When I first started on the carpc, myth .18 was the
latest/greatest. This meant no touchscreen support at all. This is why I
fabricated the control panel next to my shifter. It registers to the
system as a USB keyboard. See the archived photos:
It works, and I
was able to make it look factory, but ultimately I'd like to do away with
it and be 100% touchscreen controlled. Obviously there is plenty of work
that needs to be done before that happens.
Anyone know the
status of mouse control in Myth ? Is there a plan to make it 100%
mouse-only compatible ?
