Newly released/updated for the Caanoo
FBGrab Deamon Version ---------------------What Is It ?------------Fbgrab is a program that lets you take screenshots from games and emulators, however up until now it was only possible to use fbgrab from a commandline console (telnet).I made the fbgrab program into a deamon so that it keeps running in the background and listens for a certain keypress (specified in the keyconfig file), if the key (combination)has been pressed it will make a screenshot of whatever you are currently seeing on the Caanoo screen.How To use ?------------first edit the keyconfig file to your liking, you can specify key combinations by just editing the current config file setting 1 if the key needs to be pressed or 0 if it doesn't.for example this is the default keyconfig file where you'll have to press I + II to make a screenshot which is also the default setting:I=1II=1Y=0A=0B=0X=0L=0R=0HOME=0Do not delete any of the "not used keys" and also do not change the order of the file, after you have chosen your configuration, start the program once and only once You won't see anything come up on the screen so when using a menu you will be returned directly back to it after running fbgrab deamon. The deamon should be runningnow and whenever you press the key combination you have choosen a new screenshot will be generated in your /mnt/sd/ directory named Screenshot1.png, Screenshot2.png, Screenshot3.png... etcIt will never overwrite an existing screenshot !Notes:------DO NOT RUN THE PROGRAM TWICE,it doesn't make your dingoo explode but you will get double screenshots ! (obviously).DO NOT FORGET TO COPY THE KEYCONFIG FILE AND DO NOT SET ALL KEYS TO 0failing to do so will make the deamon keep taking screenshots if you changed the keyconfig file while the deamon was already running you'll have to reboot the caanoo (or kill the previous running deamon process somehow) and restart the fbgrab deamon otherwise you'll have the program running twice.I couldn't figure out a way to let you (the user) know if they screenshot was succesfull or not (i tried audio and writing to the framebuffer but both were not a great option).Anyway just test it out by using the default config and see if it creates your screenshots !the caanoo version doesn't seem to work with all games i have thrown at it, also it can only take screenshots of games that use 16 bit graphics mode.I don't really know how to figure out what display mode the framebuffer is currently in (but i didn't bother to look yet either, it's getting rather late)Credits:--------Deamon version created by willems davy aka joyrider Http://www.willemssoft.beOriginal version sources come from this website : http://hem.bredband.net/gmogmo/fbgrab/the (modified) source code is included in the zip fileThanks to the guys #dingoonity (freenode) for helping with a few issues.
