software OS4   software OS4 : Excalibur 1.2 released
   posted by NutsAboutAmiga on 16-Dec-2012 18:22:55 (1865 reads)
I'm least to tell you that new version of Excalibur is ready, and has been uploaded to OS4Depot.net. I hope this will give some Xmas feeling.

Read more --->




This is one of the biggest updates and all known problems have been fixed. A large part of the application has been rewritten, so it needed a lot of testing.

Great :) Will try when home. Tried it, had some crashes while quitting excalibur.

Tried transparency function and its nice but what i was wondering, will you make it possible to choose to use borderless in future or maybe i missed it somewhere in the prefs ?

Never crashes her, please do not run more then one excalibur at any given time, the treading in the application might not be able to deal whit it.

And please post stack trace, so might find where it crashes because it has never crashed on exit her.

I might also need your configuration files to reproduce the problem, if this a result of some experimentation.

Try "menu border" = XEN or 3D.

If you do not wont 3D, XEN or Textures, then remove the textures from texture tab, but keep border style to texture, this remove all styling, the result should be what you call borderless.

The texture load routine does not care about styling, you be wasting RAM if you do not remove the textures from texture tab.

I probably had a second instance of excalibur opened last time i tried as now i dont get any crashes when quitting.

About the borderless i was choosing wrong name. Sorry. In Amistart its called dont render Background and in excalibur it says "table border". Would be nice if you hade also a function that is called "no render" in menu/border style.

I hope you know what i mean.

User sanity check added to excalibur, in the next version you will be prevented from running the program twice.

@Severin

The video memory meter is now fixed,
But I do not know how to reproduce the problem you have whit 2Gbytes RAM modules.

Do you use the addchip parameter on setpatch?

I think the best way solve your problem is just to remove 1 Giga byte of memory then it should display right amount of free memory.
