Headless and Live Mode Command Line Switches

Hey All,

Next build (3643) of Cantabile will have:

/headless command line switch

Suppresses a number of prompts and dialogs that might hinder running on a headless machine, including:

  1. The crash recovery dialog.
  2. The performance warnings on startup.
  3. Any prompts to save song or set list files are suppressed and default to “No”.
  4. If you’ve configure the start up option to prompt for a song to reload, it won’t prompt and just load it.

Most other prompts and dialogs still appear because they only happen in response to interacting with something anyway.

/livemode command line switch

Forces live mode on

Both will be in the next build.
