Have you compiled that program with Hollywood 8? Then it could be the incompatibility issue with RapaGUI 2.0, recently discovered by jPV.

the problem rarely occurs in me so it is difficult to identify
I will have to dismantle my code without knowing what to look for ... :shock:

crashlogs don't help me I don't understand them

Then it's getting difficult to fix it but from looking at the crashlog this doesn't really seem to be a Hollywood or MUI Royale bug anyway since the crash apparently occurs in newlib called from codesets.library. Are you running some beta components of OS4 or a beta version of newlib.library? Also check if you have the latest codesets.library.

I just gave a quick try at Pixy for MorphOS, and I have to say...

WOW!!

I don't work much with graphics and my drawing ability is kindergarden grade, but this looks very professional to me. And is still an alpha version!

I'd like to see v 1.0... Nice work!

I downloaded the program from MorphOS Storage now and had a quick test.

One thing I noticed immediately is that the program makes constant CPU load right after start even if I don't do anything. CPU usage is about 40% for Pixy on my Mac mini, so it isn't nice for an application program... games I understand, but this shouldn't be the case for a utility which you may want to keep open even when doing other things too.

So, maybe you have a busy loop somewhere... it would be better to try to use events for everything, or if that isn't possible, please add some more waits in the loops or call something less frequently.

I haven't tested it more yet, but surely looks really nice and I'll have to take a better look at features for sure.

BTW. should the Preferences menu be empty?

PS. and just moving the mouse makes 100% CPU load... I think there's room for optimizing and not all the slowness can be put for Hollywood's fault ;) You can make pretty quick stuff with Hollywood if you pay attention to performance related things...

@JPV
I have to redraw each time the mouse is moved because it has a drawing brush in the image ...

@all
Thank you

I may have found a bug with the localization: (Os4 and WinUAE Os3.9)

French catalog file : (pixy.catalog) => the last StringsCats one still has a writing problem

Code: Select all

; StringsCat$[0]
Non enregistré
; StringsCat$[1]
commerçe
; StringsCat$[2]
Vidéo
; StringsCat$[3]
Eté

Code: Select all

/* Nouveau projet Hollywood */

   ; This is our default English catalog
 
    def$ = {}
    def$[0] = "Unregistred"
    def$[1] = "Copyright 2016 - 2021 @"
    def$[2] = "VIDE"
    def$[3] = "VIDE"

    OpenCatalog("Pixy.catalog")
        
    ; If Hollywood.catalog is not available
    StringsCat$={}
    For k = 0 To listitems(def$)-1
    ;StringsCat$[k] = GetCatalogString(k, def$[k])
    StringsCat$[k] = ConvertStr(GetCatalogString(k, def$[k]),#ENCODING_AMIGA,#ENCODING_UTF8)
    Next
        
    CloseCatalog()

    For i=0 TO listitems(def$)-1
    debugprint(i,StringsCat$[i])
    NEXT

EscapeQuit(True)

/* Boucle infinie */
Repeat
        WaitEvent
Forever
