TodayPlus VGA for Windows Mobile 2003 SE
« on: June 03, 2004, 05:59:31 PM »
Hi there,

I'm a Toshiba E800 owner, wich have a VGA screen (480x640). This PDA is equiped with Windows Mobile 2003SE. The old VGA version (for using with Resfix or MyVGA) doesn't work anymore with this OS.
So, I modified the skin, the executable, the dll and resized a new set of icons.

I think this version is only working on a Toshiba E800/E805 with Windows Mobile 2003 SE. Don't try to install on other PDA.

The package include all necessary files and a instruction file. But all it's in french. However, the installation is exactly the same as the other versions, except you should replace the original "TodayPlus.exe" and "TodayPlus.dll" with the modified version.

I hope you will like this package.

Ivan from Geneva.

I have the e800 with SE and would like to give your skin a try.  Where can I download it from?

Will the T+ exe and the dll also work with a non VGA machine in landscape SE mode? I'm curious because I have a Ipaq 2200 and Blazingwolf has posted that the graphics are messed up with T+ in landscape mode.

You should be able to make a skin that can use the landscape mode. The graphics are messed up for me,I think, because I am using a VGA screened Pocket PC. I am not at all sure what the impact on a non-VGA screened device is.  The biggest problem with what we have now is that TodayPlus does not do on the fly orientation changes. By that I mean you will need to have 2 skins to be able to rotate the screen.

Perhaps someone with the new Dell machine can test this and see if it will work.

HighTymes on the Aximsite mentioned he had TP and the X30, I am waiting for his response regarding Landscape mode.

Actually that's not unusual. WisBar Advance also requires two separate skins, one for portrait and the other for landscape mode. My question is the icons - if they show up ok in landscape mode then designing the skin itself should not be all that hard (well I guess if you are using a lot of frames and stuff like Lightman and LordTwisted, then the graphics will have to be redone).

The link for the download is only downloading a 0 byte file.  Any ideas on how I can get it?  Could you post the link here?

This is what TP plus looks like on my Axim X30 in landscape mode. Just installed the new ROM update for my X30 yesterday so i got some updating to do :)

HighTymes - Looks good! Of course I won't have a problem with SE now that HP has decided not to offer an upgrade to current Ipaq owners  :(

You might want to check out the package for the Dash skin in another thread in this forum. I've tweaked the icons for the system information so they have a nicer appearance than the ones you are using. You can substitute them from the Dash images folder into the one you are using.
