    CPU temperature display in FrodoPlayer?

    Hey everyone.

    Is there any way to integrate CPU temprature/fan speed into FrodoPlayer?

    Well, maybe an external program which will change Frodo's skin to indicate precentage or high-temprature, or something similar?

    If not, is there any external application which can display it well on FrodoPlayer? (I mean: always on top, with alpha-transparency, and nice interface)

    MBM has a nice dashboard display that can be made semi-transparent and always on top. I haven't tried it with FP yet. It uses shared memory and there is code available for accessing the temp readings from other programs, so it should be easy for a programmer to make this display in FP.

    RR has this feature, so it is definitely possible.



    Personally I think the new version of FP will have this implimented.

    you can run other apps on top of FP, my V1 virtual display pops up over FP fine. you could make a space for it in the skin, and skin the app to match. It would be nice to embed it directly in the app though.

    Hard work often pays off over time, laziness always pays off right now.
