Yoo what up Newgrounds. As I am writing this, I’m listening to @TomFulp’s June 2019 Mix. Not on Newgrounds however, through Discord. In case you missed it, I wrote up a Discord bot, FulpTron, that has a bunch of functionality that sorta integrates with Newgrounds.
The latest feature I’ve added is the ability to play songs right from Newgrounds.
(shoutout to @kawaisprite go listen to their stuff)
This works pretty much exactly as expected. Work’s with song playlists too. Wanna listen to Tom’s mixes with your pals at the end of each month? EASY. Wanna start an NG music club with your boys? EASY.
This has been on the backburner for a long time, but I finally got around to it after the @ACoupleOfCrickets boys had a few technical difficulties with playing NG songs in their Discord where they record the podcast live (go check them out btw) so I finally got a bit more motivation to finally get around to fixing it up.
It's compliant with the 'Allow External API use' setting, so that if artists do not want their music to be listened to by the bot, they can check the box and FulpTron won't be able to access it. Works similarly with unscouted submissions, where those cannot be played whatsoever. And shoutout to @PsychoGoldfish for all the useful info.
This comes with a full queue system and everything. Song skipping, volume control, etc. What I still plan on adding is to make the ‘fulpNowPlaying’ command give out better info. Right now it merely gives the song title, but I’d like to be able to drop a nice embed with cover art, link to the artist, and a link to the actual song if you wanna fav/score it. Also a current issue is that it plays the songs out of order. I’ll chip away at it through the next few days.
But if you want to add FulpTron to your OWN server you can use this link: https://discordapp.com/oauth2/authorize?client_id=381604281968623617&scope=bot&permissions=8
And if you wanna join some Newgrounds discord with a bunch of cool ass people, why don’t you hop in here. Maybe we'll pop on some cool ass NG music in voice chat or something for everyone to listen to: https://discord.gg/HzvnXfZ
