So blackwind how is the new plugin coming... im waiting for the official release so i dont have to deal with bugs.
keep up the good work!
Blackwind and gizmomkr,
what priority settings?
I need to know!
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,
Ps. I am activly coding 2.03 right now, expect it by mid next week.
