Sniper is available in the MoDaCo software store.

http://fairdeal.modaco.com/product.asp?id=6822

As for the registry tweak I am only aware of it working on the MPX220, I have not seen reports of it working on other devices.

ok you can get it from www.smartphone.net

and when installed you have to goto your phone settings and untick recieve incoming beams this allows sniper to take over the recieving for you also you will have to tell sniper where you want the incoming files to go you can do that in the settings menu on sniper.

There is one thing that is really buggin me though. On my orange phone when i have chosen/type in my number to dial and pressed the call key a 'blue' screen with the ornage logo at the top appears

i have tried to find the source of this gif in the registry but don't seem to be able to locate it

Any ideas wher it could be and how to get rid

Cheers

Hi

You will find it here for INCOMING calls :

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell\Rai\:Callalert]

"BKBitmapFile"="\windows\Watermark_Incoming.gif"

either change registry to another file / path, or edit the existing gif

image size is 240*266 on QVGA smartphone (240*320)

For OUTGOING, I've changed an other file, but not in registry this time :

\Windows\C600_DialScreen_8bit.bmp

I just replaced bitmap by another, full color with same name.

maybe name will not be the same depending of your device....

Hey scudo, thanks a TON for that!!!! Worked great!!!! I didn't have the registry key for the INCOMING, so I had to create it. The image for the OUTGOING file on my US T-Mobile SDA was \Windows\cprogback.png

Hi yoos

U're welcome. for outgoing, it might be interesting to find registry key, it must exist I think.

if you want, here are keys for changing other screens :

Go to :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shell\Rai

main keys list (":" is part of the key..) :

- :Callalert (incoming call)

- :ErrorBox (when you have an error message)

- :ExclamationBox (exclamation message)

- :InformationBox (information message)

- :MSBranding (operator logo - pin code screen etc..)

- :BrandingBox (operator logo - ?)

- :MSCdial (operator logo - composing a number)

- :MSClog (background image of call list screen)

- :QuestionBox (question message)

- :VolDlg (backgroud image when adjsuting sound level)

for all except the 2 of operator logo, you put a string value "BKBitmapFile" with the path or your image (mostly 240*293px).

for operator logo pic, size is 240*27px

for :MSCdial & :MSBranding, string value name is "BannerImage" instead of BKBitmapFile.

be sure to put images on device and not on storage, cause they are readen at bootup, before accessing the storage card...

Check out my tweak to get rid of the Hotmail and Outlook accounts. Possibly a good idea to quote it with this list?

HEEELLLLPPPP...

I am having issues putting ringtones on the sd card, this is what i did:

1) I created a folder called 'ringtones' in my storage card folder and put a file called ringtone.wav in there (with this name i can change the file without changing the reg if i want to change the tone, correct?)

2) renaed the string in the reg to /Storage Card/ringtones/ringtone.wav

then called myself using the housephone and my phone just beeped at me - no fancy wav..?! :)

when i lookkd in settings>sounds the ringtone for line one was 'alarm 1' should it be? THen when i looked in the reg the string had been renamed to 'alarm 1" (which explains the last bit..)

any idea what i have done wrong?

cheers guys - you fountains of all knowledge you...

where do I go to modify that?

I did this and swapped the image, but the text is black on an incoming call. Anybody know how to change it? I'd like for it to be white so it's consistent with in-call.

I've been trying to change the call images on a Qtek 8500(HTC star trek) and had no luck so far... It doesnt have the BKBitmap value on :Callalert. I added it though. The weirdest thing is that when putting the path of the cprogback.gif pic it works, and when putting any other pic doesnt!!! ;)

Also having problems when trying 2 back up the cprogback.gif in order to replace it with an other one with the same name. It wont copy (or cut) and paste on the pc!!! Is it coz it is located in the ROM?

Midnight, I am new to this editing sort of thing. I just got a blackjack 2 and everything is fine, but the sms vibration lenth is way too long. I found this on the internet

"Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Sounds\SMS create a new string value called Script and in the value data put v#. The # is the number of seconds you want it to vibrate for. To create a new string, right click on sms and choose create new string."

I did this and set my vibration length to 1 so it would only vibrate 1 second. it worked but it changed my setting for text on all profiles. I changed my profile to normal and it still vibrated instead of playing the text alert i have set. Can you help me fix it to vibrate for 1 second on texts only when my vibrate profile is selected?? Can you help please Midnight?

Josh

midnight has not been around for a while now and so may not reply here.

From memory (it's been a while since I played with the registry) the vibrate settings in the registry are a global setting and not profile related. Have you checked your other profiles to see if they are set up correctly?

On my devices also the paths \Storage Card\My Documents or \Storage Card directly (not advised) are searched for general ringtones. For individual ringtones you may have to stay with \Storage\Application Data\Sounds\

The above applies for my WM5 device - so it may not work for yours.

Any damage caused by using any of these tweaks (however unlikely that may seem) is your sole responsibility, it aint my fault guv, ok

note: all of these tweaks will survive a reboot unless otherwise mentioned

LATEST TWEAK

ActiveSync Name Tweak

Wanna change the name of your phone for ActiveSync?

Go into RegEdit and change this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Ident

Select 'Values'

Select 'Name' (sometimes theres 2, dunno why, just edit any)

and change the Value Data to the new name for your phone (no spaces)

Next time you plug in yer phone, ActiveSync should connect as normal, but the name will have changed.

START MENU TWEAK

Start Menu Order

This tweak changes the order in which you have the programs listed in the Programs menu.

Oh, before I tell you how to do this, this is the answer Orange gave (source: Orange Website):

The list of items is in alphabetical order, apart from the first four items - which are fixed. To change the order of non-fixed items, hook up your Orange SPV to your PC, explore to the IPSMWindowsStart menu and change the names to start with 1 - or a -.

Hehe, yeh, good one orange, I think you'll find its the first six items, not four, and two of those are 'Orange Backup' and 'Orange Update'. Now lets do it the correct way ...

Open up Regedit, and browse to the following:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Shell/StartMenu

Select 'Values'

Select 'Order'

In the value data you can now change the order of the links in the start menu. The easier way to find the link names is to open up All Explorer, Smartexplorer, or even browse to the phone via the computer, and look at the files in 'IPSMWindowsStart Menu'. Don't forget to add '.lnk' at the end of the program name, or it won't work.

If you want any of your own custom links, just make sure you put them in the IPSMWindowsStart Menu folder.

Now you must reboot your phone for the changes to take effect.

HOMESCREEN TWEAK

Most Recently Used

Ever wanted to change the default icons of the MRU? (the icons displaying Inbox, Contacts, Calendar, Internet Explorer etc)

Fire up RegEdit, and go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Shell/StartMRU

Select 'Values'

Select 'InitialOrder'

and now just change/add to the links (see the Start Menu Order Tweak for info on links in the IPSMWindowsStartMenu folder.

SOUND TWEAKS

Correctly Looping Ringtones

This is a tweak I think should be standard on the phone, especially for wav files

Normally while playing a wav or midi as the ringtone the phone has a delay of 3 seconds before repeating, now this is really annoying if you've just created that great wav ringtone, spent ages making it loop properly in cooledit or whatever, and then the SPV does the silly delay, well, heres the fix...

Open the registry editor:

HKEY_CURRENT_USERControlPanelSoundsRingTone0

Select 'Values'

And modify 'Script' by removing the w3 (eg. change 'av0pw3r' to 'av0pr')

And thats all there is too it

Ringtones on SD/MMC Card

Open the registry editor:

HKEY_CURRENT_USERControlPanelSoundsRingTone0

Select 'Values'

Select 'Sound' and change the Value Data: Storage Cardpath to wavwavname (eg. Storage CardRingtonesmyringer.wav)

Just remember not to delete the ringtone off the storage card, cos otherwise the ringer will default back to a boring midi again.

System Sounds

There are many sounds that you can change on the phone, including dtmf keypad tones (the tone it makes when you press a number while dialing), the startup sound, menu popup sound etc.

Below are the instructions how to change these, and many more:

First of all, grab a voice theme from here and copy the sounds across to your phone (preferably the storage card).

The next thing to do is to turn the keypad tones on by going to Programs>Settings>Sounds.

You'll notice that after you have made this change the really annoying keypad sound has come back again, so lets turn it off...

With the Registry Editor, change the following:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Sounds/Keypress

Select 'Values'

And modify 'Script' by removing the p value (the value should now be blank)

Now lets change our first Dtmf tone:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Sounds/

then choose your Dtmf number (0-9, also # and *)... Dtmf0, Dtmf1 etc

Select 'Values'

Rename 'Sound' to 'Sound2'(or somethin, doesnt really matter, but better than deleting, just in case you wanna change it back at a later date)

Select Menu>New Value>String

Value name: Sound

Value Data: pathname of the wav(eg, i have installed the sounds onto my storage card in a dir called keypad, so, value data: Storage Cardkeypad1.wav for Dtmf1)

and just repeat for all of the keypad tones ( you can actually speed up the process by copying and pasting the values and just changing the wav number).

Other sounds that can be changed are:

'battery.wav'

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Sounds/LowBattery

'sms.wav'

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Sounds/SMS

'mail.wav'

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Sounds/E-Mail

'menupopup.wav'

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Sounds/MenuPopup

'menucommand.wav'

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Sounds/MenuCommand

'alert.wav'

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Sounds/SystemExclamation

'info.wav'

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Sounds/SystemAsterisk

'confirm.wav'

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Sounds/SystemQuestion

'error.wav'

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Sounds/Warning

'callerror.wav'

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Sounds/CallDrop

(make sure category is set to InCall)

'dialing.wav'

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Sounds/Dialing

(make sure category is set to InCall)

Sounds better than the nasty standard keypad tones eh!

If sound still doesnt work, make sure your system sound is set high enough in your profile... (programs>settings>profiles, menu>edit 'normal' profile, System Sound Volume, i use Loud, but set it to what you see fit)

Please note, going into the Settings>Sounds menu may reset some of these values (especially the warning sounds), keypad tones survive, but, the darned keypad tone is lost, so you'll have to change that to tone, and remove the 'p' from the keypress registry key as mentioned above to remove the annoying keypress click.

Of course, you dont need to use all of these if you dont wish, it's entirely up to you

Looping Alarm

Want the Alarm to loop indefinitely? (watch yer battery tho)

Use a registry editor, go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER>ControlPanel>Sounds>Clock

Select 'Values'

Then select Menu>New Value>String

Value Name: Script

Value Data (for no vibrate): apr

or

Value Data (with vibrate): av0pr

If you want to add a delay between each ring add 'w(delay)' before the r(repeat), for example:

av0pw3r would have a vibrating alarm with a 3 second wait before looping the ringtone (both wav or midi)

If you want to revert back to the normal alarm ring then simply delete the 'Script' value.

System Startup Sound

This is similar to all the other sound tweaks on this page, except for one difference....

THE WAV MUST BE ON THE PHONE, NOT THE STORAGECARD (nice capitals there so you can't miss it)

I presume the reason it must be on the phone is because during bootup the SD card slot simply hasnt been initialised at the time we need to play the startup sound, maybe someone could confirm this.

Anyhoo, fire up the registry editor and change this key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Sounds/SystemStartup

Select 'Values'

Select 'Sound'

Change Value Data to the path and name of your wav (eg, if you save the wav to IPSMWindows then the value is simply IPSMWindowsblah.wav, where blah.wav is the name of your wav file of course)

IMAGE TWEAKS

Changing the Operator Logo (Dial and In-Call)

WARNING: watch what you are doing with this, cos i managed to totally reset my phone, incluing turning certification back on, so change this at your own risk

Theres two operator logo's ('orange' on my phone) you can change that are displayed while typing in the number, and the logo that is there while in-call.

The logo size must be 176 x 20, and the file must be a GIF file.

And the file MUST be on the phone, NOT the SD card.

And here's the Registry Setting:

The Logo that appears while dialing:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Shell/Rai/:MSCdial

Select 'Values'

Select 'BannerImage'

and change the Value data to the location of the logo (eg., IPSMdial.gif if the logo is saved in the IPSM folder and is called 'dial.gif')

The Logo that appears while In-Call:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Shell/Rai/:MSCprog

Select 'Values'

Select 'BannerImage'

and change the Value data to the location of the logo (eg., IPSMcall.gif if the logo is saved in the IPSM folder and is called 'call.gif')

you have to reboot your phone now for the changes to take place.

Skin More Screens

It is possible to change the look of the phone beyond the standard homescreen by doing a few little reg tweaks, example......

screens.jpg

note: the xbox skin is used a demonstration, and i would now like to credit jay-z2k for this skin (something microsoft forgot to do at a recent demonstration).

all modifications are made by myself, and none of these screens will be given to anyone without the permission of jay-z2k (although, to be honest, i'd prefer him to make the screens himself :wink: )

note: These images MUST be on the phone for the same reason as changing the operator logo as explained above. Also, all images must be the correct size and a .gif file.

Here is a zip containing Photoshop templates for each of these screens.

The size of the images is always 176 x 180, however, it appears to work for smaller images as they appear to be aligned bottom right on the screen.

The Error, Exclamation. Info and Question dialogs appear to be basically the same, and consist of a title and information. It is best to make sure that the lower part of the display is kept as clear as possible as text may fill the whole of this area depending on the appliction.

Lets edit the registry...

Open up PHM Regedit and change the following values...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Shell/Rai

and one of the following:

:Callalert (used for incoming calls)

:ErrorBox (used for error messages)

:ExclamationBox (warning messages)

:InformationBox (information screens)

:QuestionBox (when a question is asked)

:VolDlg (for the volume control)

select 'Values'

select 'BKBitmapFile'

and change the path to that of your image (eg. IPSMvolume.gif)

If you want to change skins at any time you may want to reset these values back to the original default screens, these are:

:Callalert windowscall.gif

:ErrorBox windowsyell.gif

:ExclamationBox windowsyell.gif

:InformationBox windowsinfo.gif

:QuestionBox windowsques.gif

:VolDlg windowsvolume.gif

and thats all there is to it, have fun.

MISC. TWEAKS

Totally Useless Tweak

Want the phone to vibrate every time you open a menu????

Use the Registry Editor and edit the following:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER>ControlPanel>Sounds>MenuPopup

Select 'Values'

Then Menu>New Value>String

Value name: Script

Value data: av1p

To revert this back to normal then simply delete the 'Script' value

By the way, the v1 in the script value is actually a longish vibrate, you can change this value if you wish, but i found 1 being the best value, 2 is too long, 0 is too short, and anything higher than 3 is just plain daft.

This tip works with every sound event on the phone, including the KeyPress event, altho i wouldnt recommend it (maybe thats just a little too silly)

For up-to date tweaks, check out my site :wink:
