Re: Interesting uses for Video Feeds! I'll start

I present my version of Bag Feeds using the new dxNothing functionality. This really needs a video to demonstrate it properly. I tried; I got a slideshow. :oops:

1. There are 5 full-screen stacked clients on the right on my main monitor. Down the left, on my second monitor, is a dxNothing window with video feeds of is1-is5. They are fully interactive.
Image

2. I've now clicked in the video feeds of is1-is5 to open the merchant dialog for each character. Or you could turn mouse broadcasting on and hope all the cameras are lined up properly.
Image

3. I press Ctrl+B and a new dxNothing window appears (I used a second swap group to achieve this). It contains 4 fairly small video feeds of the merchant dialog and my bags, one per slave. Sadly, they are too small to use.
Image

4. Voilà! I mouseover one of the small bag feeds and it expands to fill that dxNothing window. It's fully interactive and close to normal size. I can sell my junk from here!
Image

5. It even accepts keyboard input so when I discover an upgrade sitting in my bags I can equip it without leaving this window.
Image

6. And when I mouseout from that dxNothing window, all the feeds go back to how they were.
Image

7. Pressing Ctrl+B again hides all my bag feeds and their dxNothing window so I don't get distracted by the movement in those windows as I am going about my business. And I can use that part of my screen for something else.

On this is a cooldown bar and the full sceen video feeds of all chars.

Image

This makes doing the dayey cooldowns a lot easyer with alcy

Image

And this is to help out tol and if i need to make sure a char has joined a que i use this on my HEX setup as well to get them all into AV!

This is a new project i just added tonight combat Res box on the dk's

A smaller version of the character selection videofeeds and an easy way to keep an eye on combopoints of the feral druids or energy of the balance-druids.

Re: Interesting uses for Video Feeds! I'll start

Thought I would share my video FX login process:

Initially once all clients are started I press my G4 key on my G11 keyboard and see this:

Image


Once I type my password (keyboard repeat and mouse repeat are on) in I hit G4 once again and see:

Image

I click the Login button on IS2 and IS3 to enter in authenticator codes (I have 1 mobile and 1 standard authenticator)

Once all chars are authenticated I press G4 once again and see:

Image


At this point I tend to login one at a time so that my first toon is the main so whispers go to that toon.

So thats it, pretty simple!

Replacement for a normal layout, with character names and colors!

Here's my multi-character management view. clicks broadcast, so I can easily equip gear and make sure my characters match up. The key that toggles this video fx set also sends B and C to all windows to toggle their bags and character pane.
