Updated 12/19/06

Version 1.4 uploaded.

Added preview overlay in subscription screen by pressing "Info" on the Firefly remote or by pressing "I" on the keyboard. Preview using a mouse is not currently supported until I learn how to override the mouse events in BM correctly.

Added Dilbert and English version of Calvin and Hobbes.

Added missing gocomics and removed comics that do not update regularly (Bloom Country, Citizen Dog, Minimum Security, Reynolds Unwrapped) because the plugin uses the current date as the baseline for downloads. (Sorry Mamba ). Fortunately, Calvin and Hobbes updates using the current Month and Day but the year is still 1995 so I can hack it around a bit.

Any bugs/requests for version 1.5?

Re: [plugin] Comics Revived (December 7 Update)

For version 1.5, I am going to look into adding comics from comics.com. They use a more complicated archiving system, similar to the way Dilbert is archived. So when I figure out a way to generalize it like I do with gocomics then I'll add many more comics such as Peanuts and Opus.

This is great, I'm thrilled you got Calvin & Hobbes sorted out and Dilbert added. However, could you possibly add another key for the preview? There is no Info button on the Firefly Mini. Could you maybe use one of the number keys? Or Guide? Or any other key that works with the Mini....

Not a problem. Let me know what the best FF Mini key would be. I keep forgetting about that remote.

Re: [plugin] Comics Revived (December 7 Update)

I'm thinking the Guide button would be the most logical. It doesn't seem to serve any other purpose inside BM anyhow.

Try this version: http://www.x-89.com/BMplugins/Comics.bmplugin (Version 1.4.1)
I mapped F7 (which I think is the Guide button on the Mini) to the Preview.

That didn't work..... I get the preview when connecting a keyboard and pressing I, but nothing happens with the Guide button on the Mini, neither does pressing any other button...

Btw, minor issue with the preview though... on a widescreen display the preview is badly stretched. It looks fine on the regular comics screen.

Ok, then I was wrong about the mapping. I'll try and find out what key is mapped to the Guide button on the mini. Can you look at your Firefly mini mappings XML file to see what button is mapped? That would help.

About the widescreen, I was able to replicate your issue. I'll fix that for you.

I haven't been able to find any mappings file for the Mini. I've tried to google it as well, but no luck.

The mini is very lacking in configurability...I've already.

Look at Stephane's alternate software for the mini...should be able to map a desired button to F7 with that.

Re: [plugin] Comics Revived (December 7 Update)

I've installed and configured Stephane's profile app for the mini (what a fantastic piece of software!), and I have mapped my Guide button in BeyondMedia to the "I" key, so I now get the comics previews just fine. Problem solved!

Re: [plugin] Comics Revived (December 7 Update)

Excellent! I am going to remove the F7 reference now. Still haven't gotten to the preview window stretching bug yet. It's Christmas weekend so I won't be coding anything
