Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Plugin Idea, again.

Anyone out there play Half-Life mods? Well I think a simple console command interface with FB2k would be sexy. I have no idea if it's possible. Heres my thought:

fb_stop
fb_play
fb_pause (would pause/unpause)
fb_nowplaying
fb_saynp (would announce now playing, using now playing string config)

and maybe a few customs that could be bound to fb commands/menuitems or even a few to open some playlists
fb_custom1 -> open "Simon Says.fpl"
fb_custom2 -> Components/Toggle Mute

Something along that idea. Anyone like my idea? Anyone know how to program HL plugins as well as FB plugins... good luck

Whats wrong with some simple global hotkeys?

CTRL+Insert : Play/Pause
CTRL+Delete : Stop
CTRL+Home : Attenuation +
...

[EDIT]

Oh hadn't seen the announce part. U could use foo_text with .6 releases to write/maintain a .cfg file, containing the correct HL console-commands, and then simply bind a key to "exec nowplaying.cfg".

[EDIT]

Lemme repharse that, can I get foo_text for 0.7

After doing all that I realized a foobar->HL plugin would still have it's uses. Imagine.

]fb_search "Mudvayne World So Cold"
results:
1: Mudvayne - World So Cold.mp3
]fb_playresult 1

Something like that might intrege gamers who like to listen to music while they play. I dont think I can do this without a plugin for either of the programs.

If it is possible, do it!
