It's all done and ready to try out.

First and foremost, I want to stress that this is still a "beta" release, I've done what testing I can with the help of some others, but there will probably be issues that need resolving when you use this.

That said, here are some steps you need to take before trying this out.

1.) Download and install .NET 3.5 framework. This is a code framework from Microsoft that makes .NET development in managed languages (like C# which is what this is written in) easier. This is required, there is no way around it. I used this version of the framework for the clock engine because I also wanted to be able to stick this in a Silverlight application to have online.

You can get the .NET 3.5 framework installer here.

2.) Update your Logitech LCD manager software. My version is the latest, 3.03. If yours isn't, you may have issues. To do so:
  • Find the icon in your system tray.
  • Right click and go to Settings...
  • Click the "About" button on the right, if your version isn't 3.03, continue.
  • Click on the "Internet Updates" button on the right.
  • Click the "Check for Updates..." button.


If you made it this far, you're all set. Download the app from the link below. I am using my own host for this, so if traffic becomes too bad I will be forced to take it down.

Download Link: http://renkeidorkz.com/files/LCDEorzeaClock.msi

Unzip the file to where ever you want (just make sure you can find it afterwards! Smiley: smile)

Double click on the .MSI
Screenshot


There are several screens to the installer, the only one important is this one:
Screenshot

You can change the install path if you wish, but the default is fine.

If you want to uninstall the program at any time, just look for this icon in your Programs and Features (for Windows 7 and Vista) or Add/Remove Programs (for Windows XP):
Screenshot


The program shows up in your Programs menu, no subfolder, looking like this:
Screenshot


Go ahead and click on that to start the program. At this point, if it doesn't show up on your keyboard's display, you may need to change the app using the app switcher button on the keyboard.

For monochrome display users (G15 and older):
The first button (of the 4 under the display) shows the time in game and current. The second button shows the countdown timer.

Screenshot

Page2:
Screenshot

For color display users (G19):
The left button shows the time in game and current. The right button shows the countdown timer.
Page 1:

Screenshot

While the program is running, there will be an icon in your system tray:
Screenshot

Right clicking on this icon gives you what little control there is to the app. From here you can close it. You can also set it to start up when Windows starts:
Screenshot

That's it.

A few disclaimers:

Please be careful when installing any software on your computer. Zam is certainly not liable for anything you do, and I'm not either. This is use at your own risk in other words. That being said, the risk is minimal at best.

Please report any issues to this thread. I will do my best to help you out. I have an LCD simulator here, but it only does color or monochrome, it doesn't emulate the specific devices. After a certain period of time, if there are no more issues, I will release a stable version of this software. I will try to include neat features like automatic updating (so you don't have to download and install anything after the initial install), plus implement other features as we learn more about the game.

Thanks everyone and enjoy!

One other thing I noticed about this. There are 32 game days in a game month. That hints strongly that we will have the same days as in XI, since the weeks will probably be 8 days long and months will be 4 weeks long (8 x 4 = 32).

This looks really great Wint, I wish I still had my G15. Just out of curiosity, what environment do you write apps for the G15 in? Is it a proprietary environment, or something like C or C++?

Ok here ya go, everything seems to be working great, only thing is I would increase the font size just slightly. I can't read/write code to save my life though, and I also don't have my glasses on.

I'm not in Beta and therefore not sure if this is a valid question or not, but I know in FFXI Sun/Moon Phase played a huge part in crafting/fishing. Does this application handle that as well?

Just as I said I really wanted a G15 because of this, I was at the store today, and they had refurbished ones for 45$. Needless to say I'm typing this from a G15 with your mod displaying :).


Thanks for the work you put into this!!

Update already incoming. Saw a slight typo for monochrome users, and I have some VERY nice things in store for G19 users. That extra scratch you spent on your keyboard will be well spent by the time I'm done.

I will post again and update the OP when it's live.

Version 1.0.1 is released. Minor fix and some eye candy for the G19 users.

If someone with a G19 can take a screenshot for each of the 3 cities and send them to me that would be great! Make sure you uninstall the previous version.

The next release will be the last for that nonsense, going to include an auto-update feature.

I love the fact that this app has a "Countdown to Release" timer. Makes the wait for the game THAT MUCH longer, but it's a great feature.

Question... Once the game is released, can we expect more features for the apps to be added? Maybe HP/MP/TP bars?

The bars I can add only if we are allowed to hook into the game, or somehow gain access to those stats. If we can, I'll add it for sure.
