    or maybe create it with the amber color around and inside the Nissan emblem. That would look hot.


    Thanks for creating these

    Observations on the Road

    This looks beautiful... However I just drove home with it and have a few observations.

    The clock works great.

    The Speedo did not work at all and there were no values in the "odometer"

    The Compass works but there are some issues.
    It is not pointing accuratly, seems to be off on the wriong side of north. When I turned west from due north the compas swung to the east (The numbers displayed in the "odometer" seem to be accurate).

    I have been using a .swf called compass.swf. This is pretty plain but it did work.
    The new compass looks much nicer and seems to move in much finer increments. On the old compas the pointer moves, on the new one the pointer stays straight ahead and the background moves. This seems much more like a real compass but it does have serious problems in a moving car. With the old one a quick glance at the pointer told you direction. With this one you need to concentrate on the letters on the background. This seems much less practical in a car.

    I'm not trying to be critical, I could never build this myself, but hopefully some constructive criticism can make it even better.

    Paul, the idea behind the compass is to make it easier to view your current heading so that you may turn N.S.E.W based on that information. I actually found it harder to make turns when looking at the needle style compass because i had to decipher the current heading in order to know which way to turn... It's all personal opinion here of course.

    I'm glad you noticed the finer increments. Basically it is using a smoothing function that I wrote up that makes it approach the reading instead of "jumping" to the current heading.

    CdRsKuLL - I've sent you an email. If requests can be held for the time being, we will see if we can create version that has a kind of .ini set-up file. That way there will be a generic .SWF file, where people can create they're own colour schemes.

    DiNASTY has done a lot of work on these to enhance there scrolling and smoothing capabilites. So a lot of thanks go to him !!

    Yes. Exactly as the standard ford oval.
    Sorry, don't know the RGB. If I find a pic will that do ?

    Wizz - I had already posted the Ford one on my site, see what you think.

    hpric - Are you saying you would like flash to just contain the Speedo and Compass, thereby dropping the logo and clock all together ?

    CdRsKULL - Tried sending you a PM but your in-box is full. Send me an email when you are free.

    Errors Corrected and Test version released

    A few people have raised a couple of issues with the clocks, which is great. Without your feedback they would have gone unnoticed.

    The main issues were:

    • Compass was 180 degrees out (ooppps !!)
    • Excessive CPU load.

    I have therefore hopefully fixed these issues and released a 'Road Runner Test Version' on my site.

    Although i appriciate that the colours used may not suit your skin, but this release is to ONLY test functionality. Therefore would those that have raised issue mind testing this version to see if they have been resolved. If so, i will then correct the ones already posted on the site. Any other feedback is welcomed.

    Many thanks,

    Steve

    xs10x - Your Clock has been updated as requested. Did you want to also remove the HRC3 logo from the front also, I wasn't sure, so left it for now.

    Yes please remove. Give others a chance to use this same clock,speedo and compass with their blue alpine skin.
