Hello Guys,

as I developed my SciLor's WiMoBlue for my very own HD2, I want also post it here :)

SciLor's WiMoBlue is an Application that allows to control a Windows Mobile Phone with another one. In my case my new HD2 with my old Kaiser. Playing FpseCE and Morphgear gets real fun :) Also you can use the "old" phone as hardware keyboard.

Download/Videos/Info available here:

PS: Please take a look at my WiMoBlue Bug Report section to give through any working Device combi! (Direct link on the right side of the video in red)

Pre-Alpha v3(2010-02-23)
-Enhancement: Show Connection Status of the Server
-Enhancement: Controller disables the "Disconnect" Button. You can activate it by touching the form anywhere.
-Enhancement: "Gaming"-Hack for Hardware-Keyboards, that allows to hold and release multiple button, intending the first button is still hold if one of them is released. (Some Keyboards only send a KeyPress Event with the Keys Information, the Releasing Events are the same)

-Readme Mistake: Should work on any WM Device ;)

Hi, I love the idea of this program. I got it to work fine with the WinMo start screen. But can't seem to get FpseCE to work with it. Using the same two phones (kaiser+HD2) am I missing something?

Tried assigning the hardware keys for use with FpseCE but with no luck, then resorted to pressing randomly with less luck. It's connected fine, thought I might have something set up wrong with FpseCE. Any help I'd appreciate, thanks.

Try to type in a text editor. If that works, which fpsece version do you have? I use the supporter.

To asign the keys in fpsece open the controller.screen and tap/double tap on the button you want to set (Do not press on the number!) Then ibstead of the numver on top of the button should get '--'. Then press your button on tge Kaiser and it should change to a number, thats it.

I've tried all that, I use the latest supporter version with Simon Mallions theme. Perhaps changing the theme back to default will help, i've tried everything else. Works fine with writing sms and word mobile, just fpsece not registering any key presses. Thanks for the reply, I'll try it again with the default skin.

I am currently reworking it. With a udp support, plugins etc.
UDP will allow to use it with your computer without bluetooth or use it over wifi if you phones do not have bluetooth.

I am currently fighting agains problems with bluetooth streams that may delay the Video Streaming of the other device :(

Hi SciLor,
congratulations for all your projects. They are really interesting starting from FuelBlaster to WinMoBlue. You are an "insane" genius!! :D:D

I have tried WinMoBlue on my Blackstone (controlled) and my PC (Windows Server 2003 sp2 bla bla bla .NET Framework 3.5 SP3) but doesn't run.... :(
In this case running the PC part doesn't start nothing. In the event viewer this error: Generate Activation Context non riuscito per C:\Programmi\SciLor\SciLor's WiMoBlue Server Desktop\32feetWidcomm.dll
The server part on Blackstone starts but naturally doesn't find nothing to connect...

In reverse mode (PC controlled - HD controller) there is no way to take control too. In this case it the PC returns error about bluestack not supported.

As Bluetooth device i use a CONITECH DAKOTA Bluetooth 2.0 EDR USB Dongle Class1 based on Broadcom Widcomm driver v5.1.0.1700

Hope this can help you for future development. Keep it updated: it has many prosepctives!!! :);)

Nice to know that you like my projects :)

I think the bluetooth driver I use does not support your dongle :(.

In the next version (which is under heaving developement and may come in the next weeks) I will additional support wifi, so you may try it over wifi l8er. The best thing will be, plugin support, not only keyboard input, but also mouse input. AND a video stream from the other device :).

Any possibility of having it so you press a touchscreen button on the phone and it corresponds to a button press on the other device.

Example:

Phone has a picture of a NES Controller on it. Tapping the A button on the screen presses A on the controlled device, thus allowing it to emulate various gamepads.

It works!

Hi Scilor, I have tested it with sucess, but with a few small problems, some that I will report after more tests, and some are in the end of the reply. thank you to keep working on this project. :rolleyes:
I've controlled my HD2 with a smartphone, the HTC S711 AKA VOX (winmo 6.1) and it works well with FpseCE, but unfortunately not yet writing messages.

Small problems:

1- Some hardware keys still works in the smartphone after connected and not in the HD2, wich was annoying becouse sometimes I've unintentionally closed the program in the smartphone.

2- the "Fn" key doesn't work. :confused:

Thank you and sorry if I wrote something wrong. ;)
