XTrace - 1.1

XTrace allows you to receive trace() data without having to be in the flash IDE. XTrace wraps around a custom socket server I wrote in java that will accept connections via XMLSocket on port 9994. To easily send trace data to the 'trace server' you can use the custom debug class included with the download. After calling debug.initSocket(""); all data passed to debug.trace() will be send through a socket and given to the 'trace server'. XTrace will display the data received from the 'trace server' in a floating window.

What's new in this version:

* CMD+Shift+C now clears the log window
* XTrace now automatically starts the trace server
* Added the Sparkle (auto updating) framework
* Added the ability to disable wrapping in the log window
* Added the option for window auto-close (log window will close when the SWF it is connected to closes)
* New icon thanks to Ale!
* Log message coloring/formatting thanks to Daniel Giribet
* Compiled & tested as a universal binary

Subliminal Message - 4.3.0

Subliminal Message helps you explore the idea of subliminal messages.

There are three modes: Text, Picture and Both. Set the mode. Set the on-screen time (1 - 50 ms), the time between flashes (2 - 30 sec), the message font darkness/picture darkness color, bold on/off and size and let the program run in the background. Use the default messages or enter your own messages. All settings and messages are saved between sessions.

Because of its power and influence at the subliminal level, this effect is not allowed on TV in many countries.

What's new in this version:

Version 4.3 adds a third mode (Both) which flashes both text and pictures.

Metronome - 1.6

Metronome is a free metronome for Mac OS X.

Most functions (start/stop, change tempo &etc) use only one key to facilitate one-handed operation.

A unique Accelerator - begin a difficult piece slowly and gradually speed up by any rate to any maximum tempo

A Tempo Finder - use any key to tap a tempo and put it into the metronome

Save favourite settings for easy re-loading.

What's new in this version:

* Added the ability to make the Accelerator slow down as well as speed up. To slow down, simply add a '-' (minus, or subtract) symbol before the rate of acceleration in the Accelerator panel.
* Added the ability to lock saved settings files to prevent accidental deletion
* Reduced the size of the Accelerator and Tempo Finder panels to increase available screen space.
* Made the bell sound on the first beat of the bar, instead of the last beat(!).
* Fixed a bug I'd introduced where the state of checkboxes in the Preferences window weren't being saved correctly.
* Added a warning sheet when Metronome first runs to alert the user to the fact that the Metronome may beat unevenly in some cases where the computer has third party non-standard sound hardware.

Sync-Hole - 0.8

Sync-Hole lets you fix your movies that are out of sync. You open a movie, play it until you detect an asynchronism, then tell the app wether you think the video or the audio is ahead, and by how much. Sync-Hole adjusts either the audio offset or the video framerate as appropriate. Then you set an "anchor" before and after the scene that is synchronized, and move on. Sync-Hole only changes the framerate in between anchors. It is basically a fancy wrapper for the Quicktime Framework function, ScaleTrackSegment. Other little features allow you to jump forward or back by a certain distance, or to jump to the spot half-way between the two most distant "anchors". Important bug: It seems that the program freezes if you set the playhead to a point in the movie where there's audio but no video. I don't know what causes this, or how to fix it. The source code is available, so maybe someone out there can fix the problem!

What's new in this version:

* Universal Binary
* "Save" now available in addition to "Save As"
* Now voluntary donationware (to charity)
