Re: 2 Questions about BGPic-Function

How to create an offscreen BGPic? Is the meaning of offscreen here, drawing to a non-visible-area (left, top, down, right of the actual screen) or is this something like a double-buffered area? The Manual didn't describe this and even the Example of BGPic there doesn't work and ends up with a "Didn...

Re: Simple effect and maybe a bug ?

Tested it on MorphOS 2.7 and it's working fine. Maybe it's a bug in 1.4? I don't have a 1.4 system anymore so I can't test it there.

Re: Hollywood on different systems speed comparison...

No, this would have to be done in C or Assembler.

Re: Simple effect and maybe a bug ?

On what OS's did you try this? Does it only happen on one specific OS or on multiple ones?

Re: 2 Questions about BGPic-Function

Create an offscreen BGPic and then draw to it using SelectBGPic() together with #SELMODE_COMBO so that all drawing commands render to the color and alpha channel of the BGPic. When you're finished preparing your BGPic in this way, simply call EndSelect() and DisplayBGPic() to bring it to the front.

I don't have any but it wouldn't be hard to write one.

That's normal behaviour. The BGPic's shape will act as a mask for all drawing operations. If you do not want that, you have to draw to an offscreen BGPic and then switch to this BGPic to make the changes visible.

Re: How to get access to embedded/linked files?

I'm writing a small installer that will copy two files embedded in the installer. The files are in the executable, but I do not have access to them. With the relative path (win7, hw4.7: "blabla\\file.exe" | aos3.9, hw4.8: "blabla/file.exe "), as they were embedded, it does not work. How to get acce...

Re: iif evaluates both conditions?

This is already mentioned in the IIf() documentation with exactly the same example :)
