    I don't think so as it seems to work OK here - if you try it and have a problem, please let us know what happened.

    I have been using this utility and now I am using PVRX2. Has anyone out there compiled a version that will start and monitor PVRX2?

    Thanks!

    Talking PVRX2 Users - Try This

    Well, I took a stab at it and while I managed to get PVRX2 to start instead of GBPVR, I wasn't able to get the focus feature working. (I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that I am running PVRX2 on a secondary monitor...)

    The only change I made to the source code was replacing gbpvr.exe with pvrx2.exe in the declared variables section. If something else needs to be changed then I wouldn't know where to make that change. Nothing jumped out at me as I looked through the source code.

    Of course, you will need to rename the attached .txt file to .au3 and compile it yourself (can't attach .exe files). Compiling your own .exe is as simple as installing AutoIt, opening your start_pvrx2.au3 file, and selecting Compile from the Tools menu. Your new .exe file will appear wherever your source .au3 file is located.

    I compiled the script and fro some reason it would only work once. When start_pvrx2 was launched it would start pvrx2 but if you exited pvrx2 then it would not restart it.

    I edited the script, did some more searching and replacing nearly all of the the instances of the string gbpvr with pvrx2 so items like the popup wouldn't say "starting gbpvr" and recompiled and now it works great just as expected. No focus problems.

    Attached is the script.

    Thanks Uisge! That did the trick. Although, I find the "focus" feature to be a little too robust. I've had to click onto this window several times while typing this message to keep the focus on this firefox session. Still, this is perfect for a dedicated box.

    I've made a new version of the script that does the following:

    • Defaults to launching PVRX2 in windowed mode, instead of the old UI (GBPVR).
    • Takes new command line parameters:
      • GBPVR - Launch the OLD UI
      • FullScreen - When launching PVRX2, launch in full screen exclusive mode
    • When the splash countdown screen is displayed, you may press Escape. This will pause the countdown and provide the option to abort or continue the script. (Helpful when in full screen exclusive mode)
    Code and executable are in the attached zip. Not sure if there are bugs (first time I've used this scripting language), so I have not posted on the Wiki.

    Great to see you guys picking this up where I left it. Haven't gone to PVRX2 (too many issues for my system!), hence my having left this project alone. Must try again when I've got more time...
