(solved) Control Winamp within BC2

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Exactly what the title says. I can't figure out how to do this with my global hotkeys. Google has let me down. I don't want some program that makes me press a bunch of key combos to open some transparent window and then press more buttons. I tried PXP, but it didn't work in Windows 7.

I just want to push one button to change a song, another to go back etc..

edit: I also have a G13 gamepad but I could never find a Winamp applet that was able to control the music. I doubt that would work in game anyways since Winamp controls bound to the g13 don't work either.

Sweet! It took some finagling but I made a G13 macro that works in conjunction with Steam. Would also work with any other macro-able keyboards too that let you record macros with delays.

It does Shift + Tab + Pause Key (my 'next song' key) + Shift + Tab with 50 millisecond delays in between. I tried going for shorter delays but it wasn't having any of it.

What happens then is I bind that macro to a G13 key and it quickly flashes the Steam overlay open, changes the song then closes the overlay. All in under one second!

Yay! yessir.gif
