    I don't know where that misconception has come from, and I suppose the best way to combat it is to explicitly state the facts (although I thought I pretty much did in the doco) but you can use any URL/URI-controllable sound system/files in the DOE: Sound.

    I primarily use Syrinscape, but if you put in the URL that you currently have in the DOE: OLE to play your mp3 player into the DOE: SOUND it'll work properly - in fact, using the DOE: OLE for sounds is not what it was designed for - it was designed for non-sound URLs like webpages, pdf files, etc. The DOE: Sound and the DOE: OLE share a lot of the fundamental code, but you're better off using the right tool for the job - DOE: Sound for audio and DOE: OLE for everything else (including video).

    Make sense?

    You can use it to open any sound file. Similar process. Just type or copy and paste in the url from your computer when you setup the sound and when you click on the link (just like you do for syrinscape), it will play the sound directly from your PC. I use syrinscape sounds and sounds I've downloaded to my PC.

I can drag the first link in, which adds correctly, but attempting to drag in any more pops up a "Script Error: [string "DOEBase/Scripts/lsMiscFunctions.lua"]:117: findNode: Invalid parameter 1" error.

    I've attached screenshots, and am using DOE Base 2.3.1 and OLE 1.3. The OLE links I've created work correctly, so I don't think they're a problem, and they all link to MP3 files.

    Any ideas?

    That is interesting. I've never created minilists for the OLE links, but I just tested and get the same error. When I have time, I'm going to load a fresh campaign without extensions other than the DOE and see if it works.

    Could it be the \'s in the name?

    And I also thought you could only use the DOE: Sound for FantasyGrounds.

    No - I originally designed it for use with Syrinscape because that's my primary sound system when I'm GMing, but because its URL/URI-based any URL will work. Originally people were using the DOE: Sound to open up all sorts of things (ie video, pdfs, webpages) and I almost took that functionality out becuase I considered it a bug. However, Trenloe and others convinced me to not take it out, so I created the DOE: OLE to handle all the non-sound URLs and further refined the DOE: Sound to do more with sound-URLs - of which I still primarily use Syrinscape BUT which can use ANY sound system (provided that sound system can be controlled via a URL/URI).

    VLC Media Player can be used with the DOE: Sound, for example.

    But yes, the DOE: Sound is an FG Extensions, so it'll only work from inside FG - but it can control things (sound systems in this case) outside of FG.

    Make sense?

    GREAT! I also use Syrinscape primarily but every once in a while I want to use something outside the program. Movie soundtracks and other SFX.

    Do you know if it can be linked to AIMP?

    No idea, I haven't tried - but if AIMP can be controlled via URL strings then it should work fine. Check the AIMP Manual / website, and try it out using your web browser as a test (put the control URL into your web browser's address box and hit enter).

    I did start a fresh campaign and loaded up only the DOE extensions. I also verified that I have all the current downloads. Still have the same error as well. Like I said, I've never tried to create a mini-board with the DOE OLE extension, only for the DOE sound extension and those board work fine for me.
