    Just like the default for gestures should be off
    The default is not to use GDI+ cause not all machines support it (also, the dll needs registering).

    There's no disadvantage using JPGs on GDI+, in fact I think its even faster too.

    Regarding gestures.. doomed if you do, doomed if you don't.. I'm sure by setting it default to off, that the questions would be "why I can't use on screen "drawing" commands on my RR?" :P

    How can someone tell if their machine does not support it?

    BTW you got any documentation on your GDI+ dll as I might want to try to get my plugins stealthable

    That is currently the default setting (gdi+) but that doesn't stop them from changing it. And don't have to worry about the reg thing either

    Gestures, you mean you don't like them or like reading posts about "what is it" or "how do I get rid of them.." lol

    It just dawned on me that if for some forsaken reason they choose it and they don't have the dll file, that there is no check for that...hmmmm (added to next update..)

    Yeah, I change/add so much stuff to RR it's too much of a choir to update the base plugin.. I honestly hope the Extension plugin interface to replace it all.. anyway, to answer your question.. the GDIPlusWrapper I got from that VBAccelerator website.. so you can download the sources there and see all the properties, inner workings and such.. the thing is, there were a lot of BUGS in it.. so I had to fix it up first.. but the functions are virtually the same I believe.. Still probably easier to strip down the code of RR than to add/change the code to the base plugin...

    Well I don't actually use your base plugin for my plugins/programs. I started from scratch and worked out my own way of doing the skinning using your/coyote's skins as template.


    I have looked at the wrapper from VBAccelerator and the RR source and am not sure what I am looking at, at the moment. .

    I was hoping you could just copy the relevant parts from the RoadRunner code so I could look at what you added and what references the .dll without all the other stuff around it. IE get that spoon out and feed me

    OK so if the GDI is the default and as Guino says there is also benefit to having normal skins run in that mode there is no need for skinchecker to tell you what sort of skin it is.


    However what you need is a check for whether the system can use the GDI stuff, a question which guino neatly side stepped. :hmmmm:


    As far as gestures go I originally hated them as I don't use them, however I have started to use them, there is no only two things I don't like about them.

    1. having to go through my skins to add NG areas to certain parts of them.

    2. The how do I get rid of them, what are these alien space blobs on my screen questions.
