MiniAmpDeluxe (Beta Version)

This is a little program created with Hollywood 2.0 that is designed to be a
minimized interface for controlling the main functions of AMPlifier through its
ARexx port. Unlike the regular "MiniAmp," this "deluxe" version does not work
with AmigaAMP, because AmigaAMP lacks the needed ARexx calls.

MiniAmpDeluxe (like MiniAmp) is somewhat skinable (in that the individual
graphical parts can be edited). The default look matches the famous "Zami"
theme. Also included are images to make MiniAmpDeluxe match the "Atez" and "MT"
themes. You can, of course, make your own images as well (just replace the files
"Main.iff," "MainMenu.iff," and "Scroller.iff" in the "Brushes" drawer with the
alternate images of your choice). You can also change the color of the text by
editing the "Preferences" file. (The default color is 90E1FE, but you might want
to use something like ECEA8D if you are using the Atez theme or D8EAAD if you
are using the MT theme.)

The executable file can have its tooltype edited to cause MiniAmpDeluxe to
appear on different screens (PUBSCREEN=<screen name>). Additionally, if you have
MiniAmpDeluxe assigned to a keyboard shortcut, MiniAmpDeluxe will jump to
whatever screen is front and active at the time.

To use:
*Start AMPlifier
*Begin play of a single file or list of mp3s
*Launch MiniAmpDeluxe

Important notes about this "beta" version:
The BAD news:
Right now, Hollywood does not have an ARexx interface, so in order to do
real-time status updates, MiniAmpDeluxe would have to write and rewrite temp
text files every second (and I did not want to do that). But what MiniAmpDeluxe
CAN still do is update track and time information when MiniAmpDeluxe is first
started, and whenever a new mp3 in the list begins to be played, and whenever
the forward or reverse buttons OF MINIAMPDELUXE are used (but not when the
AMPlifier interface is used to change songs). So if you are going to change your
list of songs to be played, close MiniAmpDeluxe, and then restart it after your
new selection(s) has been made. Also, pausing and stopping from AMPlifier while
MiniAmpDeluxe is running will only confuse MiniAmpDeluxe (because right now
there is no real-time status updates). If the following general rule is obeyed,
you should never have any problems: Do not have AMPlifier and MiniAmpDeluxe open
at the same time.

The GOOD news:
Andreas Falkenhahn stated on the Hollywood support forum that an ARexx interface
is planned for the next version of Hollywood. So once the new Hollywood comes
out, the limitations (all the BAD news) of this beta version should disappear.

Change Log:
Version 1.2: Added playlist support.
Version 1.1: Fixed the problem of flickering text that would appear as time went
Version 1.0: First attempt.
