Qjewels

Postby Derek_Stewart » Mon Mar 12, 2018 9:10 pm

Hi,

I have been trying to run Qjewels in Q68 DIP_MODE 6 - 512x384 Mode 33. This being the fastest Q68 Hi-Colour mode. But this screen mode does not have enough resolution.

It does run in DISP_MODE 7 - 1025x768 Mode 33.

I would like to use the 512x384 modd. Is tge source available to implement this screen mode


Regards,

Derek

Derek,
yes, the sources are available to anyone who wants them. Simply send me a PM or e-Mail. To do what you have in mind, they are not needed, however (The full game is also a bit tricky to build with Turbo, all the bitmap resources and extensions and config blocks, and I never got around to write a proper build procedure):

Simply use menuconfig and configure the game to "Size of User Interface: Small" and it will come up with a 252x258 pixel window with small icons and run happily in the Q68 "small" screen mode.

I could claim QJewels was written with the Q68 in mind, but that would be lying ;)

Tobias

Hi Tobias,

I should known that there was config blocks.

I will configure tomorrow and try it on the Q68.

Just for completeness, the fastest Hi-Colour mode is the Q60-like 512x256 (DISP_MODE 2). But 512x384 is my favorite.

Hi,

I have configured Qjewels with Menuconfig to use small icons.

Qjewels runs great in Q68 DISP_MODE 6: 512×384 MODE 33.

I find this resolution suitable for most my needs.


Regards,

Derek
