• make the bbs machine beep

    From Veetid@VERT to All on Thu Jul 19 18:22:00 2001
    I've programmed a baja mod that jazzes up the sysop pager.. it's mostly cosmetic, but there are a few handy features.. asks why the person wants to page the sysop, logs the reason., etc..

    Question is.. what would be the best way to make the bbs machine beep on the sysop's end? sending beeps to the user is simple.. use the @beep@ code.. but I want to hear it on the bbs machine too..

    I'm sure there are workarounds.. but I'm looking for something to just beep
    as my percent-o-meter goes up during the page.. nothing fancy..

    There is currently no "local beep" Baja function. :-(

    Why not have it play a MP3 you recorded using MediaPlayer.

    I went into SBBS config,

    External Sysop Chat Pagers

    [Insert] a new one
    Command Line %!mplayer2 sysopage.wav
    Access Requirements Level 50

    you could do this with any requirement or user flag,
    people worthy of getting your attention can get a level or flag that triggers a specific WAV to play.

    You could set up a bunch of wavs for new users, friends and family...

    you really don't have to go into baja, but you may still be able to execute an external program from in a baja script, I haven't played with it.
    Oh the above command line, I think I put a copy of mplayer2.exe into my exec directory with the wav files.

    hope this helps.

    _____________________________________

    Ok, after checking this out I found my pager stopped working, It used to work as is, I am now running SBBS 3.1b .....

    I changed my program to call from mplayer2 to mediaplayer and it still would not work, I looked at the properties of the file sysopager2.wav and found media player was looking for it in C:\SBBS\CTRL not EXEC like I had it, so I moved
    a copy of the wav file to the SBBS\ctrl\ directory and it works again.

    I am not sure what happened here. But this seemed to fix the problem.

    Why not have it play a MP3 you recorded using MediaPlayer.

    or better yet..use that sound.js to play a wav file.
    speaking of sounds..i'm looking for a "modem connect" wav for when i get a caller..i use a ring.wav.. but i want the actual modem music..
    if ya got one please send it to eob_bbs@dork.com, i'll trade
    you a doormud reg code for it! just kidding evan. (evan is ignoring me, had to get his attention somehow.)
    also, if the guy wantst the beeping..cant he just use the shell to dos with echo ^G? if you want to go ole sk00l.
