You can test it by showing both timers on the main page, and set them to start by throttle (Ch1 on the default).
After start it will show 0/9, 1/8, 2/7, etc seconds.

yep. that is because int(-0.9) == 0
and int(9.9) == 9

so if a countdown timer starts at 10, it will immediately switch to '9' (since it becomes 9.9) whereas a countup timer will switch to '1' 1 second later. This is how stopwatches work as well...

for the countdown timer, goingthrough 0,you see the same thing.
It goes 1.0 -> 0.9 -> ... -> 0.1 -> 0 -> -0.1 -> ... -> -0.9 -> -1.0
you will see values of 1, then 0 for 2 seconds then -1

It may be better if it showed -0 once the values went negative

Yep. That is what I thought...
I just wasn't sure if it is normal or not.
Tomorrow I will check the original, how does it do it.

P.S.: I've just got my Ladybird! :woohoo:

I did make the timer switch red as soon as it crosses zero (as opposed to at -1)

Well, the original fw is doing the same, except that there the two timers are not even in sync, and after the countdown has reached 0, they countinue with a + sign instead of -, to indicate the you are beyond that preset time...

Ok, I think what we've got is sufficient then. I'm going to bed now, but if you find anything else to change, just let me know. I have no other planned changes at this point before the alpha release at this time. I've merged your changes.

I would like to modify the icons. I've already prepared them, but I only can do it at home in the evening.
I hope you will like them...

I didn't dare to modify your plain ad heli picture, but there is some purpleish cast on the background. Is that intentional, or just a result of some bad color space conversion?

Neither. It is me being color-blind and not being able to tell. You can change the icons however you like, we just need to use free-to-distribute images. I got them here:
www.iconarchive.com/show/transport-for-v...helicopter-icon.html
but I don't really care about them as long as we can distribute them legally.

I'm planning to announce the 1st (emulator only) release tomorrow. Right now, I'm basically focusing on administrative stuff...getting binaries ready to go, updating the main website page, etc. I still need to swap out the 'toggle' icons, but any other gui related changes you want to make we should get done today if we want them in the release tomorrow.

Oh yes, I wanted to adjust the main page widgets a bit, but that is not essential, probably I won't have enough time for it before release...

What is a "single-tick"?
Backslash still doesn't work on a hungarian keyboard...

Nevermind, I found it in the code...

So the ' doesn't work either...
On my computer the keyboard.exe shows \ and ' in the event_text, not in the event_key, which the code examines.
