High performance RR like frontend - Alpha testversion
Today i provide you my quick hack of a new frontend. It is based partialy on the rr concept and it only exists, cause changing rr for my needs would take the same time, i think. There is another frontend "velocity", which i wanted 2 use, but unfortunately there is no source available.
This frontend is 6 times faster then rr and probably one of the fastest possible frontend in a "high" programming language (C#). This means: cpu load with rr: 60% -> now 10%. Why fastest possible? In the whole program there is no loop and no timer - everything is event based, also in the flash skin. So the framerate of the skin does not affect performance, as it does with rr.
In this version you can test the music playback - main skin and audio browser are included.
If you have a small hardware (like me) or want 2 use heavier flash skins or you want a cooler cpu, then try it out.
How 2 run it?
Flash Player 9.x
Please note: In the file audiobrowser.skin you must change the line
and replace t:\sound with the path 2 your music files...
I've attached an update - this includes a new build with internal gps support and external application support (tested with destinator)...
Just extract the files from CarmenAlpha02.rar over the old ones from the first release.
Please check .skin files 4 com port, path and so on.
minor update - some bugfixes, main menu changed 2 slow it down *g*
major update - audio skin, winamp media library skin, bugfixes, transparent skin - etc
please note to configure now also "carmen.ini"
Possible crash @ start and gps reading fixed - log file added.
major update - video browser (based on media player 9), big cover art (in audio skin press "Cover"),
OSK integration (you need autoit installed 2 use the osk...)
Beta version released
