Still hacking on the plugin, this time, doing a new external library, WindowUtils, which will currently have two high level functions

GetWindowIDFromTitle() - Gets the Window # from a title fragment. This is used to find the MAME window.
SendKeystrokeToWindowID() - This uses XSendEvent to pass keystrokes to the emulator window. I use XSendEvent _BECAUSE_ the orbiter window may not be in focus at all times, and I need to be able to periodically send events (for example, Screenshot, to grab a video frame.)

work progresses onward, also having to deal with my health, so i am taking this slow.

This may if it becomes mature enough, be a nice replacement for the wmctrl calls all over Orbiter.

took a small sideline today, to implement the UI2 popup menu:

http://www.localeconcept.com/pub/scratch/games/now_with_ui2_menu.png

 ;D

still need to implement the DesignObjs for UI1, which is a bit more difficult.

How you like that? three major things in one day so far:

* The first bits of UI2 done (above)
* WindowUtils::SendKeyToWindow() now works properly.. I will need to add two more complimentary functions for dealing with held down keys in OSD mode
* and because of that.. I was able to implement GetVideoFrame, and as a side effect? ... Thumbnail works!

http://www.localeconcept.com/pub/scratch/games/now_with_get_video_frame.png

I fight on.

and just when things couldn't get any better....

holy crap, I did it.

I managed to trigger frames (a la the DVD menu option) on the orbiter! see for yourselves!

the video says it all...

Hi,

first thanks for great work... if I understood right, you have managed to create and add new screen to LMCE system using Designer ?

If that's true, could you possible devote some time and describe procedure to do it ? Iwanted to add two screens to LMCE some time ago, but never had a courage to battle with designer....

basically I wanted to create screens :
- for incoming call from doorphone (where I could add camera to incoming call screen so one can actually see person at the front door)
- for audio receivers (currently there is no screen for Audio receivers that have custom commands , so no "stock" screen matches it well enough....

Thanks in advance for any info,

regards,

Bulek....

Is MAME likely to be integrated in the final 0710 release? Or does it need to be manually added by the user?

Would be great for the develpoers to integrate this as standard - as said previously, the ROMS can actually be bought in 'arcade packs' so theres no harm in having the emulator for them!

given the way Pluto's system is designed, there is no choice, but to integrate it into the stack. But it won't be in the 0710 release. I still have so many issues to resolve (I'm targeting a complete orbiter UI for ALL of the targets, even the Cisco phone!, as well as auto-configuring joysticks, moving media etc..etc..etc..), so it will most likely be put in at or after 0804.

Lots happened since I last wrote:

* The first DesignObjs for an orbiter UI have been created. Although I need to get them into the Build Process so that they will be part of the new orbiter, before they are Usable. http://www.localeconcept.com/pub/scratch/games/newcontroller1.png
* Infrared remote control now works, if I set the FK_Screen_OSD to 128 (which is the PVR OSD remote), this has an OSD ScreenType, so all key presses that are recieved from Infra-red devices go to the local media player, which is precisely what I want to happen.
* MAME Config Creator and Parser. Currently, gets the correct rom path for the selected rom. This allows the roms to be placed anywhere that the system can find them. There is also an allowance to set the graphic accelleration method. In the future this should probably be gotten from the MD's device data.

I am currently working on trying to get the media file list views to properly display the popups for Sort, Filter, Source, and More. This is proving harder than I thought.... ugh.
