Any idea when this will be added? I noticed others have suggested something similar. I don’t think it will be that hard to add that functionality. I would be satisfied if just the screen config files can be re-loaded at a given interval. This way all we need to do is format the data the same way the screen config files are.
Ok, well ive been thinking about text file support for a while but cant work out the best way to implement it.
I cant put text file names inside ~tags~ as it woiuld make them too long.
I guess i could allow the setup of say 10 text files in the settings window... but then how do i get the text from the file?
Hmmm... i guess i could make the ~tag~ represent which file and then which line number to read.
To me making 10 text file places in the setup will be more difficult. I think if you have 1 setting for the base directory. This way all the text files have to be in a given spot. Better yet don’t give a choice where the files can be. Just make them live in \program files\CrystalControl\txt\.
This way the tags will be short and simple:
I would make the text routine simple. Read in the first line of the file. Make the files read in every 30 seconds or have it selectable. Realistically you don’t want to be loading a file every second.
Like I said in my other post. I will be happy with any file reading, even re-reading the .csc files.
I think that would be fine. I would be happy with that
CC is the best LCD software I tried. LCD Smartie is ok but not as stable. I prefer the setup that CC uses. It is simple. The only thing I thought CC was lacking was reading a line from a file. so if the logic is easer to do 10 files that’s cool Actually all I would need is one file and use the one file with all the lines I would need
