I've had a very busy couple of weeks, with a small vacation in between.
However, I managed to rebuild the graphics core. Performance is excellent right now.
I can add features to the core easily now. Scripting is already working, in fact, the
current development versions contains a 3-screen skinned, scripted and animating GUI.
It also supports realtime contrast/brightness adjustments and, for experimental purposes,
a grayscale feature (I can't think of a practical use for this).
About the support for radio's. I won't support a particular piece of hardware.
It will be hard for me to obtain a specific piece of hardware, and also important,
I'm not the most wealthy person on earth ;)
What I do support is an extensive API to interface different modules.
These modules, or plugins, will handle the support for a radio-tuner or some other piece of
hardware/software. But for this part of the project, it is yet too early to decide.
I will try to implement what I currently have ofcourse (although it's a
Pinnacle USB P.O.S. radio/tv/dvb tuner ;))
Right now I'm trying to focus as much as I can on this project again.
Although don't expect a beta for the next couple of weeks. But I'll be working hard on it.
This thread is far from being dead. It was sleeping.. I just had a busy time, thats all.
Also, keep an eye on the wiki, it tells a lot about the current state and features!
It gets updates from me regulary.
Hope you guys don't give up on this project. I promise it will be worth it.
I'm an 'old-skool' kind of person. I like fast running, optimized code.
And I'll try everything to make it fast as possible. It might have a little less to offer than a
Flash-based environment graphically-wise, but otherwise it will be feature rich enough to
To let you see what I'm talking about with the brightness I've created a small screenshot compilation.
This work has a very good look .
Very good work .
Is it possible to test it .
How can I create skin
Thanks for your answer:peace:

Hello everyone. This is Zangmann, the other half of CarMa, but now I have a new account name. I just wanted to update the people who were following this thread.
We took a little break at the end of last year but we are back 100% working on CarMa and will be posting a few more screenshots in the days to come. We now have a working library system with the ability to load and unload multiple libraries and directories, an extremely lightweight audio system with a scrubber time line, basic GPS implemented, and an external application that, if you so choose, will be a stand alone control panel that will control CarMa's settings.
We are really excited about this application and will hopefully begin alpha testing to the public in Q2 2009.
Looking forward to it!
