down correctly using the plug-in. You’ll get the old “xxxx is still connected would you like to disconnect them” message box. To avoid this use a TCP/IP protocol for transfers or shutdown the computer you connected with.

    I guess that means if you test all your macros, keep winamp minimized and you don’t use the keyboard to disable or lock the keys you should be fine. I just put the warning up so people wouldn’t think twice if the beta didn’t fully (or how they expected it to) work for them.

    Hope that clears things up,
    Blackwind

    Ps. I am activly coding 2.03 right now, expect it by mid next week.
