Is there any way you could add the reset timers to the main window on the G19 display? At least below 14 font size there's plenty of room for it.

I'm planning on separating the G15 display from the G19, so I can do more stuff for G19 users but that is down the road a bit.

The crash from before is gone, but it still dowsn't work.
I think, at least in part, it's because i'm in Australia.
Your log file says
25/09/2010 6:00 PM String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.,Main(),Program.cs,G15EorzeaClock

And as you can see my date format is dd/mm/yyyy which i think is different from the expected format.

I should also add what changes are coming I suppose:
  • Ship schedule
  • Moon phase
  • Link to character data on Lodestone
  • Separate applications for G19 versus G15/G13 users. The G19 users spent more, and with all that screen space it seems a shame to limit them to what I can fit on the G15 display. Makes me wish I had a G19 myself Smiley: frown



You keep making these awesome upgrades, and I'm gonna have to trade my G15 for a G19 lol.

Again, awesome App! Makes me glad I own this beast of a keyboard.

Hmmm. I thought my localization logic would work, but apparently I need to change some things. I'll get back to you this, hopefully I'll have a fix in tonight sometime.

well...this makes me happy I bought my G15! I bought it when I was still playing WoW, but quit before I could really use it. Although I love it in vent!

So far it's promising, worked almost perfectly with no major problems. I do have one question, though, how come you have to have an icon in windows for it to work? Or did you do that so the options can be used easily?

Thank you the most for the Leves reset counter!! The one bug I saw is that the time on the Leves Reset changes (currently it changes between 4:59 AM and 5:00 AM), not sure if you knew this, thought I'd let you know.

Also, i'm curious about what people use their G15/G19 displays for other than this...I haven't really found too much practical uses other than Vent or WoW. Of course, I don't want to hijack this thread, so please PM me if you wanna answer me =P

The icon is there so you can start and stop the app and control the options. Most people frown on headless apps running on their system with no way to control it other than task manager Smiley: wink

Ss far as the timer issue, I'm not sure I understand the issue. Leves reset here at 7am or 7pm, depending which 36 hour period we are in. Last I looked at mine, it was displaying the proper time.

To the user who was having issues with his because of time differences in how the date is formatted, I haven't had time to look at it yet, hopefully today.

program looks good, just wish I could run it. I have a G15 but it wont show up as running on my LCD or in my LCD managaer. Ive made sure .net 3.5 is turned on in windows 7 but still hasnt made a diffrece. I get an error if I dont run it as an admim also. Everything is up to date with windows 7, My G15 profiler says ver 3.06.109 and LCD manager is also fully up to date.

and this is the error I get when not in admin

Does it run long enough to show the system tray icon? Or does it quit immediately upon start up? I have my UAC disabled, so that could be an issue. mscorlib is not a very descriptive component, it houses a ton of functionality. Since logging is disabled by default, I don't think it's a problem with writing to the file, so my only suspicion at this point is that it writes a few configuration entries to the registry when first started, and then when any settings are changed. Can you try running as administrator and see what happens?

K, well I disabled my UAC, and ran as admin, it icon shows up but doesnt show up in my LCD config or on the kerboard LCD. did an uninstall and reinstall same thing, oh well Must be somethign on my end giving it problems.

I went into the folder itself and checked the error log and this is what keeps popping up

Aha, I think I know the problem. You aren't in the US are you? What is your default date time format? Is it DD/MM/YYYY?

I'm working on fixing that. We have a user from Australia above, and I don't expect everyone to use the same format as we do. I will post when I have a fix in place.

Hrm.. Cool app..
I don't understand, what good is Eorzea time?
I have a G15 sitting in a box in my basement as a spare keyboard that I got recently heavily discounted. Was thinking about hooking it up..

I'm a programmer, so I could probably help you code some of this stuff.. I just don't know what languages / scripts / etc it uses so I'd have to research this a bit before I jump in. Is all the work you're doing open source / Public Domain?

Personally I'd much rather see an LCD app that showed server status.. Anybody else interested in such an app or have any other ideas about information they want displayed on their G15 keyboard?

Just curious, was this approved by SE? The title of the thread says "official launch", but it doesn't say "official app". After what happened with the XIV Windower I don't want a useful app like this get a C&D letter.

It's not approved, but I don't hook into the game at all, it's all just simple mathematics.

To answer the other question, right now I'm keeping development in house as it were, I have time and desire to work on it, so I'd like to keep the project mine. Server status is definitely something that will be added.

Can one of you who were having issues with the date formatting first uninstall the app, then download the MSI again? I've updated it with what I hope is a fix for your issues.

This is as close as I can test it, and now the date formatting shouldn't matter.

Just wanted to say thank yo, Wint. The Leve Reset feature is very helpful. Looking forward to seeing just how far you can take this project.

I see you made a Sidebar app as well. If you could add some Leve Reset-centric features to that, it wouldn't leave my desktop, since when not actually playing I might not always notice the countdown on the keyboard but will definitely see it looking me in the face on the desktop. Maybe have it able to play a sound 2hs/1hr/30 min/etc prior to the reset? Possibly checkboxes to enable which of those we want to use? Or custom alarm settings even? How about a 'Stay on Top' type of option, so if I'm fullscreen browsing I'll still notice it?

Again, thank you for your hard work. Looking forward to hearing what you think about my suggestions.

It should work even if your date/time settings are changed. If there is anyone from outside the US, whose national default is different from mm/dd/yyyy, can you try it and let me know if it's working.

I had discontinued support for that, but I guess if there is enough interest I can add the same features. It won't get the same love that my logitech app gets but I will see what I can do.

Wint, the issue I was talking about above with the time displaying wrong isn't actually the time itself (it does reset at 5AM/PM here) but it flickers from (for example) leve reset time 5:00PM to 4:59PM. I can take a video and upload it if you'd like to see exactly what I mean. It's not anything that needs to be addressed, I just thought maybe you'd like to know about it.

I want to thank you again for making this! Despite it always being every 36 hours at 5AM or PM, it's so easy to forget what day the reset was or even if it's supposed to reset and night or morning. Do you have any updates planned for the G15?

Aside from the server status above, I'm exploring ways to query your profile on the Lodestone site, like this one:

http://lodestone.finalfantasyxiv.com/rc/character/status?cicuid=1279504

And pulling back character data. I've also been working on a specialized font for the G15's so I can fit more data on each screen.

Also, I'll look into the flickering issue, I think that is an issue with the milliseconds, I may need to just add a set amount to get it to round up to where it needs to be.

Thanks, i'll test this when I get home (at work atm).
It good to see this being worked on. It hasn't affected me much atm as ,even though I bought the CE, I actually haven't had the time to play it (We have a big roll-out at work early Oct).
A little sad that not only could I not use the head start, but I'll be weeks behind even norm edition players.
Oh well, hopefully I'll be a little ahead of the PS3 players.... Maybe...

Side Note: I was experiencing the flicker as well, but figured I'd get one issue sorted out at a time in case they were linked.

I will say, my app is as limited as every other status site, the servers can be pinged but they might still be not letting people log in.

I have no idea what that is, links? Do they provide an SDK? Is there a .NET wrapper for it already? Smiley: smile

Love the display app but could you possibly make a 'version #' or 'last download update' in the first line of original post? I keep checking to see if new stuff has been added but it's not really easy to do without scrolling checking for new posts every day and reading through 'thanks' and 'i have a issue with it' posts to find no updates.

If it's there I overlooked it and apologize.

Something like that will be possible in the next release, I've created a new font that is smaller and still legible so I can add more features to the monochrome displays.

Would be great if it worked with the mediadisplay of the Logitech Z-10 soundset. Anyway to make it work?


I have no idea what that is, links? Do they provide an SDK? Is there a .NET wrapper for it already? Smiley: smile


Logitech Z-10 is a soundset for pc with a logitech mediadisplay in it.

http://www.logitech.com/nl-nl/439/202?WT.z_sp=Image&osid=13&bit=64

It worked with STO and APB.

The date bug is gone, it doesn't wok on the G19 till i reboot the Pc and upon loading it crashs.
Only the G19 part is bugging out though, the info shows up on my Z-10 quite nicly.
The Z-10 basically uses the G15's orangish monocrome LCD display.
The only prob there is it suffers from the leavs reset flicker issue.

So even though It's not working on my G19, it's working fine on my Z-10 speakers.
(To the chap who was asking how to make it work on thw Z-10, ensure that you have enabled the program for the Z-10 in the LCD manger. By default it only seems to enable the keyboard)

Interesting that it crashes on the G19. I have a G15, so I have to emulate the G19 display and it works fine for me on it. I'll try to do some more troubleshooting on it. Between taking care of my two kids, working full time, going to school half time, and being an admin here, my plate is rather full Smiley: grin

I will try to make bugs and crashes first priority though.

Ouch, that's one full schedule. No hurry on my part, the Z-10 part works fine, so all i am missing out is the pretty colour's and Gridania theme. :)

Unfortunatly all the error log shors is
4/10/2010 4:09 PM The process cannot access the file 'D:\Utils\Digin00bs\LCDEorzeaClock\events.log' because it is being used by another process.,Applet_DeviceArrival(),Program.cs,G15EorzeaClock
It seems to have locked it's own error file.

lol, I read my own post and relised something.
Whilst the start with windows part does still crash I have the app running fine now.

I relised the main issue. I have both the Z-10 and the G19 running. Your app can't handle running both the G15 (which the Z-10 uses) and the G19 versions of the program.
I identified this by unplugging my speakers and rebooting. The G19 version is now displaying correctly.
(Well aside from that Leves reset flicker issue)

So it was my fault for running 2 logitech products. ^_^

Hmmm, that seems like a bug still, it's designed to talk to both. I'll troubleshoot it here, see if I can't reproduce the behavior. If the only problem is a locked logging file, then I need to put better error handling around that so it doesn't crash the app if the log file is inaccessible. I'll make sure that fix is included in the next release.

Wint, you are totally the man. I have a G15 and followed your install directions and got it up and running easily. However, for some reason my display shows the FFXIV well but the times are cut off and aren't displaying properly. I made sure the logi software was up to date and all so I'm not exactly sure what to do to fix the actual time font sizing. Any ideas?

I can probably shed some light on that as I just had the same issue, though I shall give the verbose version before revealing my findings :)

Downloaded installed fine from the link on front page but had text off screen.
Tried playing about with the font size to check the default wasnt bugged but didnt help.
Actualy found the size didnt change unless you selected a non default g19 look though im running a g15.
Was only able to make it worse not better this way.

Went to check my installed .NET frameworks, had 1.1, and 2 entries for 4 Client Profile & Extended.
Downloaded .Net 3.5 from your link on front page, which I presume is a web installer, ran it and nothing happened.
So searched and downloaded the full version 231MB version, this ran the unpacking install part but then generated an error saying it didnt install right.
Tried again but using sugested settings but still didnt work.
Restarted to check but nope not on the list, im guessing 4 here supercedes 3.5 and contains all that is needed?

So then im walking the dog thinking ill make this post when I get back and it hits me, what if my windows settings are affecting the app as it is sitting resident on my task bar.
I changed the display from the default 125% to 100%, did the required log out and back in, restarted clock and bingo bango the text all shows up the right size!

Now I dont know if that is because im missing part of .NET 3.5, though I do know I havent had the problem with any other LCD apps like the built in ones or LOTRO.

So I will list my vital statistics and leave you to puzzle it out :)

Keyboard : Logitech G15 original 18 G-Key Man-Size version ;)
LCD Software Version : 3.06.109 08/03/2010
OS : Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
Regional Setting : United Kingdom

Also I presume the server status isnt in the public version yet, only had 2 buttons working.

If it's running you probably have the correct version. I'm so glad you got it working Smiley: thumbsup

That's interesting that DPI affects the logitech screen as well, but I know the G19 harnesses the DWM (desktop window manager) and so I suppose the G15 would as well. The fact that it uses DWM is pretty neat actually, you can even run silverlight apps in the G19 that way. It's pretty fancy stuff.

I expect the other games are probably written in C++. I'm using a .NET wrapper to the C++ dll, so something in there could be not translating over properly. I'm taking a C++ class now, if I end up feeling comfortable enough I might rewrite this in C++ but I doubt it Smiley: grin

Just wanted to say thank yo, Wint. The Leve Reset feature is very helpful. Looking forward to seeing just how far you can take this project.

I see you made a Sidebar app as well. If you could add some Leve Reset-centric features to that, it wouldn't leave my desktop, since when not actually playing I might not always notice the countdown on the keyboard but will definitely see it looking me in the face on the desktop. Maybe have it able to play a sound 2hs/1hr/30 min/etc prior to the reset? Possibly checkboxes to enable which of those we want to use? Or custom alarm settings even? How about a 'Stay on Top' type of option, so if I'm fullscreen browsing I'll still notice it?

Again, thank you for your hard work. Looking forward to hearing what you think about my suggestions.


I had discontinued support for that, but I guess if there is enough interest I can add the same features. It won't get the same love that my logitech app gets but I will see what I can do.


I would like to put my hand up for the sidebar app. I loved the countdown timer pre-release and would also be interested in that being replaced with a leve countdown.

Another suggestion i could make if you are looking at more features, is to include the timezone that SE puts announcements in i.e. PDT or GMT. This would help those in different timezones work out when a scheduled maintenance or event will affect them. So essentially you could have Local Time, GMT/PDT Time and In-Game Time.

Fantastic idea, I'll definitely add that to both Smiley: thumbsup

Lol, I read that and decided to turn my speakers back on to see what happens.
(I had already activated the G19 one) and voila the are both working.
The only issue i have now (aside from the know leve timer flicker) is I have to have the font set low (currently at 7) else it doesn't fit on the Z-10. But 7 is reallly tiny on the G19.

Still, yay. The app is behaving itself better.

I imagine when I break out the G19 from the G15/13 code, it will perform better. I want to try to keep it all with the same system tray app so I imagine you should be able to configure both separately. We'll see how things go, I've been so busy that I'm not sure when I'll get to it, but I'll get there.

I take it from your screenshots you have the second revision 6 g-key g15?
Have you been able to reproduce the symptoms on yours, now you know what was causing the trouble for some of us?
Or is it only the original version that suffers this?

I put my display back to the 125% anyway or it means eye strain or changing my desktop res for just 1 app :)
I can see the time till reset anyway, and dont have to put up with the time flicker at the end of the top line :)

I've actually created a custom font for the app, and it's quite a bit smaller so even with increased DPI it should still fit. I may use you as a guinea pig to try it out Smiley: smile

As far as somehow disabling the DPI, I don't think I can so hopefully between the font selector and the new font it will solve your issue.[quote=Wint]It's all done and ready to try out. I haven't had the time I need to work on it lately, but it's fairly close to having the server status available. I had to write some code to mask the server addresses in the source, but now that is done so it's just a matter of cleaning things up. I also need to figure out how to install a font from an MSI file, otherwise I'll have to write up separate instructions on how to do that.
