Thanks gregoryx. I think I undertand your description.

The only thing I'm confused about is how to pass my {{mcArtist}} variable to an MLServeCmd.MLWriteFile command. Without asking you to write up a long description, is that a fairly straightforward thing to do?

I just tested this: MLServeCmd.MLWriteFile|d:\test.txt~WRITE~testing {{mctrack}} and it works. It builds a file with the content "testing Big Fat Funky Booty" in it (weird song title).

Okay, so here's an attempt at building a weblobby.ini:

MLServeCmd.MLWriteFile|d:\weblobby.ini~WRITE~&WebLobbyBrowserWindowX=30&WebLobbyBrowserWindowY=70&WebLobbyBrowserWindowHeight=570&WebLobbyBrowserWindowWidth=860&WebLobbyStartupURL=http://www.keyesfamily.org/{{mctrack}}{{mcartist}}&

Yup. Works. That format ought to give you the file you need. Just use it to edit create a new weblobby.ini whenever you send the command (just before moving to that scene) and you should be in good shape.

gregoryx,

Thanks so much for posting that command. I'll spend the next couple of days experimenting and learning.

Thanks again, I really appreciate you taking the time to whip this together.

Regards.
