Development (General) / Request: a command to change sound volume
« on: November 26, 2018, 02:58:58 PM »
This is a help request to current Amiga developers. Unluckily I do not have the skill to do this by myself, but I guess many of you are. I'd need a simple utility in C to change the sound volume with AHI. A quick implementation of it would just change the 'main' volume, from 0 to 100%, for all the available music and audio units. Would anyone volounteer? Requisites: being open source and straight-to-compile on any Amiganoid system and platform.

My intermediate goal is just having the cance to open a shell window and give a command like

ahivolume 0 --> to set the overall sound volume to null
ahivolume 100 --> to set the overall sound volume to max

and obviously any intermediate value in the range 0-100, independently from the physical device used for sound (it shall work with any audio driver / audio mode).

Is this feasible? Or are ther technical problems making it a complete mess? Thank you.

The final (longer term) goal will be, at least on Icaros Desktop, writing a simple GUI/frontend in lua with a slider, a mute and a setting button, but I should be able to do this by myself.

Development (General) / Compiling "Advice" - functions.h missing
« on: November 21, 2018, 10:23:25 AM »
Hello, I am trying to compile "Advice" (a freeware RequestChoice alternative which allows using txt files as BODY) I found here:

I entered the src directory and gave this command
gcc -o advice advice.c

It stops almost immediately due to this missing "functions.h" include. I wonder: where should I take this .h file from? i've noticed there is a file with same name in develompent:lib/gcc/i386-aros/4.6.4/include/c++/debug, but I guess it's not the needed one. I've tried copying it in development:include/ but building stops with an error.

Can someone please help me?

BTW: I perfectly know I can use requestchoice and the ${filename} value as BODY parameter, problem here is that I would need to add *N to every line feed in the txt file, and this is not something I'd really want to do... :-)

Hello! What's happened here? A brand new AROS-EXEC forum!? That's wonderful! This also means a brand new support forum for Icaros Desktop as well.

Rules are always the same, anyway.
