Major New feature: Stock & Cryptocurrency Charts
Game Frame can now display real-time stock and crypto charts using multiple render modes and time intervals. Control the amount of time each column represents using your system timer (the setting that normally controls how often animations change). Selecting infinity will cause each column to represent a single day, so you can see 16 days into the past. Select between area and candlestick render modes using the NEXT button on your remote. You can select your stock or coin by accessing the web backend (type your Game Frame ip address into a browser) or by sending "coin" or "stock" to the exposed Command function, followed by the symbol (BTC, LTC, AAPL, etc.).
Animations can now use a fade-in effect when changing. This is turned off by default. Set a global setting by adding a "fadein" key to your WIFI.INI file on the microSD card inside 00system/wifi. Set the key value to a number of milliseconds, such as 1000 for a one-second fade. You can set lengths for individual animations by adding "fadein" to any animation CONFIG.INI file. This will override the global setting.
While in FX mode, you can now control which effect is running using the exposed Command function. Using the Command function explained in the Wi-Fi Adapter docs, send the argument "effect" followed by a number 0-13, representing the effects in the order they appear. For example, to run the Matrix animation, you'd send "effect 12" to the Command function.
Additionally, the internal web server should be much more robust. Hopefully it won't crash after losing its network connection anymore!
How do I perform an update?
Simply download the .BIN file above and then use the Game Frame firmware manager to perform a wireless update. Login to the firmware manager using the Particle credentials you used when first installing the Wi-Fi Adapter. If for some reason you can't get Game Frame online or you can't login, you can always put the Wi-Fi Adapter into DFU Mode and perform the update over USB.
