Re: zDesk

I don't. Please see the attached picture, and I will explain some of the reasons why I find Windom "bad". I understand your point of view. I like to use the standard AES OBJECT too, but again, Windom is not bad. Technically, the AES code is much cleaner that many applications, the API eas...

Re: zDesk

I was afraid of Windom madness... Madness? I don't agree with you. Windom is a quite good library for beginner and the AES/VDI code is clean. If this library did not exist, I probably would never coded on Atari. But for a more complex project, It is clear that Windom is not suitable. May I ask how ...

Re: zDesk

- what library/framework do you use for programming zdesk? I don't use any library other than the MiNTLIB/GEMLIB. - how CPU usage almost never jump when you resizing or drag windows (but only when you add items to toolbar)?? coz of Aranym? There is a bug in zTask. Its CPU monitor stops to work afte...

Re: zDesk

I'm glad to read your comments so, first of all, thank you all for that :wink: CiH: About zView. As I have already said to Miro - the skillful coder who has maintained zView during my absence - this application is quite outdated, so for me, the current version is dead. zDesk will owns an image brows...

Re: zDesk

... I removed most of the code of my program leaving only the detection code only. (mainly to avoid you having to use a bucket while looking at it :oops: ) I hope I did not over-remove the codes. plus I did it like 2-3 years ago, so I cannot remember every line. Thanks for the code sample, I will l...

Re: zDesk

...Yes. The kernel has no concept of video RAM at all, since this is a low level thing and not part of GEMDOS. However, I guess someone could in the future implement some extra flags in Mxalloc() to allow allocation of video ram. Thanks you for your answers. If I need more informations, I will cont...

Re: zDesk

Thank you for the reply. So Icons will reside in the zDesk main resource file No, I think that the icons will be in a separate ressource file. and will be in the standard 2/16/256 Atari format. Yes and no. The icon will be in the standard format but Olivier is working on MyAES to support the TC ico...

Re: zDesk

It seems you focused quite a lot on the stuff usually lacking in Atari application; ergonomics, response to user interaction. Complete this application and we have a major contribution to the platform. I love Thing, but I really appreciate having a choice. I've browsed the zDesk sources, and I like...

Re: zDesk

Great ! And what about the "eye candy" department (namely icons) ? ldv As you can see on the first video, I have spent a fair bit of time working on the icons. Well, to be honest, a few are completely "stolen" from deviant art( like the trashcan) others are modified version of e...

Re: zDesk

When I reach the stage of optimisation or specific things - for example, unlike others desks, I would like that the USB/SD disks would be automatically mounted/unmounted to the desktop - I will contact you to ask if a development machine is available. You mean unlike this ? ;) Well, obviously I was...

Re: zDesk

Hi Mathias, On the one hand, I wanted to try it but on other hand, If I accepted, I would have felt obliged to produce something and and I wasn't sure that I would have found the motivation again. That is a real problem for several good developers. We have to think about how to minimize "pressu...

I did a short video with the news f...
