Hi !
First and foremost, as always very very good work.

1) How to change the sharpness of the system font / book. (with sharpness i mean Antialiasing & blurry -> "OFF")
2) Is it possible to change or set the depth of black?

- I would like to do this on my "Kobo Libra H2O" device, where i would like to have an emphasize on the "depth of the black" and "cleaning a font".

Thanks .

You need to edit the post and repaste the patch and put it in a code block. You've lost the formatting and thus, it won't work as is.

Apparentrly, because: it didn't cause any crash; the new values are shown correctly in the power-setting window; and setting the 4-days value didn't cause the reader do power-off after 4 hours i.e. the default value corresponding to the custom value; but actually didn't test the actual power-off after 4 days, since this period I normally use the reader almost any day
Anyway, no doubt it will work!

Yes. Upon a first glance, it's correct, but it's still missing the Libra values.

I haven't noticed this until now, does anyone know why these replacements are needed (replacing a value with the same value)?

Code:
  - ReplaceInt: {Offset: 0x886A8C, Find: 18, Replace: 18}
  - ReplaceInt: {Offset: 0x886938, Find: 14, Replace: 14}
  - ReplaceInt: {Offset: 0x886A74, Find: 12, Replace: 12}

Which patch is it? Some patches do it that way because it's up to you to customize the values.

Custom font values posted above. So I bet you're right. I guess I would have expected these "placeholder values" to be in the comments. Thanks!

A big THANK YOU to all who did the significant work re-writing patches for this release.

I do have one question. On geek1011's new interactive demo page, there is a "Don't uppercase header/footer text" setting I would like to implement, but I can't find that patch in any of the files. Is it part of a patch named differently?

Don't uppercase header/footer text

In https://pgaskin.net/kobopatch-patche...tch-13651.html,
there's a patch for
Code:
Don't uppercase header/footer text
Which yaml file in the /src/ folder is that line of code in? I checked libnickel, nickel, librmsdk, and keyword-searched uppercase, but couldn't find the relevant line.

Don't bother patching 4.17.13694. 4.18.13737 has been released and the patches for that will be released tonight (geek1011's tonight). So wait. Then you can install 4.18.13737 and then patch instead of bothering with 4.17.13694 and having to do it all over again for 4.18.13737.

Thanks for letting me know. Didn't realize a new firmware (4.18) was out. Love getting new firmware. It makes me feel like my device is getting better.
