Re: Executing stuff on shutdown, plus standby stuff.

Main.OnClose works on my computer, while System.OnEndSession doesn't Hi there Foune. Have you tried Main.OnEndSession instead of System.OnEndSession to get events to fire when windows shuts down? It's working for me on Windows 10 64 bit. Here's a thread with some info that might help. http://www.ev...

Re: SchedulGhost

I'm not sure if this might prove helpful for some but I'll post it here just in case... :) I was also experiencing the issue of the erroneous layout in SchedulGhost so I decided to test a few scenarios to determine if the issue was one that could be easily fixed and this seems to be the case on my m...

Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

It's no worries kg. I just appreciate your help and tips. :) I'm gonna try a few more things and then cave in and order a transmitter for a couple bucks if it gives me too much heartburn. :lol:

Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

... So I cobbled something together by connecting this LED https://www.taydaelectronics.com/infrared-led-940nm-5mm-tsal7400.html to one leg of this speaker cable https://i5.walmartimages.com/asr/f6c86911-95fc-4a1f-a61c-c21007d6ed35_1.3c8a480157e794b8b9e9118380a17941.jpeg?odnHeight=450&odnWidth=450&o...

Re: Problem with eg.WinApi.SoundMixer.GetMasterVolume()

Hi there Smorebroed, Sadly I'm not a maverick with the program yet but I have found external posts that may or may have have useful information related to your question. I sure hope these might help at least a bit. https://python-forum.io/Thread-How-to-change-the-sound-volume-with-python http://foru...

Re: eg.TriggerEvent Help needed please

Okay, you seem to have figured out what kg was alluding to. The event your triggering is "Main.startweathernow-pt2", this is because of how the "trigger event" action applies the prefix "Main". The event you want to trigger your macro is "startweathernow-pt2", clearly not a match. The easiest way t...

Re: eg.TriggerEvent Help needed please

Hmmm... either I've stumbled onto a bug or perhaps the more likely explanation is that I have no idea what I am doing.... :lol: One way or the other, here's what I've observed... When I add a prefix of "Main." in the python script, eventghost attempts to fire an event called "Main.Main.myeventname" ...

Re: eg.TriggerEvent Help needed please

Ok.... I need a flamethrower and a ton of gasoline! I think I've figured out the difference now... In the previous version of eventghost I could not name an event with "Main." as a prefix because when I went to trigger the event, eventghost would automagically add an additional "Main." prefix so the...

Re: eg.TriggerEvent Help needed please

So I've tried grabbing the python code for the jump action to try to decipher what was happening but it seems that the jump action uses xml ids to jump which is an entirely different beasts... While the jump action can be used as a workaround, that would not really explain what's going wrong so back...

Re: eg.TriggerEvent Help needed please

Taking this one step further, I tried this with a Jump action and it worked as expected and triggered the second macro which then printed "Success" in the log. Still not sure why the pyhton script is not triggering the second action. :(

Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

well that's close. but with blasters they don't use a stereo headphone plug. so what you are going to do is you will wire to the white and the shielding.. the anode (the longer wire on the LED) goes to the white. and the cathode goes to the shielding. ledwiring.jpg Excellent explanation! Thanks a m...

Re: eg.TriggerEvent Help needed please

well i am going to ask you a question.. and lets see if you can figure it out. what is the event that is being triggered? Well I thought it was the event that is named "startweathernow-pt2" isn't it? And I thought that this event would be followed by the python script that prints "success" since it...
