Sound For Chameleon
« on: April 10, 2009, 09:06:59 AM »
Imagine having a sound on your bootloader it would be awesome.
Is it actually possible?
Because being able to play a custom sound would make it the best bootloader in the world.

Now that Chameleon does not yet have sound and hence is not the best boot loader in the world:

What is the best  boot loader in the world right now?  :P

Well, he didn't say that if it didn't have sound it's not the best bootloader in the world... only that the first bootloader to add it would become the best!  :P

However, I do think it would be pretty nifty (albeit completely useless and probably just something to slow down the system startup time) to have the normal Mac "binggg" noise.  ;D

Ohhh yea... The thing is... How can you have sound without a driver being loaded?

I know this is reaching, but how bout a way to make the system beep emulate the gong sound? Wouldn't be perfect, but doable, and I dont think a driver is needed for that...

Mac Startup Sound after selecting hard drive
« Reply #8 on: December 19, 2009, 10:34:39 AM »
It may not be possible but I was thinking that maybe since Chameleon is started before OSX, that maybe once you select a Mac OS X hard drive, it would play the Mac Startup sound if the user has it enabled. Maybe have somewhere in the extra folder for a place to put sound drivers. Not sure if it's even possible but it'd be pretty cool to have.

Chameleon is a bootloader not an OS...
Maybe with some laptop that already has a startup sound thru BIOS is possible to change it with the binggg
