ChessClock is a software chess clock. It also can be used together with a digital camera or webcam to take a picture of the board after each move so that positions encountered during the game can be revisited.
Computer\HKEY_USERS\[some guid]\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Nimisis\ChessClock(Vista and later). If you just installed ChessClock and cannot find the registry, try restarting your computer.
CAM_REFwill usually be set to 0 but if a user has plugged multiple webcams in their machine in the past, the ID of the webcam in the windows registry might not be 0 (and they see a black window as described in Q8). In this case experimenting by setting this variable from 1 upwards should allow the user to find their webcam. If 1 through 15 fail then I would assume there is another problem/bug.
DELAY_DELTAto be used in a later version.
DELAY_TYPEto be used in a later version.
DIRspecified the directory to store still images and time lapse videos.
LTIMEtime in seconds for the left user.
RTIMEtime in seconds for the right user.
RESOLUTION_REFwhen set to
0gives a resolution of 320x240. 1 gives 640x480. 2 gives 960x720. 3 gives 1024x768. Further resolutions have not yet been implemented yet (but if you need it get in touch).
Computer\HKEY_USERS\[some guid]\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Nimisis\ChessClock. This can also be found using "Find" in regedit. If you just installed ChessClock and cannot find the registry, try restarting your computer.)
A computer, an image capture device such as a digital camera or webcam (ChessClock can automatically detect and work with most image capture devices), and a video codec that will compress the final movie to a reasonable size. (Your PC will probably already have such a codec.)
