Thx Phoon and carolelee - ideas> hmmm, well, I d all my Killer objects and redownloaded them from WC and found that the mode toggling script didn't appear to be working. I scrutinised the script but could find nothing wrong, then tried restarting dx (as I've found that sometimes irons out wrinkles) and then the script was working. I repeated the process, same thing, when I loaded the object, the script wouldnt work, but then when I restarted dx it did. Then I ugraded my version of dx to the very latest and tried again. This time the script worked from the very first load.
However, there now seems to be an issue when deleting objects, it doesn't always all related objects even when you ask it too, or (even worse) it s unrelated objects. I can only presume this is an issue with the latest builds of dx because I've checked and double checked all my object dependancies, groupings etc.
So, my advice is, install the latest version of dx but be prepared for some possible shenanigans when you objects - or try merely restarting dx and see if that kickstarts the scripts. Let me know how you get on.

DerNickpicker - glad to hear it's working great for you There's a nearly complete suite already and the rest is on the way...

In genius man!! Love the way it changes colors for what ever you put it on. That's a brilliant idea!!

hmmm, very weird, every time I tried to write "d e l e t e" in my last post (without the spaces) the word itself was d e l e t e d. I wonder if this is somehow related to the missing winkies ppl have been repoting lately....

docx - cheers!

I had those troubles, and a dx update fixed one thing (in the process confusing the other). I just love these mode-shifting stuffs. Soon I will make a screenie.

Holy Cow! The different modes are incredible. It will be my favorite media player. Amazing work

Cheers aaron, I'm thinking for an update I might add a whole bunch of custom paintjobs as bonus modes

Tiggz, great objects....Was wondering if there is anyway of making this work with Media PLayer 9....That is my default player......All objects greatly received...using all of them...

keep up the good work

awesome desktop x stuff. but for some reason my killer media has the white arrows around it pointing to the different things, is it supposed to be like this?

Hi John, thanks for the compliments. Not sure whether the dxmedia plug-in supports WMP, but I suspect not. I think there is a way of using activeX controls to make a WMP controller but that would require a completely different object setup. I use WMP for videos, but for mp3s I changed my default player to objectmedia to use this dx object - it will also control winamp, and maybe coolplayer.
mwest316, thanks. Have you pressed the help glyph inside the object display? (Question mark symbol) That should toggle the visibility of those arrows.

This is a great object. Stunning and Creative. 10.
Comment #14 Saturday, March 13, 2004 10:30 PM
Do I have to have Winamp open to use this object? that is the only way I see to get this to work...of course I also have no idea what I am doing either . If I can use this without manually opening and then minimizing winamp then I am all set, otherwise I dont see the point. can someone straighten me out?

CoachDoug1 - once I have made the dx meters, and (possibly) a calendar, then I will collect all the objects up into a theme and provide some sort of toggling system. In the meanwhile you can do the same thing for yourself with some dx scripting, it's a bit beyond the scope of this comments section to fully explain how to do that, but there is some good documentation available on the Stardock website to get you started.
Cheers j dott
Vetto - this object was really intended to control objectmedia (an object desktop component made by Stardock). However, it will also control winamp. You can add a button that will open winamp I think. The easiest way to do that is to probably clone an existing button, and then reconfigure the dxmedia plugin settings. Don't be afraid to experiment, the worst thing that can happen is you have to reload the object from a saved archive.

BomB2k4 - what do you mean it doesn't stay on your computer? I will definitely try to help if you can give a detailed description of the problem you're encountering
Comment #19 Monday, June 07, 2004 7:37 PM
Does this media player play cd's? I cannot get it to recognise CD's at all so assume it doesn't. It's a very smart designed utility but if it won't play CD's it sadly isn't much use to me

I have object media and winamp installed.
Comment #20 Tuesday, June 08, 2004 1:50 AM
yeah I'm not sure but I think you're right. I tend to rip all my cds using winamp, then use dxmedia to play the mp3s - too lazy to do all that cd faffing I guess
