Other pre-launch game things for Applescript to do
Authored by: broaddd on Mar 21, '05 10:02:55PM

On a similar note, I was thinking of doing some 'folder action' Applescripts for my games folders.

For example, when I double click on my Halo folder, I'd like the Applescript to:
- open Toast, mount my Halo disc image (I prefer not to mount physical discs for games, aren't serial numbers enough?), quit Toast
- open System Preferences, set the processor speed to 'highest', quit system preferences
- quit all open applications
- maybe adjust the sound volume from the usual quiet to mid-level
- maybe switch the function key settings, so I can use them in games without holding down the 'fn' key.
- launch the game
- on my quit of the game, revert processor speed to 'automatic', eject disc image, adjust volume, adjust function keys etc.

I thought someone may have done something similar, and I would appreciate any tips, as I am a total newbie to Applescript.

Cheers,
B
