Yeah, I did read through the compatibility page they have, at least what was in English, anyway. I was worried that was the case...
Very cool to see someone who knows ivywindy giving an update. Thank you!Oh, I didn't realize invwindy is already here.
Well, she just got a game designer job after her graduation, recently. Congratulations!
Thus, she is likely very very very very very very....very busy at this moment. I mean...she didn't just disappear or was ignoring you guys.
And, yes, she already knew many of those issues.
I personally annoyed her with video play problems and bitmap problems a lot. (I'm using super big bitmaps that even beyond DX9/DX11's texture limits. It may happen if you make window content based on the number of items it has when you have a very large number of procedurally generated items... )
About the video playback problem, I did some investigation.
The video must be the same framerate as the game to avoid speed-up problems.
For example, you will need to make sure the WMV is at 60FPS and the game is at 60FPS at the same time. If they are different, the speed of the video will either be too slow or too fast.
The audio and the video are technically played separately. By default, the audio will keep play while graphics will stop when the window lost focus. (Just like RMVA).
A possible fix will be to add some code in RGD's window on-lose-focus call-back function. (or just make graphics keep updating when losing focus)
Personally, I do not play video on "Graphics". I play them in a "sprite".
About release games with RGD on Steam. As long as you do not use Steam's DRM, the exe file will be the same. However, some anti-virus software will still scream "malware" to you. Just throw them a sample file and email them to whitelist the game.
I'm using it right now. So far, no problem yet. (In a closed beta for almost a month by now)
I will start my public beta at the end of March(under the disguise of "demo")
I'm using RGD1.4.1 right now. Mostly because I'm using RMXP's tilemaps no need to upgrade it to 1.5.4 or 1.6(And yes.... 1.6 has some audio bugs...)
Unfortunately, I have no information about their schedule. And there seems no plan to open source RGD right now. Maybe we will know when invwindy settles down.Very cool to see someone who knows ivywindy giving an update. Thank you!
I love RGD as it makes VX Ace better in so many ways. I hope that if ivywindy and fux2 ever get burned out that the source code will at least be released to the community, as it would suck for it to be totally abandoned.
Do you know if development is still happening or is planned to continue or is it stalled indefinitely?
