Unfortunately I wrote bad...
I recovered only the 2.85 and there's no way to recover any newer version unfrotunately...
So I'm going to recompile the 2.85 trying to add a new Exif TAG and than I'll upload the new/final version(at least till the next Hollywood version)...and try to start my new and completely diferent project...
The 2.90 changelog so too "Mystic" to remember what I do...and my ToDo.txt file was lost togheter newer LoView versions sources...

- Fixed a bug that prevent to choose the second function of the buttons with 2 functions on LoView, added a
- Ringhio notification(OS4 only) while LoViewThumb have finished to load the selected thumbs.

Yes I plan to recompile LoView with Hollywood X, the only problem was that I lost the post 2.90 sources and everything else so I dont remember wich differences have 2.91 against 2.90.
So I will recompile 2.90...

Hey Tuxcedo,
Glad to hear from you. I really like LoView but it does have the annoying requester on startup. There was an update to Hollywood, or was it MUIRoyale, that requires a recompile to avoid this requester at startup. Maybe the guys on the Hollywood forums could fill you in better. It would be great to have a recompiled version of LowView if you could do that. :-)
Comment by: Tuxedo ( 18 Sep 2023, 20:47File version: 2.91
Sorry for LATE reply!
Hope you solved the issue, BTW as mentioned on LoView.txt it needs:

MUIRoyale Hollywood plug-in to use the inbuilt Preferences editor

Simply donwload it from:


and enjoy!

plz answer to my reply at AW.

Thank you.

Thanks for the update but there is a problem. When I start Loview from Dopus to view a picture and then open LoviewThumb (Tools-Open Thumb...), the Ringhio notification shows up on the Workbench screen instead of the screen LoviewThumb is on. At first I thought the Ringhio notification wasn't working. When I tried LoviewThumb a second time, I switched to my Workbench screen and saw the notification there.

Thats weird...I dont get any error here...Can you tell me your system and maybe send me by mail a grab of your WB theme? A mail was also better for keep track of the problem, thank you.
Comment by: dan.hutch ( 26 Apr 2015, 10:46File version: 2.80
When trying to change the window size in the prefs editor I get this message:

Wrong operator for this type!
File LoView.hws (current line: 2010 - In function: p_eventi)

This happens when hitting enter after the number, e.g. 800. If I don't hit enter and just save the prefs the change doesn't take effect. Thanks!

Like the new editing tools, very handy!
Comment by: Daniel ( 07 Dec 2010, 19:07File version: 2.00
Has to be the best OS4 picture viewer. Pretty quick too compared with some other viewers, thanks Tuxedo!
Comment by: amigo1 ( 01 Apr 2010, 00:21File version: 1.61
That's great, Thanks! Looking forward to the new version! :-)
Comment by: Tuxedo ( 31 Mar 2010, 19:10File version: 1.61
Exif already works in my current beta(now I'm working on SlideShow support(50% done)), atm it mainly was used tio displays some info on screen(iif the user like it) and to display pictures in the correct orientation...the reading of Exif was rather immediate so no wait times for that :)
Save of Exif header was planned but not still in program, and at least not for the next forthcoming release(maybe around half of april)...
Hope that was nice for you :)

See you!
Comment by: amigo1 ( 31 Mar 2010, 11:11File version: 1.61
Thanks for the tool, works nice on SamFlex,
As a feature request, can you add EXIF support? Or please at least maintain the EXIF information while saving a file?

Comment by: Tuxedo ( 30 Dec 2009, 13:10File version: 1.01
AppWnindow support was already planned...
An eta however wasnt possible atm...

Thanks for feedback!

Comment by: scriptjester ( 30 Dec 2009, 07:30File version: 1.01
Nice, because it's light.

Just one feature needed : drag a file directly in the program window must open the picture.
Comment by: Tuxedo ( 26 Dec 2009, 15:09File version: 1.0
That's not possible...
Hollywood resizable windows wasnt real resizable windows...
So Only fixed size windows...possibly of various sizes but unfortunately not fully resizable...sorry.

PS plz go on with testing :) and report any issue...

Comment by: root ( 26 Dec 2009, 12:53File version: 1.0
Hey itz a rly nize t00l!
I hope a resizeable window is coming up next ;)
thx thx thx
Comment by: Tuxedo ( 23 Dec 2009, 21:18File version: 1.0
I'll look for that :)

Comment by: kas1e ( 23 Dec 2009, 20:36File version: 1.0
But if i not want to select a file ?:) Usually many ppls want to browse all the directory (that avoid also searching of "that file somethere in that directory").

Imho will be cool to make it in 2 ways:
1. if directory only choicen - then show all the picts from the first one
2. if file are choicen - then show that file first, and then, all the files in that dir.

That will be solve all the problems for all the users :)

@ Lio

In next release I think it was been here...however I think to add the function in that way:

- You select one file than my prog will scan the dir(and maybe recursively) but starts to display from the picture choosen firstly...

- The loop from brginning will be here too why asking if loop or not..

- In the future I like to add as many filters and other little editing functions I can...also a save button naturally...Hollywood was excellent to do that work and was slightly fast as you can see using my little prog... :D

Ideas and any other feedback will been apprecated! Better if you cn send it to me by pm on AW site...so I can track it easly...

Thank you ALL!

Comment by: Lio ( 23 Dec 2009, 19:43File version: 1.0
Thx !
+1 with kas1e suggestion : user should only select the directory, if this nice proggie is meant to be a picture viewer !
Comment by: Tuxedo ( 23 Dec 2009, 16:49File version: 1.0
thanks and GOOD WORK!
You plyaed with it really much :)
Your suggestiond was also on my todo list :)
But now I'm on vacation(until dec 28 evening) so I cant do anything atm for suggestiond bugs...
The first bug you encountered was here maybe becaus eI made some lasy minute changes yesterday before start my vacation...sorry :P

The other bugs:

For the first I've to investigate more...
The second maybe realted too by the latest minute changes...

However thanks for the feedback!

I played with it more (just browse many files, press all the buttons, etc), and after some time it crashes:

Crashed process: LoView (0x6298FC60)
DSI verbose error description: Access not found in hash or BAT (page fault)
Access was a load operation

If you will provide a debug version, i can say where is bug.

Also i found one more bug with resizing:
run programm, choice any picture, then "down" 5 times, and then up 5 times, and on last one (when image must be placed like it was for the running), you will see, that image centered bad (just centered to the left side, with empty space on the right area).
Comment by: kas1e ( 23 Dec 2009, 13:03File version: 1.0
To be clear about "remember" directory, i mean when you rerun the programm (i.e. exit and run it again).

Also will be cool if you will add things which are on "up/down" to the +/- on standard and number keyboard.

And maybe a little bug: when you run programm, but choice nothinkg (not files to show), and then you press button for autofill on fullsize, then you have:
Table filed 0 was not initialized!
File: DisplayImmagine.hw (current line: 1152 - In function: p_calcoloposizione).

So, you need to handle that one too and say to user window like "you have no picture to show, why you want to fullscreen?" or just swith to fullscreen without image..
Comment by: kas1e ( 23 Dec 2009, 12:57File version: 1.0
Works fine, Hollywood prod :)

The software itself are very-very nice by idea, becouse it's very-very simply. You just run, choice the directory and watch the picts. Good that it have "left-right" for the swith images. At moment i have only 2 suggestions for you:

1. Make it "looped". I.e. when i coming to the last picture, make it autoswithched on the first one again.

2. When you choice directory where is pictures placed, you need select the picture, that is wrong. User need only go into directory and press ok (without selecting the files).

And one more addition (not sure through it's related to your programm, or to OS itself) : Will be cool if the last directory will be "remembers". Becouse for example when i want to open new directory with pictures, i again have default direcotry of the programm.

And the last, but very-very big for work suggestion: maybe add some kind of easy directory layout navigation to the programm ? I mean just new window, which you can switch on-off , where you can browse the directoryes for the images. Somethinkg very-very simply, very-very primitive, but which you can click by mouse and fast navigate beetwen.

Anyway, Keep up the simplicity for end users and nice work in future :) (ACDSEE will suck something after a while :) )
