Can you enable the FN key for Keyboard shortcuts - e.g. (FN + Arrow up) Brightness+ or( FN + Arrow Down) Brightness-
or FN + F5 etc

This would allow the replacement of my laptops default osd software.

Thank you. Great program.
Especially I like the memory usage :)
But it doesn't work when I playing BadCompany in full screen mode. I don't know, maybe with other games also doesn't work, I can't try.
You can fix this?

And yet, about the "CPU Load and RAM Load Notifications". Just a wish, if it possible, of course.
It would be terrific if this function does not take up much space. Ideally, if it could be placed in the tray. And, I hope, this function does not strongly affect the memory usage :)

ps
Sorry for my English.

:love: :dance: 10x thanksss a tonnnnn, glad that you liked it... :love: :dance:

about localization this is alpha release, so multi-language support will be availabe in Final Release, and the links to Homepage working fine every pc i tested, may be its because of Russian version of windows ?!?!?! i will take a look at it.

about Context menu: it is because of the Windows Vista/7 , i will fix this in final release, or alt. is you Drag it and Drop it near Volume Icon ;)

Hi. MacG is great prog. Just uninstaled 3RVX 2.5 by Mat Malensek, because MacG is much faster.

What do you think about Russian localization?

This is great. I'd use that if I could use the Shift+WheelUP, Shift+WheelDOWN shortcuts for vol up/down.

And tried it, looks very good. but to be honest i prefere the notifications that came with my drivers DVD for my lappy.
But still, you did an amazing job, and it's skinnable :o
Non the less, it's great if you want cool notifications :D

This is THE BEST emulator for all of these functions ever made for Windows! At least that I have tested. It is very stable even now and I have set it to run automatically at start up. I love how it's customizable and skinnable. My only suggestion is to add the sound that Macs make when you increase and decrease the volume. Then it would be flawless! Excellent! I'm going to link my Xp to Leopard pack to this page.

10x Thanks...glad that you liked it and :+fav: and Added to your XP3 to Leopard Pack, really appreciate that..! :D :thumbsup:

and the Mac Sounds you suggested is already been added in this version, you just have to Tick/Check the "Play Skin Sounds" in the Appearance Tab in MacGadger Settings and select the "Default" Skin. because "Default Skin" contains orignal Mac Volume Change Sounds.

andd yeaaa XP to Leopard Transformation Pack is just off the hook..!:wow:
