Voyager Themes

Some time ago I wrote a program called NewMail to intercept messages from various Voyager internet suite and make appropriate sounds, so that Voyager users would have the same "You have mail"-type notification system that some PC users, notably those on AOL, had. The original samples were expanded upon by themed packs, mostly using samples from popular TV shows and films.

In time Voyager 2 was released, and SoundTheme was divised. This expands on the original NewMail and can respond to almost any Voyager event, plus has the option controls built into the main Voyager program. Voyager 2 also had the ability to have image themes, and both image and sound themes could be stored in such a way that more than one could be present in the program and chosen from a menu, instead of having to overwrite the original sprite or sample files.


Sound Theme

SoundTheme.vix
26KB
The program needed to get Voyager playing sound themes. Stored as a VIX module, just drop the file onto the large arrow on the VIX Manager window.

To select new themes once they've been installed, you can use the Theme manager - it also allows other options such as size of icons, position of LEDs, and sound volume.


Documentation

You can find information on creating your own themes - both sound and image themes - at http://www.argonet.co.uk/vixen/themes.html
