Mason is indeed working on large versions of all his icons and I was able to get some preview versions for RapaGUI 2.0 and the Hollywood IDE.
Yes. RapaGUI 2.0 introduces support for the Hollywood icon type which means that RapaGUI will automatically choose the correct image to use for the current device's screen pixel density. This makes it possible to get perfectly crisp pixel graphics even on high dpi systems. Unfortunately, the documentation of RapaGUI 2.0 isn't finished yet but I have already adapted all of the examples. Here is a snapshot of the examples taken from the current RapaGUI 2.0 master: http://www.softwarefailure.de/tmp/examples.zip You should be able to figure out how to use icons with RapaGUI 2.0 by looking at the examples (e.g. TextEditor, Demo, VideoPlayer, SongPlayer.... all of those use icons now)
Ask Mason and be polite?
Really huge update. I'm impressed...
Btw, behind the scenes RapaGUI on Android is really MUI on Android... you might know that it all started with MUI Royale. To create RapaGUI, I wrote a MUI backend for wxWidgets and then MUI Royale was able to become RapaGUI. For Hollywood 8 I finally wrote a MUI backend for Android now, so behind the scenes it's all pure MUI
Huh? The following news item has been on http://www.hollywood-mal.de/ since January 10th...
10-Feb-2019: Hollywood 8: Supremacy jetzt erhältlich!
Nach zwölfmonatiger Entwicklungszeit freut sich Airsoft Softwair ganz besonders, die sofortige Verfügbarkeit von Hollywood 8: Supremacy bekanntgeben zu können. Hollywood 8.0 ist ein riesiges Update mit vielen neuen Features und Verbesserungen. Eine detaillierte Auflistung aller Neuerungen gibt es hier.
Which ones are you talking about specifically? Details please, or it's FUD.Then i read some of the old bugs are not solved.
Sure. You don't get an iPhone 8 for free either just because you bought an iPhone 7. Why should it be different for software? Hollywood is a real monster effort because of the multitude of platforms involved and maintaining such a complex project supporting a ridiculous number of platforms is extremely difficult and let's not forget all the plugins that you get entirely for free on top of it (and those plugins are also available for a ridiculous number of platforms!) and then there are the thousands of pages of documentation. And all this is available for an insanely cheap price and still you want all that for free, forever, just because you bought it once? Seriously?This means wait one more year for next version ? And pay it again ?
Once again, which bugs are you talking about?So i will wait for next release ( or the release after next release) until the bugs removed.
Nobody is forced to do anything. The math is really simple here: If you want to see more work and effort put into Hollywood, you should better buy the update because that's what finances future developments after all. I can only keep on improving Hollywood as long as there are enough sales to warrant my efforts. Doing this all for free is not an option at all, sorry, because Hollywood has become far too complex for that.Then we must pay nearly new price for the update.
In App Store if I buy app I always have free updates. It is normal. In this case...airsoftsoftwair wrote: ↑Sat Feb 23, 2019 11:53 pmNobody is forced to do anything.
