Hi, three things:

i always forget that overrides are in effect, so i suggest changing the color of the override info text in osd to the warning color. this way i dont shoot with 65 secs anymore when i want to take a "normal" picture. i already made the code changes, just need your general approvement. maybe an extra option on "enable warning color for overrides"?

2nd thing: right now OSD of chdk is always shown in playback and rec mode (if osd is enabled). i want to add a new toggle "don't show in playback". that should be an easy task, havent done it yet though as it requires changing lots of code.

3rd thing:
when i have multiple overrides in effect, sometimes i want to disable them as fast as possible. there should be a menu entry like "clear all overrides" or "temporarily disengage". maybe with a shortcut?

what do you think, all suggestions are easy to implement and i'm willing to do it.

haha, good question, i bet future canon cams will have a keyboard on board :D
maybe we can simulate a keyboard via usb-power-morse-code ;) would make typing quiete hawkings-esque :D

by the way i dont even know why the OSD colors in playback mode are different from the ones in rec mode. maybe i will find out, maybe it even was on purpose?

1. done, easy (color of overrides)
2. not touched yet (osd not showing in playback, will be most of the changes)
3. prepared everything.

as to three:
i want to add a menu entry in the override menu, directly on top that reads "disable ALL overrides". mind you, i don't CLEAR the overrides (that could easily be done by rebooting camera). i will just add checks like "if tv override is enabled and NOT disablealloverrides is checked DO tv override". this way you could actually uncheck the "clear overrides on start" radio button - so you wont lose your specific settings in future (i for example barely use the overrides for things other than aperture & iso, so i could leave them engaged all the time, BUT also have "disable all overrides" checked). i hope my point comes across.
should i write a "warning" in case all overrides are disabled (same place as the actual overrides would be on osd)? i'm a bit unsure about that.
anyways, finding out the places in code where my checks can be added is timeconsuming and especially in need of a big screen & cpu power which i lack both :D will try my best though.
thanks for input, as always you are so kind to me :)

next question: should i also disable bracketing in continous mode & autoiso settings? i will leave it to the "normal overrides" for now.

edit: attached testbuild with new option to choose color for overrides (including bracketing & autoiso ones) and disable overrides.

Mmmmmm! posted at Germany's 21:37

It was already April 1st in Siberia, India, Japan etc. May be the prank is intended for them.

Anyways, I'll take my chances. I just hope we don't need an antivirus program for CHDK in the future.

I guess so. Once I was continuous bracketing a landscape and a squirrel jumped a few meters from me. I would love to have this override shortcut back then.
