Re: Ideas from trying out 4.1.1.0, slow motion button, vsysnc, descriptions, etc...

Yes, that's how it should work now. (At least with your tape and debug key definitions. Most key shortcuts don't care if they are pressed together with a modifier key at the moment, so if you have number keys defined for the tape recorder and debug keys disabled, they would also trigger with modifie...

Again, this one, which I was now able to reproduce: ctrl-1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 9 always seem to select one of the speed choices. (Hitting one of them twice puts you back to 'normal' speed, I believe whatever you configured in Setup > Game & Menu > Game speed.) But ctrl-2, 3, 4, 5 seem different. 2, 4 and 5...

Re: How to draw a level sketch? Read on! :-)

Regarding web server and phpBB3 speed: Every 'preview' action takes something like 10-20 seconds. I've verified that my net connection is performing normally; either this host's net is slow or it's lugging for some reason. On my side, pressing the "Reply" button on your last post reproducibly takes ...

Re: How to draw a level sketch? Read on! :-)

Although a bit late, this patch will be in the next version, with a few additional enhancements: * Ctrl-c will copy the current level (or brush, if selected) into the clipboard. * Ctrl-x will also copy the current level (or brush), but as small sized level sketch. * Ctrl-v will paste a level sketch ...

Re: Problem with DBUS

Great to hear that R'n'D is now running fine on your system! I hope that the SDL2 libraries will soon be updated on Ubuntu to versions that do not have these strange DBUS problems, but I'm afraid that this won't happen very soon. :-/ There is only one detail: There is no background music. ...

Re: Testing some stuff once again...

Is this a modified version of RnD that contains these enhancements? Where can it be downloaded from please? You don't need a different version of R'n'D, just the level set Eizzoux created. Can't wait to actually try some of this... The level set is attached at the end of Eizzoux's post, just downlo...

Re: Global anims on title screens

The issue here is that global animations are displayed within the playfield area by default, so they get clipped outside. This can be changed using the following additional directives in your graphics config: global.anim_1.TITLE.class: window global.anim_2.TITLE.class: window global.anim_3.TITLE.cla...

Re: Testing some stuff once again...

Wow, that's impressive use of graphics configuration tricks! 8)

BTW: The second one only works really well with the following little bug fixed in "graphicsinfo.conf": Replace "global.forced_scroll_delay_value" with "game.forced_scroll_delay_value".

Well done! :D

Re: Ideas from trying out 4.1.1.0, slow motion button, vsysnc, descriptions, etc...

SETUP -> GAME & MENU -> GAME SPEED/EXTENDED SPEED... The order of these two should be reversed? EXTENDED SPEED then GAME SPEED, or better just have one GAME SPEED menu with everything in it. The intended order is "normal settings first, advanced settings following after it". The reason for being ab...

Re: Ideas from trying out 4.1.1.0, slow motion button, vsysnc, descriptions, etc...

In versions <= 4.1.0.0. 'keyboard button 3' could be used as a slow motion toggle. Hmm, this should only work when the program was compiled with DEBUG defined in the Makefile (which is usually not the case with release versions). So either there is a bug in my packaging script, or you have used one...

Re: Problem with DBUS

This error message comes from SDL_image, complaining that it cannot load PNG images. This is most likely caused by a missing PNG library (libpng) on your system. The solution should be to install the PNG library and header files from the systems package manager (should be something like "apt install...

Re: Problem with DBUS

Hello mrcoar, welcome to the forum! :-) Regarding the problem you described, I have no idea at all what might cause this -- R'n'D does not actively use that D-Bus library in any way (in fact, I just had to ask Google what the heck this might be). :-o The only thing I could think of is that R'n'D use...

Re: EMC levelsets use incorrect artwork definitions

OK, I've changed the image format for the EMC collection from PCX to PNG. Interesting result: This increases the size of the resulting 7zip archive (from ~20 MB to ~25 MB)! The reason is apparently that re-compressing already compressed files with a strong compression algorithm (like 7zip's LZMA alg...
