First I need to say thank you for this plugin! I am using this plugin to launch GameEx and Zinc. I have however found a (minor) issue.

It seems that while MP is minimized it still accepts certain input from the remote when I am operating one of my launched programs. I can tell MP is still accepting input from the remote because I hear its navigation sounds and when I go back to MP another menu item is sometimes selected. I know that the back button and the paging buttons do this. I am using an MCE remote.

My request is that the plugin also suspends MP's input when in another program. I implemented this on the MyEmulators plugin so if you need the code you can either look in that plugin's source code or you could PM me and I can send it to you.

Thanks once again. :)

    Re: MultiShortcut plugin.

    hey, great plugin, thanks a lot.
    it would be great if you could add an option to change the behavior of the virtual keyboard,
    to use it as password prompt. e.g. typing "hello" and showing "*****".
    since mp is using this kind of virtual keyboard to enter pins, it shlould be easy to add.

    thanks :)

    Hello,
    Not sure it's a good idea because, virtual keyboard is not only for password but also, for parameters.
    Regards.

    hi,
    i thought about a extra option in the config or something like this, so everybody could choose by himself if he wants ****' or not =).

    something like this:

    Version 1.8 on first post will answer your need.
    I leave older 1.7 version on first post for the moment because, I'm not sure MultiShortcut will work with your MP version.

    Re: MultiShortcut plugin.

    hey framug, i was wondering, could you make it that the words that start with # in the arguments string (as configured) are replaced before starting the program with their property values..

    so for example i can set this as argument in multishortcut configuration: "#TestingStartPage #TestingZoom". then before calling multishortcut window, i would set those two gui properties to for example "www.google.com" and "100" and the program will be called with those arguments..

    thanks :)
