  • RELEASE - FreeICE v2 Alpha 4

    Well I've had a few very late nights and hopefully got most of the bug's. This is quite a big update concerning the skin.

    I hope you like it.. so what's new ?

    Alpha 4 [Changelog]
    - Added GPS Embedding (see settings.ini to configure for now)
    - Added Menu widget control (Edit / Remove / Add)
    - Added ability to change the logo from the edit screen
    - Added ability to change the wallpaper from the edit screen
    - Added calculator
    - Fixed Wrong radio freq on preset 12
    - Changed Silabs DLL

    Click HERE to grab it, please uninstall any previous versions first.

    I'm very happy how the edit screen has turned out :-) To enable it just hold down on a empty space. To select the logos / wallpaper / icons etc just click on them.

    slightly changed since this picture but you will get the idea :-)



    Let me know what you think and if you find any bugs.. I'm very tired now and brains only working 20%.. lol



    so what's next...

    Alpha 5 will contain

    More widgets
    CarTFT USB Radio compatibility
    Settings screen
    If it makes is in time DAB Radio :-)

    as always more to come...

    CdR

    CdR, works great! One question though. How do I fix/move the video player window for 1280x800 resolution? Is it possible, or is this skin set for 800x600 only? Thanx.

          lol.. you nearly sussed it but you edited the wrong .ini file. The skin.ini shouldn't really be altered as that's the size the skin was designed in. The one your after is in the settings.ini of the main program....try this line

          ### position of player if not fullscreen top,left,width,height
          position=0,0,1280,800

          It should auto size everything correctly then :-) Let me know

            Same problem with the radio. Same fix. I'm still looking into the other thread.
            Tried swapping the firmware quickly last night but that just broke more stuff.

                If I listen with the adstech instant radio app, then quit that and start FI with the working dll, I get audio in FI.
                If I mute the radio in the adstech app before I quit it, then I get no radio audio in FI.

                  So.. if you leave it unmuted when you close adstech app it then works fine in FI? allows you to start up / mute / close / restart ?

                  thnaks for debugging this, much appriciated.. and I'm hoping DC will be fixed soon, I cant post keep getting mysql error.

                    Yep the webbrowser will be coming... wont take much work to be honest, I'm hoping to include a keyboard with the next update which will be needed for setting weather location etc as well as for webbrowsing.

                    shame I only have 1 pair of hands and only a few hours a day to work on it.. not bad for 6 weeks mind :-)

                      I am still using the 'other' dll, not 'yours'. I tried playing with firmware but need to be more systematic, it was late when I started!
                      I now have quite a collection of dll's to trawl through!

                        Ran it up today, no issues, d9 embeds awesome, the widgets included are cool. Top work

                        Eventually when its in final release being able to add and share widgets will top it off.

                        Cheers

                          I would just concentrate on two dll's really. The last one on the DC googlecode source and maybe the one included with Centrafuse which I now have bundled with FI on release 4. ..

                          btw.. off topic but can you post on DC.. just wondering if it's just me.

                          thanks

                              CdR, that did it,....all fixed now. I did make the change in the settings.ini to begin with, but it didn't take... because I also changed the res in the skin.ini to 1280x800.

                              Thanks mate.
