Patch to include a separate camnotes.txt in the ZIP.

This is meant to enable CHIMP to show camera-specific notes upon completion of a CHDK install (very old screenshot).

Patch to localize the remaining module names (not included in the previous patch due to false perception of the existence of "system modules").
  • Added strings:
    • "RAW Operations"
    • "Shot Histogram"
    • "Hex Number Editor"
    • "Text Box"
  • Replaced "dll" names with existing menu strings.
  • Included Russian translation.

Added in trunk 4832.

I'm tempted to remove it from the autobuilt readme and just make that section say "see camnotes.txt for camera specific notes". Then we wouldn't need to build the readme any more either.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Added in trunk 4832.

Thanks. I'll update CHIMP as soon as it's merged.

The problem is that some cameras have quite useless notes. When those are part of the readme they don't look that bad ;)

This is meant for CHIMP to read the module names directly from the .flt files.

Patch to localize the remaining File Browser strings.

Edit: Removed, see updated patch below.

Merged to 1.4

Yes. FWIW, this is an area where non-developers could make a significant contribution, updating each one to at least note camera specifics like the default alt button, features defined in platform_camera.h and a link to the development thread.

Maybe add those remarks to camnotes.txt during build?

Patch to localize the remaining File Browser strings.

This replaces the previously posted one, since the "Compute hash" submenu is no longer relevant.

Done.
+ fw 120f.
Added now that 120f dump has been posted.

Note bin_comp_fix.h should not be needed any more. If you can confirm that builds without this still boot OK, let me know. The sig finder generates 0xfff20040 as the PID address while the current bin_compat_fix.h uses 0xfdf20040, but if it's like other cameras either should work.
