    iGmod Beta 2 release

    This looks like a good milestone release... so I present you with

    IGMOD BETA 2

    WHATS NEW?
    Some of the features I like the most:
    -Dynamic menus on main window (so you can have callout menus)
    -More streamlined in window GPS info integration
    -Next turn visible in big letters at the top when taking a turn
    -Completley redesigned behind the scenes integration with igmod. Faster, more accurate, and less flickering/redraws/orphaned buttons
    -Custom skin support (minor skinning faq included with skin provided, extended faq comming soon)
    -Road Runner and FrodoPlayer support
    -Saves position of program when running in standalone mode
    -A whole bunch of other crud I can't remember right now

    What is iGmod?
    iGmod is a program which attempts to replace the menus in iGuidance with new, more eye appealing menus and larger buttons for use on a touchscreen display. It also redesigns the interface of the main window for easy integration and use with frontends.

    So in essence it retains all of the greatness of the actuall iGuidance application while replacing the weaker interface designed for a PDA with a more elaborite interface for a PC.

    It will also feature easy instalation of a variety of iGuidance mods not directly associated with the user interface in future releases, such as map font size editing and modifying the sound files to turn down the music playing while guidance is reading directions.

    Of course, you need iGuidance to run it. Ive tried it on iG 2.1 and 2.1.1, but I hear 2.0 also works.

    Known minor issues in this beta release:

    - Coordinates window is not skinned (who enteres destinations by coordinates anyways?)
    - Speed Alert window not skinned, nor is display options or route options
    - Lots of images are just blue/yellow/red round buttons, this happened when I lost art creativity to get the product complete
    - No notification if you failed doing something you shouldnt be able to do, like no route to destination or detour when no destination set

    Stability
    Not very stable. Some people have some issues im looking into. It also doesnt work with europe. Keep in mind igmod tries to make iguidance do something it was never designed to do, so there will be unforseen issues (usually involving the interface becoming unresponsive for as long as a minute)

    If the next turn display is visible, then it screws up when switching menus ig CF.

    Note that if you run the included patcher you will have to reenter the correct information for what skin to load into your runner.ini.

    Download beta 2.0:

    2.0 Blows, and it crashes. So I removed the link. In the mean time, you can use the latest "preview release" before the release of iGmod Beta 3:

    iGmod Beta 2 release

    If you REALLY want 2.0 for some strange reason, PM me.

    Note that this is the last release I am making for this codebase; I am recoding the whole program in a much more efficent and correct format (and making it open source) which I will make avaliable shortly (when its ready). The new igmod reloaded will handle any skins the older beta 2 could.

    Screenshots (featuring blueice centrafuse theme, more skins comming soon)


    Basic view in Centrafuse 1.4


    Menu in RoadRunner using Alpine skin


    Frodoplayer integration, also showing embedded GPS info and zoomed speed/distance to next turn



    More screenshots of OSK, popoutmenu, previewing destination, and other things

    Old threads about this:

    Bug Reports:

    I know there will be bugs, its not the most 100% stable thing in the world yet. Please tell me what the issue is, if you can consistantly recreate it, and what version of IG you have. Feel free to send me instant messages, my AOL screen name is comegetyourham .

    ...Anyone want to make new buttons for the POI list or anywhere else in the menus for me? I can do the up/down effect if you get me a 110x110 image to add the up/down border onto. All the current art came from various GPL clipart webpages.

    Comming Soon:

    -CompactBlack Skin

    http://img261.exs.cx/img261/4249/screen132xr.jpg
    -FireDrive Skin (rounded red buttons)
    -Goodie Bag (Code to add things such as "View this location on google maps")
    -Rewritted skinning FAQ

    Primary future goal: Stability

    Please tell me what you think, and if you like it DONATE Its becoming harder and harder to find time to work on stuff like this, and trust me I have alot of programming I want to do.
    http://www.igmod.iamjeremy.com/iGmod...donations.html

    Finally, its supposed to work with minimal tweaking. If it doesnt, post a message and we will get it fixed I havent tested this in my car yet, but I will soon.

    Edit: This is now my own personal todo list for iGmod. As suggestions are posted that are not yet implemented, I am adding them here. PM me if you mentioned something and you want code to fix the problem expidited. (iGmod Reloaded)

    Poster/Problem:
    - Mushai: iGmod mutes iGuidance on startup (Complete, I think? [fix])
    - PUR: RR looses focus of active window when pressing an RR skin button which communicates to iGmod sometimes (complete)
    - John, others: Lag on pressing OSK buttons
    - PUR: CFX skin flickers on VirtualEmbed
    - PUR: Size of offscreen icons = size*screenwidthmult, screenheightmult (compelete)
    - PUR: POI code needs redisign
    - PUR: Needs new OSK for CFX
    - PUR: Config tool needs entry for CFX 800x600 (complete)
    - PUR: Skin editor incomplete
    - PUR: Skin editor should delete temporary skin image folders when saving an INI file
    Current projects: iGmod reloaded (Latest release) (put on hiatus indefinatly)

    I can get my hands on it in a few days, then when I do ill edit the skin for europe. Care to post a log file of you driving for a couple minutes so I can test it for routing features too?

    That is what I got too. But I found out if you extract the files first you will not get the error message.
