AIDA64 Plugin for AlphaCool LCD

Recommended Posts

got an issue here were i can not mirigate to AiDA64 from Everest, due to the AlphaLcd software needs a plugin to detect AIDA64, will the new AiDA64 natively support the Alpha Lcd? i have been messing with the acEverest.dll But no joy sad.gif ,not really good in that department wacko.gif .

i am stuck to how to sort this big problem, as i use this screen and Everest all the time and i want this AIDA64 to correct a few bugs with the current I7 setup ect i have now with the old everest.

anyone?

We currently have no plans about a native AlphaCool LCD support. Do you know who made the Everest.dll module?

:wacko:

It was a 3rd party developer called Sonic on the alphacool forum, but this has been down for Quiet a while, Sonic did all the software and plugins for the Lcd screen then charged a small fee to Alphacool, Sonic was really helpful on that forum for support and plugins Gutted, i even emailed Alpha about this issue, been trying to mess with the plugin but i am getting no were, as i am pretty much useless in this department, i bet the Dll only needs updating/adding just to detect AIDA64.

Can you please post a download link to the acEverest.dll file?

this is the latest alphaLCD_1.0.4.48_beta software i got off Sonic from the Forum (1.5 was coming:() and the acEverest.dll that is in the install, which i added to this rar (extracted to save time), the 1.02 that is on the Alpha download site is very old and buggy, basicly useless if your not pachent with this .. i have uploaded this this 1.0.4.48 on 2 sites (google) as you can not get it anywhere , must add it helped a few out there.

Thank you. However, it doesn't seem to work even with EVEREST v5.50 (latest version). I'm not sure what's the trick there, but this plugin seems to be a bit crude. Is there any AlphaCool SDK or programming documentation, so we could make an AIDA64 plugin from scratch? :mellow:

No problem ..

and thats the updated Plugin, but it does work without issue on Everest 5.50 , in everest Preferences and external applications you tick (enable) all 3 boxes and all other box's, you only need to tick one but i forgot which one a while back lol, then you restart Everest and then run Alpha lcd then setup Everest in the alpha software.

that would be a great ideaB) but i have never seen an AlphaLCD SDK , Even googled for it, another reason why i am gutted the Alpha forum is down.

In order to let us come up with our own AIDA64 plugin for AlphaCool, we would need either:

1) The source code or the uncompressed DLL image for acEverest.dll,

or

2) Guidelines (SDK, programming documentation) on how to develop a new AlphaCool plugin from scratch

what do you mean uncompressed DLL image ? not seen any guidelines or SDK mate.

acEverest.dll file is compressed using an executable compressor. I think it's ASPack. In order to give you hints on how you can patch the DLL file to make it suitable for AIDA64, we would need an uncompressed DLL file.

not got that , only what i uploaded, i was using PE Explorer and there is a Decomplie , so you have to extract the files to mess then compress it just like ZIP/RAR in a way?

----------------------------------------

i did find this a while back but i am not 100% sure what theses files are for?

Uncompressing an ASPack compressed EXE/DLL file is not that easy I'm afraid. You have to use Google to find a tool for that -- but those tools in many cases simply fail to work :)

That's for Linux, it's not useful for us :(

Try this:

aspack unpacker

How can we know if a dll reverse engeniring works? so I can test some unpackers an try to provide the unpacked dll you need to build the plugin we need.?

here are the sample code to get the values stored from Everest in the shared memory (file/options/ext. Apps/activate shared memory).

The alphacool app reads ist from there.:

Const

sharedmem_name = 'EVEREST_SensorValues';

Function ExtApp_SharedMem_ReadBuffer(bu:PChar;bu_size:DWord):Boolean;

Var

mappedData : PChar;

th : THandle;

Begin

Result:=False;

th:=OpenFileMapping(FILE_MAP_READ,False,sharedmem_name);

If th<>INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE Then

Begin

mappedData:=MapViewOfFile(th,FILE_MAP_READ,0,0,0);

If mappedData<>Nil Then

Begin

StrLCopy(bu,mappedData,bu_size);

If UnmapViewOfFile(mappedData) Then Result:=True;

End;

CloseHandle(th);

End;

End;

The only difference to AIDA64 is this:

Const

sharedmem_name = 'AIDA64_SensorValues';

An example of read values is attached:

thats the code of the plugin to read the values wich are puts in the shared memory by everest/aida64.

no, I'm unable to disassemble the .dll, understand it, change it and reassemble.

first the plugin must find the running aida and then locate the shared memory of it and

then periodictly read the values.

ah right so if that code was made into a plugin this would work then ? how did you come acreoss this code then if you could not get in the everest DLL file?

same here getting nowhere with the original plug-in :D , wonder if Fiery could make that code into a plugin ?

      Hello,
       
      Currently trying AIDA64 before buying the software. At first look the software is really good and everything what i need is there. Except one thing. 
      Under "Hardware Monitoring > LCD" there is an "SteelSeries" entry but when activating the error "HID device 1038-1730 not found" is shown. Is the "Apex Pro Keyboard" currently not supported and/or are there plans to support it in newer versions? Or is the error on my side? (SteelSeries Engine is running and recognises my keyboard)
       
      Thanks for your help.

      A big hello to the developers, followed by a question:
      Any chance to add LCD support for Elgato Stream Deck?
      https://www.elgato.com/en/gaming/stream-deck
       
      That would be nice...

      Hey there,
      I replaced my old Z10 with the new Z10 RGB.  When i try to enable the LCD i get:
      Error: HID device 3842-2601 not found.
      I have the latest beta installed (sept. 16).
      Cheers!
