Title: About UniCatcher WPS needed patches?
Post by: NightCat on October 16, 2006, 05:28:59 PM
I want to use UniCatcher WPS (with album art showing).
It says that I should use:
Album Art patch v.3.3 or more
Scrolling Margins Patch
WPS Extensions: Progress Bar Y coord patch (optional)
EQ WPS tags patch v.1.0 or more

But this versions doesn't work with current cvs.
(I tried to patch but it does not build after it...)
So what will be the better way to solv this problem?
Wich patches to choose?
Please, help.

Moders! Please move it to "WPS and customisation"... Sorry, but I write to wrong board...

Yes.. album art patch v3.3 is out of date... but this is why it says "or more" ;)

You don't need the WPS Extensions: Progress Bar Y coord patch, because this is optional.

Just use the latest versions of these patches (scroll down to the latest comments):

1. Album Art (http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/3045)
2. Scrolling Margins (http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/2954)
3. EQ WPS tags (http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/4780)

Notice though that the latest album art patch has changed and now it can resize the album art. To do that it requires this patch, too:

4. BMP resize patch (http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/5697)

So you just need these 4 patches. Due to the album art change, though, the syntax has changed, too. So for the wps to work properly with album art, here's what to do:

A. Open the UniCatcher.wps file with a text editor
B. Change "%C|5|28|100|100" to %Cl|5|28|s100|s100|
C. Add "%C" at the end of the wps code and save the changes

Unfortunately, Album Art is not commited to CVS yet, so nothing is standard. Things may change again in the future, but anyway, this is what you need for now.

Cheers!
