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 The main new feature is that the Send() command has been replaced by the Type() command.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:
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.
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.
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.
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 .
