Re: New QLiberator v3.37

Hi everyone, We now consider the next round of improvements, bug fixes, etc. Here is the list so far ... + Add a binary-chop method to detect_screen_limits, defined at line 32524. The extra speed gained should lead to the compiler starting up almost instantly! + Use environment variables to record t...

Re: QLiberator decompiler

The last time I tried this I got ambiguous name errors for SCRXY and WINDSZ, and so could not even get any compilations. On one other earlier try, I did successfully get it to work, both for the _wrk file and also for the _sav file. The results were identical. I would guess that the problem might li...

Re: New QLiberator v3.37

a) Loading takes several seconds (about 5), the previous version was pretty much instant. Is that expected? I have noticed this long loading time myself. It seems that the larger screen sizes take a proportionately longer time for it to start up. I could be wrong, but my guess is that it's got some...

Re: New QLiberator v3.37

But if you have ended the compilation, press space, move the window, stop the program, EX it again, the position is as you have left. So the data must be written after every move and return to QLIB_BIN (as QLibs ALCHP is lost of course when you stop the program). QLibs ALCHP does not get lost - as ...

Re: New QLiberator v3.37

If, every time a new QLIB compile is started, the above line is executed, then that location would be overwritten with zeroes. Does it perhaps need to be used once only in a BOOT file? That way, all the info would remain intact. But if you have ended the compilation, press space, move the window, s...

Re: New QLiberator v3.37

I've also found out how to move the console around outside of the 512x256 rectangle, except for the QLIB_USE giving an error message when the window is closed. I think, this error comes, because QLib's Pointer I/F extensions use a little data block in memory to save the main windows position on scr...
