AIDA64 Plugin for AlphaCool LCD

Recommended Posts

Yes me too. It would be grate to make Alphacool work again. That was its crucial functionality for me and many others. Now the plugin doesn't support last edition of Everest neither Aida64. I'm really looking forward to see this plugin.

Any news/progress on this one? Because without aida64/everest my LCD panel is just something that unnecessarily consumes energy without a purpose.

As I've stated above:

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

I have absolutely no idea on both of these. Why dont you try to contact with alphacool? They should be able to guide you on whatever you need!

Please see post#3 above by Namuk.

Also, I was wondering if there were or could be any plans to introduce support for the all-in-one water cooling solutions on the market. Antec and Corsair have similar systems made by Asetek. They seem to work with people really well so maybe they would even provide a plugin or something. Just a though.

I attached a pic of the software that comes with the antec 920 that I own. But Corsair also has their own systems with the Corsair Link software that maybe could be integrated. It would be nice to just use the Aida interface instead of all the ones I have to use. Thanks Much!

Good idea, although please note that Corsair Link is not officially released yet. We're working with Corsair on implementing Corsair Link support in AIDA64. We'll contact Antec to find out if we can do the same with their products as well.

Thanks,

I know this is an old topic but the solution could be simple:

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:

Since Aida64 is essentially the same application as Everest and since there is no way to obtain the source files for the alphacool applications/plugins etc. why not add an option in "AIDA64 / Preferences / External applications" saying "Report as Everest_SensorValues to shared memory" or "Make values AlphaLCD Compatible" or something similar.

AlphaLCD is getting data from everest up to version 5.50. so my guess is that would do the trick.

I'm sorry for the delays, but this improvement didn't quite fit into our development schedule of AIDA64 v2.70. But now we got back to it, and implemented it as a non-GUI option. What you need to do is upgrade to the latest beta version of AIDA64 Extreme Edition available at:

http://www.aida64.co...03vxqt5pcb3gzip

After upgrading to this new version, make sure to restart Windows to finalize the upgrade.

Then start AIDA64, go to Preferences, and simply press the OK button, and close AIDA64. Then go to AIDA64 folder, open AIDA64.INI, and scan the file for the following line:

HWMonSharedMemName=AIDA64_SensorValues

You can edit that line to make the shared memory facility of AIDA64 compatible with plugins made for Everest ;)

I'm sorry, but I cannot phrase that more clearly in English, I really did my best to make it clear. Please use Google Translate to translate it to your native language.

Totally do not know what to do. Please explain exactly how to run the show on the Alphacool readings from Aida. None of this I do not understand. Do I need to have installed Everest and aida 64 and where the swap file?

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your help.

1) You don't need Everest anymore

2) You only need the new AIDA64 beta:

http://www.aida64.com/downloads/aida64extremebuild2320tjb6lpwyzxzip

 

3) Start the new AIDA64 beta, go to Preferences, but only press the OK button there. Then close AIDA64

4) Go to AIDA64 folder, and find the file called AIDA64.INI. You need to edit that file, using e.g. Notepad

5) Inside the AIDA64.INI file you need to change the line:

HWMonSharedMemName=AIDA64_SensorValues

In that line you need to change AIDA64 to EVEREST to make the new AIDA64 compatible with AlphaCool. So the line should look like this:

HWMonSharedMemName=EVEREST_SensorValues

I'm afraid I cannot use better or more basic English than this :)

Try to rename AIDA64.* files to Everest.* Maybe AlphaLCD is looking for a process called Everest.exe?

      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!
