Free42 Skins (based on DM42/HP41 fotos)

Post by Peet »

I am a creature of habit so I took photos of my DM42 and my HP-41CV to make Free42 skins.
Not perfect, rather quick and dirty, but maybe sombody is interestet.

Edit: replaced File - DM42r.layout did not fit to the gif

Thanks for sharing. The screen, however, is a bit smaller than expected. Reasons?

I don't know if it would have been possible to use more than two lines with free42. So I reduced the height from 4 to 2 lines.

Ok. I thought there were some skins in Thomas' toolbox looking like a DM42 with full screen, but may be wrong memory.

Hi :) For information I made a Free42 skin some times ago:
Some highlights:
  • Several resolutions available, up to high resolution (dm42_12 on Github) that looks really nice on smartphones.
  • The top row can be used to navigate menus, the second row functions are mapped directly and do not require "TOP.FCN", even when a menu is displayed (like the real DM42).
  • Visual feedback on keypresses
Spoiler:
