Help and Questions / Re: New user to OpenMPT who is blind
« Last post by Saga Musix on September 14, 2017, 19:12:27 »
Sorry, I was actually more thinking of Diamond as he's already familiar with with the issue tracker. :)
Reporting an issue is the same as reporting a feature request, it's just a matter of selecting the correct severity level, "feature". And even if it's not reported in the correct category, we can always fix it manually. But I prefer people to submit their ideas by themselves since they know best what they need.

Just looked at the issue tracker and because I'm not really familiar with such things and don't have a lot of time today, I wasn't able to figure out exactly how to fill out the submission form for a feature request instead of an issue. If someone else can put it there, go ahead and do it, or else I will try more thoroughly later.

I probably won't have time to look into this before the 1.27 release, so in order for it to not be forgotten, can you please sum up the results of the latest discussion here as a feature request on the issue tracker?

Nah!, this is just an old netbook that I want to make use of and it runs on XP.

It's not worth the headache of fiddling around with the registry.

I've found out that Milky and Schism fit nicely though.

Nevertheless, thank you for all the suggestions :-)

I don't know what windows this Eee PC runs, but if it doesn't run windows 10, you can apply a DPI hack and set it to anything lower than 100% and it will work. I would suggest not going lower than 80% because below that it will become very hard to read text, but it might make that little difference.

Changing the DPI to a lower value than 100% requires a registry tweak and a reboot, and for that reason is not without risk. So if you go this route, only do it if you are comfortable around the registry editor. Any failure as a result from not being careful enough is on you.

A typical thing that can happen is a way too high DPI setting making it so that you have one char that fits the whole screen and thus can't do anything anymore, or text that is too small to read. Either cases will make it hard to undo if you don't know enough of pc's. So I guess make plenty backups first so you can safely reinstall windows in case things went wrong.

Help and Questions / Re: Possibly improve Nearest Neighbor filter

@PiotrGrochowski: Just because you want a feature in doesn't mean it will happen.

It has been said enough times that it won't happen and that the difference are insignificant, but you seem to think that your opinion is more important than the developers and other users.

Frankly, as administrator of this forum, I feel the duty to step in, and therefor I'm going to lock the topic. If you want this feature so badly, learn to program and add it in yourself. But be warned, OpenMPT may become slow and crash often as a result.

Stop thinking in frequency domain, it's not relevant.

Please kindly add that nearest neighbor that even works as an option and everything will be okay. No other program has rounding errors with integer scaling, so copy source code of them.

In case you have not figured them out yourself already, a couple of more (mostly obvious) hints:
  • auto-hide the windows taskbar
  • use a classic windows theme and reduce scrollbar, window border and window title sizes
  • you can drag the OpenMPT toolbar from the top of the window, resulting in a floating window toolbar which frees up even more vertical space

It might be worthwhile for us (if simple enough) to add a hidden option to hide the status bar in OpenMPT.

But as Saga Musix already said, 800x480 is too low a resolution for us to consider when designing the GUI. I own an Eee PC 1000H myself, so I can regularly try OpenMPT in 1024x600, but 800x480 is a significant step down even from that resolution.

Yes, that netbook has an odd design with the speakers on the sides of the screen.

Thanks for the info ;-)
