I have for everyone today an update to the Jedi Amp Winamp controller. Since this is previous to the last two versions, I'll simply quote the review and name the changes:
I have for you all the update to the Jedi Amp program. Since it is quite similar to the previous version, I will just quote the review, then tell the differences:
Ah, just last night I was thinking that I would really like a good program to use to only control my winamp while I play JA. So I go and grab a file for review, and what does it turn out to be? Exactly what I was wanting! I get things all set up by opening the program, winamp, and JA, and I start messing around. Almost everything works great. There are a few things that I had problems with, though.
First off, I told it to play something. I did not use the whole song name, just part of it. I have that part for multiple songs, though. It just told me that, but did not show me what songs they were. I personally would like it if it showed in the console what songs they are. Second, I tell it to show me my playlist. What I got was an error in my console telling me that it was too much text. It was only 861 songs, while I have done the same with other programs with over 2000 songs without error. The third and final problem I had was when I tested out the shuffle and repeat functions. When I told them to turn them on or off, it just brought up winamp to the front for a second, then went back to JA without turning it on or off. That might be a problem with my computer, though, but I am unsure.
So, besides those three minor problems, this is a fairly good program to use if you just want winamp control and nothing else. I'd really like to see another version with some fixes to those problems I had with it.
Give it a download if this sounds good to you, I know I'll be using it.
What's new? Well, the problems I had with shuffle and telling it to play songs by using a part of the name that is in multiple song names have been fixed. I still found myself getting the same error when I tried to get it to show the playlist in the console, but I can live without that. My playlist is too long to be properly shown in the console anyway.
Now that it works for everything I would want it for, it's definitely a keeper for me. Give it a download if you feel the same!
So some new commands have been added. One is an option to show Winamp's status (open or closed), one turns JAmp on or off, and one allows you to change the colors of the text from JAmp's responses. When I did some digging around, I also noticed in the options a box for a minimizer. Unfortunately I could not find a way to activate it, and forgot to try out the standard things when ingame, so I leave it to you guys to figure it out. :p
Give it a download if you need a Winamp controller, I know I'll be keeping this! :p
