Hijack again maybe? i think it would be neat to see a random image pan, similar to hwo the flancedace was setup in an earlier version of hijack.

This would be cool, I agree. I have several different images I would like to cycle for Image Pan.

I have no more influence on the feature set than anyone else on the alpha team. I've been shot down more often than you know.

This one should be easy... but I'd like one of a generic (Detroit preferably!) overhead map! It would be cool to have it zig and zag around the surface of the map as I drive! Like a pseudo navigation system. Would be super cool if Toby could have a little cross hair float around independantly too! Other maps like NYC, London etc would rock. Maybe we could make a Cambridge one too.

(Is there a "how to" on installed the editor? I understand the grey scale thing, and have made plenty of bootlogos, but I've never played with RAW files).

A map scan is a cool idea for an image pan visual, that would be fun. I'll have to try that sometime.

Instructions on creating the image pan visual are here.

Thx Tony.

I'm running into a little problem.. (I hope it is little). I saved an escher.raw file with the editor, but it saved it as escher.RAW instead of escher.raw. I uploaded it fine. Now, when I tried to view it, the player hung and exited to the shell prompt. I re-booted. Now, it keeps rebooting and rebooting upon loading the visual (says file not found).... Is there anyway to get it to NOT boot to the visual so that I can have time to hit "q" and rename the .RAW into a .raw?

Why did the editor save as RAW and not .raw? Is it my Win2k?

Well that was scarey! My empeg kept rebooting over and over! I could get into HiJack, and tried fooling with the Restore Visuals settting to see if I could make the unit NOT want to load Image Pan, but that wouldn't work. So, I kept hitting "q" over and over but that didn't work. What finally DID work was a few "ctrl-c"'s. That got me to the shell prompt. I then replaced the escher.RAW with escher.raw (too bad I don't know the rename command).

Anyway, it is very cool! I've attached the Detroit image pan. I would like to inverse the white and black so ou don't see scan lines, but doing a simple "negative" will also invert the greys... Anyone know a simple fix?

Doing a simple "negative" effect on the image worked! (And this time I remembered to crop out the "Mapquest" logo). Attached is the white on black Detroit Map image pan.

As you've already figured out, the Linux file system is case-sensitive.

I'll emphasize that text in the FAQ, thanks.

Tony, while you are at it, could you put a warning that the "rwm" command can take several minutes? Back in the 1.02 days, I didn't know that and thought my player had locked up. I unplugged it and found out much later that I had to do a fskdsk to fix it.

EDIT: Damn I'm having fun with this! I have a few more "pans" and would love a gallery. On a side note, is this msg a bad thing?

It's not in the FAQ because I keep assuming they're going to remove that message from the next beta, and I also keep assuming that the next beta will be soon.

Tony, while you are at it, could you put a warning that the "rwm" command can take several minutes

There's a thread somewhere about adding a "nocheck" parameter to the rwm
script (it's a plain text file, not a binary) so that it doesn't do the check unneccessary.
Here's a post about exactly how to do it.

Heh, didn't notice...

Time to do the edit then?

FWIW, I've had the change for quite a while now, without any trouble...

Thanks Bitt.

Would the sytax be:

mv escher.RAW escher.raw

?
