Welcome to the ADX Frontend mini wiki at Scratchpad!

Welcome to the temporary ADX Encoder Frontend Help Wiki!

It may seem crowded, which it is, but once I have the time and the approval of my admin host, I'll put up a MediaWiki on my personal website. If not, I'll find somewhere to place it.

If you know of a host that offers free MediaWiki hosting, even for minimal information based on my ADX Frontend, don't hesitate to send me an email at djdarkx2006@gmail.com

Usage

General usage information. As the program keeps inproving, I'll add more and change some content around.

Menus

File > Exit
Simple exit out of the program.

Help > Online Help
Brings you here, or to the latest location of the help wiki. A new location will be provided via a patch file.

Help > Offline Help
Brings up your defualt browser and opens the help file that comes with the program.

Help > About...
Simple custom About box will appear. To make it disappear, simply click anywhere on the About box and it will go back to the frontend.

Interface

Most aspects of the interface are easy to understand. There are some, on the other hand, that are not easily understood since I really didn't add captions and the such.

Load
Allows you load a WAV file via the File Selector.

Save
Allows you to choose a target folder in which to save it to. Mine is usually C:\ADX\Music.

Save Loop
Saves your loop points to the file "adxfilename.lp" in the same directory as the frontend. The .lp files are simply text files with a different extension. STILL IN DEVELOPMENT!

Load Loop
Opens up a file selector so that you can load a .lp file. STILL IN DEVELOPMENT!

Encode
Opens the program adxencd.exe and encodes the WAV to an ADX file. After that, you may open the ADX in Winamp for testing.

Clear
Clears out all the information that was entered into all the fields.

Bugs

That I know of, there are no known bugs, but since the program is not yet finished, I can not say that for sure. If you'd like to beta test the software, contact me at the email address I provided above.
