    [Release] SKINbedder V3 - Preview #2

    Edit: If you are looking for an updated Google Earth skin to run with Sb V3 - Preview 2, here is the thread: RELEASE: GE-Nexus (for GooPs / Google Earth in CF Nexus) (You must still download the .exe from this thread)



    Hi all. I just put this release together so that people would have a working solution for GooPs. The main new feature is that the Send() command has been replaced by the Type() command. Send() wasn't working for GE, but I wanted to keep it for backwards-compatibility. The new Type() command works much better using SendInput API, it supports "HOLD-", and it supports all VK_ keys (without the leading "VK_"). The old Send() command could not send "." or "Period" as well as many other keys that are now supported by the Type() command. I also made the Focus() command more reliable.

    Also, there is no "fade-up", but semi-transparency doesn't work very well (it will show through Sb to the desktop). I am still working on getting true Layered windows working and once I do I will release V3 Final (finally ). Any skins without alpha-blended PNGs should look perfect.

    The only included SKIN is the CF-style Google-Earth skin re-worked for GooPs.

    Here are the directions:
    Code:
    Installation Instructions:
    1) UnRAR to c:\program files\SKINbedder
    2) Open SKINbedder\GooPs\GooPs.ini
    3) Change the number in "GOOGLE~4" to whatever it needs to be.
     
    Usage:
    The 3rd button from the left toggles all GooPs tracking on/off.
    The FF/REW buttons are actually rotate left/right.
    When you use tilt/zoom/rotate, that part of GooPs tracking is automatically disabled.
    To re-enable, toggle GooPs tracking off and then back on again using the 3rd button.
     
    Note:  You may have to click the Google Earth map once before the buttons work.
    I am also still working on mercury7's Google-Earth SKIN which will eventually include an OSK for address entry and be a lot closer to a full-featured NAV system using Google-Earth.

    [Get SbV3-P2!]

    FYI: I have no intention of doing anything else with the iGuidance SKIN until after I have V3 Final out and am happy with the Google-Earth SKIN. If anyone else wants to take it over that would be cool, otherwise, just use iGMod .

    the autozoom.cfg file in the \GooPs subfolder needs to be edited to point to the correct path of the PNGs.

    So does the new version of SB fix the problem of having to touch the program first to get the buttons to work?

    IE. IG, have to touch IG then the buttons will work?

    ? I never had to touch iG to get the buttons to work. ???

    You do have to touch GE to get the buttons to work because Focus(GEMap) only focuses on the GE window, not the map-pane of the GE window. I don't know how to set focus of a section within a window.

    iG doesn't have that problem since the window is not broken into separate "panes". If I run SKINbedder iG, then press zoom-out as soon as it loads without touching anything else, iG zooms out. It always has.

    Really? You use RR right? Which skin do you use? All the ones I have tried when using SB I have to touch IG in order for the skin buttons to work.

    RPM, RR uses SendKeys to send out keystrokes to embedded apps. I think the problem is SB doesn't pass the keys it receives to the underlying application. I could be wrong so please correct me on that.

    I think a nice feature would be the ability to define and map keystrokes to embedded functionalities inside SB. For example, for the Goops skin, we can map Alt-Z to "zoom in" and Alt-X to "zoom out." Then from RR, all we do is send out Alt-Z and Alt-X to Skinbedder.
