Software News   Software News : jahcSoft updates
   posted by jahc on 28-Nov-2005 6:06:30 (2031 reads)
My various pieces of OS4 software have been updated in the last week or so..

RockBEAT 1.3.1 - Create drumming tracks and export as WAV files! Screenshot - RockBEAT
WookieChat 1.9.1 - Chat on IRC networks! (Internet Relay Chat). Now available for OS3.x again!
SimplePlay 3.2 - Play OGG, MP3, WAV, MOD, S3M, IT, XM, and MIDI files!


Rockbeat
Recent changes:
- Made less crashy on exit. My timers and AHI iorequests are cleaned up properly now.
- Position LED's light up while playing, and scrolls automatically
- You can now switch between drumkits, and it will remember the last drumkit you used.


Wookiechat
Recent changes
- When you're holding down the left mouse button highlighting text, channel messages etc are paused until you let go.
- "Unknown nick" and "Cannot send to channel" messages are displayed in their proper tabs again
- Channel lists are no longer sorted alphabetically. It was causing a huge drain on the CPU when thousands of channels were present. It sometimes led to a crash.
- No more garbled channel part messages
- "Clear all" button added to the URL Grabber window
- Added code to prevent DCC Transfers window from popping to the front when you get an incoming file if its already open in the background somewhere
- 68k WookieChat development has resumed, and it no longer hangs when recieving incoming DCC sends. A divide by zero bug in the file transfer stats function has been removed! (thank you wegster for telling me what was wrong)
- Now works with WebChat and DarkMyst networks (homes of #amiga.org and #amigazeux). Wookie was doing its connection detection in a slightly bad way previously.
- Clicking in the main chat display now activates the chat string gadget
- Outgoing swear word filter. use /filter to toggle on and off


SimplePlay
Screenshot - SimplePlay main display
Screenshot - Jump Find window.. find songs fast in a large collection!

Recent changes:
- Shuffle and Repeat playing modes added.
- Bugfix: after a playing a song located using Jump Find, it plays the next song in the list now.
- Song name and Elapsed time is now displayed
- Fixed a playlist bug. It was adding the termination character to text strings about one character too far. So playlists were able to be corrupted after loading and saving sometimes.
- Jump find has been improved slightly. Converts _ into spaces internally
when searching for songs. So for example the song "Christina_Vidal_-_Take_Me_Away.mp3" can be found if you type in the words "take me away"
- The default icon priority is now higher to help prevent playback stuttering e.g. when accessing menus and scrolling in aweb.

Simpleplay works better than ever, but I have still not managed to get Timidity to play midi files under OS4.0. Has anyone else managed it? I have followed all the advice about assigns and so on, but Timidity always reports 'can't open AHI device'. I am wondering if Timidity actually wants 8bit drivers in AHI rather than the 16bit ones that are all I have.

Regards
Roy Leith

Timidity? Is this some old port of Timidity?

The thing is that Timidity is integrated into SDL_Mixer which Simpleplay uses, as far as I know. James may correct me if I'm wrong :)

So, the only thing you need to play MIDI songs in addition to Simpleplay is to have the sample patch and an assign or two.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
