Re: 43S News

Hi, wow, thanks for this tempting recipe concerning flashing a DM42 to house the 43S firmware - it makes one hungry for more ;) I did put it on the list of my mini projects for the summer holidays to modify my dear trusty DM42β. Meanwhile experimenting with the "WP 43S simulator" on a Win10 machine ...

Cheers !

Re: Dutch Lion

In principle, it would be very nice to see different colours at the first glance in these special 1bit bmp files. +1 Probably, this feat could be achieved by assigning different dithering patterns to these different colours. If someone knows an easy and not time consuming way, I would appreciate any...

Re: Maybe a hp41 OFFIMG ?

The OFFIMG of an HP41cx with white overlay looks great ! +1 Anecdote : It reminded me by chance of the HP 41 with bright overlay bought by the former East German national airline "Interflug" at the end of the 80s. They were used by the navigator & pilot to compensate or enhance shortcomings of the a...

Re: Dutch Lion

Terrific, your version looks much better on the DM42's display. Thanks for your effort ! Inkscape instead of Libre Office Draw for SVG import might be a good idea ... ;) Still working on two coat of arms Lions from nearby. The easterly one was reinstated a few decades ago, but is in fact the older o...

Re: Differences between the initial OFFIMG sets of the DM42β, DM42 & DM41X ?

Hi! Interesting, these eight OFFIMG pictures seem to have been added at the DM41β: binary.bmp | blank.bmp | kontiki1.bmp | numbers.bmp | numbers2.bmp | prague.bmp | tiger.bmp | wasserkirche.bmp | Are they available at the Swissmicros site or could you provide the diff, if time permits, please ?

Re: Dutch Lion

Hi, here comes the Red Dragon of Wales as a first try: https://www.magentacloud.de/api/sharelink/download?id=C3gmkzsX Opened a vector file SVG with Libre Office Draw, exported it as bitmap and reduced its colour to 1-bit with PaintshopPro 7.04 (ctrl-shift-1) running Ubuntu (wine). At the moment the ...

Differences between the initial OFFIMG sets of the DM42β, DM42 & DM41X ?

Hi, I just wondered: are there any differences between the initial OFFIMG sets of the DM42β, DM42 & DM41Xβ ? These 19 bitmaps were included with my DM42β: https://www.magentacloud.de/api/sharelink/download?id=LZgGkehS "space.bmp" showing probably one of the leading characters in the soviet film adap...
