Re: Improved Anim support

Thanks for the reply. I am aware of the methods you mentioned, indeed I am using them in my test application already. I was mostly looking for a way to make things faster (if possible) for 68k, though I realize it's probably not going to happen as you say. I tried different methods, but none produce...

Re: RapaGUI related improvements

Thank you for the clarification regarding the xml definition, I wasn't aware of these possibilities actually (should've done my homework I guess). Especially option 2 seems to be exactly what I'd like to have, so great news! :) I agree that since these options exist, Hollywood should not enforce a s...

Improved Anim support

It would be nice to have better support for ANIMs, similar to the way that Videos are handled. Currently, we can either: Load and start playing an anim but then we have no way of updates (e.g. progress slider), events or canceling it while it's playing. We have to wait until it's finished. Or Load t...

RapaGUI related improvements

Now that the RapaGUI plugin is available, I think we have a great tool for multi-platform UI design. I would like to suggest a few improvements which I believe would make things even better: Integrate the XML GUI definition file(s) in the final executable, so they don't have to be supplied separatel...

Re: RapaGui Win32 chm - Help

Although this is now resolved, just a hint in case it helps someone in the future:

Newer versions of Windows (from 7 onward I believe) block access to CHM files if they are located in a network drive. Only local CHM files are allowed to be opened.

Re: Customising Notepad ++

From what I saw, it's basically the same as the UltraEdit wordlist (i.e. it has syntax highlighting, coloring, etc). As in UltraEdit, you'll have to manually add an entry in the menu to run your scripts from within the editor, if you wish. Combined with the superior text editing functionality these ...

Re: Customising Notepad ++

Thank you for the link! :)
I was also testing UltraEdit, but personally I prefer Notepad++ as the programmer's editor of choice.

Re: FileRequest mask for "All Supported Files" ?

Thanks for confirming this!
I noticed that it works as expected on a real Amiga, using the same code.
Perhaps it's limited to Windows platforms (I didn't test Mac/Linux or others yet).

FileRequest mask for "All Supported Files" ?

I've been searching for this but I couldn't see that it works - perhaps it's not supported? When I open up a FileRequest() with a specified pattern, say "png|jpg|jpeg|iff|pcx|bmp", I get a requester which has each file type listed in a dropdown list separately. What I would like to have in addition ...
