For example, Bandit Kings mgc let me a black screen on start. I set up a “start” action for this game that show the “intro” layer. I also set up a lot of Pixel traps to trigger specific screens and hide/show layers accordingly, for this game. But if I let the pixel trap function enabled, the “start” action is cancelled immediatly. It’s like some pixels traps running every frames and trigger their “hide all layer” action at every frame. Really difficult to explain it properly since I don’t really know what is happening.
On other hand my Tomb Raider mgc seems to works :/16. August 2023 at 13:15 in reply to: VERY slow startup – Might and Magic 3 – Isles of Terra #10467
Yes I see, it sounds obvious. But the biggest issue I have is for example:
My Bandit kings of ancient China profile always work on my S7, but when I try to use it on my p30 it seems the pixel trap has difficulty to work sometime it catch the right screen, most on the time, it’s not.
Even more weird: I did my Sherlock Holmes profile on the p30, was working few at the time I published it here. Now it’s not anymore and I still have the same p30… again, seems pixel trap but I’m not sure xD16. August 2023 at 11:39 in reply to: VERY slow startup – Might and Magic 3 – Isles of Terra #10465
I have issues with profiles too. Since I change my phone (Samsung S7 to Huawei p30 pro) my own profiles (the more complex ones, involving pixel traps) don’t work anymore and since recent version of magic dosbox, some texts are cut or misaligned. A change in how font are rendered I guess? I think some profiles needs to be redone.
Hi ! New version released, for players who prefer to keep original aspect ratio 😉
Look at last screenshots.
I could be wrong but everything you can do with standard dosbox can be done with magic dosbox (or almost) since it’s a standard dosbox port.
Ok so I don’t know if results will help:
(Results are between 15-30/5-8/55-70. Very flexible.
Direct c++ results are:
Hi ! I’m sorry I tried to test it on my Huawei P30 pro (android 10) and cannot get working.
When I click on ‘All Files’ it open me the app informations. I can uninstall it or force it to stop and get some information about data. I take care to let the app access to the storage. But the folder saftest isn’t created. Do I have to create this folder myself?
Great ! It sounds clear to me that the pixel trap might be the cause of your problem. It could be because the widget was disabled (because pixel trap disabled it due to the cursor) that it simply “didn’t work”.
The move mouse trick is a good way to deal with the cursor annoyance. I used it in a lot of adventure games layout where you want the user click on the screen to do the action but don’t want the ugly cursor stay on the place where the user click. I usually move it after a click on the down right (or left) corner of the screen. Good way to hide it.
Good luck for next steps 👍
Maybe it could work by calling another deadly strike/combo widget ?
I mean in your widget:
And in the new combo called previously:
Wait X ms
Anyway, the Al_ex solution sounds way easier
The gestures (as double click and swipes) work on top of widget only if the widget is set to ‘non blocking’.
Why you didnt add ? I don’t know XD24. August 2021 at 23:27 in reply to: Jonathan (1993) – mouse not working on parts of the screen #8974
I didn’t test this game, but I can confirm it happen on some others games. Can’t remember wich ones. Low cycles are the solution as Al_ex said.
You can even use Pixel Trap for deeper functions, like changing how some games work to make them better with touchscreen. I did this for Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes. Pixel Trap are just miraculous.
Looks like a great layout ! I never played Ultima series or Might and Magic, but now I want to try !
For your mouse concern, the Mouse widget allow you to do that (setting the duration to ‘permanent’). It should work but I never tested.
I encourage you to finish your layouts. You look like to be able to say you mastered Magic Dosbox soon. Pixel Traps will be the next level of your mastering XD.
