  • image on key press?

    hi, i have a new mini, and im gonna get a device to connect to the ibus via serial cable, i just wonderd if i could take info like left door open, assign it to a keypress with girder, then display an image on the screen, for a few seconds, or until you clicked it.

    not a full screen image, perhaps filling 80% of the screen, could have warnings for door open, lights on etc etc.

    would this be possible? is it already?

    thanks in advance, tom.

      Girder does have an OSD option which you could possibly use, even if it just diplays "DOOR" or something. Maybe look for girder plugins to use images instead of text.

        The iBus on my bimmer did not display any door opening things. I did let me know that the dome light would go on and off but not specifically anything about the door. As far as OBD-II, there is nothing like that in there.

          Hrmmm, I never thought of something like this.But now I have, Im sure it is possible to do it with switches etc via the serial/game port. Someone on these forums made suck a program for a different purpose, 2 pins shorted on the game port meant that the software would do something. SO, all cars have door pins that control the interior light, why not set it up on those pins, that when the circuit is close, and it shorts the 2 pins relevant to that door, a message displays on screen telling you the issue. I know thats possible

            what do we think? Anyone willing to undertake this task?

            I may repost this idea in another post of its own.

              Its a shutdown controller. Shorting the pins makes the computer do stuff. So surely it can be done to make it display a message on-screen?

                Yep, you can make it display an image if the developer is so inclined

                    would you be so inclined my dear friend ol33l?

                    Just as a tester -
                    pin x and x shorted = passenger door open display on screen
                    pin x and x shorted = driver door open display on screen

                    *IDEA*
                    Even better! 12v runs through the courtesy light switch.... so, when a 12v current is run through 1 (ONE) pin - make it do as above?

                    Even if it wasnt a pic (say - an open car door), maybe a box across the screen with big bold font in it.

                      something like this would be perfect - just centralised on the screen.

                      You could have one for each door and one for the boot! Its all endless!

                        Wish I had the time Currently sorting out the bugs in NaviVoice, some of which I can't even replicate, and then I'll have to rewrite the time based code in GammaControl and transfer it to NaviVoice (should reduce 30sec INI reads to 1 sec.... 780 lines instead of 5,024).
