That's cool. As I said I'm making the suggestion from a position of ignorance, so it doesn't surprise or disappoint me that it's not feasible.

The last thing to suggest, I think it's been done before, is a potential Android App version of the Companion. Just make it one size and tell the phone to stretch over various display resolutions itself. That way you don't have to try and accommodate each resolution manually

I am actually looking into an android edition. iOS is completely out of the question, for those who may be wondering; iOS is a major hassle.

Yes, resolutions are definitely an issue. I'll see what i can do, when i start it.

I need to set up an android environment first, which i haven't done.

Also, latest versions of DPC are now on Source Forge. Windows and linux, anyways. Working on mac now.

Indeed. Funny story: When testing notifications, a friend of mine actually went online playing Chu Chu Rocket. I didn't even know he'd be online, till i saw the 'xxxx is online' notification! So, i messaged him and we played for a bit. :)

It's very handy, and convenient; You can turn the sounds off, if you'd like as well. Any player you favorite will have notification pushes.

Enjoy.

It's operating just great. Haven't tested notifications yet as nobody is online, but look forward to seeing how they pan out :)

Sailfish isn't possible, at least not at this time. The language I use only has compile ready support for windows, os x, Linux, raspberry pi, Android, ios, emsripten and ppc. I could try to port the raw assembly, but it's far too extensive. Assembly is massive, in lines of code. The language I use supports a few architectures, including arm, so maybe. I will ask around.

The other day, I tried dreamcast.now on mobile, and it works. So there is that, but you don't get the extended features of the companion.

My apologies in advance:

Apparently, i over looked two nasty bugs when testing notifications:

- If you only have 1 user in your favorites, you don't get a notification for them
- If you only have 1 user in your favorites, and you un-favorite them, a 'glitched' notification appears; app crashes when the notification finishes

I'm so very sorry to everyone. I know constantly downloading software is annoying, especially since 1.0.0 was supposed to be the, (for what i foresee), current last version of DreamPi Companion until Kazade changes or adds something and either DPC breaks or can support a new feature.

These programming errors have been fixed and 1.1.0 will go live right now. Please wait about 20 minutes, from this post. Upload order will be Win32, Linux then OSX.

Thank you so very much for using DreamPi Companion and for understanding my mishap. I'm human.
