strange idea.

25 posts in this topic

This may be a bit weird buti decided to Post it.

When playing fm I'm usually listening to my music and hate having to. Alt. Tab out to switch.

In future fm's would it be possible to implement a music player into. The skins?

You could import. Music like itunes. Does

Just a suggestion :)

(If. Your going to. Comment. And say it's bad. Say it nicely don't be a child :))

SI would have to develop a whole media player to save you around 1 mouse click (since you'll still have to click the mouse to change the music)!

Yeah its a bit lazy =P

My computer is a bit slow (brother downloading films) and it always freezes for a bit when alt tabbing I'm sure others have the problem too so it could help them.

I think this would be an excellent idea if possible but would perhaps delay the release of FM10 as it would take alot of work to add the feature. Good idea though :)

Rubbish idea IMO.

There are plenty of other ways to play music without SI assigning time to creating a way within FM when that time would be much better spent in other areas.

It would be an interesting idea, but for me it is not much of a problem as I usually play in windowed mode so I can get to my iTunes at any time without alttabbing out.

Playing in windowed mode would solve that.

I either watch tv online (BBC iplayer, or TVCatchup) on the left side of my screen with FM running on the right side of it.

Plus with the network game im part of the now i have a steam window open for chatting as well on the left hand side, generaly right above the "tv" window.

i reckon it would be good to download team songs like if you was playing at fratton park you would hear play up pompey or paul hart's blue n white army being sung and glory glory man united at old trafford. i think that would be brilliant or if you are doing bad and your fans booing or if doing good they are signing the chairmans name.

That's a great idea actually! I'm sure they could cash in on it aswell... maybe even advertisments and stuf as part of the player. You should go on to Dragons Den with this idea lol

Step 3 - press Ctrl + M to switch to mini-player

I just set a nice long playlist on my Media Player, so I have no need to alt+tab to change the music.

press ALT + ENTER keys together. Also you can change that from [I]Preferences -> Display[/I]. This will not work if your desktop resolution is minimum ie. 1024x768.

Just play the game in window mode, or download a player like winamp.

Create an icon for fm if its not already there.
Right click on that icon and select properties.
On the shortcut tab find the box marked target and add the following

-windowed -small_screen to the end of the target box so it looks like this

[B]"C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009\fm.exe" -windowed -small_screen[/B]

Reboot fm and it should now be in a window.
