Re: Recommended video format

If MP4 playback is very slow on 68k, try to use the FPU version of the avcodec.hwp plugin. This should speed things up a lot because I think the MP4 decoder uses floating point math a lot.

Re: Issue using usb serial devices in MorphOS and AROS

Ugh, this is embarrassing. Apparently, support for specifying the device name and port in portname$ as described in the documentation of OpenSerialPort() was never implemented at all on Amiga. But there's a history entry about it so it must have been implemented once but it probably got lost during ...

Will using a lowlevel.library replacement have any effect with Hollywood?
Like NewLowLevel found on aminet.
Nope, the Hollywood's Amiga backend only supports 7 buttons, no matter what lowlevel.library is installed.

Re: Designer Crashes

Ok, so this is caused by a buggy patch from the 90s called MagicASL that is used by AmiKit. I've tried it on my clean OS 3.9 installation and as soon as MagicASL is active, I get the very same crash. As I described earlier, it's very likely that MagicASL doesn't check for buffer overrun before copyi...

Re: Reversed Audio Channels

It's a little bit confusing. I just want to make sure the end user gets the right experience. It's important that the sound direction corresponds with what is happening on screen. These are audio streams (ogg format). I'm working in Designer 6 at the moment, is there a flag to set when compiling fo...

Re: Reversed Audio Channels

This could be related to the fact that Hollywood runs in a special legacy audio mode on 68k by default. The reason is that this audio mode is less heavy on the CPU, especially when it comes to Protracker playback. You can force Hollywood to use the non-legacy audio mode on 68k by starting it with th...
