Re: [DIY] Jack Sparrow's Compass (Work in Progress)

Work on the Compass of Destiny continues, and I'm beginning to think I need to expand my material options. For example, can you even tell what this item is supposed to be? image.png If you squint your eyes, you might be able to tell it is part of a compass plate, with numbers running around the edge...

Re: [DIY] Jack Sparrow's Compass (Work in Progress)

For those that know me, it should come as no surprise that I'm a huge fan of Adam Savage, of Mythbuster's fame. Adam has a YouTube channel on which he shares awesome tips, cool props, and "One Day Builds" that rarely take just one day. Adam used to work at ILM creating props for some of your favorit...

[DIY] Jack Sparrow's Compass (Work in Progress)

Jack Sparrow's Compass Recently I was browsing Thingiverse for movie props and came across Jack Sparrow's compass from Pirates of the Caribbean. In case you don't recall, this is the compass that points towards what the owner most desires, and not true north. image.png While I've long wanted to rec...

Re: [Feature Request] movie mode only setting

Currently this is not an option, sorry. I have it on my todo list to rework the external links, to expand it to a dedicated panel, and reserve the current navigation panel for jumping between various CMC functions - movies, music, and new sections like photos and videos. I'm not exactly sure when I ...

Re: Considering New App - Hotkey Monitor

With the MCE remote receiver I would have it stop responding a lot. Most of the time I would just reboot to fix it. A real pain. Sometimes the Inteset stops too, but it's pretty rare. With it being internal, a manual reboot is the only solution. Has only happened maybe once in the past 6-months, so ...

Re: [DIY] Big Hero 6 Hiro's Fighting Robot - Megabot (Work In Progress)

Finally, assembly time! PLA is one of the more difficult plastics to glue together, and many superglues don't work at all. I've read many studies comparing different products, and Loctite's Ultra Gel Control Super Glue seems to be one of the best products. I've been using it for years now with great...

Re: Considering New App - Hotkey Monitor

To be honest, I've been taking an extended mental break from programming. Each day I tell myself that tomorrow I'll get back into it, and then each new day I feel a bit overwhelmed at the idea of trying to figure out where I was 6 weeks ago to pick back up on development. Instead, I've let my energi...

Re: [Resolved] CMC fails to load bitmap during screensaver error

If possible, it's best to let the JPG artwork syncing finish before exiting CMC or rebooting. Sounds like that might have been behind these recent issues. When I first released CCC, I had low confidence in it's ability to accurately stay in sync, which is the main reason why I configured it to do a ...

Re: eaccess violation from CMC playing one TV series

I'm glad to learn you have resolved it. Your solution illustrates that the problem resided with the My Movies data, and that once corrected both CCC and CMC worked as desired. It's quite possible that the timing of when the issue arose was purely coincidental with your upgrade to v4.2. From long ter...

Re: [DIY] Big Hero 6 Hiro's Fighting Robot - Megabot (Work In Progress)

While I'm waiting on some final parts to print out, I decided to work on a painting template. Megabot has two faces, the yellow happy, smiley face, and the red destroy face. Since the printed model's face is only about 1.25 inches wide (33 mm), and I wanted it to look as accurate as possible, I thou...
