  • RELEASE - FreeDrive 0.33 beta (D3 Frontend)

    [OLD POST]
    This version is now out of date







    Bit of a major improvement this one, it takes care of a big bug which was happening on machines which were running non english OS.

    Change log;
    - Fixed Error on non-english systems (App now runs :-) )
    - Changed skins over to pixels rather than percentage
    - Rewrote all the skins to match
    - Added boarder that can resize / minimise etc..
    - Fixed a bug in the menus
    - Expanded installer to include the SDK

    Bugs found so far
    - Speedo freezes sometimes
    - takes two attempts so embed in to media car
    - overflow error on London streets
    - Mapping to wrong city on spain maps


    Grab it from the FreeDrive website HERE

    Version 0.4 Current progress
    - Impoved code for GPS Speed, sats, heading
    - Fixed Overflow error on Streets
    - Fixed wrong city on spain maps
    - Changed when and where FreeDrive sizes, should help embedding
    - Converted heading degrees into text ie. 'NORTH EAST'
    - Added Menu time out (set at 7 seconds)
    - Keyboard now Skinable
    - Address page now Skinable
    - Improved City / Street Lists
    - Added Menu button down action

    Still to do for Version 0.4
    - Centrafuse Compatablity frontend + skin
    - Sirf Compatabilty (might make it this version)

    Should be the last release for a week or so.. 0.4 next I hope.. long as I've fixed all the bugs in this release..

    thanks

          I must admit, I prefer percentages too (makes it easier to do a skin for anyone at any resolution)

            I just noticed a quick bug.. its now fixed, and i'm uploading again, give it 5 mins and download it again.. btw.. dont click street ;-p

            why the changeover in the skin ?
            it seems non english systems cant tell the difference between a , and a .

            so when I was using percentage.. a line was like
            time=81.6,64.5,18,5,2,Arial,14,16777215,14980463

            it was causing an error.. yours are different in your skin, each on a seperate line so you wouldnt get this error of trying to split on a comma thing .. live and learn

            have fun

              Then just switch it to work like mine, it's more readable anyway.

                The pixels that you enter will be fine.. I've made it so it auto sizes.. like so

                First loads a picture 'day.jpg' from the skin. It reads the proper size
                then it does a resize to match the size in setting.ini

                Then I do a quick calc..
                Label.left = background.width * (pixelsize / truebackground.width)

                and jobs a good'un.. Auto-resizing skin easy lol

                    Yeah I thought about it, but my skin.ini file would of been MASSIVE.. I know yours will be, I'm going to be adding a keyboard soon with 50 keys.. so it will be a different between 50 lines or 400 lines. As it reads this file everytime you cancel or do something on the frontend, I really needed it to be fast.. I've no idea if it will make any difference or not.. lol

                      Another suggestion, instead of comma delimited, use a pipe |

                          lol. I was trying to think of something else to stick in between, O well only took me a couple of hours to do it. I might just add a extra line to the skin..

                          # scale size 0 - pixels 1 - percent
                          SkinScale = 1

                          Keep everyone happy ;-)

                              Hi,

                              yes, its working fine now - THANKS !!! - but my favorite skin still is a little misaligned. I draw two white lines in this screenshot to show the alignment.
