Re: does this work with windowed games?

That is something I will need to investigate; I seem to have slow framerate on my i7-7700k/GTX1080 system too. I checked with FRAPS and yes I am seeing a drop from 30 to 15 fps in-game. I will have to investigate further as I may be missing the vertical blank or something. I'll look at earlier versi...

Re: does this work with windowed games?

I have begun development of the scaling mode. Please note I plan on retiring the Bugzilla instance, and when I do so I will let you know the location of the bug tracker.

P.S. Life is getting busy again, but I will see how much time I can give to developing this complex new feature.

Re: does this work with windowed games?

Sorry, things got a bit busy for me and I ended up releasing 0.5.17 with only minor changes. It is now slated for 0.5.18 once I finish getting overlays working.

Re: Building Issues (MSVC08)

Strange; I just unzipped the DXGL source code to a fresh VM with Visual C++ 2008 Express SP1 and it built fine. Next I'll try skipping the build dependencies and see if I can get it to not build. Make sure you aren't trying to build the "Debug no DXGL" target, as it is very buggy and may only build ...

Re: Windows 7 -- Configuration Manager Broken?!

The COM fix adds a registry entry in the user registry that gives ddraw.dll a relative path when accessed via COM. It isn't needed for ZC as Allegro uses DirectDrawCreateEx to create the DirectDraw object.

As for the ddraw.dll crash I will look into it in the coming days.

Re: Windows 7 -- Configuration Manager Broken?!

I do believe static linking would run into LGPL issues as that would mean including nonfree code in the binary. However, the runtimes required are the x86 versions of msvcr100.dll and msvcp100.dll This package contains the fully updated versions of the runtimes: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl...

Re: Building Issues (MSVC08)

The header is auto-generated, but I guess I missed the pre-build step in the project files for Visual Studio 2008. You can make the build run through using the attached files - unzip them to the common folder.

Re: Windows 7 -- Configuration Manager Broken?!

Here are the configuration files I have come up with: https://dxgl.org/download/etc/dxgl-zc-cfg.zip There are three Include directives at the end of dxgl.cfg - uncomment just the one you want for a particular fullscreen configuration, and as mentioned disregard them for window mode and use zc.cfg/zq...
