Hello everyone… that’s right… Here’s a link to the source code to my most popular internet program… the LCARS Operating System Shell Source… completely FREE of charge… Do what you will with it… Just please mention where you got it… danielheth.com This source code is for Visual Studio 2008… has lots of warnings regarding functions not returning values because they should really be subs… but just ignore them… open the “LOSS Core.sln” solution file… it links a bunch of different projects together… lots of DLLs.
UPDATE: If you’re looking for the installer for the latest release, look no further… LOSS2005.zip
Where can I get the program and not the code?
Jon, visit http://www.lcarsdeveloper.com for a downloadable/installable version of this program…
Where can find the code?
The source can be found in the link above… which points to http://bitrac.com/LOSS2008.zip
Hi, The download appears to be broken, Is there another link around?
Fixed the link, sorry bout that… 😉
Hey old friend. I see the LCARS designs are still up. I’m back in FL. ( Gotta love the ocean views ) I been trying to call you for about a year.. Hope your ok and doing well. Good to see the site is still running. 🙂
I guess ye took the website down? Firefox says the source code zipfile doesn’t exist anymore…
http://bitrac.com/LOSS2008.zip doesn’t work.
It says the page cannot be found
http://bitrac.com redirects to
https:// secure website requiring a login?
What happened to the webshare concept anyway?
Perhaps the source code is still there but the webpage error handler is bad?
I was gathering notes and heavy digging found a
specification for the lcars curves, colors and layout.
Ok, the developer site has the standards BUT even the link to LOSS2005a is broken.
you find a Loss (?) and Loss demo 8 ?
Then, navigating to:
you find s_lcarsdeveloper.zip
Ok, i’ve fixed the link to the source code and added a link to the installer.
Once DNS updates the links should start working again.
The LCARS stuff is on the back burner due to my new job, thus i’m workin it as i have time.
What is everyone interested in here? Is it programming controls? LCARS related source code? the program itself maybe?
Let me know what everyone is after here and i’ll see about adding additional content related to it.
Does anyone still have a copy of LOSS2005a.zip?
Sorry, i’ve been forced to move a few times and i had to cancel the server that i was using to host the zip files.
The files have been fixed and are now back online… enjoy.
I have DL’ed all the files, then extracted all files. But there is no, ‘Run’ program… Currently, all the files for this is in my, ‘Downloads’ section. Why is there no run Icon? I would appreciate any assistance. 🙂
Within the LOSS2008.zip file is the Visual Studio 2008 source code to the very latest version of the program. It includes lots of controls and such to allow you to keep developing.
Inside of LOSS2005a.zip is the installer version for the newest release (IE: last release that was made) of the installer for the program.
Anybody interested in providing me guidance in developing a Windows 8 LCARS interface? What would you guys want it to do?
I have rebuilt STEngineer.com website… have fun there.
I have just started work on LOSS 2012. It will be an exclusively x64 bit version and built upon .NET Framework 4.0! Good things coming down the pipeline this year!
I just found your site – and am impressed with your programing so far. I am excited that you are building a LOSS 2012 on the x64 bit platform. It should be very cool.
Was wondering if you have intended in building a working OS like the lcars system. I’m sure you have thought it would be WONDERFUL to have the real deal –
I have played a bit with the various free OS’s that are out there on the net. Even loaded a stripped down version of the Android OS onto a pc. Very hard to use that way – but it worked.
REGARDLESS – Wanted to say – GREAT JOB. If I had any programing knowledge – I would deffinatly try to help or offer tips and advise – BUT I DON”T – so I just have to admire what you have done.
Thanks for keeping this going.
Would it be safe to assume that if I’m running Windows 7 64 bit I should wait for your improved version of Loss 2012? I’ve been a fan of Star Trek for over 35 years and would love to have a functional version of the lcars interface running on my desktop box!
Welp… if you ever wondered what happened to LCARS Operating System Shell… look no further than Copyrights…
To learn more:
Hey, what a lot of memories this brings back 🙂 Long discussions about LCARS merits over ICQ many moons ago. Still digging LCARS, I love tinkering with it still.
Hello there, I have visited your site a few times and I am a big fan of the LCARS system.
I have been looking for a good LCARS shell for quite some time but alas I find that most are just not upto scratch. I did manage to view your demo of the LCARS LOSS 2005 program which I found rather exciting. I now see that you posted that you were working on a new updated version (LOSS 2012) Did you finish it and is it available? (I hope so)
