I'm confused... I might aswell just put everything there... or increase the entries per lurker.
Also, when job/university gives me a break ill get some icons.

Was thinking in terms of Japanese culture, but sure let's go with that.

That's "Yondaime", meaning 4th Generation. Nidaime is 2nd.

I dunno where i should post it. i'm no expert in programming so i can't help much in the project. But i would like to help with some idea.

i have seen this in other epub reading App (like aldiko : https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... ko.android). They use the volume buttons of the phone to change the page or scroll down and up. I think if it can be added, it would be very helpful (to read usig only one hand)

thanks for your hard work

That's a good idea, but we are aiming to keep it simple (doesn't mean it might get implemented).
But the guy to give the final word would be nandaka, since i haven't had the time to be much helpfull in coding due to do my university "screwup strike",
And he's a mage at java.

If you have any icon idea we're glad to see into, even if you think it might not be good, it actually cna help us have ideas =)

About a name... I believe Baka-Tsuki is a must in the name... and as it is for for android platform i'd go with either baka-tsuki droid or baka-tsuki movil.
one thing tho. The old reader have a lil problem while rotating the phone as it does an auto-zoom (at least in my phone) which make me lose the place where i was reading :D. If u guys can add something like a marker that shows the line you are reading just like the one thats used with real books, either that or at least make it so that the zoom will keep the 1st line showing as the 1st line...

The new app doesn't do auto zoom when rotating, but the text will be re-flow-ed because of the difference of width. This is the default behavior of WebView in Android.

This one is difficult to be done. Also the most I can do is on paragraph level and as long they use
Code: Select all
<p>
tag to denote the paragraph. Probably I need to inject a marker/id to the tag like:
Code: Select all
<p id='p1'>...</p>
, but I don't know how to track the shown paragraph except you tap the paragraph so the application can record it...

Yah, I was thinking it was going to be kind of hard, because checking how was the text before the flip seems kind of hard to do I will look at webview, not like I'm a master programmer but I do learn stuff kind of fast, if I find a way I will make sure to tell ya.

Well, knowing the height scrolled since the beginning of the page and the actual size of the text, you may find the first line showing on the screen, no ?
I know you can find the height easily (getLastYScroll or such), but for the size of the text in pixel, I don't know... :?

Ahaha, I got a name, but it's for the i-stuff, so not for android, what a shame :x

I'll finish the submission and create a pool in 2 days (22/11)
I will also be getting my hands on an icon, so maybe i'll show it.
And, if you have any idea for an icon description, please post =D. Anything will do. I'm not the most creative guy, graphical design related.

PS: installed Windows 8, then after one week got cute blue screens of death and lost almost everything on my HD from reinstalation. =(

Ah I know this... Wanted to install Win8 on my laptop to try it out... Found it awful and missed too much essential drivers :evil:
So had to revert back to my Win7, hopefully I had made a full backup before updating it :? I'm so happy to have done so...

I didn't had an external hdd. Also, the problem came as a surprise, everything was fine... critical hit.

Windows 8 is pretty cool, making a straight up upgrade is not recommended. (i'm still using it)

Also im taking measures for the pool creation.

http://www.facebook.com/groups/Baka.Tsu ... 753705892/
