    Formatting

    I am installing TinyXP rev 5 on my CarPC (formatting). It means that I will rebuild from scratch. I've saved many folders to I wont lose all the previous job.

    I did a quick test in VMWare and TinyXP is indeed very light. I hope it is compatible with the softwares I'll need to use.

    It works! I am using 800x480 in my Lilliput 889GL.

    Thumbs up First Preview Pictures!

    (edit: Project changed, this preview pictures are no longer valid. See page 4)


    Hi there!

    Today I took some pictures of the car, BEFORE INSTALLATION BEGINS!


    This is my 95 Civic EX AT Sedan



    This is where I think about installing the Screen. Will fabricate a console for it.



    This is another view of my idea. Note that the screen will use the cup holder and ligher area.



    This is where I think about installing the CarPC CPU. I am thinking about installing it on the top of the trunk, because the speakers are large and there is some space between them.
    (edit: Changed the trunk layout, see another post on page 3)


    I appreciate any feedback! Thanks!

    Thanks!

    Hi Vlad, congratulations on your CarPC project progress!

    I'm also interested in buying the hardware but right now (in my little precious free time) i'm working in my own 'skin' of RoadRunner (in fact it will be a new frontend, but I will try to keep some kind of compatibility with RR/MediaCar skins) using WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation, aka Avalon, and BASE of Silverlight, the new web user interface plataform by MS) and C# in .NET 3.5

    I'm starting the tests embedding D6 inside WPF, now I have a problem that COM objects are layered Windows inside WPF, and like ActiveX on Internet Explorer are ALWAYS on Top, you can't use overlayers.

    So I found a way using some hack in .NET to Copy the visual to a BitmapSource of a VisualBrush so I will be able to render it like I wanted in WPF also taking advantage of true 3D rendering, I could make a "Cube-like" interface or something similar easy.

    Hope I can soon share my progress with you and other (few yet) brazilian CarPC users.

    Cya!

    See ya!

    É muito bom encontrar cada vez mais brasileiros interessados no assunto!

    Switching back to english

    Are you using the destinator.exe (Destinator 6 for PCs) or the Destinator SDK? I followed that thread (see post above) with instructions on how to extract Destinator6 from Centrafuse 1.12, and it works perfect. Destinator6 has a much better GUI. Previsouly I was using Mapmonkey (that uses Destinator3 SDK).

    So far the only "integration" I did was changing RR configuration to use "External" (instead of MapMonkey) and point to the destinator.exe.

    See the thread I mentioned, there are some discussions about real integration efforts.

    When you have time, create a worklog and post your project ideas.

    Take care!

    Reinstalling CarPC (again)

    I decided to reformat and install TinyXP rev 05 again, and then try different settings on the Intel 815 driver.

    The reason is that previsously the Intel IEGD driver trick I found in that thread (see post above) allowed me to use 800x480, but the image was distorted. So I installed PowerStrip to ajust the image (shrink in vertical), but its a commercial product, and before I have to buy it there is a chance it will work by adjusting reg keys that the driver installation reads before first boot.

    The problem is that I think that these adjustments are only possible thru reinstallation of OS or driver, because it reads the registry keys after the setup completes before booting.

    Will post here the .reg file if I find the correct values.

    Arrow Testing Destinator6 and RoadRunner

    Here is some screenshots of my CarPC running Destinator 6 with Brazillian maps, running on RoadRunner (note BMV2 skin on the topbar) and using Destinator6 skin by Nomader (thanks!):




    So far, the skin I liked best is DigitalFX 2.0, but I need to spend some time to make Destinator run in this skin.
