Elta 8882: new firmware with national characters support

Hello,

I want to inform you, that I prepared new unofficial firmware for Elta 8882. This firmware is based on official 2.0.4.0 release and adds support for central-european characters on DivX/XviD subtitles according to Windows 1250 charset.

Regards,
Thomas

Now, only central european Windows 1250 codepage is supported. I plan to add new charsets, including Windows 1251. I work on new tool for fonts converting. When it will be ready (week?), I will be able to create new mods much faster. If you want to try yourself, you can download a good font editor from my website and draw cyrillic characters. But I have to say that it will take you some time - you have to draw every cyrillic character by hand.

Hi, tomb!
From your experience, do you think that is possible to add suport for subtiles for the elta 8883 (MediaTek MT1389DE chipset)? I need the Central European support.

And I have another question: Centrum Gemini 330 can display subtitles with diacritics in Romanian language without and . Is any possibility to fix that 2 missing characters?

10x.

Subtitles will be added in the new official firmware release. At least I found such statement on the feature list, which leaked to the Internet. But I doubt if we will see support for Central-European characters.
Fimwares for MediaTek based players are harder to change - they are not Linux filesystems as software for Sigma Designs based units. Of course font bitmaps must be hidden somwhere inside. But I don't have Elta 8883, I don't analysed it's firmware and I'm not sure if proper font definitions are stored in current firmware release.

Can you give any link to the firmware for Centrum Gemini? Is this player based on Sigma Desings EM8500 chip?

Tomb
