Development : : MUI Royale 1.0 for Hollywood released
Posted By: softwarefailure. on 2013/1/1 13:51:21
This is it! Airsoft Softwair has saved their greatest firework for New Year's Day! MUI Royale is a plugin for Hollywood that finally allows you to easily create MUI GUIs with Hollywood. MUI Royale supports over 40 MUI classes including popular third-party classes like TextEditor.mcc and TheBar.mcc. Creating and managing menustrips is also fully supported. The plugin sets new standards concerning the ease of use because the GUI layout can be conveniently defined using an XML file that is converted into a MUI GUI by MUI Royale on the fly. GUI design has never been so easy! Of course, new features of MUI 3.9 (AmigaOS 4) and MUI 4.0 (MorphOS) are also supported.

The highlight of MUI Royale, however, is certainly its inbuilt Hollywood MUI class. This class allows dynamic embedding of complete Hollywood displays into MUI GUIs which can be used to combine the best of both worlds - MUI's proven GUI skills and Hollywood's unequalled multimedia capabilities - into one powerful application, limited by the scope of your creativity only.

MUI Royale requires at least Hollywood 5.2 and is provided free of charge for all users of Hollywood. It is available for AmigaOS 3 (m68k), AmigaOS 4 (PPC), MorphOS (PPC), and AROS (i386). The package comes with almost 20 example scripts, many of which are direct ports from the MUI 3.8 SDK by Stefan Stuntz, but there are also original developments like demonstrations of how to create a video player using the combined power of Hollywood and MUI. On top of that MUI Royale comes with extensive documentation as a 280 page PDF file which is also available in the HTML, AmigaGuide, and CHM formats thanks to the Hollywood documentation system.

All this makes MUI Royale the truly royal MUI experience, carefully crafted for you Kings and Queens of MUI! (screenshots: shot1.png shot2.png shot3.png)

    A big big thank you! Finally it will be easily possible to make Hollywood programs that look and feel professional and native. I am really stunned and agape. Hats off!

    Interesting if one can create own private custom classes using it.

    This is something I'd like to try - is there a trial version of Hollywood 5.2 and this MUI plugin somewhere? Is that what the http://www.hollywood-mal.com/download/Hollywood_SDK.lha file is?

    If I recall from previous threads, Hollywood is not currently for sale... Why?

    There's no demo version available except one for Windows. That one of course lacks the MUI plugin. The reasons why Hollywood is currently not on sale are not publically known. But Andreas said it will be on sale again one day and since he puts that much effort into this project I don't have the slightest doubts he's not trying to bring it back on sale. I am happy though to have my copy already (since 1.x days) and really enjoy Holllywood.
