  • Autoplay DirectX GUI conversion

    Hey Autoplay fans and foes!

    some very good news regarding the next version of this software. I am about 98% thru completing the BiltBlt --> DirectX GUI conversion for public release in the next version, which has taken quite a while (over a month since my last release now!) but has been well worth the efforts!!!

    Just tested a build with my mp3car system (running an EPIA 800) and it runs fantastic!!! All the scroll in/out slowdowns that are a problem with the EPIA's with the current 1.31 release are ALL GONE.... this thing is now smooth as you could hope for which is good news for you AutoPlay/EPIA users (you know who you are!)

    so expect the next release within the next week, not much else will be added except for the DirectX GUI, but for EPIA 800 users it will be well worth the download...

    and in closing.... DX kicks over BitBlt!!
    Project - GAME OVER :(

    Any possibility of squeezing in a quick and dirty shutdown option to this next release?

                    i know... sorry all the DirectX color/pallete system has been doing my head in sadly.. I can get things 100% in 32bit color, but once running in 16bit (what I have my EPIA set to...) the colors go all funny....

                    so im keen to get that resloved before releasing the next version - its very annoying, but im spending all the time I can making it happen...


                    EDIT : its just past midnite, and I think I have cracked it in true microsoft style, we have "DirectDraw colors" and "GDI colors" both requiring a different method to calculate... got it now working in both 16-bit and 32-bit color depths on my desktop PC - gonna test it in the car tomorrow and if all is well, then its ready to go out the door

                          Although we really DO appreciate it when you post updates, even if it's just to say Hi !

                          After this conversion, are we gonna see any different resolutions any time soon ?
