    Downloaded the trial

    I have the speech API installed, and I get the same error listed by the user above, also there seems to be a hardcoded path in it as wel, since when I switched to the night skin it indicates can't find. I also got another automation error trying to open settings.

    I know why the automation error is coming up.

    http://www.microsoft.com/msagent/downloads/user.asp

    Go there and get the LH TTS engine. You need some form of TTS engine.

    That should solve everything. As for the hardcoded path, I'll upload files in a minute to fix that. Give me a few seconds to switch computers. I just saw the hardcoded path just a second ago too.

    If it's stuck, force it. If it breaks it needed replacing anyway

    Release 2.2 can now be downloaded.

    Status Button Icons are bigger now. I even measured them They are now 1CM x 1CM on the LCD screen.

    As of 2.2, AIS will be available in 2 formats. 800x600 and 800x480

    There are still some glitches to work though

    It is released without the ini file writer so you have to edit the ini file to make your own applications run

    It's pretty easy to figure out how to do the ini

    As of this release the application container is limited to 590x415 to accomode the modules so that modules can be universal for both versions.

    Code optimized a litte more.

    VR features are still not there yet I am going to work on INI writer first.

    Hardcoded ini files are fixed on the binary releases. If you want to assign any app you have to edit the ini file to do it.

    You will need to update following lines in the AIS.ini file:
    PrgmName3 = This is the title of the app. Look at the title bar. Eg. if you want to run notepad.exe, you will need to enter : Untitled - Notepad

    PrgmWait3 = -1 This is the wait time before it plant the program into AIS. Some stuff like GPS app will need to fully run first. -1 means it's not assigned.

    PrgmLoc3 = Location of program. Absolute path and exe
    PrgmTTS3 = What the computer will say when you load the program


    You will also need to assign the icon 103x103pixel image and those settings are in the skin.ini files.

    I will write a module for this tonight so that you can do it from a GUI. I was busy doing the Widescreen version today and redoing both so that I can make module sizes the same for both apps. I even drew things out and measured icon sizes on paper.

    R2.3 Update:

    Started on 2.3. Another rewrite from scratch. This time round, the same release will have both full screen and wide screen settings you have to choose. A couple of icons on the status bar has been removed. I think it was cluttering it to much and they're not really needed.

    The program area of 590x415 seems a little small so I got to to 640x410

    There are some previews on the pictures section of the page.

    This time, when it start up, it will go to a clock. When you press on the clock, then the program will start. The sony face feature someone requested

    A little update

    Ok. I got the configs done. I also worked on the imageviewer. It's not done yet but it's working. I need to beautify it. I also used the booru Webcam for now but I'll make my own sometime tomorrow. Things are coming together. I will also start working on music player and video player modules. I'll do a module package release most likely on friday.

    What do you think?

    Missing something??

    Quote Originally Posted by Seraph

    Same place ^^^^^ Look above ^^^^^ to download the latest update on the beta. I think I can officially call it a Beta now. Just missing a couple of items.

    With that in mind, I got some pictures:

    The main interface is inspired by the BMW interface running on Linux. More of a partial clone if you will. If you don't like it, you can redo the graphic files and using the config, reface it to what you want.


    Now we have the config screen. I will try to make it a little nicer but for now, it's working. Also config is there so that you can show/hide the icons in the status bar on the bottom as well as change the pointers to the apps and change the centre graphic/video in the main menu.


    I have not created any modules for this yet but currently you can see WMP running on the core. Its supposed to look like WMP is apart of the AIS interface.


    And the same concept with Street Atlas 2k3. It looks pretty good IMO. I have to fix the timing code for this though but you get the idea on how modules are supposed to load.


    I will create a new site for AIS/AiPC tomorrow and I have registered this as Open Source Copyleft application. The source will be posted on the site as well for those of you that wants to add to this. But make sure you read the copyleft licence though.

    Good Night

    I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I can't get the config screen to display. I tried to download version 2.1 but the links are pointing to the source files not the binary. Sure could use some help.

    Thanks.

    The site as of when it was updated, has 2.1.1

    211 has very minor fixes. 2.3 is done I am working on 2.4 now.

    2.3 will be released tomorrow. 2.3 now has dual display modes (Fullscreen/Widescreen) as well as a couple of other things.


    My brother (3d graphic person) just came home for winter break so 2.4 will get a new face lift as well as Voice Command and Griffin power knob just to name a few.

    Interface that I am looking at is the same as MS interface on their automotive platform. A little more cluttered, a lot more moving parts but bigger screen/container area for other applications.
