Profile Designer

    Profile Designer 1.9.4beta is out.

    Bugfix:
    - Now you can change the manual setting paramters by the little arrows in the input field (however, they are worked by the keyboard arrows also :) )


    Sadly, we're stopped supporting Firefox. We decided this after seeing the poor javascript performance with (actualy not) too much canvas element. As long as we are in Beta stage, we want to focus on features, and performance optimizations. After we're going to final 1.0, we are going to investigate the options to open the PD for other browsers. At the meantime the PD will work with Chrome and Safari.

    Next update:
    The alignment guides are coming.

    first:

    I can delete a profile from de Profile Designer on my laptop, but the profile can I not delete from my app on my tablet.

    What can I do to delete the profiles from my tablet.

    second:

    I don't understand the explionation of the Points and Values in the properties of a control item. How can I see the results of the different values in the property.

    I use Android on my tablet.

     

    For the rest, the SBrick works wunderful.

    Meawhile I found this odd effect just happens when you play with the 'size width' of the joystick controls. This specifically is working fine with 'size height' and 'orientation degree'.

    The effect becomes worse (more odd layers) as you keep changing the width (more noticeable if joystick is rotated to a certain extent).

    Hi Zsolt,

    I just provided links to the images in the original pos, which hopefully are accessible to everyone. It is quicker and easier for me at this point.

    Don't really understand why the embeded images are not showing up to you, but nevermind. :)

    Hope these links work for you. Copy the whole link and paste in your browser. Somehow the forum is not forming the hyperlink correctly.

     

    Best!

    [/blockquote]

    Thank you! Wow! The second one looks like really-really strange... :)

    I've tested it and it is now possible to handle coordinates via manual settings. :)

    I must admit I didn't realize about the third tab in first place, but after coming back to this forum I understood how it works.

     

    Althoguh I found some new problems. ;)

     

    1) Realize from the image below, there is a button instance, although it does not appear in the layers list.

     

    2) Altough other parameters/controls seem to work fine, changing the joystick dimensions causes a total interface collapse (see image below). After this point it is not possible to save the profile anymore. It enters into an endless loop. We can return to the home screen, but loosing the changes made.

     

    Have a good bug fixing! ;)

    Can you repost these images via imgur or cloudApp? The links are borken. :(

    It's not that simple, but we are working on something greater than just that. :)

    Once you create a profile and save it how long does it take to show up on your mobile? I am using both a samsung galaxy S4 and S5 and even a Tab 10.1.

    After you logged in on your device, it should be there after the loading.

    Manual settings is out now!

    You can find a third panel in every control element's settings, there you can see, and change also every numeric parameter (include X/Y coords, width, height, etc). The changes are presented on the fly.

    Be warned, your hands are free in that panel, so you can also spoil your profile. We're also working on the validation part, in the meantime, watch out. :)

    Too bad the Android app won't handle cordinates correctly ! I still have position issues, oval circles and rectangle squares :(

    How can I rotate a slider to 90 degres?

    I can not set the directly the value in the box and when I use the slider I can only set -93 -85 87 or 95

    Please see my previous post about the manual settings part. It's out now.

    That's an app bug, and what i'm know currently, it has nothing to do with the PD. The android developers are working on it, but please report it here: https://social.sbrick.com/forums/topic/29/sbrick-android-app

    [/blockquote]

     

    For me the problem is solved with 1.9.2beta by setting manually the values

     

    Thank you

    Any plans on sync'ing values between two controls?

    If a slider with non-return-to-zero also have a 'Stop' button, the slider keeps the value and does not return to zero.

    Yes we plan with this functionality.

    Getting better. I managed to tweak my profile with custom items, but still some issues. Bugs summary:

     

    - Sliders position is not exactly what is defined in the PD (already reported)

    - Round items (such as the close button) are displayed as ovals (already reported). Managed to use a custom square buttom that looks good, although probably rectangular now.

    - Tried to use square sliders buttons. All messed up once displayed, will try plain jpgs instead of the fancy alpha-channel png I have used.

    - Tried to set a min and max value to the steering slider, still works from -1 to +1.

    - Pixelized pictures. Probably OK on a phone, but annoying on a tablet.

    - My background's background is supposed to be grey, it is displayed as green-grey

     

    Suggestion : implement log and inverted log profiles for the sliders. Linear is not adapted to accelaration control, I think it would help a lot and would make driving easier and more natural.

    All in all, it works and I'm globally happy, but setting up the beast is a real assault course ;)

    Sadly, all of these are android bugs. Do you reported these bugs into the android app topic too?

    Hi! ... 

    I've been making some Profiles with the SBrick designer, but I can't find the correct screen ratio for my samsung galaxy S5... Do any of you know what screen ratio the Samsung Galaxy S5 has :P :P :P .... 

    [/blockquote]

     

    I believe it should be 16:9, which is equal to 1920:1080.
