Re: Incorrect screen size in Shadow of the Beast

I think maybe the game is switching between low res and med res; the picture is low res and scrolling text is med. In that case shouldn't this be considered a bug? Or am I just missing something :) ...

Re: Incorrect screen size in Shadow of the Beast

The crisp setting is indeed set, but not quite sure why that should cause this. But I am no expert :). I just realised that my 3.7.3 version is DirectDraw and as I said there it works like its supposed to. The other versions are using D3D ... and D3D is driving me bonkers right now!

Incorrect screen size in Shadow of the Beast

I just ran into a somewhat odd problem in STEEM. I was doing some recording of Shadow of the Beast and oddly enough the load screens with the scrolling text is in the wrong size. The rest of the game is fine, but the load screens are smaller, in full screen mode at least. Haven't had time to toy aro...

Re: STEEM D3D Blit Error with Mirillis Action

The sound problem usually fixes itself after a couple of minutes or so. But I will try the start and stop method next time. I saw that you had relesed 3.9.4, just haven't had time to test it yet. Saw that you hade made it possible to recover from "Blit errors" ... so maybe that could be he...

I came across my audio problem again in STEEM 3.9.3, hasn't happened for quite some time. Since I promised to upload the audio the next time I encountered it, here's a link Steven : http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=53237284481820282895

Re: STEEM D3D Blit Error with Mirillis Action

Thx. In what version does it become a problem? 3.9.2? Do you also have the problem without option 'C2'? Does the current 3.9.4 beta make a difference? I believe it was in the version were you introduced the higher frequencies, was it 3.9.1? I don't quit remember the exact version number. But of the...

Re: STEEM D3D Blit Error with Mirillis Action

That's fine too. When you select 384Khz, Windows probably limits SR to 200Khz. With the new anti-aliasing filter, it's not necessary to go so high anyway, 44.1Khz is OK now. Maybe you will have less crackling so. I have tried changing the frequency to various values including 44.1KHz and also messe...

Re: STEEM D3D Blit Error with Mirillis Action

Precisely, what are your sound options? Is it with/without options Sound/Sampled YM2149 and SSE/C2? Is the ST accelerated? Does it happen in monochrome, colour, STE, STF? To be honest, sometimes I have crackling too, after some stop and start, and the only cure is reset the ST. Haven't figured out ...

Re: STEEM D3D Blit Error with Mirillis Action

I got curious and tried running 3.9.3 on my Win 8 laptop with Action running in the background. I don't get a Blit Error any more here, nor does the emulator window freeze in full frame mode. But there is still something rotten in the state of Denmark. When I pause emulation in full screen mode and ...

Re: STEEM D3D Blit Error with Mirillis Action

I tried "run as administrator", didnt make any difference sadly. I suspect the problems lies with Action, NVIDIA drivers or Windows... or maybe all three of them. I might contact Mirillis and see what they say. I was just curious to hear what you thought of the problem... BTW just noticed ...

Thanks for replying Steven! Sorry for the crashes, especially in fullscreen, I know it's a pain, believe me I've had my deal during development. I partly blame Windows.

I have been having some issues with my D3D versions of STEEM SSE when having Mirillis Action running. When I pause and then unpause the emulation I get a BLIT ERROR. And if I am in full screen mode I cant stop STEEM or minimize the window, can't even access the task manager to terminate STEEM. I hav...

Looking for info about / photo of musician Paul Shields

I have been doing some research on composer Paul Shields. He made the music for Airball, Jug, Tetra Quest and a few others. One of my favourite ST composers! But I have been unable to find any information about him, so I thought I would see if anyone here knows anything? And maybe even have a photo ...

I think this was one of the first released commercial games for the ST, if not the first. I think Steve coded it in basic and he later admitted that he wasn't particularly proud of it :D

Re: There are tons of BEST of threads, how about the WORST ST games?

Ah yes, a few comes to mind right off the bat: - ST Protector: Some sort of Defender clone I think, or maybe I am misremembering.
