GensokyoRadio Receiver ~ Tune in to the latest Touhou Music
« on: October 13, 2017, 06:23:07 PM »
GensokyoRadio.net Receiver
Project website: http://lunarcast.net

IRC Channel: #LunarCast at irc.ppirc.net


What is this:
A simple and lightweight receiver application for the GensokyoRadio.net service that also receives metadata such as song name, album, year, artist/circle etc.  No need for browsers or media players, just launch the receiver and tune in.

Image(s):

Update 1.03c:
*Fixed the text selection Caret only being hidden on song name but not on other fields.
*Now it only asks if you want to minimize to the tray if you close it via the [X] button and will not ask on System Shutdown or Task Manager End Program.

Update 1.03b:
*Fixed a rare error when restoring the window from being minimized.

Update 1.03: Many improvements, recommended that you update!
+Added copying of song metadata, you can select text with the mouse now.
+Added Minimize to System Tray and you can right click on the icon to Play/Pause/Stop.  Make sure to set the icon to always be visible!
*Now consumes less bandwidth and system resources while minimized (both normally and tray)
*Song time indicators and time bar synchronize faster and more accurately with the radio station
*Fixed error messages that you might rarely randomly receive and also a rare error when closing the program.

Download 1.03b: http://file.lunarcast.net/gensokyo_radio/latest/GenRadio.exe

Download 1.03b PDB Debug Files: http://file.lunarcast.net/gensokyo_radio/latest/GenRadio.pdb (Needed for debugging crashes, use Visual Studio as debugger)

Requirements:
If you are running Windows Vista or later you skip all this, your computer already has everything!
For Windows 98 / ME / 2000 / XP you will need to install the .NET Framework 2.0: https://www.mediafire.com/file/40rnvab66z4d34q/netfx20.exe
For Windows XP/2003 64 bit you will need to install the .NET Framework 2.0 64 bit edition: https://www.mediafire.com/file/yvxhgya7rzzaip2/NetFx20_64.exe
For Linux and Macintosh you will have to run it via Mono.
For ReactOS you can either use the .NET Framework 2.0+ or Mono (You will also need sound drivers!).

Released Update 1.03
It is recommended everyone updates as this is a big improvement with minimize to tray, right click controls on tray icon and faster/more accurate metadata!
Support for visual themes turned off is also improved as the progress bars will retain their colors even with the Classic Theme.
It also consumes less bandwidth when minimized now as it does not fetch metadata.

Very cool, have been using this for work and casual listening and it works pretty well.  Link is broken however, doesn't lead to the right page.

It looks like the link to the Discord server has expired.

Updated in image on the OP to reflect the current version, and does not have the ugly zoom anymore

Update 1.03d has been released!
Minor bugfixes and updated the application's icon to include more sizes and avoid anti aliasing / bluring.
