Re: Might & Magic Compatibility Layer (Tool)

Wanted to add one more thing, Emjayen. The very first time I ran M&M with the GF 2.0 patch and mmcl .03a, mouselook worked perfectly! I must've run through some things in the game for 30 minutes or so and mouselook was functioning fine--I remember because I had read your note about it breaking ...

Re: Might & Magic Compatibility Layer (Tool)

Ah, nice find. The reason it's crashing with greater resolutions is because the game is also being switched to software-2D mode with your fix, and support for greater resolutions requires the game to use its hardware-2D path. While trying to fix this myself I managed to produce the exact same behavi...

Re: Might & Magic Compatibility Layer (Tool)

The mouse problem is a known issue and is the current priority to be fixed.

Glad to hear it's helped otherwise :)

Re: Might & Magic Compatibility Layer (Tool)

Cool! I'm surprised how much better everything actually looks in good resolution. I didn't notice problems with filtering. It's going to be great when it's done. Yeah, I, too was surprised. Particularly at how well the UI turned out given it's simply bilinearly scaled -- point filtering may even gi...

Thanks for the detailed report.

It appears you have a compatibility-mode enabled; try disabling it.

Might & Magic Compatibility Layer (Tool)

I've written this tool [MMCL] to provide better compatibility for Might & Magic 6, 7 and 8 with modern kernels by emulating the old DirectX APIs the game uses, solving a few common issues (e.g, "flickering", performance, ect) and better compatibility with tools such as screen-capture s...

Re: MMExtension v2.1 + MMEditor v2.1 Level Editor [Apr 22, 2016]

@J. M. Sower I haven't looked into how resources are encoded, but I can tell you the game uses a 0x3FF (A1R5R5R5) color key in all UI rendering for masking transparent regions -- there are also rendering artifacts (around the edges) in the party screen aswell which is probably related to the root pr...

A closer look at MM7's particle effects.

http://i.imgur.com/DRBjBsg.png Observed while debugging a tool I'm working on. Although clearly nothing more than lit primitives, it's a nice contrast to how missiles are typically projected. Note: This is not a "mod", it's simply the game engine coerced into rendering at 1024x768 during ...

Is it with the latest version of my patch? 1.1, your patch fixes the bug. I looked over the source, may have been this: //----- A beam of Prismatic Light in the center of screen that doesn't disappear var FixPrismaticBugStd: function(size, unk: uint):ptr cdecl; function FixPrismaticBug(size, unk: u...

I found some code in Deasembler but i don't know any way to use it. What do you think?

It could be the mp3 format you're using for mm7 (although I doubt it) -- http://laserblue.org/mm7-mp3.zip try these.

I don't know much about how GrayFace has implemented his patch, however one thing you can do to rule it out being something simple is: ⋅ Download API Monitor (32-bit)] ⋅  Run API Monitor (32-bit) ⋅  On the API filter window, select the Capture tab then check Data Access...

Re: Question for GrayFace

Your compatibility mode also messes with mouse position, when I run the game the party is constantly spinning (I'm playing with mouse look). Interesting -- the mouse cursor has been a headache for awhile now, even though MMCL doesn't actually modify its behavior at all, it must be some indirect con...

Re: Question for GrayFace

Yeah, I've known about mm7restool for awhile -- very cool. I'm curious as to how you managed to support 1280x1024 (or any arbitrary resolution) for the game's 3D rendering? The usage of pretransformed vertices, culling for 640x480, etc suggests it's quite hard-coded. Are you going open source with y...
