CDG player possible with AutoIt?

Recommended Posts



I just stumbled upon AutoIt a couple of weeks ago and after seeing some of the excellent example scripts I decided to try making a media player of my own as a way to learn the language. One feature I wanted to add to a player was a Karaoke mode by calling an external cdg player similar to the winamp plugin.

That's when I came across this code written for blitz... Which leads me to my question, do think something similar to this could be written directly in AutoIt?

Here is a link to a great document about cdg files if anyone is interested.

Anyone have an idea how I can split my $Packet variable into individual bytes in an array, so I can do some bitAnd operations on each byte?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#cs; use later for isolating bits
Global $SubCodeCommand      = 9
Global $SubCodeMask         = 63
Global $CDGCommand          = ""
Global $CDGInstruction      = ""
Global $CDGMemoryPreset     = 1
Global $CDGBorderPreset     = 2
Global $CDGTileBlock        = 6
Global $CDGScrollPreset     = 20
Global $CDGScrollCopy       = 24
Global $CDGDefineTransColor = 28
Global $CDGLoadColorTableLo = 30
Global $CDGLoadColorTableHi = 31
Global $CDGTileBlockXOR     = 38

$GUI = GUICreate("", 200, 200, -1, -1)
$GoButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Go", 60, 60, 80, 25, 0)

While 1
    $Msg = GUIGetMsg ()
    Switch $Msg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        case $GoButton
            $SelCDG = FileOpenDialog ("Select CDG File:", "", "CDG Files (*.cdg)")
            $CDGFile = FileOpen ($SelCDG, 16)
            $SubCode = FileRead ($CDGFile)
            $Packet = BinaryMid ($SubCode, 25, 24)
            Msgbox (0, "", $Packet)
