After three years the UF1 withdrawal symptoms have mainly faded...but I still have occasional attacks. One day I will unleash the power of the beast again.
I can see your reasoning there, so fingers crossed you will get the digital speedo before release....where would you be without it eh?
I tried. I never worked with DirectX before and I just spent one or two days so I can´t guarantee anything. However, I have been using DigitalSpeedo for about two weeks on 0.6f without a problem .
I love this mod so I want to thanks to gru for his awesome work .
I attached the program and source code, in case someone wants to take a look. About source code, its not as pretty as I would like now because VS wasn´t happy about renaming folders and projects from dx8 to dx9 . I used Visual Studio Express 2013.
I hope it works and you enjoy it.
PD: I am sorry about my bad english guys, but i guess you´ll understand me.
Could you insert another change? An option (checkbox or something like that) which cuts the last 2 numbers of RPM? F.e. instead display 6578 RPM just 6.5k. I get eye cancer and epileptic seizure at same time when i look at this fast changing numbers.
That never happened to me before and I didnt have a clue so I tought it was related to 64 bits (I have Windows 7 32 bits). So i tried to run LFS on a virtual machine with no luck :facepalm. Also, I saw that you use LFSLazy too (nice mod, i didnt knew it) but after i installed the last version posted on his thread it worked excellent (DigitalSpeedo and LFSlazy).
Finally, I realized what was the problem thanks to Rentner. It is related to the size of numbers. The size is a config in DS, and i think it adjusts according to resolution when you go to window mode. But if the size it too small, you get the error on your screenshot. As a workaround, test it with fullscreen or with a bigger size (50 worked ok for me) on window mode. I´ll try to fix that but I have to study for exams next week so I cant promise a fast solution.
Please, reinstall it and let me know if that works .
I guess its possible but I cant promise that soon. The digits are actually a image displayed, not a text so the best approach I think that could be to round the last digits, instead of 6.5k or 6578 show 6500 when a checkbox is activated. Would that change work for you? I think that displayed numbers are only updated when they change so that would avoid the blinking too I guess.
Actually, that came to my mind too when I read Nilex lol . Thanks for the info, I would never tried LFS in a window other way.
