Hi folks.

I've made a program which launches osu!.exe with windows mixer's master volume set to 0 and later increases it back to the old user defined one, giving more of a smooth start of osu!'s sound.
How does it work? It detects osu!'s window title, if it finds it, the volume process begins.
- Requires .NET Framework 4 to operate
- supports both 32bit and 64bit
- not sure if it will work on Windows XP


Note: Extract the contents in your osu! folder, osu!calm.exe starts osu!.exe, IT DOES NOT WORK WITH OSU!TEST (yet)
Heres a demonstration.


Updates will follow, if you're going to use this app, monitor this thread every now and then!
Feel free to test it out and please post a comment in the thread with feedback if possible.

v12.03a
Do not allow to start while osu! is running.
Show the status dialog only for me.
Program icon changed.
Set program to allow only one instance running.

v13.03a
New detect method - check if the osu! window text handle is present. NEEDS TESTING!
Huge code tidyup. (Now using only 2 timers!)
Remove status dialog completely

r4
Use a new versioning style that actually makes sense.
Remove redundant code from previous detection method which wasnt being used at all.

Really nice! But for me it fail to start xD It say that osu!.exe is not found but it is in the same folder :?



Will there be a version where it does the same thing but with osu!test.exe? :)

After some testing with Sulker, ive improved it a bit. Link updated in my first post.

The volume change will trigger when osu!.exe starts using more than 100mb of RAM.

i'll use this to start osu! from now on :) ty for this

Woot. Now hopefully it should work somewhat okay from my testing ;)

Would love to see this integrated in the osu! build. :D

Nice work

Tested the 13.03a build. Seems pretty great and working perfectly as the last build you gave me @LoliFlan.

I did found these though.

1.) Opening it twice messes up the program and makes it change the system volume before opening osu!
2.) Opening it three or multiple times end up making it crash sometimes or end up doing whats above^

Recommend you find a way to only let it open one instance of osu!calm

Oh and the icon didn't change for me :lol:
Never mind...it did :lol:

Even though I set it as a single instance application? Thats strange.
Currently I havent succeeded in fixing this, pretty awkward.

Well hopefully the next update will be better :D

Sadly I can't figure out how to prevent it, I'll just leave as it is.Up to the user if he/she wants to spamclick the application like a retard or actually use it for the purpose its made for.

Alright. PM me next time for another update test then ^^.
