    I want to listen to my iTunes music in the background of a couple games I play (mostly Sims 2 and RCT3) and be able to control iTunes (at least back/forward/play/pause). I have Synergy, and all games seem to disable the hotkeys I have set up, and I can't Apple+Tab over to iTunes. Any ideas? Thanks

    I have the same problem but not with world of warcraft, what i do is i carefully make a list of songs i want to listen to then just hope for the best. I could not find what your looking for :\.

    Haha, do what I've started to do out of frustration--

    burn it to a CD and play it on my stereo. :p Hey, at least this way I can control both the game's and the music's volume separately and I can skip tracks all without detracting from playing my game. :D

    You have 2 computers... play the game on one and run iTunes on the other. Or if you have to play the music through the speakers hooked up to the game playing mac, you can try the ssh thing.

    you do know you can set up RCT3 to read your iTunes? though, I think you need to make a playlist.
