Re: Hollywood on different systems speed comparison...

The MorphOS version doesn't use any optimizations which could cause this so the only explanation is that the MorphOS core components are faster than their OS4 counterparts.

Re: Little windows on a main program

Yes, just use SelectDisplay() to redirect all calls like MakeButton(), DisplayBrush() etc. to a certain display. It will interact nicely with the other windows.

Re: Bug / No obvious solution

The code is much too long, please try to break it down to an absolute minimum. In your code there are dozens of things that could cause problems, that's why I always need absolutely minimal source snippets. I specify a display 1024x768, does that include the title bar and the surrounding edges? No, ...

Re: Little windows on a main program

That's easily possible. Check CreateDisplay() and OpenDisplay().

Re: How to prevent running multiple instances?

Hmmm, an idea would be to create a Rexx port and exit in case it is already existing. But this will only work on Amigas.

Re: Special Characters (Fonts)

All ASCII characters are identical in UTF-8 so you only need to create special codes for non ASCII characters. You can look up these codes using Google or use a text editor of your choice and save the text in UTF-8 and then look at the text file using a hex editor. The copyright sign for example has...
