The above post got me thinking... I would also like to see the 128x64 cabbiev2 port more "complete" as there are also some possible future targets (like the ifp or the Logik Dax) which would have such a screen as main screen. Since viewports there is no need to place everything line wise and so I came up with the following two:
These are just mockups with the use of the 112x64 graphics (already slightly edited) but you'll get the idea. I think it is possible to use the complete screen up to the border of what is seen in the sim because on monochrome/greyscale displays you have some "spacing" through the display, the used area is not starting right at the border of the casing. This is what the slightly darker border around the actual screen should show in the mockup. What do you think - and which one of the two would be nicer? (I prefer the right variant a tad bit but like to know other opinions before investing more time.)
And my other question/suggestion was related to showing remote hold. As said earlier in the thread I'd like a way to see this information here's my idea, taking the biggest graphics:
That is from top: main hold, no hold, remote hold (only) and both parts on hold. This way nothing would change for those who don't use the remote. Of course this would need adapting to smaller screens and other colour depths but I'd try, maybe it needs character on the very small screens though.
Please tell me what you think.
