Location of custom GCModels on android?

Where do I place my custom templates on my android-phone so GCStar Viewer can use them?
I've searched all over the phone but can't find it.

Re: Location of custom GCModels on android?

Hey guys!

I have a HTC Desire with Android. On my mobile it works great. To explain how it works I first have to explain how I have it on my PC, that's very important for success:

...\GC Star\bin\Cover

So, and now I have taken my .gcs file on my sd card and in the same path the "bin" folder. Looks like this:

...\sdcard\DVD's.gcs
...\sdcard\bin\Cover

It's very important, that you put the files in the same path on your mobile, which you choose on your pc. And also important: Do never ever change the path, not on your PC, not on your mobile.

Re: Location of custom GCModels on android?

I've got GCModels in two places at my machine, first stock ones in gcstar install path and then custom ones in home folder;
~/.config/gcstar/GCModels/
/usr/share/gcstar/lib/GCModels

I've tried to add custom model templates in various places in my sdcard, none works. Tried:
/sdcard/custom.gcm
/sdcard/gcstar/custom.gcm
/sdcard/gcstar/GCModels/custom.gcm
/sdcard/gcstar/lib/GCModels/custom.gcm
/sdcard/gcstar/lib/custom.gcm
/sdcard/GCModels/custom.gcm
/sdcard/usr/share/gcstar/lib/GCModels/custom.gcm

So, still no luck.
Where should I place custom GCModels?
I've searched my phohe for *.gcm files but cannot find a single one.
Who made this android port? That person must be able to answer.

Re: Location of custom GCModels on android?

Oh, sorry. I thought you've talked about the DVD Covers and the .gcs file.
But I can't imagine you can use models on mobile GC version. Do you have seen the mobile version before? There's no graphik what you could change with a custom model. It's only a list auf Movienames....or one DVD cover next to another. There's no interface.

Re: Location of custom GCModels on android?

Yes, I know how the mobile version looks like, I'm using it.
I don't use it for movies. In my collection there's a text list with all items and when those are clicked I get text info on those items.

Problem now is I can't open collections that uses custom Models, like my View Master collection. It's not a custom gui I'm after, its custom fields in a database. Should be possible with the mobile version.

Re: Location of custom GCModels on android?

Hi, all

I have same problem : "standard" collections exported in .gcz work, but custom ones do not.
The sources are here http://svn.gna.org/viewcvs/gcstar/viewer/, up to now I have not found anything related to problem in them.
I suppose that the equivalent of GCmodels or .config are somewhere in Android, perhaps in some unattainable  system place ?

Should you have a problem using GCstar, you can open a bug report or request some support on GCstar forums.
