NextPreviousHomeRandomly playing from a folder of shows?

terrypin | 9 years ago | 4 comments | 1,635 views

At present when I run BT it plays a show apparently randomly selected from the BT Startup folder. It then stops. (The menu item 'Control > Forward' is greyed.) Can I get it to play a succession of random shows, either from that folder or another of my choosing please?

Yes you can with the /O command line option:

Thanks. I didn't find that documenation very clear but I eventually came up with a command that worked.

For anyone else having difficulty who ends up in this thread, here's my example. Despite the inclusion of a specific file, it plays a random show in the Startup folder and then plays random shows successively.

"C:\Outerspace Software\BluffTitler\BluffTitler.exe" "C:\Outerspace Software\BluffTitler\Media\Shows\Startup\Airbrush.bt" /O=R

On subsequent tests I found that I must have been mistaken about it opening INITIALLY in a random show. It actually always opens with the specified file. (Well, at least on 5 successive tests it did.) Is there some way to make that small improvement?

Yes, it opens with the show you specify. After that it plays the shows it that folder in random order.

Maybe you could workaround by creating a totally black show of only 1 second and using this as your first show.
