Evoscan to Logworks Converter
Posted by 640774n6 on May 12th, 2014
While learning to tune my Talon using the Evo 8 ECU, I found I didn’t like the log viewing in Evoscan. Don’t get me wrong, Evoscan is super powerful and other than needing to update/change their icon (winxp connected world icon), I think it’s a great piece of software. I found that I liked using Logworks to view my logs recorded with Evoscan.

After some Googling, I found a number of projects that would do the conversion.

The first was an online implementation. You upload your log, it would do the conversion, then give you a download link to the converted file. It did work, but I found that it would fail sometimes and you had to have an internet connection which isn’t optimal for huge logs.

The second was a project on Google Code called evoscan2logworks. It uses some vbscript and html to do the conversion process in Internet Explorer. This was also very buggy and complicated and required Windows and Internet Explorer which is definitely not an optimal situation. I’m not a fan of any software that requires Internet Explorer…

So after trying out all of the available solutions, I decided that it was necessary to roll my own. I just wanted a basic C code CLI. Evoscan logs go in, Logworks logs come out. So after a few nights of coding and testing on various log files, evoscan_logworks_conv was born. You can also find the source on Github here.

I find sometimes that the hardest part of a project is choosing a name. I like to have a name set before I write any code so that I can keep a consistent naming scheme (NextStep: NSObject, NSString, ect). I spent sometime coming up with the name “OBDroid”, but it would seem that it is already taken. So I spent even more time and renamed the project to “DashDroid”. This time doing a google search before writing any more code.

Above is the latest screenshot of the UI implemented and running on my android tablet. As you can see the UI has changed a bit. Functionality is coming along. Finished “blind coding” the OBD2 stack tonight, I just need to test it (Of course its going to work first try! I mean, come on, it compiled!). So after I work out the bugs with that, I will just need to code the “WTF” Diagnostic Trouble Code Reader / Clearer. All in all, I’m pleased with it so far. Will be a sexy addition to my Talon’s dash once it is finished.
Exposed 0.8.2(Mega Pug) Released
Posted by 640774n6 on December 14th, 2012
Made a few changes to Exposed. Added customizable VNC port via settings plist (requested by @jamie_shaw). Also gave it the ability to check and update the settings plist if necessary so that when a new version is released, it will update the plist to work with the new version rather than crash. Have fun!
Exposed 0.8(Mega Pug) Release
Posted by 640774n6 on September 25th, 2012
Just released a new version of Exposed that includes: Compatibility fixes for iOS 6, Updated libvncserver to 0.9.9 which has all sorts of speed improvements as well as enables Apple’s builtin Screen Sharing application to finally work, and finally, I added a default password for liability reasons. Default password on new installations will be “exposed”. Super secret, I know. The source code has also been updated on my github. Enjoy!

Exposed 0.7(Spider Kitten) Release
Posted by 640774n6 on April 6th, 2012
Just released a new version of Exposed that includes compatibility fixes for 5.0+ as well as merged in some long due fixes provided by @nitoTV so don’t forget to show him some love. Also from the source code side of things, I added a project build script that copies the bundle bin to a dylib and plist making it easier to test builds. Happy Easter!
