For those who are primarily using the CoolReader app from the tools&games collection of Vlasovsoft: No significant changes detected - except that I had to modify my interline space value from 115 (%) to 112 to get the very same page layout as before (for both PW3 and KT3, BTW...).
The new version works well on my KOA, thanks!

BTW, it's very easy to remove all (non-freeware) games from the Vlasovsoft toolbox if you don't like them: Simply edit the file /vlasovsoft/applications.ini (delete the lines referring to these games), then remove all the respective directories (like e.g. /vlasovsoft/pbchess/* ). If "the last byte" of space matters: also remove all the *.sh files for the removed components.

The only thing one has to be careful about: Don't delete system subfolders like e.g. /vlasovsoft/Qt/, /vlasovsoft/showpic/, /vlasovsoft/sleep/ ...! The latter contains the screensaver pictures in PNG format (600*800px, 4 bit grayscale). This is a feature I like excessively, though these are by no way bookcovers, but pictures I love personally, and which are chosen randomly by the Kindle in Vlasovsoft CR mode (like the standard screensavers wit "book/writing related" pictures in non registered Kindles). I believe that it's of no interest for persons sitting next to me in the train to know exactly, which book I'm actually reading - but maybe they like the nice b&w photos of landscapes and people on my Kindle in standby mode...

I was just in a bad mood that day.
It mostly has passed.

Hi!

Now all my open source applications are at bitbucket.org!

1. Open source applications, drivers, scripts, etc

2. My fork of Cool Reader engine

The sources are always UP TO DATE because I work directly with these repositories.

Though I'm not a keen beta tester I gave your latest build (2018.03.25) a try on my KT3.

Basically, CR works as expected, i.e. there's nothing broken relating to read eBooks with this low resolution "legacy" device. Except that a feature which I like very much doesn't work any more with this build: The user provided sleep pictures in /vlasovsoft/sleep/* aren't used any longer. Instead, the Kindle uses the internal standard pictures. (Of course I've made sure that I didn't overwrite my pictures in this directory while updating all the other files.)

And the clock display in the status line is 1 hour off with this build.

Also, another old bug is still there: Right after starting, the Calculator requires to touch "Clear" once before you can do the very first (algebraic) calculation. E.g. "4 x 5 =" will give the "result" 0 if you didn't press Clear before. Interestingly, functions (like sqrt and x²) don't require this additional step.

Reverted back to build 2018.01.23 ...

Thanks for feedback. I can't use the old screen saver because it doesn't work with KOA2

How about different builds then - one for the "legacy" Kindles, and the other for the KOA2?

And is is the only known "fix" for our add-ins to be used with the KOA2.

Hello!
Is it possible to edit the launcher settings for a different button layout (smaller width, and multiple items per line)? I need a table arrangement so that all the apps are visible without the scrolling option.
Thanks.

I have a KT2 (90C6) with 5.9.6.1 FW version. The "vlasovsoft-1.1.azw2" file was copied in the documents folder, but it does not appear in the book list menu (like KUAL). As KUAL isn't working for the moment, for every launch I have to use ;log run / kterm / launcher.sh script. Any advice? Thanks again!
