Fitaly on TX

I am releasing (still in alpha or beta or something like that) a free (but showing ads for my two paid products) Fitaly skin loader. You need the skin loader from http://www.prussfamily.us/FitalySkinLoad.zip .

This software is not written or supported by Textware Solutions. In fact, there is no support for it whatsoever. I do have permission to use the Fitaly skin in the software, but only for use in conjunction with FitalyVirtual.

You also need the Palm LifeDrive version of Textware Solutions' FitalyVirtual. Do NOT install any skin files included with FitalyVirtual and do NOT use FitalySetup's option to install the skin (all you need to install is FitalyVirtualT3.prc and FVSetupT3.prc). Instead, hotsync FitalySkinLoad.prc,
run FitalySkinLoad and tap on "Set Fitaly skin".
And then enable Fitaly (but not the skin) in FitalySetup. To uninstall, tap on "Set system skin" and disable Fitaly in FitalySetup.

So does this enable all the usual Fitaly options, configuring slides, etc? If so this might just be the thing that convinces me to buy a TX. I'm looking for something for browsing, emailing and text editing and I'm very big on Fitaly, so when TextWare decided not to support the TX I was really disappointed.

I've currently deleted this from my site due to a serious bug report. FitalySkinLoad is just responsible for displaying the keyboard. Actually interpreting slides, etc., would be done by FitalyVirtualT3, which does have the usual Fitaly options.

No, I don't do anything with PPC.

I posted an update that fixed one crash bug. Make a backup before using, of course.

It's my understanding that there were changes to the way the dynamic input area was implemented (again) that broke FitalyVirtual on the TX and that Jean Ichbiah finally got fed up with making a new version for every new Palm that came out. So I'm curious to know if you believe that the work you've done solved the problem that Jean thought was not worth fixing.

Fitaly for Palm was discontinued, wasn't it? I am hesitant to learn the Fitaly layout if it's very likely that there ain't any Fitaly support for future non-Windows Palm handhelds.

Given that I've got a TX in my lap that has FitalyVirtual installed and seemingly working, obviously I've solved the problem. :-) The problem was simply one of displaying the Fitaly keyboard. The old FitalyVirtual works just fine on the TX (I haven't done any stability testing, though), it's just that it couldn't display the Fitaly keyboard. FitalySkinLoad overcomes this difficulty (just as my SkinTW overcame a similar difficulty on the Tapwave Zodiac). That's all.

None of this is supported officially either by me or by Jean. Nonetheless, it is something we're releasing together in order that users who got used to Fitaly on earlier devices should have it on the TX. Use at your own risk. I did this both for free advertising and because I had written some skin loading code under commission from Jean but he never got around to implementing it because they discontinued FitalyVirtual on the Palm, and so I had the code sitting around, and good code shouldn't be wasted. :-)

Alex, this, I assume, is the skin you mentioned to me earlier. MobileRead visitors should know that Fitaly ALREADY works on the T/X thanks to you: MySkin, your excellent software, can merge its skin with Fitaly's thus allowing use of Fitaly on the T/X. I know, because I have been using it for weeks. So, tell me, is this new skin an improvement on the merge feature of MySkin? Philippe Radley
