You're welcome.  Thanks for the DC credits, too.   cheesy

I set up a couple of test folders, each with 80,000 one meg files.  From my tests, using FileRecycle will cause the issues you saw.  When I used FileDelete, the script took about five seconds to run with little to no hit to CPU and RAM.

Nice work, MilesAhead.   Thmbsup

Here's a script that handles both scenarios.  It should be pretty self-explanatory.  Comment/uncomment the message box and delete/recycle lines as necessary.

Formatted for Autohotkey with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. Path := "C:\tmp\04"
  2. Mode := "K" ; "Use K to keep every Nth file or D to delete every Nth file."
  3. N := 5
  4.  
  5. Loop, % Path . "\*.png"
  6. {
  7.    If ( Mode = "K" )
  8.    {
  9.        If ( Mod( A_Index, N ) != 0 )
  10.        {
  11.            MsgBox, % "Delete: " . A_LoopFileFullPath
  12.            ; FileRecycle, % A_LoopFileFullPath
  13.            ; FileDelete, % A_LoopFileFullPath
  14.        }
  15.    }
  16.    Else If ( Mode = "D" )
  17.    {
  18.        If ( Mod( A_Index, N ) = 0 )
  19.        {
  20.            MsgBox, % "Delete: " . A_LoopFileFullPath
  21.            ; FileRecycle, % A_LoopFileFullPath
  22.            ; FileDelete, % A_LoopFileFullPath
  23.        }        
  24.    }
  25. }

BTW, any chance for making the command line profile call relative/ portable? Not meaning to be obnoxious or pushy, just wondering if it might get implemented in some future version. I'd rather wait than start tinkering with work-arounds.

Relative paths should work and they should be relative to the Splat.exe location.  Did you try and have it not work?

What's the recommended way to close applications that reside in the tray? I have things there like clipboard manager and LaunchbarCommander - none of them close with the regular close -command, I get an error that it cannot close.

Some programs don't respond to WM_CLOSE messages.  In those cases, you have to try the Kill option.  Check out the help file for the Kill action or use the web version here: http://skwire.dcmembers.com/apps/splat/help/index.html?kill_application.htm

Thank you, skwire!

You're welcome.  I actually wrote an AHK front-end for that many years ago but once Everything was developed, there was no reason for me to use the front-end anymore.

Hi, phig, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.

hello and many thanks for this great tool!

You're very welcome.

this is a very good idea! batch conversion of many pdf to cbr/z with the same name. very usefull for conversion of collections!

Just to clarify, is this a feature request?

Wow! that was fast!
Thank you so much!

You're welcome.  Unfortunately, for now, there's no way to STOP a running profile short of exiting Splat.  I'll try to get that worked in soon.

I could use your program to launch a process say each 2-3 hours to pause Vidcoder, wait 30 minutes and terminate that process to Vidcoder keep encoding.
But I need to loop this process at least to Vidcoder finish your jobs.

Splat can call a profile so you could make this work like this:

Please update to the latest Splat v1.1.7 to get the new wait intervals.

He mentioned this is an American laptop so I'm doubtful it has an AltGr key.
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: pound symbol on: April 15, 2015, 12:14:05 PM
I tried to hold down ALT and type the numbers, but nothing happened

Alt-0163 is the keycode but I'm going to guess that, since you mentioned laptop, the problem is that you have to use the number keypad when entering the numerals.  That is, the number keys above the letters won't work.  You should be able to overcome this with a simple AHK script:

[copy or print]
^1:: Send, £ ; Use Ctrl+1 to send the pound symbol.

I'm not sure if this might be better served by a separate app entirely, but might be handy if it's incorporated into sPlaylistmaker as well.

Correct, this is better suited to a file renaming application.

I can usually get the correct names into a text file (1 per line) to match the media files so having some way to automatically merge the correct names onto the existing files would save a lot of renaming work.
I have a file renaming utility that can do this albeit in a clumsy way - maybe you could find a elegant and simple solution?

When I want to do freestyle renaming like this, I use one of two programs (depending on how fancy I need to get with the text editing): SpeedRenamer and Freename

Note that SpeedRenamer's website is in German but the program is in English.

I don't know what the issue is.  I've tested the application under Win7 Ultimate (64-bit) and it works for me.
15  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: turn IE proxy server on/off on: April 11, 2015, 12:29:58 PM
You mentioned this is a work computer. Perhaps the proxy settings are locked down?

thanks. but unfortunately, this app does not work for me. i use windows 7 on my work laptop.

Can you try running it with administrator rights, please?

I work on my PC, and play games, but I also photo edit with professional software.  Sometimes, I need slower mouse speeds for my photo editing.  The only thing that I've found is for setting differences between a laptop touchpad and a usb mouse.  This would really help me out.  Thank you.

Perhaps my Mat (Mouse Acceleration Toggler) program would work for your needs?

Hey how's it going?

Unfortunately, my regular job hasn't left me with much coding time lately.  Apologies.

In the meantime, I stumbled upon a bug, a minor one: reordering entries in a profile doesn't work when drag and drop is used.

Good catch.  Thank you for reporting that.  Should be fixed here:

Hi, billo255, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.  Apologies for the late reply.

Just to add another voice to the list regarding "artifacts" I've go them as well.

Are you running XP as well?

A major issue that seems to be intermittent on my version of epCheck (and what prompted me to join this forum today) is the loss of checkmarks after doing a refresh.

Are you running the beta version, by chance?  If not, I made some improvements in the beta that, hopefully, solve the issue:

http://www.donationcoder....36877.msg368839#msg368839

As the post says...back up your data first if you want to try it.  However, if you do, please let me know if the issue still appears.

-Wish List -
1.  Display unwatched back episodes.

I'll add this to my ToDo but I wouldn't hold my breath for this one.

2.  Cancelled, Ended, Continuing, Summar - When a show is pulled off the air and I've watched all of the episodes I delete the series from epCheck. Rather than having to scroll through all of the series to see if the status has changed, a tab showing a list of all of the series and the status might be be a useful feature to catch shows that were reportedly being ended but then revived (i.e. Unforgettable and Perception). It might not be 100% effective but would save having to  scroll through all of the series after a refresh to see if anything has changed. (Also, maybe the series name could be color coded to identify its status?  red=ended/ending, green=continuing, orange=on the bubble?)

Colouring the series shouldn't be difficult but I'm not sure how I would determing an on-the-bubble show.  I can only go off the status data in the data files.

At any rate, it'll be several weeks, at least, before I can get back to coding much.  My regular day job is keeping me quite busy at the moment.   Sad

Nice job on creating a useful tool for us TV'o'phile's who only want to track our favorite shows.

Thank you for the kind words.  It's been a fun application to write and I'm glad you find it useful.

Hi, AtmanActive, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.  Apologies for the late reply.

I'm glad you like the software and you do make a good argument.  However, it'll be several weeks, at least, before I could possibly start adding something like this.  My regular day job is rather busy at the moment.  I'll keep it in mind, though.   cheesy

Good point.  I'd have to add a "Clear" button or something similar.
