Apologies for the gratuitous use of the little monsters - from DOOM of course!
Ok, so I wasted a few hours messing about and came up with this skin for
WinAmp (the great .MP3 player).
AVI Animation stuff...
by one Michael Caracena is a nice simple to use tool for
generating AVI's from lists of images.
I made a couple of crap animations one afternoon, the .AVI's (Zipped) are:
A Video Capture of a 16-legged silicon beastie
and a scribbled drawing captured frame-by-frame
from an edit window in PaintShopPro.
Indeo Video Drivers
The AVI's above are created with Intel Indeo(R) R3.2, so you may need
updated drivers from Intel to play these files. Luckily, I have the URL
Indeo Video Software Driver Versions.
This is a noddy little prog. to strip out carriage returns etc. from
text files so they'll import nicely into a word processor (hopefully!). This
was written primarily for use with an OCR package which generated text files
with carriage returns and spaces all over the place.
The program, readme file etc. is all in a self-extracting ZIP file
which you can download.
Hope it's of some use !
SoundBlaster AWE Stuff....
Here's a nice '9ft Grand Piano' sound bank file. You can load
it into a user bank using the AWE control panel and then patch it in.
Note: If you havn't got any extra memory on your AWE, then you'll
have to set the Synth Bank to General Midi to free up the memory (that's if you normally
have the GS synth bank loaded).
Mission Impossible Theme
This example MIDI file (and a whole lot more) are in this 201KB ZIP file
that you can rack up your phone bill by downloading.
Note: you'd have to be musically taste-free to be able to listen to the midi
of 'Purple Haze' for more than 2.5 seconds!
Video Spectrometer project....
Rather than emailing the stuff, you can get it from
(which really means I can't be a***d to finish it off, but hopefully leaves
you with the impression that I've got heaps of really interesting
stuff that you are itching to know about)
