  • Progress! And some screenshots.

    Again, it's been way too quiet for way too long. But I can assure all that progress has been made. And as a tester, I must say it's come a LONG way since even I last posted.

    There has been quite an overhaul of the original framework. Many, many features added to make life easier for those that want to code up some plugins/skins. There are too many of these enhancements to be listed here, but I'm sure there will be future discussion of these in other threads. Of note is the global data sources for plugins to make their data available to other plugins. The GPS data provider can make GPS receiver data available to Navigation, Weather (for location), Dashboard (speed, direction), etc. Data can be subscribed to to alert your plugin of new data. I may be simplifying things a bit (Boorte will correct me ) but you get the idea.

    Multi-zone operation is true multi-zone. Works wonders. Unfortunately for me my rear monitor died and I haven't replaced it, but still test it at the desk with dual monitor setup.

    There are also some screenshots following.

    Highlights:

    Major overhaul of the internal framework.
    True multi-zone.
    Utilizing new media player engine (mPlayer).
    Video playback can be synced across zones.
    Includes example plugins for developer reference.

    Some of the Plugins, working and/in progress. Working does NOT necessarily mean totally bug free, but we're trying

    Main Menu - working
    Music Player - in progress
    Video Player - in progress
    OMDSWeather (weather data provider) - working
    Weather2 (shows the current and forecast for selected locations) - working
    Tic-Tac-Toe (play the computer or another zone!) - mostly working
    OMGPS (gps data provider) - working
    OMLCD - Matrix Orbital character LCD support - working
    Radio (plays tuned content) - working
    OMVisteonRadio (tuned content provider for DMHD-1000 and compatibles) - working
    OMOSK (on-screen keyboard) - working
    OMGraphics (graphics handler) - working
    OMMenu (menu handler) - working
    Navigation (yes, a navigation plugin) - in progress
    OMDSFuelPrices (data provider requires internet and GPS device)
    OMFuel (selects and displays local fuel prices)

    OMSkinSamplePlugin (bare bones skin example) - working
    OMDataSourceSample (example for data sources) - working
    OMWinInfo (system and data info in separate windows form) - working
    ControlDemo (shows features of some of OMs UI controls) - working

    There are more (mostly back end type plugins like UI) that, again, I am sure there will be future discussion about. Some are back-burner things to come along later.

    So, to those folks that are still interested, we are closer than before. Sorry it's been taking so long, but it's not a career after all. And as I eluded to a while ago, it's worth the wait.

          Just dropping in for a screenshot of OMTicTacToe and then the same image but with notifications pulled down showing GPS data. Also note that temp in the top bar that reflects current location (via gps or network).

            3D Graphics (via Control Demo plugin) with background!

            3D Graphics (via Control Demo plugin) with background (wallpaper in Default skin)! Sweet!

            Notice the transparency of the cube. Full rotation ability. All can be done in your OM plugins.

                          Still kicking, itching to get back in the game. I think life has finally settled down...for now...
