Hi Fonceur,

First I really like the way the latest changes are heading, thank you! Wink

Button press vs swipe vs slider:
Here is the challenge I am having, with the latest changes it has become even more difficult to register a button press. What I believe is happening is that a "swipe" movement is being picked up by the client even though I am not trying to swipe but simply push a button thus a move (slider) command is being sent back to the server. So the challenge as I see it is how to clearly identify a swipe vs a button press vs a slide . As it stands I am getting maybe 5% response on button presses. I understand the time delay behavior its just not translating on my phone. Perhaps for slide the action can be a double tap and then a slide; thinking out loud here...

I have not found anywhere where I can adjust swipe sensitivity, nor am I inclined to change it as everything else on the phone works without any issue.

Audio feedback:
When I first exceeded the press threshold the beep sound that issued from my phone sounded like my alarm was having a fault, it was kinda funny, didn't make the connection right away. Later I had set the time delay to 0 as a test for the issue discussed above so every screen tap caused the same high pitched beep beep. As I said it was kind of funny up until my wife explained to me that she would hurt me if I didn't stop whatever was causing the noise. Guess it irritated her. Confusedhock: (I turned the media volume down rather than risk her ire) Can you make Haptic feedback an option instead of sound, much less intrusive?

Thanks!
-Ben

Hmm, maybe you're shaking too much and should cut down on the coffee? Wink I guess I need to ignore small initial movements...

I just grabbed some "free Android sound", I couldn't find a click one... Wink

Maybe you have your sounds too high... Wink


Android RIVA Client: taRiva - Fonceur - 09-15-2010

Version 0.61

- Replaced the Press sound by the Haptic feedback of a keyboard tap.
- Initial movements of less than 10 pixels are ignored.


While you can fine tune the end of a movement, if all you want is a small movement, you might have to go passed the point and back...


Android RIVA Client: taRiva - Fonceur - 09-16-2010

Version 0.62

- Can select the Touch sensitivity from the Information screen (Registered user).
- Removed the debugging information about incoming/outgoing messages.

No can do on the coffee, actually there was blood in my coffee stream, fixed that later... Thanks for the change!

Yes it was

Haptic:
I am not able to trigger a haptic response at all. (it's turned on for the phone)

Button behavior:
After the 1st button press and subsequent expectged overlay load When I press a button for a different overlay I get the same overlay again (please wait dialog shows.) A 2nd press will the overlay associated with that button will load.

Button press delay:
What affects the response time for a button press to register as a button press. From a UI responsiveness perspective it seems far longer then how Android behaves directly in the UI; perhaps others could weigh in on their experience with this? I know we must find a happy balance or can this too be adjustable?

Wiki has definitions of each of the parameters!

Thanks!!!

I guess I'll need to make a version where you can test the various one...

Maybe there's a problem and it uses the previous one or something odd like that.

That's the Touch delay parameter...

Alright, I've gotten my RIVA issues sorted to where I can connect again via the android client, but my templates don't seem to work as others as.

Here is what the template looks like when I first load it (Fonceur's templates). There are not images being loaded and this is over my LAN connection at home, so speed is not an issue here.

If I press on the screen, it gets even worse with the screen shrinking even smaller.....

This is on a DroidX running Froyo (2.2). Under the information screen, it shows this.

Can you restart the app to get on the first image, hit menu and information, hopefully that won't be rescaling just yet... Also if you could send me a log please. The emulator won't allow me to try those higher resolution, as it has hardcoded limited available memory for the video buffer.

It says resolution = 480x854
[480x854]
(384x544)
