Rules relaxed

Library of images to use as OFFIMG screens on the DM41X and DM42
Forum rules
Do you have a creative streak? Post your OFFIMG photos here.

Images MUST be in Windows-NT .bmp format at a resolution of 400x240 pixels and 1-bit colour depth or they will not be displayed by the DM42. Images that do not meet this requirement will be removed from the forum :)

Rules relaxed

Post by grsbanks » Tue Jan 29, 2019 4:01 pm

I've relaxed the rules for this forum.

The point has been made that a screen image in 1-bit-depth bitmap hardly uses any space, and it's true (only about 12KB per image), so you can upload your images as attachments now. I've also gone into the forum settings so that it actually allows .bmp files now. If I've got my settings right, you should see my OFFIMG attached to this post...

I’ll be keeping this one ONLY in my DM41X for a while ;) or until better quality one appears.
For another version please see BMP image below...

Thanks, not as good as it could be, but does the job. I'm sure I've seen this diagram printed in a manual somewhere and that would be a lot better alternative.

Cheers

The .jpg image you posted above does not convert well to .bmp (using MS Paint), the image is illegible.

Do you have a .bmp version you can post here?

The other idea is to have your DM41L by you and look at its back to get this picture.

But, there is a but, you need to have a DM41L ;)

I think the good option would be to print this pic on the back of the DM41X for next production batches.

I keep my 41CL (orig. CV) & DM41X together, so I can use the back of the first :)

Fantastic as the DM41X is — and I do believe that — it doesn't have the feel of the original, of course.
