[GUIDE][SOURCE] Retropie SUPER OSD

Post by razer.93 » Sun Jan 07, 2018 2:41 pm

Hi guys,
I recently completed my second build featuring a DPI screen (https://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=4745) and, as I was forced to design and write my own OSD software ( :roll: :roll: ) due to unavailability of other open software... (thanks for spuring me :D )
Well, here we are :)

Here I'm presenting my very personal vision of how an OSD should be:

The OSD is composed by two files:

- monitor.py: a simple python scripts that manages the osd binary; reads the informations from the pro_micro and updates the overlay efficiently.

-osd binary: the low level binary it self

In this constellation the python scripts runs and drives the binary by sending commands through the stdin of the C program, so of course you can use the binary in a standalone fashion (the osd sleeps until it receives a SIGUSR1 signal).

You can find all information, sources and whatever here:

If you find my work useful and think that it deserves it, please support me by making a donation. Nothing mandatory, you are free. Any amount will be greatly appreciated. :D

Happy FREE OSD everyone!

At the moment the project it's at a really primordial stage, the code it's quite horrible don't judge me that bad please

I like the use of reading STDIN when the interrupt is fired, perhaps I can include that in mine when it open sources :) I notice a huge amount of similarities in how you have organised the software interactions so glad I could be of help there as that's the only place it could have come from haha ;)

Do you plan any additional features to what the SAIO one does (the more debug info is useful)?

Since a huge amount of your code was not available I think that my work simply comes from good coding and best practices ;) , moreover I don't even see any lock mechanics in your code such those I used to increase the polling efficiency in the python part.
I coded this in a couple of days, feel free to copy all you need :)

Of course I'm planning to add a bunch of completely new feature and redisign some essential parts as soon as I have some spare time.
Who knows maybe even before the new SAIO releases, so also your customers can benefit :D

Stay tuned.

Look forward to see, you can see the original in a month or two time as I'll be publishing mine at that point as i have been updating it for the new release and need to make it open source :)

Thx for sharing
But the osd documents don't include osd binary file
And the lib documents not include compile lib file
Do you share it
Thx
