More Stream Deck Icons

Just in case you've missed them, Elgato has many more icon designs and backgrounds than what appears in their default library and they have really snazzed up my keys. There are many more than the ones I've downloaded (below)

    You can also make your own icons using a graphics editor like MS Paint or Photoshop. I usually make mine 144 or 288 pixels square and save them as either JPG or PNG format files. A nice touch is a border or frame with rounded corners. A little experimentation will let you find the correct corner radius. You can also incorporate ham radio-related graphics from apps you use or through online search. Here are a couple of samples, a frame with an arrow graphic that I found online and a Flex "swoosh":

    Limited only by your imagination. It is often useful to add text to the graphic, which lets you re-use the graphic, with custom text overlays created by the Stream Deck software, for multiple functions.

    I have created more than a hundred such graphics for my Stream Deck, and it results in a very attractive, totally personalized setup.

    Also we’ve done som cool things using SVG graphics based on work done by Tormod, LA9VKA.

    For whom is interested in it, I just trayed the StreamDeck+, unfortunately the FRstack3 plugin is not compatible with the knobs, and, at the present time, there are very few plugins capable of interacting with the knobs. I returned it.

    I’d be curious as to how the knobs would work with Node Red? For example, how does it allow programming of the knob’s encoder and what does it send out?

    I have to see if ElGato allows installing the software and selecting that model.

    Elgato has yet to update their developer document to include the knob stream deck.

    If it follows the other API examples, the knobs will output some sore of JSON object, which I hope includes an impulse generator/counter of some sort.

  • If this comes to be a viable/usable product, it could replace the Maestro by using this and a tablet/iPad as the Maestro is only a tablet with added usb boards.

    When remote I normally use an iPad Pro with a Belkin 11 in one breakout USB-C box. The Belkin box has a TRRS jack that works great with the RadioSport RS55SL headset.

    I wonder how the new ElGato controller enumerates in Windows. That will be determining factor on usefulness. HID devices are harder to integrate with Node Red

    I have ordered a StreamDeck+ in order to investigate the level of effort in order to integrate FRStack3. As soon as I have time additional information I will update the community.

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for keep maintaining and supporting FRStack.

    Please note they are having issues with some plug-ins running with the new StreamDeck software version 6.0.1, which is the one needed for the + model.

    I think FRStack is one of those. It became extremely slow with this new version.

    Maybe you need to investigate that as well.

    For everyone else, please consider I'm having problems in rolling back to 5.3, the backup didn't work. I'm in touch with the Elgato support.

    If you do not use the + model, no need to update and I suggest, indeed, do not do it!

    No problem with version 6.0.1.17722 and FRStack here. Running the 15 key keypad.

    @N5NHJ is there a repo with those beautiful button images?
  • N5NHJ
    N5NHJ Member ✭✭

    @W1SRD Do you mean my StremDeck profile?

    I built those buttons, and I can share the whole profile if you like.

    @N5NHJ, I would appreciate a copy of your profile and button icons. Santa brought me a StreamDeck for Christmas and appreciate help from the community to get started. It's the XL version not the "+" model.

    I would also like to have a copy of the full profile and perhaps a legend of what is available.

    Thanks

    @N5NHJ, yes, that would be great. I forgot the icons are contained in the profile itself.
    w1srd at arrl.net if it's not too much trouble.
    Thanks/73

    OK, I'm not sure if I can do it by tomorrow. If not, I need few extra days because I'll be on a business trip.

    I'll upload everything to Dropbox, and I'll post the link here.
