There is no proper documentation right now, but on the other hand, DJ Cronnor will complain if something isn't right.
Please let it know if something isn't clear at once. We will then adjust the software so that it is trivial to use, and on the other hand, place any asked questions on this page.
The most important things to get started are:
Download and install the Java Runtime Environment (any version on this page will do)
Download and install DJCronnor itsself
Windows only: download and install ASIO drivers that came with your soundcard, or install ASIO4all, for life-usage reaction speed to your keyboard strikes.
Set your display to 1024x768 (not necessary though), as this is the best resolution to run DJ Cronnor
Start DJCronnor, and don't touch that mouse.
Don't use the mouse
Remember that you do not need the mouse
To set some settings (like where your audio folder is, and which soundcard to use), press the scroll-lock.
- After locating your collection, just type in any name (like the letter 'e') and press enter to search through your files.
- Now press up and down to scroll through the result.
- When you're in the left view, press the spacebar to add a file to the list of files at the right
- Press left or right to go from the left view to the right view and back.
- Press control+left to put a file into the left player, and control+right in the right player.
- Use F1 to start playing the left player, and F9 to start the right player. ( If for some reason you don't see the timers showing the running & remaining time, then press scroll-lock and select a working driver for your hardware).
- The first time you start the first song, it might take slightly longer to claim the sounddriver from the OS. When you start the second song or any next sound, the reaction speed will be unnoticably small. The reason for claiming the hardware as late as possible, is that if DJCronnor is not playing, you can use your soundcard in an other piece of software without having to close down DJCronnor.
