SciLor's GSensor Control Preview v2
attachment.php


SciLor's GSensor Control is a tool for converting your Gsensor in a Dpad :).
Choose from to modes: Analog Emulation or Digital Pad.
Analog Emulation sends the more keystroke the more you tilt your device
Digital Pad just holds the button in the direction you tilt it. If you put your device flat again the button is release.

You will know to be able to press enter by pulling your device up.

ReadMe

You will need .NET CF 3.5 (and a device with a g-sensor of course) - Link at the Bottom

This is a g-sensor d-pad emulator. Just tilt your device for sending up/down/left/right/return.
For sending the return button just pull your device upwards.
-Analog Emulation tries to send the more keystrokes the more you tilt your device
-Digital Pad sends just holds the "button" as long you tilt your device in that direction

You will always have to run the application to make it work. There is not background process (yet).

Beware, Alpha status!

Nice but can I suggest something?

I completely agree, this is what button less devices need. I can't believe there are no proper working versions of tilt scrolling are available. G controller and D pad seem promising but are not really getting far.

As far as I can see you only need two things to get this working great.

1: Device centring so it can be calibrated to a normal holding position for neutral.

2: Maybe a map to a button to pause it - so, for instance, hold the volume button so stop it scrolling once you are where you need to be - or the other way round - press a button to un-pause it and allow scrolling.

If you could get it to emulate finger scrolling - like moving around a webpage or document - that would be awesome.

Good luck - someone's gotta get this working

tested

I tried this on my Imagio this morning (6.5). Didn't appear to work (I could have been doing something wrong but it seems like a pretty straight forward deal). I tested it on the Total Commander menu and the PHM Registry menu. It did not respond to either of the 2 options.

I tried installing on device memory and storage card. I did several soft resets. I reinstalled. I have zoombar plus installed. that turns your zoombar into a d pad by sending keystrokes- could that cause a conflict with this app?

**EDIT** So I uninstalled both. Reinstalled GSensor. Still not working for me. Looking forward to further development though.

Brilliant!

I've just installed it on my HD2 (using Duttys HG v0.9 WWE).

The only App I really want to use it in is MS Reader & I can confirm that it works there. However, there are a few enhancements needed before I'd add it to my permanently installed programmes ...

1.) Sensitivity setting ... it's far too sensitive (analogue or digital) ... I'd prefer it if a definite movement was needed, as it is, the slightest adjustment of angle (and none of us are rock steady! :D) triggers the app.
2.) The ability to automatically enable or disable depending on which application had the focus (i.e. a whitelist & a blacklist) ... was a bit disconcerting when my home-page suddenly started switching tabs, etc!
3.) Calibration for centering (as suggested by Toggs) ... I definitely don't use my phone perfectly flat, but hold it tilted at all times ...
4.) ?? Mapping of the G-Sensor direction ?? i.e. I'm fine with left-tilt/right-tilt being page forward, page-back. But it would be nice if up-tilt/down-tilt were mappable to something else.
5.) This is 1. & 4. combined ... would it be possible to be selectively sensitive? i.e. set the up-tilt/down-tilt to a low (or zero) sensitivity & the left/right higher?

Thanks for a great addition to my HD2 experience. I'll definitely be donating once it's out of beta!

Does nothing here on my Touch HD :eek:

What should it do?!
Do I have to start that program to work or is it autostarted after a soft reset?

Should it "simulate" d-pad right button when i do this with my phone?

Doing nothing for me either. I am really looking to try this & spread word about it...Let me know if I can be of any help. I tried both ways but not working..actually nothing happens actually. Using TP2 unbranded with g-sensor enabled. :)

Maybe its nice idea to measure the curent state (position) of the device and use that as 0 position (starting) for G-Sensor every time we starting this software

I will do my best to give you a nice experience. I am currently planning that you can set up a standard behavior and you may also set special behavior for applications. You may choose if the GSensor should be calibrated on the programs startup automaticly, you may pre calibrate it for the application only or use the standard you set.

Mhh I hope I find enough time to make that features soon :)

SciLor
PS:
What about running it as a process, seperated from the config tool so there is any need of an open window in the background. :)
