cdex plugin

Xlobby plugin development

Postby rika on Fri Nov 05, 2004 1:44 pm

Answer to my own post..
Download cdex : http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/features.php
config the cdex-plugin location = where you have the cdex.exe
if your skin get blank please try the following patch:
http://www.cdex.n3.net/CDRip_fix151.zip

copy the cdrip.dll file into the CDex_151 directory.

Still have a blank screen???

Do you have lameacm.acm in C:\Windows\System32 ? If so then rename/delete it and try starting it up. Otherwise try removing all acm files from the folder, start CDex, if that works then slowly add the acm files back in again until you identify which one is causing the problem. This is more a problem with Windows, which shows up as an error in CDex. Have you installed the Nimo Codec Pack, as this typically gives you the dodgy lameacm.acm file?
(Tip from cdex-forum)

How do I add this as a plugin then please?

When I try to download it inside XL it doesnt.
So I installed it separatly, but what do I need to copy into the XL plugin directory?

Thanks.

I use Colby'z skin, so that means I need to implement this myself? I need to dl Jowaldos skin then figure out how to add that functionality into colby'z?

I installed the proggy, but I am a bit confused about the plugin for XL, as edgley says, it isn't downloading via the skin.

Thx

if you want... just download my skin and copy the audiocdcopy.xml in the skin folder, and the cdex.xml file in the eventgroups folder, to the respective folders in colby's skin. You will of course have to change the images and the overall appearance to match that skin, but as long as the plugin is configured correctly it should be functional.

Hi
I am very new so please be gentle.I have cdex installed and working on my laptop.I have jowaldos skin and have configured the cdex plugin to the cdex.exe file.
When I pop in a cd I get a screen with 3 options namely Play Copy Exit.If I select play it does so but when I press copy nothing happens.
I looked at skins in setup and tested the command and got a rather complicated error message.
I have the cdrip.dll in my Cdex folder and have removed all .acm files from sys32 folder.
I am hoping someone can put me right on this
Cheers

Do you have an event linked to the copy button that takes you to the rip screen?

Have a look at exisiting buttons and the events linked to them.

IF there is no link, you have to F2 and make one that you can then referance in the skin editor

I presume that as I am using a preconfigured skin it will have an event or the pluggin would automatically open the cdex application- the play button plays the cd so I think it will have but I will try to check it.

I think that there were events mapped for the cdex functions but the cdex application was not loading should I create a button to launch the application or is there a way to have it launch when I goto the cdex page and close on return to menu?

Although you are right in that every button on a skin should have an event, in the world of XL aways check the easy stuff first :)

I have mine set to go to the cd-rip screen upon cd insert.

cdex should open up in the background and remain hidden.

In the F2 menu under plugins you have given it the location of the cedx.exe?

cdex loocking up drive

Postby lar282 on Tue Oct 11, 2005 1:17 pm

Hi
Has anybody seen this?

1; Ripping a cd. Works great.
2; goto menu
3; popin another cd in the same dvddrive

now I cannot play the audio cd. It's like cdex is locking up the drive. Tried to force the command unload of the cdex plugin but Xlobby craches then!!

Also is this plugin apart of the SDK?Steven said it would be in the first post, but I can't find it?

quote:This plugin will be part of the sdk also, basic thing to take away from this plugin is the ability to access information from programs outside of xlobby, and dont forget the ability to manipulate external programs and their data.

I see the progress but its such a horrrible mess... has somebody figured out a way to parse it to bitesize, usable and neat information?
