Detailed Reference

setting name
All settings made inside "Addslideshow" GUI can be saved inside
../addslideshow/settings/ if you press "Save Settings". When "Addslideshow" will
be started from CLI or via iBatch, you can pass settings filename as optional

1. cyclegadget
Choose between "fullscreen" and "window" mode for your slideshow

2. cyclegadget
Choose between "slideshow mode" (selfplaying slideshow) or "slideviewer mode"
(navigateable viewer with navigation buttons).

Choose slideshowplayer here. "Basic" ones are designed to run on minimum speced
RTG systems. SlideAndFly will be quiet slow even on SAM440 700Mhz Systems
(Resolutions greater than 640x480), but great on higher speced AROS, Win or Mac

Select screenresolution for resulting slideshow

Depending on your resolution you can select different backgrounds/wallpapers.
Keep in mind, that not every slideshowplayer will display the chosen wallpaper
(basicview and basicshow will not display them). In order to view all available
backgrounds click on previewbutton next to resolution (!) textgadget. If you
just want to view selected wallpaper, press previewbutton next to "background"

Select an imageframe (basicview and basicshow will not display image frames,

In case you chose "slideviewer mode" in 2nd cyclegadget, you can choose
different looking navigation buttons.

Determine transition effect for your slideshow. Depending on your target
platform, you may have to choose "light" transition effects.
Especially 68k Systems tend to slow down if you choose e.g. "Crossfade" or other
"heavy" effects.

width and height: image will be scaled to fit your image frame/window or screen

only height: only height will be scaled, sides will be cut off (This is O.K. for
4:3 images on 4:3 screenresolutions, or 16:9 images on 16:9 screenresolutions)

no upscaling: images smaller than your display area will not be upscaled, images
greater than your display area will be downscaled to fit display area.

use intro
In case you decided to use "slideshow mode" you can display "introtext" before
slideshow starts. Click on ">>" in order to open a texteditor. Here you can
enter text and fontsize for your "intro".

preview button
This will show a preview of your slideshow with "default" images. If you are
using a Amiga OS4.x System please set "Addslideshow-plugin" tooltype to
"PF=os4". This will speedup your preview.

State how long each image should be displayed.

Target Systems:
Addslideshow will copy "slideshowplayers" for each targetsystem into chosen

slideshow.68k: executeable for Amiga OS 3.x 68k Systems with RTG (e.g. UAE)
slideshow.os4: executeable for Amiga OS 4.x PPC Systems
slideshow.exe: executeable for Windows 32bit Systems
slideshow.aros: executeable for AROS x86 Systems
slideshow_Mac-86.app: App dir for Macintosh x86 Systems
slideshow_MacPPC.app: App dir for PPC Macintosh

Donnot take any action, donnot add any files towards your chosen directory.

Save Settings
Save checked and entered options into a file (filename given in textgadget
"setting name:")

More Details
These files will be added to your chosen image directories:

Your chosen wallpaper. It must be there, as slideshowplayer determines
screenresolution via this file.
However you can replace this file manually with any other image file, resulting
in another screenresolution.

slideshow.os4, slideshow.exe,... :
Actual slideshowplayer. Extension depends on targetsystem. Can be renamed expect
for Mac OS executables/app dirs.

slideshow.os4.info, slideshow.aros.info,....
Those icon files are very important, as they can hold a tooltype which can be
changed afterwards:


Enter/delete this in tooltypes, if you do/donnot want fullscreen slideshow.

As windows doesn't have tooltype enter:

"fakefullscreen=true" into this textfile. Remember to rename this textfile also,
in case you rename "slideshow.exe"

Graphicfile holding chosen Image frame (png file with Alpha Channel)

east, west, quit
In case "slideviewer mode" was chosen, these are your buttons.

This is a little textfile which will be used by any slideshowplayer, it holds
infos on scalingmode, delaytime and transition Effect. It's a commented
textfile, just open it and edit if you want. In case you are not satisfied with
selectable transition effects, you could enter any other "Hollywood" Transition
Effect here:

In case you have chosen "slideshow mode" and entered an "intro text" you will
not find sssettings ! Those informations will be saved inside intro.cmnt.
Furthermore intro.cmnt textfile also holds introtext/-fontsizes.
