1. What Does It Do? — A Short Description
DJ Titler is a small gadget for DJs that displays their current tune
above their head. Additionally, it can also announce the song and messages
in local chat.
DJ Titler works with SHOUTcast and icecast (These are two separate version; please select before purchasing).
You can adjust the color of the titler, or let it cycle through colors.
2. Setup and Operation
Wear the titler. It will attach to your left eyeball. As soon as you attach it, you will see some help messages how to use it in local chat (only you can see this).
Set the IP address of your SHOUTcast stream. To do this simply type
/19 <Your SHOUTcast IP address:Port>
and the titler will start reading the SHOUTcast feed. If your server is
not connected, the titler will display "(Server offline)."
You can turn the DJTitler on or off (show or hide it) by using the following chat commands:
/19 show /19 hide
2.1.1 Announcing Songs
DJ Titler can announce the song in local chat. There are 3 modes: say, shout, and off. To configure announcing, type one of the following in local chat:
/19 announce say /19 announce shout /19 announce off
By default, announcing is set to "say."
2.1.2 Announcing Messages and Recurring Announcements
The titler can also announce messages in local chat. The messages are stored
in the notecard (
/19 interval <Seconds>where <Seconds> is the number of seconds between two announcements. (The announcement interval can only be a multiple of 10 seconds.) If the interval is set to 0
/19 interval 0recurring annoucement of songs and messages is turned off, i.e. the song will only be announced once when a new song starts, and no messages will be sent.
2.1.3 Announcement Delay
The stream can be ahead of what you are hearing in SL. Hence, the DJTitler may
announce songs before they are played in SL. To mitigate this, you can set a delay
so that the titler will announce the songs only after that delay.
/19 delay <Seconds>in local chat, where <Seconds> is the number of seconds by which you want to delay the announcement. (<Seconds> are a multiple of 10 seconds; if the number isn't it will be rounded accordingly.)
2.1.4 Name for Announcing
You can set the name by which the titler announces a song or a message. By default, the name is simply "DJ <Your Name>". You can change it by using
/19 name <New DJTitler Name>
2.2 Wishing Songs
The DJTitler has a built-in facility that lets the audience make requests that will
be shown to the DJ as a popup menu.
/19 wish <Text of the request, e.g. song title and artist>to send a request.
There is a pre-defined message in the DJTitler (" If you have a song wish, please let the DJ know by typing "/19wish <song title and artist>" in local chat. ").
To enable sending the message(s) repeatedly after a period of time, use the command
/19 interval <Seconds>
The message is contained in the notecard "Messages" in the DJTitler's inventory.
2.2.1 Remote Song Requests
The DJTitler also provides the facility to let a remote audience, i.e., an audience that isn't in the same region (or "sim") as you, make song requests. To enable this, you have to set up a transmitter at the remote site. You can use your tip jar to do this, for instance, or you can use any other object at the remote location. Type
/19 givescriptin local chat, and the DJTitler will give you its DJTitler script and place it in your inventory. Drop the DJTitler script in the object you want to use as transmitter. The object now acts similar to the DJTitler, i.e., you can configure it to announce songs and display the particle effect just like the DJTitler. The only difference is that the object won't display any text above it as the titler does. When someone in the audience wishes a song using the
If you want to use the remote object only for transmitting song requests, you don't need to configure it (e.g., provide your stream IP, etc.).
In order to activate the remote mode on your DJTitler, you must enable the receiver. Type
/19 receiver onin local chat to do this.
/19 receiver offturns the remote receiving mode off again.
[Resource usage: activating the remote receiving mode requires one URL.]
2.3 Setting Title, Colors and Particles
You can customize the way your DJTitler looks. For instance you can have some ASCII art with your name in it above the song name. To do this, type
/19 title <Your title here>The title can span multiple lines, use the token \n to insert a line break. A few examples are included in the DJTitler's help notecard.
NOTE: This feature isn't available in the Marquee DJ Titler.
To set titler colors, type
/19 <Color Name>in local chat, where
If you want to let your titler cycle through colors, type
You can also adjust the colors in a finer way by providing the hue of the color as a number from 0 to 360:
/19 color <Hue>Some values for <Hue>, to give you an idea what the color codes mean, are
Every time the song changes, DJTitler displays a cute particle effect. You can turn it on or off by typing
/19 particles onor
/19 particles offin local chat. By default, particles are turned on.
You can also start the particle effect manually by typing
/19 particlesin local chat. This also works if the particles have been turned off.
You can change the particles' colors. By default, the particles start with a random color and do a transition to the titler's color. By typing
/19 particles color <StartColor> <EndColor>you can set both the start and end colors.
<StartColor> and <EndColor> can be
/19 particles color red randomlets the particles start in red and transform to a random color.
2.4 Changing the DJ Titler's Channel
You can change the channel (by default, 19) to which the titler listens to by typing
/19 channel <New Channel Number>in local chat. After setting a new channel number, all the channel numbers "/19" in the chat commands listed in this help are to be replaced by the appropriate, newly selected channel. This includes the audience channel. Make sure that the messages contained in the message notecard in the DJTitler's inventory reflect this change.
