Re: Forum spam

Interestingly, the majority of recent spammers have Indian IP addresses.
Reminds me of phone scammers, who also quite often seem to be based in India (warning: explicit language / cursing):

Re: Settings window

Maybe it would be nice if you could summon a settings window through a pause menu, something like this:

Interesting trick there at 4:16. Apparently the mirror pushes you back when it appears. I wonder why that even works...

Re: SDLPoP; David's open-source port of PoP

Made some changes to the timer-related code: https://github.com/NagyD/SDLPoP/pull/146 The frame timings should now be more stable and the code became simpler. :) I also added the possibility to draw overlays (e.g. the debug timer), with partial transparency and at an update frequency that is indepen...

Re: SDLPoP and SDL 2.0.6

Is there any fix for this? I have the same problem as @Falcury even with the latest SDL2_mixer 2.0.2 and latest SDL 2.0.8 dev version from GitHub.com/SDL-Mirror. There is no popping or distortion anymore when the end of level door opens or closes, which is good. But now all digital sounds sound muf...

Re: Settings window

I experimented with rendering a menubar as an overlay, on this branch.
None of the menu items do anything, so it's not really usable. But it has been a good exercise, at least.

Re: Forum spam

And I think this recent user is too. They appear to look for a thread they feel they can easily comment on and then later their signature is changed (probably by a bot). It also means reCAPTCHA isn't working, because actual humans do some of the spam work (the challenge–response and making a single...

Re: Settings window

Where/how does all this influence whether a mixer is used and music played... Actually, I don't think that option is doing anything, because setting it to false doesn't disable music. Is this an exception or have more options not been implemented yet? I think this is an exception. Yeah, it looks li...

Re: Forum spam

Here's another one, again with the same naming scheme and similar content: http://forum.princed.org/viewtopic.php?f=114&p=22161#p22161 Hm, do the bans still remain in place, if the associated accounts are entirely removed? I would guess so, because the admin control player has separate lists with al...

Re: Settings window

It looks like Allegro (which is used by MININIM) has built-in support for menus: http://liballeg.org/a5docs/trunk/native_dialog.html#menus That's why he could add it in a cross-platform way... I have tried very hard to get SDL2 and GTK (Allegro uses GTK for its UI elements on X) to cooperate within...

Re: SDLPoP and SDL 2.0.6

However, some people are still having problems: https://discourse.libsdl.org/t/sdl-2-0-7-released/23279 Testing with the 2.0.7 DLL and listening carefully, I am also noticing now that the digital sounds are somehow 'muted' / 'noisy', as if the signal has been lossily compressed. I also have the sam...

Re: Places where you can get stuck

If you manage to push the first guard in level 7 through the chomper, you can create this situation where you're stuck without the option of suicide: Level 7 stuck.png Unfortunately, I needed cheats to get to this point. The problem is, it becomes impossible (I think) to pass the guard after you've ...
