How to use emulator to test this plugin (for devs)

  1. Download Logitech GamePanel Software 3.06 drivers (I used 64-bit as I have 64-bit Windows, but maybe will work also 32-bit version):
  2. If you use newer Windows than 7, you have to open Properties of the downloaded installer and set compatibility mode to Windows 7, otherwise it won't let you install it.
  3. After installation some program in tray is automatically started, just ignore it, that's not the needed one.
  4. Open C:\Program Files\Logitech\GamePanel Software\LCD Manager\ and start LCDMon.exe here, it will show you new icon in systray.
  5. You have to hold Ctrl+⇧ Shift and do right click on that icon, then you will see in context menu items "Create emulator for external (color) LCD display" – the not-color is for G15, color is for G19, Miranda seems to support both.
  6. Start Miranda with installed MirandaG15 plugin and in Options / Miranda G15 / Appearance select at the top you should see in combobox "G15" or "G19" devices. That means it works.
Note
You need to have Miranda platform same as the installed drivers, so if you installed 64-bit drivers like me, you need to use 64-bit Miranda too, otherwise you won't see the keyboard in that combobox.
