How much would it cost to sponsor someone to get true VGA working on the Athena and get all of the icon and display issues resolved then post the package on the forum for everyone to download?

If the price is right I may be willing to sponsor such a project. If anyone wants to contribute you're welcome to join in.

I just don't know how to do this myself or would. But I would be willing to pay for someone's time to get this done and give it away for free to everyone on the forum.

it must be really cheap because if you try TrueVGA you can see that there are only 2 ore 3 bugs...

CommManager
3G Icon
Software Keyboard (use Resco, it is much better *gg*)

So it canīt be difficult for an expert ....
I regrettably donīt know what to do :(

WM6 and VGA
According to this article:
https://blogs.msdn.com/windowsmobile...revisited.aspx


WM6 supports VGA - 640x480:





Would it not be better to wait for the Ameo WM6 upgrade?

You could also check the universal forums for different icons and fixes for TrueVga and OzVga. Also see ViJay555 site (not sure of spelling) he made several fixes for Universal trueVga on the Universal forums. He has developed many utilities and applications for PPC's.

Thanks for the reply. My keyboard works perfectly in trueVGA mode. The problems I've identified are CommManager, Connection Icon, Phone (which was fixed with a CAB file so is no longer an issue, some setting screens also, the HTC icon bar for the Today screen...and I know there are others. I can provide an exhaustive listing if needed.

Thanks! I tried searching the Universal forum but after an hour didn't find much. I'll go back and look. I just want this to work so I'm willing to pay to get it done and am also willing to give it out for free to everyone else. I'm glad to hear WM6 will support VGA. It's long overdue, especially since the devices with a hack can do it.

I'm confused. Doesn't the x7500 currently support 640x480 or something like that? When I used trueVGA and everything fits, what resolution is it running at?

May I add to this list Copilot Live (version 5 is what I'm using) - missing option configuration tabs. Also, the application is now covering only 1/4 of the screen. Not what I want really. I want it to cover the entire screen.

I think the entire HTCHomeplug is unuseable and need replacement.

Oh well, may just have to switch back to QVGA when driving.

if someone wants to test for me i could probably get the OS working in true VGA, 3rd party apps however are another problem, some just never work properly in true VGA.
