Re: show stats of to-be-replaced tape

I definitely see how this can be useful. One problem when implementing something like this would be the fact that the request dialog can be freely redefined in "graphicsinfo.conf" (especially regarding its size). Regarding the two different variants with "replace partial" or "replaced solved" tape, ...

Re: undoodily doodily

Using "Ctrl-Z" for "undo" in the level editor sounds reasonable. Also "Ctrl-Shift-Z" for "redo" sounds logical and familiar to me. Regarding "Ctrl-R" for "redo", I'm not totally convinced, as this seems to be handled differently by various programs. (In web browsers, it is "reload", while "redo" in ...

Re: Why won't alternative art work?

Hi... my daughter just ran into this! Her machine's running R'n'D 4.0.0.2; mine has 4.1.3.1. In both cases, both levelsets 'Might of Elementals' & 'Might of Elementals II' crash with 'Floating Point Exception'. Eeek! :shock: `make gdb` no longer seems to work: Apparently file "GDB_COMMANDS" was nev...

Re: Can anim_mode=ce_value only display 2048 out of 9999 possible images?

Checking your example I realised that graphics for a CE may span multiple lines in the png. Yes! You can even specify ".frames_per_line" if the graphics file itself is wider than the area that contains the frames. I just used one (very) long line, so my png was 10000*32=320000 px wide and 32 px hig...

Re: Can anim_mode=ce_value only display 2048 out of 9999 possible images?

Welcome to the R'n'D forum, Vroom, and sorry for the delay in approving your first post! :) This also works to an extent, but the anim_mode feature seems to wrap at 2048, even if I specify more than 2048 frames in graphicsinfo.conf. So 2048 will display the same image as 0, 2049 same as 1, and so on...

Re: crash when built with -DRO_GAME_DIR=something

Yeah, right -- this (a function than may return a string constant or string copy) was always wrong, but did not cause much harm as long as the result was never properly free()'d.

Fixed using your patch! Thanks!

Re: Stretching dynamic window for debug testing?

No, there's no such debug switch so far, but your request seems to be so obvious that I wonder why I did not think about this by myself when doing my own tests with dynamically sized windows. :shock: Going even further, when using an artwork set that supports dynamically sized screens, there should ...

Re: What if Deflektor had some elements from Mindbender

Well, looks like for now I can't do explosion animation for an individual MM/DF element since only kettles has their unique animation. Unfortunately, yes. However, what you can do is using "[mm_default].exploding" to redefine explosions for all MM and DF style elements. But the MM/DF game engine st...

Re: What if Deflektor had some elements from Mindbender

Wow!! Really cool graphics and music! I hope your "Reflektor" level set will be finished and released soon! :D

It think it should then be prominently featured at the "Levels & Artwork" and the "Mirror Magic" pages! :)

I especially like the MOD music -- could you please post the playlist? :D

Re: More customizations for global anims

I'd like to encourage you to update the git repository more often; not just at major releases OK, I'll try! :D Usually I do push recent changes and additions from time to time, not just for major releases, but sometimes I just forget doing it. You seem to keep meticulous records of what you change,...

Re: More customizations for global anims

Haven't checked these issues yet, but you might like to check them with the latest development version. Not sure if it changes anything in this regard, though. Will do some checks for myself soon...
