  • [Release] GammaControl v.2

    Download GammaControl v.2

    NEW:
    • Tray Icon
    • More stuff in menu
    • Automatic Gamma change based on time
    • only 2 settings that have to be configured manually (Open minimized, and minimize to tray)

    GammaControl will check every 5 seconds if your time is less than that of the last value, if it is not then it will go to the next value until it finds one.

    Important! Arrange the date/time/month/etc in reverse chronological order! Otherwise you will get an ugly screen refresh!

    INI Example:
    Code:
    [gamma]
    gamma0_month=12
    gamma0_day=24
    gamma0_hour=23
    gamma0_minute=25
    gamma0_value=255
    
    gamma1_month=10
    gamma1_day=25
    gamma1_hour=0
    gamma1_minute=15
    gamma1_value=255
    
    gamma2_month=10
    gamma2_day=24
    gamma2_hour=23
    gamma2_minute=25
    gamma2_value=-143
    The 0, 1, and 2 represent the date's number. Month, day, hour (24 hour), minute are self explanitory. They are in reverse chronological order.

    Long term project: make a program that will convert the website that gives the rise/set right into gamma settings. To make it easier, I'll make GammaControl read the day and night values.

    Let me try to help with that ATI thingy...
    I'm using a relatively new version of Catalyst, I can surely change them, but out of curiosity let's try to solve these out (for me, and for the rest of the ATI owners).

    I installed the following drivers:
    wxp-w2k-catalyst-7-991-040224m-013831c.exe

    I posted 2 screenshots of my driver.

      Told you to update the drivers. You're using Catalyst 4.3 according to this place. Version 4.4 has it fixed I think. And we're on version 4.7 or higher already.

      What I'm saying is that your drivers ARE the problem, and updating them should solve it IMO, and other's too. Even ATI says that gamma has problems under the 4.3 drivers Sorry for forcing you to do a big download

            1. I installed the new ATI drivers, now I *can* adjust the Gamma using your program!

            2. The slider seems to act weird! the original (medium setting) is fully on the right side, when sliding to the middle it gets brighter, then suddenly it getting darker and darker.
            Means: rightmost is the default settings, middle is the brightest, leftmost is the darkest.
            Anyone encounted this?

            3. All the remember/restore buttons does not seem to work. My gamma.ini looks this way now:
            [Settings]
            Night=50
            Day=-255
            But still, I get no affect when pressing the buttons.

            I think this is all weird ATI ****

              YES! I knew it was crappy ATI drivers!
              I know about the slider thing, its because I use two different algorythms, one for darker, and one for lighter. But the slider is JUST for config.
              The remember/restore buttons remember yoru original gamma before playing with the program. In other words, they are useless. I should disable the set buttons w/o the slider visible.

              BTW: To be fair, its not ATI's fault that the screen gets brighter/darker while adjusting the slider, that's just my coding.

                  BTW: Your sig says voice recognition (including the song list). How'd you get this?

                    .

                    Using SAPI 5.1's XML file feature, I created an XML file that's loaded into sapi (instead of using its own dictionary) the XML file acts as a "custom" dictionary with only artist and song name collectively. SAPI then can interpert this and improve accuracy on complicated songnames such as: "Megalomaniac"

                    I can send you an example XML file just PM me. You can enter it into SAPI's test tool and try a song name.

                      Why grab it from a website when you can calculate the values directly?

                        Oh, cool. I though you were using NaviVoice. In a while I'll add alot more user configurable things, so it will make this possible

                        Its easier just to get it from that website once a year. I'll make a prog that will parse the text, removing spaces and stuff, and then writing it *properly* into the INI file. Be prepared to see a HUGE INI file - 730 entrees (365 day and 365 night).

                          I spent yesturday night doing the sunrise/set converter. Its got 732 entrees, 1 for day, and 1 for night. Problem:it takes 2 minutes to save the file on my P4, and it takes 30 seconds to load in GammaControl . Solution: do every other day
