iPhone for Samurize

Update 1.2
-Updated all included plugins
-Fixed a bug where the search application would disappear when moved.
-Fixed the calendar day highlight position to be more accurate.
-Centered the media player artist name and song title text.

UPDATE 1.1

-Fixed the calendar functions.
-Updated the calendar buttons.
-Fixed the color of the 'notes' text area to match the background.
-Fixed a weather icon.


Installation:

1.This config uses the following fonts: Arial, Franklin Gothic, and Vernanda. Place any missing fonts in your C:\Windows\Fonts directory.

2. Extract all the files to C: \Program Files\Samurize. Overwrite any existing files.

3. Make sure that the installation has completed as follows:

--The iPhone configs (4) should all be in C: \Program Files\Samurize\Configs directory.

--The Skins folder should be in C: \Program Files\Samurize\ and the skins folder should have a folder titled 'iPhone.'

--You should have all the included plugins in your C: \Program Files\Samurize\plugins directory.

--You should have a Media Controller folder in C: \Program Files\Samurize\Scripts, as well as a new sysinfo script in C: \Program Files\Samurize\Scripts.

Notes:

1. To start the iPhone for Samurize, open up the Instance Manager, select the default instance, and click the edit button on the bottom left. Select the corresponding iPhone config file. Hit 'OK' and then run Samurize. The iPhone should start.

2. To change the weather location, simply edit the [link] default location.You can find your location ID by typing in your location in

weather.com. Once you are at your locations page, simply look for the loctation ID in the URL. For example, Hamburg, Germany's url is weather.com/...local/GMXX0049?from=search_city, so it's location ID is GMXX0049.



Known Bugs:

1. Certain functions (search included) will become 'stuck' on the screen. Going back to the applications view or locked view fixes this problem. (This is caused by the ConfigPosition meter which loads the iPhone in the center of any screen: there is no fix).

2. This configuration may be CPU or memory intensive (10% average for CPU | 18k average for memory). If your computer cannot load the iPhone properly, open up the configuration file and completely remove all the 'stuff' that you won't be using.

3. Many times an action which requires a click will necessitate the mouse stay OVER the button being clicked to allow the action to initiate.




Feel free to email me or send me a message with any bugs or comments.

PLEASE be very specific when describing bugs.

Best wishes,
halfwayglad.

iPhone for Samurize by ~halfwayglad I totally missed this one until tavfan brought it to my attention. It's like an iPhone on your computer. A great way to experience an iPhone and it's features without actually having to buy one. This is customisation at it's best. ( Suggested by tavfan and Featured by mrrste )

I can't get this to work at all.

When I select it, I get an ImageCycler message saying 'No Images were found' with red X.

looks pretty incredible. Even if I am against the idea of branding my desktop, I am going to download and try it out to see if I like it. Is there any way to associate the music player with MediaMonkey?

shucks! couldn't get it working. I thought I almost had it, but it crashed after hitting a few buttons on the interface. I like the idea of Samurize, but haven't gotten it to work super proper. I'm sure this is quite the find for those people who have it working. I downloaded and installed Samurize just to try this out, and that might have something to do with it. I noticed that you have to run the program once in order to produce the "Default" instance. I wonder if there is more that needs to be done in order to make this work.

Samurize can be quite powerful depending on what you use it for - and lightweight.

I must admit the iPhone for Samurize is a bit buggy - not because it doesn't work or it's coded improperly, it's just such a large "gadget" that Samurize has a bit of a fit. My only suggestion would be to try setting it up again. I can't do much else.

Yeah, this configuration is so huge that Samurize doesn't seem to like it now and then unless you install it perfectly. I put it up on deviantArt more because if you get it to work, it's pretty awesome, but it took me too long just to keep to myself.

It could be a number of things, all of which I cannot diagnose without being in front of your computer to see it myself. My suggestion is try to see if you can get it to work--if not, my apologies--it probably won't ever work.

Large configurations like this for Samurize are very tricky to transfer from PC to PC.
