UPDATE YOUR BOOKMARKS!!!
We have an issue that there is no way around as of yet.
I have done all I can to try and prevent this from happening.
We are going to be losing the .com, .org and .de domains.
We have not been able to contact the original author of EventGhost
(the person that owns those domains) to redirect them to the new web server.
I set in motion when we first moved a redirection from the old server to the new server.
I also put in markers so that search engines would see this change and update any pointers
they have. We still have the .net domain for the production site. and the .rocks for the test site.
For the past few months you have been getting redirected to the .net site if you used one of the 3
domains mentioned above. I just wanted to tell everyone so they can make any changes needed.
Having a similar problem. Volume control works just fine but stops working when I have headphones attached (either via Bluetooth or jack). Is that a known problem? If not, is there a page outlining what steps should be taken to generate a useful bug report or indeed how to debug EventGhost?
Had a look at EventGhost code and it turned out that it calls Windows API's mixerGetLineInfo with mixer line type of MIXERLINE_COMPONENTTYPE_DST_SPEAKERS, so understandably it does not work correctly with headphones. I wrote a simple C++ volume control app that I now call in EventGhost (Windows Command action) that uses Vista+ API to detect the current default playback device (speakers, headphones, amp) and adjust its volume. Works a treat on my Windows 7 and Windows 10.
If anyone's interested, it's just been pushed to GitHub. I guess there are more clever ways to do that but this is what I found most straightforward
Yes, I had to downgrade urgently because of the volume not working in windows.
I suppose one could use nircmd, but this is really an inelegant solution for a major function of EG.
I'd like to also take this opportunity to say thank you to all of you for keeping this project alive. Eventghost is one of my Top 10 beloved apps of all time that I use daily (along with big names like One Note and Sandboxie). It is very, very much appreciated.
I think it's a driver problem rather than one with Windows 10 directly.
After the upgrade, I noticed that my old driver was gone and I had a M$ driver installed for my soundcard and Volume control didn't work correctly.
But after I updated the sound driver with the one provided on the manufacturer website (in my case Realtek) it was working just like before the windows upgrade.
