• Hello,

    Here is my new plugin (Windows only): GetSceneNumberByName
    It is basically the same thing than the JumpByName actor found [here](http://troikatronix.com/troikatronixforum/discussion/768/jumpbyname-a-plugin-i-made-that-i-thought-might-help-others) (original plugin, Mac) and [here](http://troikatronix.com/troikatronixforum/discussion/1159/jumpbyname-plugin-for-windows-source-code) (Windows), without the jump. Give it a text and it will give you the absolute and relative index of the first scene whose name matches this text.
    It can be plugged into Jump/Jump++, and Activate/Deactivate Scene actors.
    • (quickly) tested and confirmed working on Isadora 1.3.1f06
    • scene names must not be larger than 1000 characters
    To install, just copy the .dll file into ‘IsadoraInstallationFolder\Isadora Plugins’, e.g. C:\Program Files\Isadora\Isadora Plugins. Don’t forget to restart Isadora.
    I also added the source code in the zip file in case somebody wants to have a look at it or port it to Mac.
    Don't hesitate to ask if you need help with this.

    How would one go about porting this lovely actor to Mac?

  • I would like to have this for Mac to! Is it complicated to port it?

  • Well... All I can tell is it shouldn't be that hard (never really developed on a Mac). I suppose the main issue one would bump into is having to convert numeral types and maybe string functions, so not a big deal.

    But you might want to wait for the new SDK which should be released after Isadora 2.5, as I don't know if the old plugins will still be compatible with it.

    This plugin should be fine.. the new SDK will change mostly in regards to Video (gpu vs cpu).
    If you can get the available sdk running, and compiling, you should be able to port this.
