The MSTifier
« on: February 15, 2013, 10:30:37 AM »
Howdy folks; long-time MST3K and Rifftrax fan, first-time poster.

Just wanted to share something with the community that I cobbled together, which I call the MSTifier.

The MSTifier is an app which overlays the classic MST3K silhouettes on top of your video, at the bottom of your monitor. The silhouette is pictured at the bottom of this post. Application is coded using AutoIt v3 with code modified from examples on autoitscript.com. I believe most of the credit for the image display code goes to Goldenix over there.

Both compiled executable as well as source script are included. Source script requires GDIPlus.au3 to run or compile.

How to use it:
Launch the application and then use hotkeys (lower-case) as follows:

   p: Show silhouettes
   x: Hide silhouettes
   ESC: quit program

By default, key presses for show/hide are passed through to the active application. I use this for compatibility with XBMC so that the silhouettes appear when I start a video and disappear when I stop the video. This can also be disabled in the .ini file, just change the PASSKEYS value to 0.

Hotkeys are configurable in the .ini file and follow standard AutoIt syntax: http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/Send.htm

I guess that's about it.

Let me know if you like it, and enjoy!
