Then try my script, it works in WB. I use WBRun to open AmiModRadio.

Edit: The HIDE option of Hip will open it invisible, and the QUIT one will close any existing Hip playing, but also will "erase" the Hip prefs for what I've seen:
I use some Hip prefs that load a module that I've got when you start it, but if you open AmiModRadio with my script and the QUIT option it won't, it will only open the one your program finds. It doesn't overwrite the Hip prefs; next time you boot, if you play Hip (my case) it will load and play my module again.

I would recommend a prefs file including full path to player or a tooltype.

Hi all!

Version v0.94 of AmiModRadio is available here, here, or here

Besides some refactorings and minor bug fixes, it includes a usable MUI interface: you can now change the source and root directory and even save modules! Icons are ugly... Wish I could be more artsy

As usual, bug reports and ideas are welcome!

Cheers!

Hi all!

Version v0.95 of AmiModRadio is available here, here, or here



The revamped MUI uses new icons and some interesting code to launch automatically players if in the path. It also include some user preferences, although they are not yet accessible from the UI. As a consequence, putting AmiModRadio in the WBStartup drawer will start AmiModRadio, which will launch the first player recognised in the path and play some music immediately!

In addition to some refactorings and clean-up, this version also fixes bugs #13, #19, and #23.

As usual, bug reports and ideas are welcome!

Cheers!

Hi all!

AmiModRadio v0.96 is now available here, here, and here!

AmiModRadio is getting closer to its completion! It now includes preferences (currently to start (or not) playing modules automatically and to show (or not) the log page automatically ) and an improved user interface, with which the log can be saved! It also includes some refactorings and bug fixing, in particular bugs #26, #28, #34, and #36.

Merry X-mas!

Thanks. But if you press play it starts searching the first known player and it doesn't work "Could not find anything to play".

So you've got to open a player like Hippoplayer first. Of course as I told you, as I was doing, it works with Hip hidden.

But are you sure that you have one of the supported player in the path? Like, I have EaglePlayer in my path and it is started automatically by AmiModRadio

Please let me know!

My pleasure!
In my case, I added to my User-Startup:

Code:
Path "Utilitaires:Musique/EaglePlayer ADD
I believe (i.e., without having tested it!) that you could just the same for HiP! As soon as you'll be able to invoke HiP HIDE from any Shell and from any path (e.g., do CD RAM: before), then AMR should be able to start it too

Please let me know!

YES, it works if you put in the User-Startup:

Code:
Path "Sys:Utilities/HippoPlayer" HIDE QUIT ADD
Thanks and merry Christmas

Edit: No, it seems this way the options aren't necessary, so I'm just using:

Code:
Path "Sys:Utilities/HippoPlayer"
BTW you forgot to use the Drawer icons I posted -if you like any-. In your place I would include them all in an "Icons" drawer with the program files, so the user can chose.

I`ve never tried AmiModRadio, so some guessing here. Searching for different mod players in PATH is not a good idea or at least not the best as you can see. AmiModRadio uses some preferences, right? Just add there a full path to mod player (e.g. with filerequester). Then your program should check if mod player exists and if not throw out a error message. In that case the user needs to add or correct the full path.

Maybe you do the follwing already: How do you check if a mod player is already running? Most or all have an ARexx port what can be checked. Of course you can much more information about the running mod player over the port.

Thanks for your advice but I prefer that AmiModRadio not to be dependent of the users entering path but rather be "plug and play" as long as the user configured its system... And, yes, AmiModRadio is already using ARexx...

Cheers!

I would prefer if it could be possible to change the path assignment in the icon info or in the preferences instead of the user-startup, but just my opinion. In fact many programs need some assign in the u-s.

Hi all!

AmiModRadio v0.97 is now available here, here, and here!

AmiModRadio now understand HTTP and the Modules.pl source now works, thanks to AceMan's API! Modules.pl contains more than 8,000 curated modules (as of this release's date) . This version also introduces a cache to speed up accesses to ModLand.com huge collection as well as many preferences... It also fixes several bugs and has been refactored. Its makefile has also been entirely rewritten to generate the distribution automatically, including Retrofan's icons . Bugs #1, #21, and #35 thus disappear!

PS. This version has also been built without Fortify!

Happy (belated) new year!

Exclamation

PS. Please use the version available here, here, and here, which fixes a major bug due to the cache, which prevents downloading archives from already-cached directories Sorry about that!

Congrats for the version, very nice now.

The icon of AmiModRadio seems to be corrupted though.

You also should change the four white corners of the main buttons. Maybe you could use the same grey of the background for them, so those ugly corners would dissapear.
