    Post using both lorty's and winlcd plugins at same time

    Hey guys check this out...i have both a 6.8 NTSC and a 40X4...
    I am running both lorty's and winLCD plugins at same time on 1 40X4 LCD and AVS and X-plugin on the NTSC... pretty cool huh?

    how? use a visualizer mix plugin ( it's called ampdeck)...
    from Lorty's I only use the winbond temperature to display my system temperature...and the rest is from winLCD which I prefer over lorty's just for visuals.

    I zipped up my ini and dll files in case anyone wanna try.

    here is screenshot of the 40X4 displaying Artist+Title (scrolling if too long), track time elapsed and total, bitrate, case temperature, time and date. Just pick the best features of each plugin and make sure they don't overlap =)

    anyway you guys might think im crazy but it's pretty cool what you can do when you can run multiple VIS.
    beware... you are gonna need a fast machine for running a bunch of vis plugins at once...



    I just redid my sig, i hope it's not too big hehe..what do you guys think?

    How did you get a 10C CPU temp in your car? Are you blowing AC on it?

    BTW, your LCD does look sweet! I havent even implemented a display yet...

    It's not 10C per se....it's the difference of the CPU temp minus the case temp... depending on the room temp.

    for example if it's 40C outside, case temp is like 42, and CPU is 52... I am not blowing AC air on it "yet" but I might do that once I figure out a way to get ac air to the trunk via some kind of tube....

    lorty's plugin only supports winbond chip. Use MBM5 and it should tell you what kinda sensor you have.
