Have just tried relevant builds for my M3 and G7X.

OSD display, menus and my camera specific bracketing scripts all appear normal and working as expected.

I will obviously flag up any anomalies if they appear.

BTW, will that google drive link remain for the foreseeable future? That is, so I can reference your (repository) link. Plus will you push new builds into the existing links, so they remain good for the foreseeable future?

Cheers

Garry

(M3 121a)  :)
If the AF-frame is stable then the OSDs and menues are stable too ...
else eg the seconds are nervous in the clock (not during script runs).

This is because of this line in lib.c

There need to update both bitmap buffers:
Code: [Select]
    _transfer_src_overlay(0);
    _transfer_src_overlay(1);

Firmware update booting for M3 is disabled in the makefile - comment states there are hardware initialisation issues.

  g12 (1.00c, 1.00e, 1.00f & 1.00g)
  sx130is (1.01d & 1.01f)

Yes I can keep the link active and updated for the time being.

Just noticed a 'strangeness' that occurs on the G5X.

If you toggle to the blank Canon display (no Canon overlays), ie using the INFO button, then go into CHDK mode the ALT 'bar' at the bottom disappears/returns as the scene changes.

The disappearing only occurs with no Canon overlay.

On the G7X you always see some Canon overlay.

Yes: that fixed it  :)

Looks like you are still tweaking/refining the C code?

Hi,
I had been pointed to this thread due to the boring flickering of CHDK OSD and menues on DIGIC-6 cams. As far as I understood the discussion there are builds under development for M3 and G7X that try to avoid this and probably some other flaws.
I can offer to test those stuff on my SX700HS (that has DIGIC-6 proc too) if someone can provide an appropriate build.

Regards
