Feature request... It'd be great if it remembered video settings. I have to turn off filtering and resize every time I start up.
Make sure it's updating Classic99.ini when it exits - you may have a permissions problem that prevents it from updating it. You can also manually update the file - the manual documents all the relevant settings:
In the "VIDEO" section:
2 Super 2x
3 Super Ea
4 NTSC TV
0 Do not maintain aspect ratio (allow any size window)
1 Force aspect ratio (fix proportions of window)
0 Do not stretch (fastest)
1 DIB - use GDI to stretch
2 DX - use Direct-X to stretch
3 DX Full - use a full-screen Direct-X mode (set by fullscreenmode)
value Left (topX) and top (topY) coordinates of the window. -1 for both if not set.
Note: if this position is off screen, the values will be ignored.
-1 Custom – use ScreenX/ScreenY
1 1X normal TI resolution
2 2X normal TI resolution
3 3X normal TI resolution
4 4X normal TI resolution
Value Size of the window if ScreenScale is set to -1
And, set up joysticks, which I'm having problems with right now...
Under the "joysticks" section:
0 Do not map joysticks
1 Map joysticks using joy1mode and joy2mode
joy1mode (and joy2mode for joystick 2)
0 Keyboard (arrow keys and tab)
1 PC Joystick 1
2 PC Joystick 2
Figured it out (sorta - sound is better) but it doesn't work with my simple gamepad - which I have mounted into an arcade type joystick. I have a newer gamepad that does work fine, using the analog stick. Not nearly as accurate for me.
Classic99 uses an older joystick API. I've noticed some drivers slow things right down.
2nd all that.
3rd all that.
Read the manual.
Plus, i am still wishing classic99 had at least some sort of cassette support. (I'm odd like that.)
It's not that odd - I'm interested in it. It's just not that high a priority. There's no software under development that requires cassette support, and Classic99 is a programming tool. Anything else is just for kicks.
Unfortunately I'm too tied up to do much new development. That's why I set up a survey for people to vote where I spend my time. Classic99's updates are down at 5th after 36 replies. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8CJDR5C
Oh, and the ability for fullscreen to preserve aspect ration of 4:3.
I'm not really thrilled with full screen but I'm a little surprised it doesn't, since it's can only set 4:3 screen modes. I did a quick test here and if I set it with Scaling Mode->DX Full-><choose one>, it's 4:3, but if I hit alt-Enter, it stretches.
I should look at that.
Sorry guys. Between work and other projects Classic99 is slipping a bit.
