N.A.N.Y. Challenge 2007 / Re: Volt - v0.0.6 - December 17, 2006

Hi skwire,

Thanks for your reply (especially considering the age of this thread!).

Your new OSD files work great! You didn't mention it, but it's also necessary to make this setting for it to work:

Right-click the system tray icon > Options > select the "OSD - Enable" checkbox > OK

This may seem obvious. But when I saw that a color was already selected in your "OSD" submenu, I didn't understand why no OSD appeared. (And I'm a technical writer—I'm supposed to be good at this stuff!)

May I make a suggestion? When you add the OSD folder to your normal install, I'd enable OSD by default. Then you could add a "Disabled" item to your OSD submenu, which the user could select if they didn't want the OSD. And of course the OSD submenu and your Options > "Enabled" checkbox would always have the same setting.

It baffles me why Microsoft didn't include a more visible volume display. And Volt is the only one I could find that works properly (set to XP Compatibility Mode). So thanks again! Cheers, Andy

Hi guys,

Just thought I'd mention that I had to use Windows XP Compatibility Mode to get Volt (1.0.1 build 3) to work with Windows 7. Also:

...For the next release, I have implemented a simple OSD per jbeek's request.  Here's a screenshot... It's bitmap based, so it's easy to make your own customised OSD bar.

That was nearly four years ago. Do you still plan to release a new version? The graphic OSD would be useful. (When I saw the OSD composed of text characters, I assumed it was just more Win 7 incompatibility... It is nostalgic, though!)

Thanks. I'd rather update DLLs than eat.

Mobysaurus / The other Mobysaurus?

Maybe someone's already asked about this, but:

What's the difference between this Mobysaurus (2007, v1.0.55) and the other Mobysaurus (2006, v2.3)?

They look different. The other Mobysaurus's setup file is 5 times bigger than this one. Is one a fork of the other? Is this explained anywhere here on the site? If not, shouldn't it be?

Thanks, Ander
