Call for testers

Hi,
As previously announced, I’m working on an All-in-one Windows 7 DVD.
As work is going well, I wanted to start calling for some testers. I’m near a first beta, so the RC will come also very soon.

I don’t know yet how many people will be able to try this before the official release, but I’m calling for some help already.

If you’re interested and available, please post a comment with:
– your name
– your mail (private, I’m the only one to see it)
– your current OS : win7 or other ? do you plan on testing a free install or updating your current system (if you already have win7) ?
– your configuration (be as precise as possible: CPU, HDD, RAM, Graphic Card, Screen resolution, … )
– your multitouch hardware: setup, capabilities, screen size

THIS WILL BE A x64 RC, SO ONLY PEOPLE WITH SUCH CAPABLE SYSTEM CAN APPLY.

I will get back to all the lucky choosen one as soon as the RC is ready.
Thank for your help!
Cya.

VIP Goodies and public release plans {UPDATE}

Hi,
The VIP Section hosts now a mod of CCV 1.3 with dual TUIO port support and TUIO + FLASH mode. This mod combined with the modified Windows 7 driver available also in the VIP Section allows you to use Windows 7, flash apps and tuio apps at the same time.
I will realease soon a fixed version of the Service Driver so you won’t need to launch anything ever to get touch support on Windows 7. {UPDATE – RELEASED FOR VIP}

Those goodies will probably be available for the public in July, definitly in August, when my exams are done and after I update my site for an easier use and a better design…

Here is also a little teasing :
I’ll be releasing this summer two majors things.
– a Multitouch Suite with all needed tools to get started (CCV, Driver, demo apps) and in option some other tools.
– a customized Windows 7 DVD ISO with a multitouch ready OS (plug-and-play system).

Cheers.

VIP Section for Donators

Hi,
Some may have notice the new link on the right panel of the blog redirecting to a password protected page.
All past and futur donators will recieve an invite code to have access to this section and get some of my projects before their official release. I will post in this section all my current projects that are usable but not fully tested yet… so they can be a little bit unstable or not fully work at first…
Don’t worry, all software in this section will be posted when the right time has come, but if you can’t wait and want to get some of my goodies before everyone else, or just get involve in my work, just donate and you’ll get access…
I must approve the donation before the invite code is sent so it may take 24h before you recieve the code… but I do all I can to make this as fast as possible…

Enoy!

Teasing UPDATE : MORE

Hi,
Here is a quick post because I don’t have time to do more, but I didn’t want all my beloved readers to be helpless without any news from me…

I don’t have time right now because of exams but I wanted to tell you what was planned for the summer…

Here are some surprises I will unveile this summer :
– CCV 1.3 mod with dual TUIO port broadcasting and all-in-on com mode (dual tuio + flash, dual tuio + flash +binary).
– CCV 1.3 with broadcasting features from previous mod, and fiducials capabilities.
– Windows 7 Driver with changed input port to get TUIO apps working while using the driver. This combined with the CCV 1.3 Fiducials let us use the driver with fiducials at the same time.
– Windows 7 Service Driver fixed (for me it doesn’t run automaticly on start up without the fix) : automatic launch will be available, no need for anything to launch after driver and service install are complete.

I hope you can wait until this summer… 😉

If you want to support my work, fell free to donate with the Paypal tool at the right of the screen, everything will go for MT developments.

Have a nice day !
