Plugin Request

I'm not to good with programming, but I'm really missing my joystick plugin for winamp 2. Is there anyone out there that can make one for winamp 3?

I dont know exactly what is included in the beta SDK, but I don't think that control code is, so you'll have to wait for a while.

Nope, check out ComponentAPI::core_userButton(). That's all you need.

What I'm saying is that it is quite possible to recreate this plugin as a wa3 component. What you would do is check the joystick data and then call api->core_userButton() with the various UserButton codes, like PLAY, STOP, etc.

thanks brennan,

Ok so now that brennan has established that it is possible, can someone that know's how to write plugins do me a huge favor and write a joystick plugin? I'd try to figure it out myself, but I couldn't find any tutorials on writing plugins and I have very limited programming skills.

I'm seizing this opportunity to bring up my request for a plugin again.

I really, really want WA3 to have an alarm feature at least. A sleep timer would be a very nice further addition--but the alarm plugin is essential.

Actually, to say alarm "plugin" is a bit misleading. I think that an alarm function should be integrated into the player itself. I wake up every morning to music from QCD player; and every morning I ask myself why they made this thoughtful inclusion and WA hasn't.

Well, that's my $.02

Why don't you two try the SDK Development forum. That is where all the programmers would be. Make sure they know the SDK though since I know C++ but I have no time to know or do I know the SDK for Winamp or most things.

Work in Progress
