Thanks a lot for merging all the patches so far.

For 1.00c I recommend the added patch:
+ correction of dark frame subtraction override
+ improved USB remote support

I need to update to the latest firmware, but one odd thing I noticed is that if I tried to bracket exposures while shooting RAW, the camera would freeze and then shut off after the first picture.

I noticed this as well. My camera usually made it to the second picture but then froze up and shut off.

I can confirm crashes with raw (and dng) bracketing, but can not reproduce
it reliably. Bracketing with jpeg only works.
Most crashes I got after 3 pictures with 1/3Ev + bracket type, 1/5s Start Tv. It seems
as my slower SD card does not crash (at least less often).

I also get no crashes when I activate the continuous mode via the custom timer (icon with C) and then just have to press once to release the specified number of raw shots. When I use the continuous mode with the stacked rectangles icon, I have to keep the shoot button pressed - till it crashes.

I put the latest build (874), which is no longer beta (Yay!) onto my card and the camera would no longer boot.  Cardtricks went crazy and I tried several things and nothing worked, until I replaced the current DISKBOOT.BIN with the one from February 6th.  It will boot from every other DISKBOOT.BIN file I tried it with, just not the one from build 874.  Does this present a problem that needs to be addressed, or does this file truly only allows the camera to boot from the card.  Every file is a different size, which makes me ask the question.

Cardtricks went crazy

Can you explain what you did, and in what way CT went crazy ?
If you found a bug in CT, I'll gladly fix it; if not i should be able to explain what went wrong (i hope)

thanks,

wim

I opened up CardTricks and it ask me to browse to the card, which I did, but it kept asking me to do the same thing, ad infinite-um.  The only way I could get out of this loop, was to stop it through the Task Manager.  I tried it twice, thinking the first time was just a glitch, but, it wasn't.  Hope you're successful in getting this fixed, it worked before for me about a year ago.

@NormanA

You're the second person to report this behaviour (from ~ 100.000 downloaders)
When the first person reported this, I was mystified, but after some exchange of
posts we determined the reason. So, here's my guess:

You moved the program - and forgot the CardTricks folder with helper files, which
should be in the same folder as CardTricks144.exe (as in attached pic)

Solution 1: find the folder & reunite with the program
Solution 2: redownload http://savedonthe.net/download/78/CardTricks-144-SFX.exe

HTH,

wim

Wim,

I checked my CardTricks folder, and found that I had indeed used the wrong file to open the program.  Thanks for the information, however, I now, also realize that the problem is with DISKBOOT.BIN, it's not working, unless I use one of the other files from a previous build.  They all work fine, but, not the one from the current build.  Am I losing functionality by using this older file with the newer build?  The size of the new file is 263,668, dated Feb. 13, 2010.  The latest one that works has a size of 252,729 and is dated Feb. 6, 2010.
