a few enhancements, bugfixes - done

latest edit: some of things suggested in this thread got coded in this thread: remaining video time,overrides-cusomizations,no-raw@video,just _random_ stuff :D

edit: jump directly to : a few enhancements, bugfixes

Hi,

in this build i did the following:

- added wontollas diskspace icon (see Remaining RAW+JPG shots + filespace icon/text- done :D)
- added possibility to choose between horizontal or vertical spacebar
- added possibility to choose between three sizes of spacebar (1/4, 1/2 or full screen width/height)
- added possibility to choose between OSD clock with & without seconds (might come in handy if you want to make a shot at an EXACT moment)
- followed vit40's suggestion: in record mode, when you half-press shootbutton, now most icons (battery,filespace,raw status...) disappear - to maximize preview area
[- s3is (and other cameras which have seperate videobutton): in video mode, save_raw is disabled, this way you can shoot video and take pictures without interrupting video - this is untested, as i dont own an s3is. should work though.] - feature not working, implementation on hold!
- updated german.lng file



build for s3is ownsers (barney? :D) attached

built against #313.
no errors during compilation.
as always: ugly code. please comment & make suggestions, report bugs and whatnot.
as you can see in my build #, it took me some time to figure everything out ;)

edit: added zshare download link for archive of compiled binaries. man, everytime i upload something to zshare i feel like an old man on modem :D sorry for the generic threadtitle and archive filename, it's already late in germany and i couldnt think of any other.
edit #2: yes, if betatests are successful, i hope this is gonna be added to official trunk.

Hi, this is nice feature.
- followed vit40's suggestion: in record mode, when you half-press shootbutton, now most icons (battery,filespace,raw status...) disappear - to maximize preview area
I would propose to keep battery info on the screen in case it is in red state.
Just imagine that your batteries are VERY low and you need to take at least 1 or 2 photos.
In this case battery info seems useful (for me) even if shootbutton is half-pressed.

good idea, same applies to the raw counter :)

@kalli: yes you are right, the german file is missing. will attach it later.

thanks for your responses so far.

Great stuff Phox!.
Even the most expensive DSLR camera doesn't give you all these options. I have a DSLR user friend who just can't believe it when I talk about CHDK.

The SD Card icon is cool, but ... mine doesn't do anything.
Darn! It worked in my S3 and Phox's code looks fine. I'll try to find the problem tonight.

and someone lost a whole event when they inadvertently left RAW turned on too and shot a frame at the beginning of the video.
Yes, Her Majesty the Queen was very disappointed when she learned about my failure to record her reception parade. But I'll let her know PhyrePhox is working day and night so it will never happen again.

BTW Phox, your name and avatar remind me a Super Nintendo game which made a breakthrough in 3D graphics a long time ago. StarFox. Is it inspired on that game or I'm getting old and tend to remember the good old days more often?

working day and night... actually thats true, but during the day i work for my company ;)

wow, you are the first one to see the resemblance, most people think i'm just a fanboy of the browser firefox and just write it in a fancy way :D actually i had this name way before the browser. it's inspired by a character in a book by neal stephenson, though my writing of it is unique (the placing of the capital letters). the icon/avatar is indeed from the game starfox, i like it because it is small and simple, i have it everywhere :D

well, i guess the problem will be solved in no time, as wontolla also owns the s3is. maybe he will also find out more regarding the video+raw issue.
