    Winamp IBusComM.ini settings finally working

    If any of you guys are not using a front-end and trying to get your IBUS Communication Manager Configuration File to work with winamp read on.

    I was reading online that other people were having the same problems as I was trying to get the following part of IBusComM.ini to work:

    ; -------------------------------------------------------------------
    ; Steering Wheel ----------------------------------------------------
    ; -------------------------------------------------------------------
    ;
    [ID:STW_PREV_PRES]
    MsgTemplate="5004683B080F"
    Label="S. Wheel < Press"
    Parse=True
    KeyboardMap="RRPREV"

    [ID:STW_NEXT_PRES]
    MsgTemplate="5004683B0106"
    Label="S. Wheel > Press"
    Parse=True
    KeyboardMap="RRNEXT"


    [ID:STW_PLUS_PRES]
    MsgTemplate="50046832111F"
    Label="S. Wheel + Press"
    Parse=True
    KeyboardMap="VOL+"

    [ID:STW_MINUS_PRES]
    MsgTemplate="50046832101E"
    Label="S. Wheel - Press"
    Parse=True
    KeyboardMap="VOL-"

    [ID:STW_PHONE_PRES]
    MsgTemplate="5004C83B8027"
    Label="S. Wheel phone Press"
    Parse=True
    KeyboardMap="MUTE"

    [ID:STW_RT_PRES]
    MsgTemplate="5003C8019A"
    Label="S. Wheel - Press"
    Parse=True
    KeyboardMap="PLAY"

    Anyway my winamp was not responding with these controls and was doing everything but what the key was suppose to do. I have played around with the IBusComM.ini for a couple of hours and now have winamp working fine including a few of my own tweaks. For anyone having problems feel free to try these settings:

    ; ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    ; Steering Wheel ------------------------------------------------------
    ; ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    ;
    [ID:STW_PREV_PRES]
    MsgTemplate="5004683B080F"
    Label="S. Wheel < Press"
    Parse=True
    ;winamp previous song
    KeyboardMap="z"

    [ID:STW_NEXT_PRES]
    MsgTemplate="5004683B0106"
    Label="S. Wheel > Press"
    Parse=True
    ;winamp next song
    KeyboardMap="b"

    [ID:STW_PLUS_PRES]
    MsgTemplate="50046832111F"
    Label="S. Wheel + Press"
    Parse=True
    ;winamp volume up by 5 notches
    KeyboardMap="{UP 5}"

    [ID:STW_MINUS_PRES]
    MsgTemplate="50046832101E"
    Label="S. Wheel - Press"
    Parse=True
    ;winamp volume down by 5 notches
    KeyboardMap="{DOWN 5}"

    [ID:STW_PHONE_PRES]
    MsgTemplate="5004C83B8027"
    Label="S. Wheel phone Press"
    Parse=True
    ;winamp pause song
    KeyboardMap="c"

    [ID:STW_RT_PRES]
    MsgTemplate="5003C8019A"
    Label="S. Wheel - Press"
    Parse=True
    ;winamp play song
    KeyboardMap="x"

    Ok now to explain what I did.

    For all the key presses I just used the winamp keyboard shortcuts. Now here is the main thing that was messing me up and is VITAL to getting winamp to respond correctly. You can see the following letters z,b,x,c performing various function in winamp. You CAN NOT use uppercase letters in IBusComM.ini. If you were to change the KeyboardMap for RT_PRES to "X" rather than "x" the capture program would send SHIFT+x not x. What you are left with is winamp asking you what file you want to play from a list which is obviously not what you want to do.

    Lastly as for the volume buttons you will see {DOWN 5} and {UP 5}. If you find yourself having to hit the volume up or down button a million times to get winamp to increase or decrease volume then this might help. Winamp normally increases by 1 notch at a time but this way it jumps by 5 notches at one time.

    These are the main changes, I did make a few others but nothing substantial.

    Hope this helps anyone else pulling their hair out.

    had a chance to test this in the car today and it works 100%.

    Works as slick as oil.
