    The oh-so-exciting main menu:



    Other pictures at my site.

    After that big flash/vb thread a while back, it seemed like there were several people who started projects right after that. Wonder what became of most of them.

    I'm one of them.... exept that the software i`m doing is far from complete. Progress is also very slow as i'm still in the process of getting my hardware in the car (i have yet to finish the case for my computer and lcd), but once i get the hardware side of my project finished, i`ll get round to finishing the software. I'll post somthing when i get something functional.

    ahh.... actually your incorrect Aaron....

    in the case of your system keypad + voice/speech output equals the interface.... - true, its not visual, but its still an interface..

    I'm one of them folks.

    However, as I'm not a developer, I don't have access to dev tools etc, so I'm a little stuck. I was thinking about developing a little database to manage and query playlists, and then building a tool in Indigo Rose or MMB to call MP3 or GPS etc as required. (I bought Indigo Rose for work - w00t!)

    This seems to be the best that I'll be able to do with the tools that are available to me. I'd really like to do everything with a single interface, however it seems that I'll have to just try and make it appear to be a single interface instead.

    C!

    My Flash / VB Combo is going slowly at the moment cause i'm doing too much school work!

    I've written all the technology for it - it communicates with winamp and passes everything on to the flash front end so you can have an entirely custom player. I've had great fun coding it, but some bits are pretty damn annoying - i rewrote the jump searching about 5 times before i got it to a vaguely acceptable speed and it is still not as quick as winamp. It does some pretty nifty things - passes spectrum analyser values on to flash e.t.c.

    When it's available for beta testing I'll let you all know.

    Have a look at the attached screen - its quite nice. Its a bit simple at the moment, but the white cube spins round and kinda follows on the mediabox kinda theme



    P.S. I'm planning to have some pretty nifty effects like passing speeds onto flash so when you are travelling at twice the speed limit all the text motion blurs and falls off the screen. That should freak you out!

    Also, ignore the Loading... text - it is a variable controlled by VB and can show pretty much anything. The whole thing is in flash so it is totally skinnable, but I will include the source for my mediabox flash file.
