Just a small update here...

Actually we had a HUGE progress with the forthcoming Drum Setup Application!

What is done:

Added the ability to save setups.
Ability to create unlimited amount of setups per user.
Ability to mark 1 setup as "Top" or "Main" setup.
Ability to name/rename setups to what ever desired.
Created Drum Setups List (user edit section) from where users will be able to go to edit screen for each setup.


Users will have 2 pages: 1 where they create/edit setups users will have to be logged-in to get to this page, and another one will be used to display users drum setups.

Yep just keep me in on the changes so that I would be able to reflect them in the save script.  Wink

Well it actually does save already...

PS: Reno I have changed the "-" value back to line break, as we discussed before, but that does not solve the problem...

Script breaks if user inputs a line break or | in description...

I think we should change the data-separators to a longer preset values something like: 157_tbs instead of | and something similar for line breaks...

I dont have any other ideas how to workaround this issue...

Authentication is not a problem for me, and I would not recommend using SMF cookie for that because it is constructed in a very weird way... something similar to: SHA1(SHA1 username + (SHA1 password + salt)+salt+userlevel) or something similar...

We can do it much easier using the main DSA cookies.

MYSQL is also not a problem for me, I would need to see the flat DB file to create the needed table structure.

Pearl can access mysql by itself so I guess I am missing where did you plan for PHP to come in...

I mean the script can just read the strings from MYSQL instead of flatfile on its own. - Or am I missing something??

Yeah Right  Cheesy

I think it is the opposite way around!

I think that your ability to fix them as fast as you can, is a MUCH bigger asset to the project!

Yep it does work great! - Love the fact that you can just drag the number to a preferred place!!!

It does work good in both modes in IE, but there is 1 small glitch...

Try this:

Open a new empty stage.
Add one cymbal and move it to the center of the stage.
Open the editor and using the controls move the number to a new location.
Now drag the cymbal to a new position on a stage.

The number will snap back to the position it was on the cymbal prior you have changed it via the editor.

PS: From what I see it is not a browser issue... as the behavior is the same on all browsers.

PPS: the strange thing is that it works fine if the number is moved via the mouse drag...

Confirmed the number disappears in both mods on IE8/xp...

Very cool!!
34  Web Site / Web Site Updates, Suggestions, and Support / Re: Drum Setup Application Development on: March 04, 2010, 08:58:27 PM
Maybe... Did they try it on ie8/xp??
35  Web Site / Web Site Updates, Suggestions, and Support / Re: Drum Setup Application Development on: March 04, 2010, 08:46:51 PM
Yes it does work well if moved from the editors buttons - if you dont touch the actual image on the stage, and move the images only using the editors buttons, the images do stay smooth  Smiley
36  Web Site / Web Site Updates, Suggestions, and Support / Re: Drum Setup Application Development on: March 04, 2010, 08:40:06 PM
Ok, give me a min, I have to restart in PC to try that...
37  Web Site / Web Site Updates, Suggestions, and Support / Re: Drum Setup Application Development on: March 04, 2010, 08:26:58 PM
Ok, you will be laughing, and I do feel stupid, but none of it worked, and I did find the onscreen keyboard, but there is no print screen key...

Anyway I made a photo with my phone, it is not that good quality-wice, but you can see what I am about to explain...

Only on IE:

When you add an object (any object - drum of cymbal) the image is round with nice smooth corners, but as soon as you will touch it with the mouse the image corners become... LIKE it is a GIF again... - They are all pixelated.

Note the big cymbal in the corner is untouched, the rest of the objects were moved on the stage...

Look closer at the corners of all the images and you will see the difference.

It works now images are png... But something is still not correct...

How do you make a snapshot of the screen on PC? (I dont have pc keyboard, I am using MacBook to run windows)
39  Web Site / Web Site Updates, Suggestions, and Support / Re: Drum Setup Application Development on: March 04, 2010, 07:32:28 PM
Yep, Opera now works perfect  Grin

IE... (I am not a fan of IE either...) shows :

Browser: Microsoft Internet Explorer
Browser Version: 4

And that is in both mods (Compatibility and Regular)

Cheers

PS: I did see the browser info line, and tried ctrl+f5 does it just refreshes the browser??

Kicks are nice  Grin

IE8 still showing gif... - in both modes... Same with opera, - no changes there.

PS: this time I double checked everything Cheesy

Reno, I made a mistake in my previous report!

I revisited all the browsers and found out that in IE 8 It is possible to set what is in front and what is in the back from both the editor and by clicking on the items on stage. - The problem is the throne! - It is always on top of everything no matter what you click.

Other than this my report was accurate.

I am very sorry for the confusion Embarrassed

cyms and drums now have higher quality png images which work well in Firefox but not in older IE which has no alpha channel support.

So if someone could test it for me on IE7 that would be grand.

Ok here we go:

WINDOWS:
OS XP Pro SP2


IE 8 (both compatibility mode and regular) - images are .gif

It works overall, but there is no way to set what is in front and what is in the back. - It looks like images are layered one beneath the other in order they were added.

Fire Fox - images are .png - Works well.

Opera - images are .png - Works well.

Safari images are .png - Works Perfect

Mac OS 10.5.8 (Power Mac G5) and 10.6.2 (Intel) - All browsers work identically on both machines.

Safari images are .png - Works Perfect

Fire Fox - images are .png - Works well.

Opera - images are .png - Works well.

There are some weird screen inconsistencies that I have saw on Fire Fox and Opera (images are attached below), but other than this it was ok...

Also on all browsers (mac and pc) even if the throne image was .png the below data info still showed as .gif image.

Thats all for now...

Running the test above, - it does not appear to be installed, but it is not a problem, I will get it installed when we will need it.

Cheers.
44  Web Site / Web Site Updates, Suggestions, and Support / Re: Drum Setup Application Development on: February 28, 2010, 09:06:58 PM
I dont remember... How do I check it? But we will add it if it is needed and not installed...

Cheers.

Appears to work as expected...Smiley

Ken what do you think the drum/cymbal sizes do we need to have currently the form allows 4-22"

In my opinion 4 is unnecessary, as the smallest drum I could think about is 6"...

Same with 22 - in my opinion it is not enough as some orchestral drums go well beyond 36"

Same with cymbals...
There are some really small cymbals out there - is 4" the smallest that you have seen?

And cymbals go way beyond 22" - think Gongs!!

http://www.drumsoloartist.com/Site/Cymbal_Setup.html

Some of them go beyond 60"!

Also do you think we really need the "Drum Types" drop down?? - I mean description could be used for specifying the type.

The reason I dont think that Drum Type OR Cymbal Type is needed cause there are so many drum/cymbal types that if we would include Most of them the scroll-down would be huge!

For example if we include roto tom, bongo and timbale why dont we include:

Cajon
Conga
Darbuka
Djembe
Doumbek
Electronic
Octoban
Xylophone

to name a few...

Looks Great!

Few suggestions just in case you have dont know about them already.

1 - Movable description field is Amazing! Although, by default, I would place it underneath the stage and would make it as width as the stage.

That would add some more space for longer descriptions while it would still print the medium descriptions "one per line".

2 - When you dont use the description field in the Add to Stage form, adding an 11" drum prints:

[Number] - 11" Drum

But when you do use the description field in the Add to Stage form, adding an 11" drum prints:

[Number] - [Description]

I think it would be more logical for the application to print Size followed by Description:

[Number] - 11" [Description]

3 - Description Field should adjust its hight if there is no more space to house all added components.
Currently the text just goes over the bottom edge.

4 - Drums, just like Bass Drums should have both Width and Depth sizes.

That is all, although I did not find an ability to remove a drum from stage...

Cheers

It does look seriously cleaned up! - And the form idea where you choose the drum size is great too!

And I thought rotating would not be such a pain... I mean if it will require 40+ images per object maybe it is not a bad idea to have (less resolution?) - 5 degree increments?? This will significantly cut the amount of needed images?

PS: I am not concerned about the quantity, but rather throwing thoughts in the air in order to make the job easier... I mean, in my opinion, a 2 degree increments is a pretty high resolution for any real-life drum setup. - Is there a drummer that would REALLY require such a high precision of his setup?

In any case - This already looks like it is about to become the best Drum Setup Application I have ever used!

AKG D 112 for me...

Reasons:

Pretty decent and clean sound + unbreakable design.

This mic will not break a sweat no matter what you put it through! - When it is plugged in, it almost feels that even a nuclear explosion will not break this mike. Grin
