BAFCube - HTC Cube Clone - Test Version 8

UPDATED 10/29 TO TEST VERSION 10:
Okay, I did a LOT of work, mostly optimizing the animation and most of the work was backend improvements. If anyone wants to try it out, the animations should be a lot smoother. Slow load time is a known issue at this point as most of the startup-optimizations I made in the previous test versions were removed when I rewrote the affected code. I will be reoptimizing the startup time, so no need to report that.

Again, there is no actual functionality in this release, aside from the animation and core. You will only see buttons "select" when you press them on the launcher screen, the other screens do nothing.

Here's the new test version: http://misc.barfthedog.net/BAFCubeTest10.exe


Test Version 8 / Original Info:

I started working on making up my own HTC Cube clone earlier today. I don't like the flash one particularly, mainly because it's slow. This is being developed in C# using the .Net Compact Framework version 2.0.

I'm concentrating on having this be easy on memory, while being speedy and highly configurable. It will probably depend on FTouchFlo and minimize.exe (configurable if you want it to minimize or close).

With that being said, I'm releasing test version 8. The only thing present at the moment is the animation stuff and the base framework. Within the next few days, I hope to have it be configurable and actually doing something.

If anyone wants to run it and see how it runs, giving feedback or suggestions on it, that would be awesome.

Known issues: Text flashing when you press buttons on the app launcher screen [due to the way text is handled, will be fixed in later releases].

Instructions: Download this directly to your PPC and run it. Gesture left/right to flip screens, and gesture down to close.

Note: This is my first time posting something like this on here. If it's in the wrong spot or something, please let me know and move it.

Thanks!

I was hoping someone would make this using anything other then flash.

Will this work on other devices besides the Mogul?

It should. Someone on IRC tested it on the 6700, and said it worked. I'd expect it to work on any device with a 320x240 screen (in portrait mode) with .NET CF 2.0.

Well, it does work on my Apache also. Good start.

A few things for you:
1. Rotation is pretty slow.
2. The whole cube flashes when I touch the screen not just the text.
3. None of the links work.

I'm running Helmi's WM6 for the Apache.

Slow animation will be the easy fix, I just need to tweak the timing of it. The text disappearing can't really be helped because I'm using the prerendered cube images from xda-developers. And, can you elaborate more on the button flickering when you rotate?

#2 - That is definitely something I will aim to fix when I neaten up the code. #3 - Yeah, nothing works yet, the button press detection is there but it doesn't do anything yet. I haven't gotten around to adding it.

If you can get these items fixed I think you will have a winner. Eagerly awaiting the next version.

This is looking very very cool.

The text flashing has also been mentioned and the rotation needs to be sped up slightly.

I know the buttons don't actually work yet but it looks they get selected even when gesturing. Will this cause the program/shortcut to be opened when gesturing?

Great work so far Baffles, much faster than the flash version. Who needs an iPhone or a Touch with a working version of this?

Looks great......very simple and to the point!

Great work!!

issues:

1. Animation too slow and not smooth......guess you're already working on it.

2. The whole cube flashes when you touch the screen.

Best of Luck!
