With a TON of help from khorbin (I sent you a PM by the way, one niggling bug to work out of my clock engine) with the code for the clock engine, I've managed to cobble together something for the Logitech G15:

Screenshot


If there is enough interest (and keyboards), I will enhance this for the G19. I need to test it for the other models that have monochrome displays, but I believe it will work on any of them. Sorry for the crappy picture, just used my phone to get something out there.

Also, any suggestions for things that could be added now (once we know what days are called, etc I will update it) let me know.

I like it cuz you don't have to type in /clock or something everytime this way - too bad i can't use it cuz I wont have a keyboard capable of doing that but good idea anyway.

Very nice. One suggestion tho, the time is a little too small while the FFXIV logo is so big. Might be better to switch the size between the two. Just a thought.

I can change the font if we end up going with this as it is. I added a crappy ZAM logo, in case they want to host it for me and put a brand on it Smiley: grin

I can do multiple pages too, so if it doesn't fit on this page just hit one of the buttons to go to the next Smiley: grin

No iPhone app yet, haven't had time. This was easier to do, only took a couple of hours.

I'll have to check, if nothing else I could handle it in the refresh.

I would love to find people who run XP to make sure it works for them. I need to clean some stuff up and create a system tray icon for it as well as an installer so it can be run as a service at startup.

I wondered, if there's any difference between that G15 and the older one I have (Blue backlit keys, monochrome display). Mine currently works, but I was debating on upgrading KB and Mouse. I'm very interested in what you are creating here though. I love handy gadgets/apps

Wow Rainier, you have a G19? 2 G19's even. I just has Osarion test it on XP, I think we're in business.

I need one thing. Can someone take this logo, and clean up the X and the V so they look sharper?

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v215/jdonner/FFXIV/FFXIVLogo.png

While someone is working on that, I will finish creating the installer and system tray controls.

For those of you lucky enough to own a G19, I have some special plans for that model Smiley: nod

Once done, I'll try to find a host, or will find some way to distribute it that doesn't kill my host (unless Zam would like to host it Smiley: grin)

I'm told this should work for any of the monochrome models. If you would like to test it and don't mind being a guinea pig, PM me and I'll send you a download link and instructions. Bear in mind, whatever you download is not complete yet, and I would appreciate you not sharing it with anyone else right now, thanks!

Almost ready. I'm nearly done with the system tray icon, and the installer shouldn't be too hard to set up. I'm going to try to add code in it today so that it will work for the G19, as it is it doesn't. Drawing pages for the G19 is different than the G15, and a little more complex so we'll see how that goes. If all goes well, I expect to have a download link for you later today.

It should work for any of the monochrome display keyboards. LordDVS has that one I believe, and we're working on getting the app to him so he can test it out. When I release it I'll make sure to list compatibility. If he can't test it for whatever reason, would you be willing to try it out?

Yep, I will. I'm almost done with the Notification Icon. When complete, I'll create a new post that has details of how to install, and how the program works. I would like you to confirm that it works on the G13 for me if you would please.

That's a good idea, I'll see if I can add something like that.

Very close to having a "beta" release ready. I'm testing the start up behavior, found a few issues once I installed it with the MSI installer.

To prepare those of you who want it, these are some prerequisites:

  • You will need to download and install the .NET 3.5 framework. When I officially post this, I will provide a link to where you can download it but if you want to be proactive, fire up Google and go get it installed.
  • Make sure that your LCD Manager software is up to date. When Osarion tested it for me, his older software had some issues.


I would say look for a post in the next couple of hours from me with the download.

how do you like the MX5500? was thinking of purchasing it as I need a new mouse and the keyboard would be nice as well. it's either that or buying the G700 mouse for me, not sure yet.

Edit: On topic, Excellent App, though I don't have one of the aforementioned keyboards.

In case anyone is interested, I just found a 2nd Gen G15 for $39.99 after Mail-In-Rebate and coupon code on Newegg.

$20.00 MIR and $10.00 coupon code EMCYWNV37 ($89.99 regular price, discounted to $69.99 minus $10 coupon and $20 MIR = $39.99)
