Me and my friend at college are messing around with computers and are trying to get his personal one pretty much all on a starcraft theme. We have been getting pretty far, his OS is Windows 7 Build 7600. We want to get it so that if a wrong password is entered, it says "Access Code Denied" in the old starcraft synthesized-like female voice. We have the audio clips, but we need to figure out how to incorporate that sound. It's obviously not in Control Panel -> Sound -> Sounds, as I found out
I did some intensive googling, and I came to the conclusion that it involves a bit of registry adding and visual basic. I don't know squat about VB and I only know a small bit of how regedit works.
Here is what I have extracted so far:
On an event like "windows logon" there is a linked .dll file
Really it says this, verbatim:
Name Type Data
(Default) Reg_SZ Windows Logon
DispFile Name Reg_SZ @mmres, -5853
To actually add to the registry an event like this, I went here: CodeProject: Creating Your Own Sound Alerts. Free source code and programming help
So what I understand is, the only thing I am missing is the switch at the end. I think that the data field will still have mmres.dll, but I still need the switch, such as mmres, -wxyz
I don't know if this place would happen to have a couple visual basic peeps, but this is something that started out as a light side project to a gaint plan to pretty much make his dorm room a totally decked out man cave. If anyone knows how to do this, please tell! I don't care anymore if its a youtube video or a heap of text, doesnt matter to me.
Btw, sorry for the long ass post, but I have problems shortening things up. ^^
Cheers and big ups, djdaft
