Sorry for my ambiguous question. I meant 'how is hardware damage possible?'

The missing taskbar bug still happens in 0.7 (Yes 0.7) It was not fixed by the .net patch, i didn't realise it was intermittent.

Please could you make it possible to turn off/change the sounds.

I dont remember the technics of why.
Probably not a good idea to post it, if I did.

Yeah the taskbar bug, may force me to eliminate the screen saver.
I am using a low-level keyboard hook, which was mostly lifted from Paul Kimmel. It interacts in unforeseen ways, and there may be no solid way around it for now.


The prime sound can be turned off, by simply giving an empty string.
Delete the current path, so none is given.

You are asking about all the sounds though, .. ok I had already made a sound panel for the old version. I'll slip this in.

Default task bar bug eliminated

The new auto-timer works well. Tested on 5 various machines this time.
I'll test 0.8 for another day before a release.
The screen saver hook is taken out, so the bug absolutely does not, and cannont occur. There's no code remaining that hides the taskbar either.

Maybe I can find a solution later, so I can re-insert the screen saver code, but it was unacceptable behaviour.
I could just make the group of windows top level, but it's just not the same look.

Extra edit:
I may revert, to older style code to close LLR/NewPGen. (0.9)
It is usually reliable, at least more so than the .NET process component.
This way any LLR/NewPGen working outside of the folder, won't be killed.

There has been an auto-insertion update for the textbox's, lost focus event.
If the file path does not exist it will not play the sound ofcourse.
An empty string in the rma.ini file should also cancel the sound.

No matter, I am almost done with the new sound form, with toggle.
So far I have included customizable sounds for the following events.

Prime found
Load form
Unload form
New file chosen
Defaults loaded

If there are any other events to be requested, let me know.

Maybe a sound/dialog for 'End of file - Input new range' or whatever.

Not sure what you mean.

When the file completes, it will start a new one automatically.
BTW It is still meant to choose as large of a range as possible to begin with, but this has a limit and so, if unattended it will go on.

A sound here?
Perhaps an option to stop at the end of file, and ask for new range?



EDIT extra
New file sound will activate when a file is completed the way it is now.
If an option to stop is added then, there should also be a new sound for end event. yes?

I have never reached the e.o.f. I assumed it would auto-stop.
I mean, if I just want it to test, say, 210k-410k when it finishes it stops, makes a noise and shows an 'enter new range' dialog.
(I won't be testing large n with this cpu.)

or

(maybe for a later version)
The facility to set a queue of work in a worktodo.ini file.

ie. (k, min,max)
1515,210000,410000
2785,210000,410000

I'm just thinking out loud really.

The priorities for me are:
1) Shrink to icon. (Or similar.) So I can run it unnoticed on my kids' PC.
2) Doesn't close other llr/newpgen. So I can run more than one instance of rma.net or, at least, llr/newpgen. I don't mind agreeing to a disclaimer about hardware damage.
3) No noises I can't turn off.

Sorry, I've just read my post above and realised how garbled it is. The important bit is at the bottom.

These are very reasonable requests.

I've added an optional to stop at the end of file, and if there's no worktodo it will ask. Noise for end of file too. Sounds can be turned off individually in the sound panel(form).

RMA has an icon already,so it was just a matter of placing the form out of the desktop view. You'll be clicking minimize to do this.

I've reverted to WM_CLOSE, so that multi -LLR/NewPgen can be run on the same machine. I'd rather not change RMA to mult-instances but I will try a few tests on it.


I'll need another day or two of testing, to make sure I have'nt forgoten anything that would create a new bug.

Thanks again!

This isn't working, I don't think it can work.
At least not easily, you'd have to track the created handle somehow.
I tried just about everything I can think of.


If anyone knows different?
