There's probably a big chance you've got a keyboard with media control buttons. Wouldn't it be cool to be able to use those buttons to control famitracker's playback and current song, even when the program is not active (aka "in focus")? I think that would be really great for listening to my own and other people's soundtracks while doing homework or programming.
Oh yeah, like sync-play or whatever it was called does. Don't know if the functions and/or variables to switch songs are available for other programs to use though.
Have a look at https://github.com/techel/Famitracker-Control-with-Media-Keys. There's a bin directory containing the executable. When launched, it stays in the background, waits for the Play/Pause/Stop media control keys and notifies any instance of Famitracker. It does successfully work with Famitracker 0.4.6 and 0.5b.
Awesome! Will check this out when I get home. Thanks!
