Re: High (fullscreen) resolutions

Before doing something as drastic as changing the computer, I would try first to see if the video card is properly installed/ works properly... ;)

Re: What are you reading right now?

Just now, I am reading the second book of the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, "The Restaurant at the end of the Universe". Pretty nice series, if you ask me.

After that, I'll read book 8 of warhammer 40000's horus heresy saga, Mechanicus :)

Love reading! 8)

Re: iPhone port of Wesnoth?

Problem with that is you'd lose all the keyboard shortcuts which is a huge part of wesnoth for me. You could always bring up the virtual keyboard but that's clumsy and way too time-consuming. Not only that, but the significantly reduced number of hexes on board as well as other visual limitations t...

Re: iPhone port of Wesnoth?

I am not so sure about the feasibility of wesnoth on such a device. For example, consider that wesnoth is usually played in relatively long matches, and that is a scenario that is not going well with iPhone: battery consumption would be an obvious example, then the fact that there is no backgroundin...

Alt tabbing out of game in Mac version?

Hello,

is there a way to minimize Wesnoth in the Mac version? (Please, if it is a general-mac-question, do not kill me... I am new to macs ;) )

TIA,

Polaris

I would also say C or C++... If you are looking for performance, then C with mixed assembly is the best choice, while using C++ will be easier and still keep excellent performances.

Anyway, keep in mind that making any kind of game is a huge effort.... :wink:

Desert Elfs in multi player games?

Hello, I just started playing "Under the burning suns", and I found it really excellent... So much that I want to use desert elves even in multiplayer games. Can I do this? I have briefly skimmed through the configuration panel for nultiplayer games, but I didn't find any sign of the desert elves (I...

First like often stated - non accelerated is slower by design. Animations do take longer. Agreed, but the game should not give the feeling of slow. Second, it seems like P4 for some reason is much slower then other archs. Don't know why. This should probably be investigated. Even MS VC6 allows for ...

Hello, I have been away from Wesnoth for quite some time, but today I downloaded version 1.1.8 for Windows XP (precompiled binaries). Apart from the great improvements that I have seen (last I tried version 1.1.3) I have to say that the whole game is __really__ slower. I am not referring to any spec...

windows binaries available: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/wesnoth/wesnoth-1.1.5-windows.exe?download Because of performance checking we tried to use two different compilers to see which one does the better job. Unfortunately one of them still seems to cause some "anomalies". I will update you ...

Excellent job with the new 1.1.1!! I am impressed! Btw, found a small bug and an "annoyance". * bug: whenever I am in a dialog / menu, I see another arrow in the upper-left corner like in the image * annoyance: in the italian translation, the whole main menu is translated EXCEPT the "help wesnoth" b...

Sorry if I am getting a little bit OT, but from the shots it seems that you're working on some RPG stuff based on wesnoth... What about this?

Yep Scott, definetly get Linux. One of the main reasons for this is virus/spyware/adware makers don't think about/understand/know linux . They make everything EXE files. So unless you have Wine set to auto-excecute, you should be safe in that area. (AFAIK). The main reason is that (sadly) LINUX is ...
