DredSensor v1.0:
================================================== =====================================

================================================== =====================
Reviewed on gadgetmix.com: See the article
================================================== =====================

If you have tried to play a game needing left and right key on an HTC Touch Diamond, you noticed that they are 2mm wide and if you click next to it, you get back to home page or to dialing menu etc...

So I've written a prog allowing you to lock these 4 keys actions and replace it by classical key event (VK_LEFT, VK_RIGHT, ...).
In that way you can play tetris, and use "Pick-Up" and "Hang-Up" keys for going left and right.

Link ->: DredSensor

To use it, you need:
1) An HTC Touch Diamond (it's the only one i have so i can't test it on other models)
2) Install the .cab
3) Reboot your HTC
4) Run a game (or app or ...)
5) Get your stylus out and back-in, in less than 1 second
6) Click "Yes"

----- A config window opens:

7) Check that Type = "HardKeySimul"
8) Click "Ok"


Now you can use (and eventually assign) your 'Home', 'Back', 'Pick-Up' and 'Hang-Up' keys in that game/app.
Actually, the 'Pick-Up' and 'Hang-Up' keys are always defined as Left and Right events.


Have fun.


Ps:

For people interested, the other "Type" in the config window are:
- "Launcher": allow you to quicklaunch 4 app (that you define in the config wnd) when you double tap (not click, just tap) on one of those 4 keyz
- "Scroll": allow you to scroll the current window by tapping those 4 keyz panel
- "KeySimul": allow you to send left/right/up/down events by tapping those 4 keyz panel

first of all: great app!

only thing i don't like is that now every time i pull out the stylus the phone vibrates. maybe you could make the "window-catching-thing" optional, so you have to enable it first?!? with that, the app would be perfect to me!

figured out an other problem: the "scroll-wheel-function" in opera and tomtom doesn't work anymore...

Hello.
As it's a background program, making vivrate the phone is the best way i found to easlily know if it's loaded or not.
If you don't like that, you can disable it by manually editing the 'Config.ini' file in '/Program Files/DredSensor':

Go under the section you want to disable vibrator in (ex: "[Default]")
Add: "NoVibrate=1"

For the scroll problem, i didn't change scrolling system from v1.0 so are you sure it was working in v1.0 and it's no more working in v1.1?

Exclamation Doesn't work for all hard keys
I have the original diamond and it doesn't look like any of the key presses work.
I could really do with replacing volume and Home/Back Buttons. Do these buttons
support Long press too?
