all titles should start with uppercase.
Agree !

Does "synthèse" properly convey the meaning of the Summary step title?
I guess so.

for the language tip, my doubt is linked to the fact I did not understand how to change Language in CHIMP. so assumption is that in any case, the user will have to change it, if needed through the hack.

Last but not least, list of hacks is probably too long for me to use -and understand ! - all of them ;-) More seriously the "hack" word is often misunderstood from french only speakers, but the french traduction frequently used ("pirate") is often perceived as negative.
Option could be to review translation after some users provide feedback, if any, to check wether other translation would be better ?

huuuummm

Please use the latest version from GitHub.
I can find the source files here, but not the program folder itself. What did I the wrong way ? (I told you:I'm very low on the learning curve !)

I had a similar problem with the Russian translation. I resorted to "third-party software".

I meant: How could I download last version of running program to check translation on the github ?
maybe just replacing the resources.fr in CHIMP on my pc ?

Thanks, I'll have a look.

I'm planning on releasing a new version over the weekend, which will hopefully include your translation. I wish msl were able to finish the German one as well...

I'm sorry I misunderstood your question. *.resx are compiled into satellite assemblies (CHIMP.Resources.dll), so I believe Visual Studio is your best option (unless you really enjoy using command line tools). The Community Edition is free for non-commercial use and has everything that's needed for building and debugging CHIMP.

Huuummmm I must admit I'm not good at programming ;-) So I'll focus on ubasic: that's the best I can do! keeping other tools to programers !
There is, from my perspective, no hurry to explore CHIMP furthermore. I was just wondering wether the language is set by default (from the pc config ?) or you can select it within CHIMP ?
Thanks again for this tool.

The language is taken from the Windows setting, but it can be overridden via the /lang command line argument, e.g. /lang fr

Hi Dmitrys,
I  don't really know the cause for this but I had an issue with a 2 Go card prepared for a S90 camera, for SDM use.
All the installation phase went well, but when i used the card, it was impossible to review the pictures on the card within camera. On my old XP laptop, the pc was asking to format the card before use.
In W10 I saw that many folders have been created, one for each sequence of picture (after each restart of the camera and restarting numbering from 000).
It looks like a multiple partition set up ( not really sure ??). that is surprising with a 2Go card.
I finally used my xp laptop to reinstall properly the card with assist.
I will later try to reproduce this issue, but will do this in september.

So, I tried to update CHIMP 2+ years after the last version had been released. Frankly I didn't expect so many new cameras/revisions added to CHDK - great to know the project is still alive and well!

Here is a summary of issues encountered when running the metadata generator:


I added both g7x2 and sx280hs-102d manually, leaving the ALT buttons as is for now. You may find the updated boot.json and cameras.json in a patch added on the Release page.

If anyone is willing to check out the updated metadata generator, I moved it here. Yes, it's a maintenance nightmare (publishing every single dependency to NuGet was a terrible idea), but it is .NET Core 2.0, so in theory it could be added to CHDK autobuild.

Edit: Now slightly less a maintenance nightmare.
Edit: Upgraded to .NET Core 2.0 (console logging).

Nice to see the update !  Any current thoughts on this post :

does CHIMP have a way to install "unofficial" builds?
Although this feature was planned for 0.9.0, it currently requires a significant effort to implement. It will be done eventually, of course.

The issue of not being able to use CHIMP for unofficial builds has come up several times in the last two years.  Which is quite often given the fairly low volume of new users joining the project.
