    Cool New Skin Editing Program!

    Ok, here is a skin designing program: http://www.fusioncontrolcentre.com/F...g/software.php

    In the 2nd table.

    Right now in beta, so if you have problems, please report them.

    Also some of the features in there are incompatable with the current Main program, but I am working on it. I added some stuff (again) so I am rewriting parts.

    The new main program should be available soon.

    Until then, go ahead and try with this.

    We still have the $25 available for those who want it. You just have to enter.

    Wow that program is confusing. Maybe it's just because I've never designed a skin before, but I just can't seem to figure how to do anything except the really basic things like turning an output on or off. But how would I go about setting a certain button to stay on for a certain amount of time? How would I do something based on one of the analog inputs? Please write up some sort of manual for this. I know it's on your back burner right now, but I really want to get one of these and actually be able to use it.


    Thanks

    Make an "animation" with 1 frame that is set to on. Then in the repeat enter a number that cooresponds with physical time. For instance, if your output refresh rate is 100mS, and you want an output on for 10s, then 10000/100 is 100 so set repeats to 100. If it is 30mS refresh rate and you want it on for 1s, then 1000/30~= 33 so set repeat to 33.

    When you add an anlogue input, that entire area on the right is for what happens at certain voltages. You can send a key sequence or turn on/off an output currently.

    I am trying to get one done. I thought the program was relatively self expanatory but I do live in my own little world sometimes.

    The program is always easier for the coder to understand. Back when I used to fool around w/ c & c++ I was always able to use my own software even if no one else understood it. =) Thanks for the help

    Error

    Sorry my first post describes an error.
    Whenever I do anything with a skin (delete an analog input, delete an output), I get an "unhandled exception" error. Is it my configuration? I'm pretty sure it's the latest version (just downloaded it), but maybe a Help About menu item for the next version would be a good idea.

    Here's the details of the error:
    Code:
    See the end of this message for details on invoking 
    just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

    Could you explain a little more about what gets you that error? It looks like when you move your mouse over one of the images, but is this when you have clicked a delete button, or what?

    If I click Outputs, Delete Output, then click on one of the icons. This is on the default skin.

    Ok, you wanna be my guinea pig?

    I think I figured it out. Replace the "Fusion Control Centre.exe" that you currently have with this one: http://www.fusioncontrolcentre.com/T...ryNick/FCC.exe

    You really don't want me as your guinea pig. Actually, you don't want me as your tester. I manage a team of software engineers and when they hand me their apps for testing, I can usually break it within 3 minutes.

    I think that version fixed it. I just found another issue:
    1. When saving a skin, sometimes it changes the size of the font back to the default. I don't know what I did to make that happen. It's relatively minor, as I went into the skin file and did a search/replace to fix it.
    2. It looks like I am having a problem saving a skin and overwriting the same file. I get one of those exception errors.
