Acer Neotouch?
Hi!

I would really love to try this out!
Any chance of getting this to work on the Acer Neotouch?

I get an error message (no HTCSensorSDK), and I tried downloading a copy to the Windows folder, and the error message disappeared (which doesn't necessarily mean it's working, just that the DLL was found?)

Anyway, when I try to run the wizard, a language selection dialog box appears, and then disappears...

Thanks

Perhaps if you can point me to a sensor SDK that works for your device I could make it compatible, no chance otherwise.

Lumos is working once you tap save&apply or after soft reset, you don't see anything other than it doing its job on external light change. You can also see it in task manager that shows running processes.

The sensor looks like a little LED and it's usually placed around the front phone speaker. However current Lumos version has a bug in calibration that renders the first step useless, it always shows 0.

And yes, I will fix it.. eventually

You wont see Lumos in the task manager as a "running" program. Look at the processes, there you'll find it taking almost zero ressources and just a few bytes in memory. Great app until day one it was released.

Seems there's an issue with Lumos and the G-sensor on the HD2. When Lumos is running, it makes any app that uses the G-sensor hang for a moment everytime it reads the light sensor. On an app like Caver (ageye.de), it locks about 500ms at every sensor read, making the game unplayable. It's less noticeable in the built-in Teeter game, but still visible.

I'm on the official 1.66 ROM, but others have reported it too.

Would it be possible to disable auto backlight control by Lumos, but just keep the exceptions?
I'm OK with the built-in auto backlight control, but would just want the backlight to be forced to full in selected applications (photo and video viewer). Could Lumos have a mode that only monitors the active window, if an exception is found it forces backight to the set level like now, and otherwise just activates the device's default auto backlight function? That would be a workaround until a sensor read fix is found.

Question Scale in HTC auto mode ?
Hello

I'm experiencing some little lags due to Lumos in a lot of applications on my HTC HD2. Therefore, I'd prefer to avoid using it, even if it works fine in term of efficiency.

The only thing that was annoying me before is the range of possible brightness in the automatic mode, which seems to be only from 30% to about 80%.
It's a to small range, especially in the dark areas!

Does somebody know how to change this range with a simple regkey?

The only ones I found are in Current_user\ControlPanel\Backlight :
MaxBrightnessScale and MinBrightnessScale, but they only seem to concern the range in the manual mode...

Where to find the same in auto mode? That would be a simple change...

Thanks for your help

Not working on HD2 ROM 1.66
On my HD2, ROM 1.48, with NetCF 3.5 Lumos worked perfectly. Now I have upgraded to ROM 1.66 and Lumos asks for a newer version of NetCF. But when I install the NetCF with which Lumos used to work, I'm told this is already present in ROM. So I shouldn't need to install it, right? But how to get it to work?
Help would be appreciated, since I dearly love this app.
