PlayVCR

Post by Gilgamesh » Mon Aug 22, 2011 10:11 pm

I know I did this before but it was years ago...

I've installed PlayVCR into its own folder in my winplan directory, but Winplan doesn't seem to know it is there. How do I hook the two together?

I'm using the new 32 bit winplan on Windows 7.

Cheers.

Here is the link of you attempt last time 8)

I have to warn you that I do not think the integration will work with the new 32bit version the same way.
Just watch your VCRs externally on PlayVCR before you play your game.

Hi Gilgamesh,
The new winplan 32Bit will look for the vcr.cfg file in its directory. If it finds the file it will read from it the path to the PLayVCR executable and start it with the correct parameters when you click the VCR Button in Winplan.

This was implemented in one of the latest versions.
Version 3.5.104 should have the feature. Latest version is 3.5.107.

Regards

The next version of PCC2/PlayVCR (to be released in a few days) will also be aware of Winplan32 and not write over your winplan.exe.
