DDE-Message or something similar to open files
« on: January 28, 2007, 14:52:15 »
Hello,
I used the Windoze DDE messages to open multiple tracks in ModPlug Classic without opening dozens of windows. Now I want to use OpenMPT (coz of the ASIO which doesnt work properly in Classic MPT ^^) but the DDE Messages won't work. If I click on a module file without dde enabled, a new OpenMPT window opens.

So: how do I open many modules in the windows explorer in one modplug window? is this possible?

Edit: 3 years later, I found out that the DDE commands were just set up wrong back then. DDE still works in OpenMPT!

You can make a selection in the explorer and drag it into the window of OpenMPT to open all of them.

Thats the best solution I can come up with for the moment. I guess the programmers easilly can program an option to go against multiple instances of OpenMPT.
