Using multiple instances, and gauge resources?


Recommended Posts

hi all, newbie here! this is my first post so i hope it has landed in the correct place..  be gentle!

i have installed the 'simple' version of a64, is it possible to run multiple instances of the sensor panel? i have the sensor panel running in a 5 inch screen located inside my case but have a room change planned which will put the case high on a shelf out of my eye sight so i would like a second display for stats placed under my main monitor. i plan to use a larger screen say a 10.1 'ultrawide (if thats the correct term) as i like the extra real-estate. what are my options?
on a similar topic, is it possible to create an 'unpublished' senor panel before removing the currently used panel? or would i have to save the current panel to file or something then start a new panel?

also can anyone point me to gauge resources, ie pre made gauges? or an easy to understand tutorial for how to diy them? total novice here, but can follow an idiots guide!

i have included the final evolution of my first attempt using the provided gauges etc, it took me ages to get rid of the green dials.. i finally gave up trying to figure it out in a64 so i just changed the hue on the 5inch monitor lol. really hoping to learn the skills to create something like i have seen on here.. some really nice work on the share your panel thread, some of those must have taken ages!!! impressive. 

any advice greatly received, but remember your talking to an a64 absolute novice!!
Thanks folks.

1) Multiple SensorPanel instances aren't supported.  If you're adament about that project, then there're 2 options: you can either get two external displays like the ones made by BeadaPanel, and then you can use the AIDA64 LCD module that supports multiple devices. Or, you can get one external display where you can use the LCD module; and you can have a display that you connect as a monitor where you can use the SensorPanel.  In other words: multiple layouts can be achieved along with the LCD module that supports multiple devices; or by combining the LCD and SensorPanel modules with a mixed hardware setup.

2) We don't design, create or manage gauge resources, so you gotta rely on the community, e.g.:

Just a thought, in Windows Display Settings could you have your existing Sensor Panel screen to the right of your main screen/s and your new 10.1 inch screen located directly below that, then design a Sensor Panel that is the size of both screens combined, so it is effectively spanning both screens (even though they are in physically different places).

      Custom gauges are not working in the sensor panel.  Default ones are. 
      I made some custom ones where I just changed the colors of the default downloaded ones.  Added them to the custom states.  They pop up for a second then disappear only leaving the icon and text.  Tried downloading ones other people have made and the same things happen.  Might appear for a second then disappear then come back for a second go away again and not come back.  All are pngs as specified.
      Its a 5" raspberry pi screen.
      Was going to use for CPU and GPU temp (3900X - RTX2080)
      Let me know of any ideas to try or info you need.  If its not something off the top of my head have to respond after work.
      So far really disappointed.  Wanted to make some custom files, I do not like the defaults.

      Hi, i have the following problem that when I insert a png image on the sensor panel that it comes to an error.
      I do not know if there are certain requirements for the insertion. Or wheter you can increase it ?

      Is it possible to use 2 (or more) LCDs display different data?  Example: #1 for essential CPU etc while a #2 would have cooling info like fans, liquid temps etc.  If so... what are some recommendations?  Keep hearing Beada (which could work).  Alternatively, is there a larger compatible LCD?  Ideallly bar style but 17-18 wide.
      TY in advance for any guidance!!
