Re: playing mp3 via datatypes doesn't work under MOS

Well.. I removed Reggae and tried with Multiview, it's using datatypes then, and Multiview played now the same songs as Hollywood did under Windows. Interestingly that one same song didn't play, but others did.

Re: playing mp3 via datatypes doesn't work under MOS

I also noticed that quite big percentage of mp3 files won't work with Hollywood on MorphOS. Some files complain "Sound file "a.mp3" is in an unknown/unsupported format!", some just don't play (nothing heard, or just very short "blip"). And they all do play fine with Multiview, Ambient's internal pla...

Re: Problem with Menu in HW 6.1

The only solution to this that I see is to use a new flag for @DISPLAY that allows you to set whether you want to have RMB events at the expense of being unable to listen to the RMB or if you don't want to have RMB events in order to allow the menu bar to be opened by right clicking over the displa...

Re: Problem with Menu in HW 6.1

I noticed this on MorphOS too. You can have system settings configured so that menus would appear under mouse pointer instead of just from the screen title bar, but that doesn't work with Hollywood programs and it makes them behave in a non-standard way. I think the best would be that if you don't t...

Re: Problems with Run()

Yes, it seems to hit on MorphOS too (log). The wanted program starts, but hit in the log, so it doesn't behave correctly.

Re: MIME type of MorphOS the hwa extension

Oops, I didn't notice back then that there are two types of applets, with or without compression. I think this should work for both: AMTD 1 Name Hollywood Applet Type application/x-hollywoodapplet Match PatternHint #?.hwa Match sHWA OR Match sHWZ End Action Name Play with HollywoodPlayer Event Doubl...

Re: Checking ARexx port availability

I'm planning to make Hollywood programs which would interact with many other programs via their ARexx ports, but I haven't found any functions to check if a port is available yet. It would be needed to check if a program is running, before trying to send ARexx commands randomly to it. Hollywood pro...
