Software News   Software News : New software releases by OnyxSoft
   posted by Deniil715 on 15-Mar-2006 21:12:01 (3721 reads)
OnyxSoft is releasing two new programs and no less than six software updates! Have fun!

New programs

Macc v1.0 - (OS4) Mouse accelerator with a couple of settings.

ZoomIT v0.1 - (MOS,68k) Magnifying glass program using MUI.



Updated programs

AllKeys v1.2 - (OS4,MOS) Hotkey program supporting all multimedia-keys and mousebuttons. Now AllKeys finally lives up to its name: *ALL*keys. All 29 extra keys and the wheel on my keyboard works now (thanks to Hyperion), and the buttons and wheel on my mouse too. (The MOS version has not been updated but is still v1.1.)

ActivateWindow v1.2 - (68k) A program to activate and rearrange windows and screens. Very useful together with AllKeys. Now with some features allowing it to act on the active window or screen without specifying a name of it.

DigiConverter v1.3 - (68k) Developer tool to convert between decimal, bex, binary, float and ASCII. Added a function to read out keycodes; rawkeys and vanillakeys.

JoinSplitter v1.3 - (68k) Split and join files with a GUI. Now with some better header-skipping features.

DECH v1.47 - (68k) For all you people who actually (still) use this wierd little program on OS4, Deniil's E-Compiler Handler has been fixed to sends both messages and errors to the same output on OS4-upd4 again.

AmigaAMP-Prefs v1.2 - (68k) The prefs-editor for AmigaAMP has been localized and translated into German, Italian, Hungarian, French and Swedish.

Soon will big updates of MPlayer-GUI (when MPlayer is ready) and Annotate be released as well!

You can do it with STATUS. You would need something like (as usual, untested so might need tweaking):

/* AmigaAmp Play/Pause */
address amigaamp
options results

status

if result="PLAY" then pause
else play

/* end */

The other thing I can't help with much, but I can tell you there are certain rawkey codes defined for such buttons - if the players wanted, they could install their own commodities input handler to listen to them and react accordingly (@Bean - maybe this is a good idea for TuneNet?)

Here are the codes etc from the includes which you ought to translate them to (perhaps as well as the current action):


/* The following keys can exist on CDTV, CD32 and "multimedia" keyboards:
*
* Rawkey |CD32 color&key |CDTV key |Comment
* ---------------+-------------------+----------+-----------
* 0x72 Stop |Blue Stop |Stop |
* 0x73 Play/Pause|Grey Play/Pause|Play/Pause|
* 0x74 Prev Track|Charcoal Reverse |<< REW |
* 0x75 Next Track|Charcoal Forward |>> FF |
* 0x76 Shuffle |Green Shuffle | |Random Play
* 0x77 Repeat |Yellow Repeat | |
*/


Of course, you could just define an ARexx script for each button which runs through and issues the necessary commands to each program.

Yes, that is planned for the next version. Or perhaps the very next version which will be release very soon, but later...



GREAT NEWS!

GOOD WORK!

@FuZion

Chris_Y answered your arexx issues, but about executing more commands on the same key you can do two things:

1. Add the key twice (or more) in the prefs file and set different commands for them.

2. Execute an arexx (or CLI) script and put all commands in there.

Note though that it is MUCH more efficient to execute an arexx command directly from AllKeys (using RXCOMMAND) than to execute the command directly with "rx" or even slower to put it in a script and execute the script. Normally the A1 is fast enough so you wouldn't notice the difference, but during very high load it gets apparent that RXCOMMAND is A LOT faster than COMMAND rx ... .

I put COMMAND rx "address MIXER PCMUP" on my volume wheel and started rotating it and I saw a 30% CPU load.

Then I put RXPORT=MIXER RXCOMMAND=PCMUP on the same wheel and started spinning it but couldn't generate more than 3% CPU usage.

That's a 10-fold increase in efficiency, and then I never even executed a real script.

I have a problem with allkeys, it's running the programs twice, eg I have a little magnifying glass MM key so I assigned Find to it with the following:

CODE=$80000221 CLASS=XKEY COMMAND=wbrun Sys:System/Find

My first line is:

PRI=65 EATALL FLUSHUPSTROKES

I press the button and hold the button and find starts, as soon as I release the button another copy is started

I'm using a Logitech DiNovo usb keyboard.

Stupid question, but:
Is it possible that you have two instances of AllKeys running?

No I don't, for some reason my keyboard returns only the upstroke twice or the keypress twice, so some keys are only upstroke, some are only keypress.

media, stop, play/pause, rew, ffwd, vol up & vol down only return upstrokes

web, mail, search only return keypresses

sleep and the F-Locked function keys don't work at all.

@Severin

Wierd.
What does AllKeys LEARN give you when you hit that key? Do you get two presses? One for down and one equal code for up? If so, I don't think there is much to do except to make a script or something that makes sure only every other event is used.

Yes, thats what I get, the same code for key down and key up. I think this keyboard sends extra data that usb now ignores (it used to just be detected as babble and cause a reset).
