Nokia N96 & Samsung i8510 Compatibility

October 31, 2008 - 11 Responses

Sorry It looks like both the N96 and Samung i8510 both have different versions of the accelerometer API, this means at the moment light sabre won’t work on either of these phones.

However a version for the i8510 is in the pipe line and I’ll post it when it’s working.

I don’t have access to an N96 but an accomplice may be able to help me we’ll see what happens…

Firware upgrade N95 V21

March 28, 2008 - 14 Responses

After you have upgraded your firmware and restored your phone you will need to:

o Uninstall Light Saber

o Uninstall Accelerometer (if there)

o Reinstall Accelerometer

o Reinstall Light Saber

o Re-start phone for good luck.
I’ve No idea why the restore after upgrade doesn’t work I suspect if doesn’t restore the Accelerometer DLL that light saber relies on.
For other problems please check out the FAQ.

Ideas for V1.5 and beyond….

December 12, 2007 - 13 Responses

Some ideas for next versions I’m considering:

  • Remove long clash sample
  • Add vibration support ( low level constanst for hum and shock for hit)
  • Add new Dialog to allow setting sensitivity of swings and hits
  • Add new Dialog to allow fine tuning of volume
  • Add new Dialog to allow setting of lots of different sabre colours
  • Save settings ( sensitivity, volume, sabre colour)
  • Implement a software audio mixer to allow sabre hum to play at the same time as the swing.

Any others ? or just leave it and stop releasing stupid updates πŸ™‚
