ZuPa, ZuPa, ZuPaPlayaaaahhh

Tried a little bit more the ZuPaPlayer on ARM, seems the Zune on ARM is not on the same status as i386. A List event fired on i386, seems never fire on ARM, which makes it impossible to move songs in the list. Because I compiled the libmikmod myself, I increased the buffer for the AHI mikmod module (on i386 AROS I had some stutter problems). It works but now the pause button needs nearly 500 ms before it really stops. Not so nice, so I edited the AHI driver again a little bit and calculate the Buffersize dynamically from the frequency to cover 120 ms (got the idea from the Windows driver). Works rather nicely. So I made a release for ARM-AROS of ZuPaPlayer 0.2

ZuPaPlayer V0.1

Posted by ALB42 on 19. Oktober 201610 Comments

Added a settings window to ZuPaPlayer, the most things are working already, at least what I need 😛 hotkeys and menu is not finished but the rest works already very nice. Maybe I should check some other MUI applications how Hotkeys are made MUI/Zune style. I’m still not very satisfied with mikmod, maybe it would worth a try on modplug. Nevertheless if someone is interested here is the current state. It’s early version so it is not complete maybe crash or strange behavior.

Worked a little bit more with GPS. At Aros-Exec, someone was so kind to test and other GPS with the program seems he also found one which works.
I put all things together and added some more debug output. In principle its still only a tool to learn how to operate GPS devices to build to Mapparium later. But in fact it’s also a nice little tool to play with. The record track function was so easy to implement so it could be a more lightweight tool to record Tracks, instead of the big Mapparium. It even works on Amiga without GFX-card (unlike Mapparium).
GPSTool-MOS
It got an own page, on the Mapparium page it would be too messy. But I don’t think they will be much updates on the little program, maybe later I will clean up a bit and put the source to github.

Mapparium 0.6

Posted by ALB42 on 10. Juli 2016No Comments

A new Mapparium release bring the image position showing to public including some AREXX commandos for it. But there are more changes. Finally I added a Menu for the Main Window. There are some problems with the menu on MorphOS, and I want to prevent bug announcement about this. I should really again try to find a clue about it. Besides this added overall statistics.

Changes
  • ADD: Image List with EXIF position Data
  • ADD: Image preview
  • ADD: AREXX commands for Add images to imagelist
  • ADD: Menu for Main window and ImageList
  • ADD: Active Route color
  • ADD: Overall statistics
  • FIX: Color settings

Mapparium 0.5

Posted by ALB42 on 27. Juni 2016No Comments

The new Mapparium has some basic route calculation support. I found two usable services, YOUR and OpenLS. Both have positive and negative sides, YOUR is much more reliable but only support the orders as text without coordinates where the direction order is active. OpenLS had on my tests some speed issues, sometimes very slow, even 1 day offline as it seems, but it supplies orders also with position informations.

Changes
  • FIX: AROS invisible search text
  • ADD: Routing calculation via YOUR or OpenLS
  • FIX: better Prefs window
  • ADD: Save/load routes from GPX
  • CHG: Open TrackView or RouteView on Show/Edit Button
  • CHG: Moved Track title edit into TrackView
  • ADD: Context sensitive Add Button
  • ADD: Possibility to hide/show tracks/route
  • FIX: Faster drawing for 68k Amiga

Mapparium 0.4

New Version of Mapparium for all Amiga systems.
Most important changes are, AREXX Port (not available on AROS, due to Zune restriction), Find by IP, Check position, localized search and support for Garmin FIT data. Have fun for me it works already better than my other route inspector programs, I also use it on Linux as my default. I just notice when adding many routes it becomes a litte messy, because the start of every route is the same, maybe I need an option to hide routes from the view.

Changes:

  • ADD: Clear HD Cache by Button in Prefs to a certain zoom level
  • ADD: Find current position (by ip)
  • ADD: Search position by ip (type: ip:x.x.x.x to search)
  • ADD: Get address for current position
  • ADD: Zoom in by double mouse click
  • ADD: AREXX port with commands “goto” and “addwaypoint”
  • ADD: Loading of Garmin FIT data
  • ADD: Other color for active track
  • FIX: Umlauts fix in search header
  • FIX: Search by Return press in search box

Strange problem appeared with Mapparium on AmigaOS4, all texts are invisible. The funny thing: on my UAE and the OS4 computer at Amiga meeting it was working, difficult to debug. But thanks to some guys at amiga.org I was able to solve it. First I thought it was some Font issue but then I found an informations about color setting in AmigaOS4 and that the given color also contains an alpha value and this was of course always zero for my setting now. MorphOS/AROS/Amiga does not need there a value. And after a failed try (I missed one call) I got a positive feedback from Amiga.org.

 

Besides this I fixed some little things and implemented Garmin tcx reading (also a xml format but seems only for tracks). Because of this I decided to make a new release for all platforms not only for AmigaOS4 and called it 0.3.

 

Mapparium 0.3

OpenStreetMap viewer for all Amiga systems.

0.3

  • FIX: Invisible texts on OS4
  • FIX: Go offline if internet is down
  • FIX: Start folder for load/save dialogs
  • FIX: Filter for dialogs
  • FIX: Version informations
  • ADD: Load tracks from Garmin TCX files
  • ADD: Set size of middle marker
  • ADD: Support for geo: URIs
  • ADD: DblClick to lower panel copies middle position to clipboard as geo: URI

Virtual Lazarus v2

Posted by ALB42 on 16. Mai 2016No Comments

New Version for the Virtual Lazarus crosscompiler, some crashes with mouse events (OnClick, OnMove, OnEnter, OnLeave), Redrawing and resizing problems and of course the biggest change adding support AmigaOS4 (PowerPC). I removed some not needed files and installations, so the download is much smaller this time.
 
Changes in short:

  • FIX: Redraw problems on AmigaOS3
  • FIX: Size problems
  • FIX: Mouse event crashes
  • ADD: Support for AmigaOS4
  • CHG: Striped image from unneeded things, reduced download size

 

Download the new Virtual Lazarus crosscompile setup (1.2 Gb)
 

 

I am thinking how to make an online updater, in principle not so difficult with a script, svn update from repository, recompile/install all compilers/crosscompilers, update lazarus repository, recompile and install lazarus, done.
