Re: Hollywood 6.0: Epiphany out now

Happily updated and I am appreciating the new features very much. But I wonder why the cpu load rather increased than decreased with 6.0 compared to 5.3 (MorphOS here). E.g. a program that used about 6-7% cpu load now takes about 8-9%. Or another program that was taking about 60% load now takes abou...

How to check whether a message port exists

How to check whether a message port actually is existing or not. If a message gets send to a message port that does not exist, the script unfortunately aborts. Do hollywood functions return a value on execution? Would something similar to if sendmessage ("BLA", "BLUP") = false then Debugprint ("fail...

Re: WriteChr() - problem with writing chrs to a file

Thanks Andreas, seems I had misunderstood the Seek thing. Putting out that makes the script working as intended.

WriteChr() - problem with writing chrs to a file

I have a little prob with writing chrs to a file. Probably I don't see the forrest for the trees, but I am really stuck here. I think the following snipped down mini program should write ABCD... to a file, but it doesn't it writes CEG... instead while the counter "my_frame" gets increased by 1 only ...

Re: gapless sample replay - how to do?

Last night I remembered my trick. I actually kind of cheated: The sound I need is a continous and rather random background plus some temporal precise events. Since backgrund and these events aren't temporally tightly coupled I just splitted them. I did a gapless replay of the background (with the bu...

Re: gapless sample replay - how to do?

The delay is caused by the internal buffering. I don't think there's currently a way around this so I'm wondering how you did achieve the realtime changes? Maybe it is possible to feed only very few samples to FillMusicBuffer(), i.e. less than requested. But I'm not sure if this will work at all. I...

Re: gapless sample replay - how to do?

Well, I have issues with a delay during gapless replay I cannot explain. The changes in data providing the stream are affecting the acual stream with quite a delay (1-2s). Just look to the little example code provided below. Dunno why that is the case. If you press the button (the red box), it takes...
